In 2005, Esteban Gonzalez played third base for the Greeneville Astros. He played in 26 games and hit .183 as Koby Clemens back up that year. His paying career was over but not his career in baseball. In 2010, he became the manager of the Venezuela Summer League affiliate of the Tampa Bay Rays organization. In two seasons, he has compiled a 66-56 record as a manager.
In 2010, Voice of America did a story on the Rays VSL team and Gonzalez is interviewed in the piece.
