Gonzalez was called an advanced defensive catcher, probably good enough to be in the GCL already. The scouting report also said his bat was behind, so his struggles are not a surprise. There are a lot of pitchers in this league that get by with low 80′s fastballs and advanced breaking balls and they tend to load up on the latter to get results. There is also very little command. I’m not down on him at all, I expected the slow start, a couple more hits would be nice, but no big deal yet, as long as it doesn’t affect his defense.

They are playing pro ball in the Dominican.
