Gonzalez (foot) played third base and went 0-for-3 with an RBI groundout in his spring debut Thursday, DK Pittsburgh Sports reports.
Manager Derek Shelton said he started Gonzalez at third base to put less stress on his foot. "We know the guy's an elite defender and he can play any three of those (second, shortstop or third)," Shelton said. Gonzalez is expected to serve as a utility infielder for Pittsburgh in 2020.

Gonzalez went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in a 9-2 victory against the Cubs on Tuesday.
It's been a rough year for Gonzalez, who began the season in April with a broken collarbone after a collision on a flyball. Largely because of that, Gonzalez has only played in 48 games and this was his first home run of the year. Better late than never. He is batting .236 with five extra-base hits, four RBI, 13 runs and four steals in 123 at-bats this season.
Gonzalez will start at shortstop and bat eighth Sunday against the Rockies.

Gonzalez has been out since fracturing his clavicle back in mid-April. He'll fill a bench role now that he's healthy. With a career .256/.293/.374 slash line over parts of four seasons, he's not a particularly interesting fantasy option even if injuries open up unexpected playing time.

Gonzalez has been on a rehab assignment for more than a month while recovering from the broken clavicle he sustained April 20. Through 20 games during his assignment at Triple-A Indianapolis, Gonzalez is hitting just .192 while striking out 35.8 percent of the time, but the Pirates seem to be satisfied with his health. His rehab window will expire Tuesday, so look for the Pirates to activate him on or before that day and install him as the top backup to everyday middle infielders Kevin Newman and Adam Frazier. Struggling third baseman Jung Ho Kang seems most at risk of losing his spot on the 40-man roster once Gonzalez is reinstated.

Gonzalez has been sidelined since mid-April with a fractured left clavicle, so he'll likely require a lengthy rehab stint before being cleared to rejoin the Pirates.

He could see starts against left-handed pitching at the expense of Adam Frazier.
Gonzalez (collarbone) will not serve as the team's everyday starter at shortstop when he returns, general manager Neal Huntington told 93.7 The Fan radio in Pittsburgh.

Gonzalez had served as the team's everyday shortstop prior to getting hurt, but Kevin Newman has since taken over those duties and performed well while also handling leadoff duties. Newman seems unlikely to surrender the top job once Gonzalez is back in the fold.
