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.

Wed, 22 Jul 2015 09:58:38 -0700

Colorado Rockies OF Carlos Gonzalez is hitting second Wednesday, July 22, against Texas Rangers left-handed SP Martin Perez.

Rockies | Carlos Gonzalez will not start

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

Colorado Rockies OF Carlos Gonzalez is not in the starting lineup against Texas Rangers SP Matt Harrison Tuesday, July 21. OF Drew Stubbs will start in left field and is batting sixth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Gonzalez ($4,800, 9.6% of cap) has struggled against left-handed pitchers, so he is receiving a day off. Stubbs ($2,900, 5.8% of cap) is hitting .278 this month with three home runs and four RBI, but owners on FantasyScore may want to look for more consistent options.

Sat, 18 Jul 2015 13:28:44 -0700

Rockies | Carlos Gonzalez carries the load

Sat, 11 Jul 2015 19:36:30 -0700

Colorado Rockies OF Carlos Gonzalez hit a game-winning, one-run single and went 2-for-4 with a home run, three RBI and a run scored in a 3-2 win over the Atlanta Braves Saturday, July 11.

Fantasy Tip: Gonzalez ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) has four multi-hit games over his last six, raising his average from .237 to .258. He also three homers, four doubles, seven RBI and six runs scored over the same stretch, and he makes a great mid-priced option at FantasyScore right now.

Rockies | Carlos Gonzalez has three doubles

Fri, 10 Jul 2015 00:43:12 -0700

Colorado Rockies OF Carlos Gonzalez doubled three times Thursday, July 9, as the Rockies prevailed 5-3 over the Atlanta Braves.

Fantasy Tip: Gonzalez ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) is hitting .247-11-30 heading into the final few games before the All-Star break, about 10 points higher than last season. He won't help your batting average, but his extra-base power makes Gonzalez a decent start in FantasyScore formats.

Rockies | Carlos Gonzalez returns to action

Sun, 05 Jul 2015 11:51:19 -0700

Colorado Rockies OF Carlos Gonzalez is back in the starting lineup against Arizona Diamondbacks SP Rubby De La Rosa Sunday, July 5, batting cleanup and playing right field. OF Brandon Barnes, who played right field Saturday, July 4, is playing left field and batting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Gonzalez ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) and Barnes ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) have each had success against De La Rosa, albeit with small sample sizes. Gonzalez is 2-for-4 in his career against the righty, while Barnes is 1-for-3. On the other hand, both hitters have combined to go 6-for-44 (.136) over the past week, so it's not a lock that they'll be productive in FantasyScore today.

Rockies | Carlos Gonzalez sitting out

Sat, 04 Jul 2015 15:04:32 -0700

Colorado Rockies OF Carlos Gonzalez is out of the lineup Saturday, July 4, against a left-handed starter. OF Brandon Barnes is hitting eighth in his place.

Fantasy Tip: Barnes ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) is in a 2-for-17 slump (.118) the last seven days and isn't a good option on FantasyScore.

Rockies | Carlos Gonzalez has five hits

Sat, 27 Jun 2015 04:25:16 -0700

Colorado Rockies OF Carlos Gonzalez had a career-best five hits Friday, June 26, as the Rockies scored an 8-6 win over the San Francisco Giants.

Fantasy Tip: Gonzalez ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) has had a decent season so far, nearly matching his 70 games played last year. His average is up by 15 points, and he has 10 home runs. These numbers add up to a good reason to play him on a regular basis, when he is healthy. He just returned to the lineup on Friday and appears to have shaken off the effects of a hand injury.

Rockies | Carlos Gonzalez returns to lineup

Fri, 26 Jun 2015 17:05:11 -0700

Confirming a previous report, Colorado Rockies OF Carlos Gonzalez (hand) is back in the starting lineup against the San Francisco Giants Friday, June 26, batting cleanup against SP Tim Hudson.

Fantasy Tip: Gonzalez ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) is back in the lineup for the first time since Sunday, June 21. His low price tag makes him tempting for FantasyScore owners to use but he is only 4-for-21 (.190) against Hudson in his career, with one home run and two RBIs.
