Alex Gonzalez (knee) is making steady strides in his rehab and has a slight chance of returning this season.

"He's ahead of schedule, so I don't want to say no," manager Ron Roenicke told reporters on Wednesday when asked if Gonzalez might make it back in 2012. "He's probably got an appointment in a couple weeks, and if the doctor says he's ready to go, then we'll have to rethink what we're doing." Gonzalez underwent surgery to repair a torn ACL in his right knee back in mid-May.
