Brewers manager Ron Roenicke said Saturday that he wants Alex Gonzalez to get some work in a first base, potentially serving as the backup to Mat Gamel there until Corey Hart is ready to return from the DL.

In his 14-year career, Gonzalez has played exclusively at shortstop, but could be able to make the transition defensively. It would also be a way to get his powerful bat in the lineup more often, especially against tough left-handers.
