    Gonzalez has put up solid statistics in his two seasons at New Mexico JC, albeit while playing in extreme hitter-friendly environments. He stands out most for his plus athleticism and above-average defense, although some observers think that his small frame will push him to second base. He has good actions in the infield with an arm that grades from average to plus. Gonzalez isn’t projected to be an impact hitter at the pro level as he hasn’t used his hands well since lowering them in his batting stance. Regardless of how well he profiles as a hitter, Gonzalez’s defense and athleticism may be enough to get him drafted late on Day 2.
