Eusebio Miguel López González [Papo] (July 13, 1892 – February 14, 1976) was an infielder who played briefly in Major League Baseball during the 1918 season. Listed at 5' 10", 165 lb., González batted and threw right-handed. He was born in Havana, Cuba.

González has the distinction of being the first Cuban player to play for the Boston Red Sox, and the 11th Cuban major leaguer overall. He appeared in three games with the 1918 American League champions Red Sox but did not played in the World Series. He went 2-for-5, including two runs and a triple, while playing at shortstop (2 games) and second base (1 game).
