Gonzalez played just 71 games in 2017, the first time he didn't play at least 156 games since 2005.

For his career, Gonzalez has a.288/.359/.488 batting line with 311 home runs and 1,176 RBIs in 1,875 games.
He is a five-time All-Star and a four-time Gold Glove victor. He was also an All-Star three times as a member of the San Diego Padres and once with the Boston Red Sox.
