Pedro González Olivares (December 12, 1937 – January 10, 2021), nicknamed "Speedy Gonzalez", was a Dominican professional baseball second baseman, who played in Major League Baseball (MLB) for the New York Yankees (1963–65) and Cleveland Indians (1965-67). He was one of the first 15 Dominicans to play big league baseball.

In 407 career MLB games, González had 264 hits with a batting average of .244, 8 home runs, and 70 runs batted in (RBI). He finished his major league career with an overall .980 fielding percentage.

The Indians acquired González on May 10, 1965 in exchange for first baseman Ray Barker.

González died on January 10, 2021.
