Narron said he thinks Gonzalez's overall numbers are skewed by the fact he often hit eighth for the Florida Marlins.
"I think Alex - when he's selective - has a chance to really hit," Narron said. "I don't know throughout his career what the percentage is when he's hit eighth in the lineup, but that's a not an easy place to hit in the (NL). Get him a little protection and see what happens.
"So far it's paid off."
