Rockies | Colorado to revisit dealing Carlos Gonzalez

Fri, 31 Jul 2015 11:13:15 -0700

Colorado Rockies OF Carlos Gonzalez will not be traded before the trade deadline Friday, July 31. The organization is telling teams they will revisit moving Gonzalez in August or during the offseason.

Fantasy Tip: Gonzalez ($5,100, 10.2% of cap) is on an absolute tear right now, and remaining with the Rockies ensures he'll play his home games at hitter-friendly Coors Field. Over his past 189 plate appearances through 47 games, Gonzalez has 32 runs, 11 doubles, 17 home runs, 39 RBI and a .337/.376/.703 slash line. He is worth a look nightly at FantasyScore, but especially when he has a home game or faces a favorable opposing hurler.

Orioles | Baltimore in on Carlos Gonzalez

Thu, 30 Jul 2015 15:41:37 -0700

Colorado Rockies OF Carlos Gonzalez has been mentioned in trade talks between the Rockies and the Baltimore Orioles, per sources Thursday, July 30. San Diego Padres OF Justin Upton and Detroit Tigers OF Yoenis Cespedes are considered the more likely options for Baltimore.

Fantasy Tip: Gonzalez ($5,100, 10.2% of cap) has been on a tear of late, hitting eight home runs since July 22. A move from Coors field would be a negative for his fantasy value, but he would benefit from being a part of the better Orioles' lineup.

Mets | NY wants to add another bat

Wed, 29 Jul 2015 12:17:58 -0700

The New York Mets want to add another big bat at the trading deadline, and they have their sights set on San Diego Padres OF Justin Upton, Colorado Rockies OF Carlos Gonzalez, Milwaukee Brewers OFs Carlos Gomez and Gerardo Parra and Cincinnati Reds OF Jay Bruce. The Padres and Mets didn't agree on a prospect package for Upton, but the talks could be rekindled. Gonzalez's price tag would be high, as he is heating up this summer. The Reds are showing interest in SP Zack Wheeler in exchange for Bruce. Reds OF Marlon Byrd could be a fallback option for the Mets.

Fantasy Tip: The Mets surely could use a boost on the offensive side, and any of these bats would do just fine. A move to New York for any of these names is unlikely to drastically affect their fantasy value, although some of those names would be leaving fine hitting environments.

Rockies | Odds of a Carlos Gonzalez trade

Wed, 29 Jul 2015 11:13:27 -0700

Colorado Rockies OF Carlos Gonzalez has a "30-70" chance of being traded at the deadline, according to a source. The Rockies are looking for a better deal for him.

Fantasy Tip: It seems unlikely that the Rockies will deal Car-Go ($5,100, 10.2% of cap) after just trading away Troy Tulowitzki, but it's not out of the realm of possibilities. Gonzalez has picked it up, hitting .385 (30-for-78) with 10 home runs and 23 RBI in the month of July. A trade out of Coors Field would be a setback for his fantasy value, but if he keeps swinging the way he has been, no change of venue can slow him down.

Tue, 28 Jul 2015 13:01:00 -0700

The New York Mets aren't likely to pursue Colorado Rockies OF Carlos Gonzalez, according to sources.

Fantasy Tip: Gonzalez ($5,100, 10.2% of cap) may have too big a contract for the Mets to handle, but Gonzalez's fantasy value depends on where he eventually lands.

Angels | Halos not going after Carlos Gonzalez

Tue, 28 Jul 2015 10:59:04 -0700

Colorado Rockies OF Carlos Gonzalez hasn't been a "point of emphasis" for the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim as the trade deadline nears, according to a source. The Angels are trying to get "incrementally" better in left field.

Fantasy Tip: The Rockies are now trying to trade Gonzalez ($5,100, 10.% of cap) after trading away Troy Tulowitzki last night. Car-Go has been on fire at the plate, finally appeasing his fantasy owners. A trade out of Colorado would be a hit to his fantasy value, but if he continues to swing the bat like he has been, his new digs won't really matter much.

Rockies | Carlos Gonzalez expected to be dealt

Tue, 28 Jul 2015 07:15:04 -0700

Colorado Rockies OF Carlos Gonzalez is expected to be traded, according to a rival general manager. Gonzalez is owed $43 million through 2017 and will receive a $1 million bonus if he is traded.

Fantasy Tip: CarGo ($5,100, 10.2% of cap) has been on fire, but his fantasy value will take a small hit if he moves away from Coors Field. He's a solid midrange option on FantasyScore.

Rockies | A pair of homers for Carlos Gonzalez

Sat, 25 Jul 2015 06:00:55 -0700

Colorado Rockies OF Carlos Gonzalez went 2-for-4 with two solo home runs during the Rockies' 6-5 win over the Cincinnati Reds Friday, July 24.

Fantasy Tip: After a lackluster start to the season, Gonzalez ($4,800, 9.6% of cap) has turned things around over his past 41 games. He has a .311/.342/.636 slash line with 22 runs, 12 home runs and 28 RBI. Six of the home runs and 13 of the RBI have come over the past 12 games, though, as Gonzalez is currently in his best form. FantasyScore players should consider him whenever he plays at Coors Field and in favorable road matchups.

Rockies | Carlos Gonzalez will not start

Tue, 21 Jul 2015 14:46:50 -0700
