"I was really scared at the beginning because I didn't want to hit one ball off the end and get jammed and have that feeling that I was having before surgery," said Gonzalez, who was able to grip the bat better than he expected. "That's when [my finger] used to hurt really bad, but it felt really good. There was no pain."

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

"I don't even really think about it, because I haven't (worried) in the past, so why should I do it now? That's how baseball is. Sometimes, it treats you right. Sometimes, it treats you bad."
