Happy # 52 Juan Gonzalez

We say happy birthday to Juan Gonzalez who was born on this day in Puerto Rico in 1969.

He played with the Rangers from 1991 to 1999.  Juan was an amazing hitter and a key component of the Rangers' divisional titles in '96, '98 and '99 plus winning the AL MVP in 1996 & 1998.  Gonzalez' power 
totals in Texas were amazing:   296 HR & 1059 RBI from 1991 to 1999.    In other words, Juan was one of the best run producers of the 1990's. 

Gonzalez was traded to Detroit after the '99 season.  He was never the same player due to injuries and other issues.   
Where is Juan now?  He has declined invitations to Rangers' events and kept a low profile.
