Gonzalez signed a minor league contract with the Tigers on Wednesday.
ANALYSIS
Gonzalez spent much of last season in Double-A Erie, hitting for a .283/.319/.393 slash line in 50 games. He did make two appearances at Triple-A Toledo, going 1-for-10 with a double. The 32-year-old is likely stuck in the minors indefinitely as he hasn't taken an at-bat in the MLB since 2013.

Gonzalez's defensive versatility (and certainly not his 578 OPS) earns him another season on the Nationals' bench. With two young middle infielders ahead of him on the depth chart he could end up seeing more action than he did in 2010, but that wouldn't be a good thing.
Gonzalez got his chance at the starting second-base job in 2009 but quickly demonstrated that he wasn't cut out for regular duty, and the Nationals seem determined this offseason to make sure they're never that desperate for middle-infield help again. He could stick around as a utility player off the bench, but it would be surprising if he received even half as many at-bats as he did last season.
His small sample line with the Nationals might have fooled them into thinking he can be a big league starter at second base or shortstop, but Gonzalez is a pure utility infielder with a decent glove and zero power or speed. Even if he wins a starting job in spring don't throw anything more than a desperation endgame dollar at him.
Gonzalez had a cup of coffee with the Yanks after rosters expanded in September, but he's got no legitimate power or stolen-base potential to speak of and the long-term upside for him is a utility/defensive-replacement role. Look for Wilson Betemit to be the fantasy-friendly utility option for the Yankees this season.
Gonzalez hits for a decent average and doesn't strike out much, making him a poor man's Erick Aybar. He doesn't have much power or speed, and projects as a sixth infielder, if that. He had no chance to leap over Stephen Drew or Alberto Callaspo in Arizona, but now in New York his chances of a midseason callup as a utility infielder are marginally better.
