Aaron Gleeman of NBCSports.com reported that Gonzalez was bending over at the waist in pain after running out a ground ball in the sixth inning of Sunday's game against the Philadelphia Phillies. Manager Walt Weiss said it's a minor injury that Gonzalez has played through. Gonzalez is considered day-to-day, although playing Monday is a good sign that he can continue to battle through the injury.
Gonzalez is in his seventh Major League season. He batted .242 with four home runs and 26 RBI as a rookie with the A's in 2008. Last season, Gonzalez was limited to 110 games due to injury and batted .302 with 26 home runs and 70 RBI. In 18 games this season, he is batting .282 with four home runs and 14 RBI.
