BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2010 Andy Gonzalez yo-yo'd from New Orleans to Miami whenever a minor injury created a momentary need on the big-league club.
2008 Andy Gonzalez is a strong-armed middle-infield organizational soldier, and his greatest endorsement is that he lasted long enough to make it to the majors, if only briefly. He was non-tendered in December.
2007 Andy Gonzalez isn`t seen as a prospect, but middle infielders who do a few things well and survive can drift into major league utility roles, and he`s on the 40-man.
