Angel Manuel "Andy" González (born December 15, 1981 in Río Piedras, Puerto Rico) is a Major League Baseball utility player for the Florida Marlins organization.

González was drafted by the Chicago White Sox in the 5th round of the 2001 Major League Baseball Draft and was a Gulf Coast League All-star shortstop in 2001, with a .323 batting average. He steadily advanced through Chicago's minor league system and made his major league debut on April 25, 2007. In 189 at-bats in the majors in 2007, González batted only .185. After the season, the White Sox did not tender González a contract making him a free agent.

On December 21, 2007, he signed a minor league contract with the Cleveland Indians with an invitation to spring training. After not making the team out of spring training, González began the year with Triple-A Buffalo. He was called up to the majors on July 26, 2008, to fill the roster following the trade of Casey Blake. He was designated for assignment on August 29 and became a free agent at the end of the season.
