News: GM Ruben Amaro Jr. said Gonzalez's salary does not guarantee him a spot on the Phillies' roster, the Philadelphia Daily News reports.
Impact: Gonzalez is due to make $3.67 million this season, which is the fifth highest of any pitcher on the Phillies' roster. He will compete for a rotation spot this spring, but could still earn a bullpen spot if he fails to win a starting job.

News: Manager Ryne Sandberg confirmed that Gonzalez will get a chance to earn a rotation spot this spring, the Phillies' official site reports.
Impact: The Phillies had previously said after last season that Gonzalez was going to get an opportunity to compete as a starter. He missed a lot of time last season with shoulder problems and was then moved to the bullpen, which seemed to help him get over the hump with his arm troubles. He is competing with David Buchanan and Chad Billingsley for the final spot in the Phillies' rotation.
