"Especially the way the second half went for me," Gonzalez said, "if I finish strong, that's obviously going to be a good sign, and [the coaches and front office] want to see it as well. It really only depends on how everything keeps going, and obviously right now, it's good. Definitely excited."
Gonzalez, 31, is 2-5 with a 6.04 ERA in nine second half starts.
