WTM’s PIRATE PLAYER PROFILES
|The Pirates signed Gonzalez in 2016. He wasn’t a prominent signee, but he was on the GCL roster to start the 2017 season. He was injured throughout the 2017-18 seasons, but made it to the DSL in 2019.
Gonzalez pitched in relief and missed a lot of bats while allowing only a .243 average and little power. Walks, however, were obviously a major problem.
Gonzalez should be in the US in 2021.
