Kubatko quotes the 29-year-old Gonzalez discussing his back tightness Monday morning. Said Gonzalez,
"I'm a lot better, looser. Just when I wake up in the morning, it's a little tight. But once I get going walking around, it feels a lot better."Gonzalez has looked very good in his first two Major League seasons. In all, he is 20-12 with a 3.58 ERA, 1.218 WHIP, and 2.5 average WAR. He pitched 171 innings last year in 30 games, 28 of them starts.
