Adrian Gonzalez told the San Diego Union-Tribune in September that an injury to his right shoulder in May impacted his ability to hit for power this season. Now he’s trying to figure out why.

According to Dan Hayes of the North County Times, Gonzalez underwent two MRI exams on his right shoulder this week. His agent John Boggs told Hayes that Gonzalez will be ready for the start of next season, whether he chooses to undergo rehab the shoulder or have arthroscopic surgery on his labrum.

“It’s not debilitating — it’s aggravating,” Boggs said. “It’s nothing of urgency. They’re evaluating it right now, and ultimately it will be Adrian’s decision.”

Padres general manager Jed Hoyer confirmed in a text message to Hayes that the Padres are now “assessing the next step.”

Gonzalez, 28, batted .298/.393/.511 with 31 homers and 101 RBI this season. The team plans to pick up his $5.5 million option for next season, after which he will almost certainly become a free agent.

    It sounds like he’d be a prime candidate for the Red Sox roster now that he has some injuries . I’m sure Theo will go after him in earnest if has a preexisting injury .
