When Gonzalez is pulled from a game, he doesn't head to the bench. Instead, he jogs over to the clubhouse and keeps his cardio going. "As soon as I'm done pitching, I will go into the weight room and I'll do a good 20 minutes of cardio just to flush out the arm, to get some of the lactic acid in there out,” he explains. "I don't like the icing process. I think it's only good for swelling." He completes his postgame workout with shoulder stretches. Then he reemerges to "watch the rest of the game with the guys."
