Victor Raúl González (born December 27, 1973 in Santurce, Puerto Rico) is a free agent Major League Baseball outfielder. He bats and throws right-handed.

Drafted by the Kansas City Royals in the 17th round of the 1990 Major League Baseball Draft, González made his major league debut for the Chicago Cubs on May 25, 2000. In 2007, he played for the New York Mets' Triple-A affiliate, the New Orleans Zephyrs where he batted .279 in 17 games before being released. He then signed with the independent Newark Bears of the Atlantic League. He hit .313 with Newark with 8 home runs and 35 RBI.

Following the arrest of Major League Baseball player, Miguel Cabrera, on February 15, 2010,[1] González was chosen as Cabrera's "companion" in order to help the slugger abstain from alcohol and other such activities detrimental to his baseball career. González was reported by Fox Sports to be going to be with Cabrera "all year long" to ensure he stays on track.[2]
