Wiklenman Vicente "Wiki" González (born May 17, 1974 in Aragua, Venezuela) is a former Major League Baseball player. González's MLB career was with the San Diego Padres (1999–2003), the Seattle Mariners (2005), and the Washington Nationals (2006).

González bats and throws right-handed. In his six-season MLB career, González had a .238 batting average with 17 home runs and 101 RBIs in 283 games. A slow runner, González holds the dubious distinction of having hit into a 5-4-3 triple play, while playing for the Padres in a May 17, 2002, game against the New York Mets, on his birthday.[1]

On March 31, 2008, González signed with the St. George Roadrunners of the independent Golden Baseball League. On February 2, 2009, he was traded to the Sussex Skyhawks of the Can-Am League. He was released on April 2, 2009.
