Gonzalez to miss 2 games for daughter's graduation

Posted: Updated:

Fredi Gonzalez is leaving Atlanta's road trip for a whirlwind solo cross-country trip back to Georgia.

After managing Thursday night's series opener at San Francisco, Gonzalez is set to depart from the Bay Area at 6 a.m. local time Friday so he arrives in Statesboro, Ga., in time to attend his daughter's graduation from Georgia Southern first thing Saturday morning.

Bench coach Carlos Tosca, a former Toronto Blue Jays skipper, will manage in Gonzalez's place for two games -- and even again Sunday if the first two are wins, Gonzalez joked. He is scheduled to return late Saturday.

Gabrielle "Gigi" Gonzalez is set to earn a bachelor's degree in marketing and public relations, and has an internship set to begin in Atlanta. She is the oldest of Gonzalez's two children.
