Per John Blake on Twitter, the Rangers have formally recalled Chi Chi Gonzalez from AAA Round Rock. Gonzalez is slated to start for Texas on Sunday against the A's, which will allow Cole Hamels to slide back a day and start against Houston on September 14, as well as at Houston on September 25.
Gonzalez is 2-5 this year with a 4.25 ERA in 55 IP while in the majors, having made 9 starts. Gonzalez has a 3.57 ERA in 88.1 IP for Round Rock over 16 starts, and also threw two scoreless innings on Wednesday in the playoffs. Gonzalez's outing was short so that the Rangers would be in a position to bring him up for the spot start Sunday.
