Gonzalez, who missed the final two months of the season with a sprained right middle finger, opted against the surgery after playing in instructional-league games last week in Arizona.
Gonzalez told the Post that he believes that believes his finger will heal if he does not swing a bat until December.
“I went to Arizona, and played, and it felt fine,” Gonzalez told the paper. “It has gotten a lot better. I am going to rest it, and I should be good to go for spring training.”
