Alex Gonzalez 1B/SS.. DET Dec 19 '78
Alex Gonzalez is expected to be the Brewers' Opening Day first baseman.
All 1,903 of Gonzalez's games as a professional have come as a shortstop, but the Brewers are lacking options following the knee injuries to Corey Hart and Mat Gamel. The veteran infielder admits to not feeling comfortable at the position yet. "I can tell you it's not easy," he said. "You have to move around. It's totally different (from shortstop). I try to make adjustments and relax and let things happen. I'm doing the best I can."
