After starting the season with the Norfolk Tides, the Mets top farm club, Gonzalez was promoted to the Mets in the middle of May and made his Met debut on May 13th against the Milwaukee Brewers.  He started the game and pitched five innings and allowed three runs but got a no decision in the Mets 9-8 victory.  He would start two more games for the Mets but with very little success before being traded to the Milwaukee Brewers.  In his three starts he pitched a total of 14 innings and posted a 7.71 ERA.  He finished out the season with the Brewers before moving on to pitch in Japan.

In 2008 Gonzalez tragically died when he was struck by lightning in his native Venezuela.

While with the Mets Gonzalez wore number 32.
