Rockies | Carlos Gonzalez resting Monday

Mon, 01 Jun 2015 14:13:42 -0700

Colorado Rockies OF Carlos Gonzalez is not in the starting lineup against a left-handed pitcher Monday, June 1. OF Brandon Barnes is starting in right field and hitting seventh in the batting order against Los Angeles Dodgers SP Clayton Kershaw.

Fantasy Tip: Barnes ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) has been impressive in his short time in the majors this year, hitting .344 (11-for-32), but he should be avoided while facing last year's Cy Young winner in the National League.

Rockies | Carlos Gonzalez returned

Tue, 26 May 2015 19:29:15 -0700

Colorado Rockies OF Carlos Gonzalez (illness) returned to right field Tuesday, May 26, after sitting out Monday with a stomach illness. Gonzalez went 0-for-3 with a walk.

Fantasy Tip: Gonzalez ($4,300, 8.6% of cap) should be avoided like the plague on FantasyScore until he strings some solid games together. There's not much reason to expect a quick turnaround to his disastrous season.

Rockies | Carlos Gonzalez scratched

Mon, 25 May 2015 09:12:17 -0700

Colorado Rockies OF Carlos Gonzalez (illness) has been scratched from the starting lineup Monday, May 25, because of an illness. OF Brandon Barnes will move to right field, and OF Charlie Blackmon will start in center field.

Fantasy Tip: Owners should look for an update on Gonzalez ($4,300, 8.6% of cap) after the game to see if he will miss multiple games. Blackmon ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) was scheduled to sit out the game but will take Gonzalez's spot in the lineup and could be a solid starting option.

Rockies | Carlos Gonzalez not starting Sunday

Sun, 24 May 2015 12:50:37 -0700

Colorado Rockies OF Carlos Gonzalez is not in the starting lineup against the San Francisco Giants Sunday, May 24. OF Brandon Barnes will start in right field and bat sixth.

Fantasy Tip: Gonzalez ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) is receiving the day off. Barnes ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) is 7-for-10 since being called up a few days ago and is worthy of consideration as a low-cost flier in FantasyScore.

Rockies | Carlos Gonzalez hitting in two-hole

Thu, 14 May 2015 16:13:00 -0700

Colorado Rockies OF Carlos Gonzalez is hitting second in the batting order against Los Angeles Dodgers SP Brett Anderson Thursday, May 14.

Fantasy Tip: The Rockies are trying everything to try and jump start Gonzalez ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) out of his offensive funk. Now is not the time to try and get great value out of his slumping bat while facing a lefty in a rain-soaked pitcher's park, though. Car-Go is hitting just .125 (3-for-24) with no home runs and no RBI against lefties in 2015.

Rockies | Carlos Gonzalez hitting cleanup Wednesday

Wed, 13 May 2015 16:19:45 -0700

Colorado Rockies OF Carlos Gonzalez is hitting cleanup against Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Hector Santiago Wednesday, May 13.

Fantasy Tip: Gonzalez ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) is hitting a disappointing .188 (18-for-96) with just two home runs and six RBI this season. He's struggling even more against lefties (.100-0-0). The cheap price could eventually be hard to pass up if he can get things going. Until then, though, avoid him at FantasyScore, especially against a left-handed starter.

Rockies | Carlos Gonzalez, Corey Dickerson flopped in lineup

Tue, 12 May 2015 15:41:26 -0700

Colorado Rockies OF Carlos Gonzalez is hitting third in the batting order Tuesday, May 12, while OF Corey Dickerson has been dropped to seventh in the order against Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP C.J. Wilson.

Fantasy Tip: This is likely a move made by the skipper in order to get Gonzalez's ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) bat going. He's hitting just .196 (18-for-92) with two home runs and six RBI and is fully healthy (as far as we know). Even more concerning is that he's 2-for-16 (.125) against southpaws, and his skills seem to be eroding. It's hard to justify playing him at FantasyScore tonight against another lefty, but he could work out as a contrarian value play if the lineup switch sparks him.

Rockies | Carlos Gonzalez out against lefty

Sat, 09 May 2015 14:48:41 -0700

Colorado Rockies OF Carlos Gonzalez is out of the lineup Saturday, May 9, against Los Angeles Dodgers SP Clayton Kershaw.

Fantasy Tip: Drew Stubbs ($2,700, 5.4% of your cap) is 3-for-26 (.115) lifetime against Kershaw, and he's a big pass on FantasyScore.

Rockies | Carlos Gonzalez on bench

Thu, 23 Apr 2015 10:25:29 -0700

Colorado Rockies OF Carlos Gonzalez is not in the starting lineup Thursday, April 23. OF Drew Stubbs is starting in center field and hitting seventh in the batting order against San Diego Padres SP Tyson Ross.

Fantasy Tip: Gonzalez ($4,400, 8.8% of cap) is in a bad slump to start 2015, going 10-for-56 (.179) with one home run and five RBI. Until he gets back on track, you'll probably want to bench him in standard leagues, and avoid him at FantasyScore. Stubbs ($2,500, 5.0% of cap) doesn't come recommended for daily gamers, as he's much better against left-handed pitchers.

Rockies | Carlos Gonzalez dropped in order

Wed, 22 Apr 2015 14:27:10 -0700

Colorado Rockies OF Carlos Gonzalez is being dropped to sixth in the batting order against San Diego Padres SP James Shields Wednesday, April 22.

Fantasy Tip: Gonzalez ($4,400, 8.8% of cap) has just 10 hits in 53 at-bats (.189) to start the season, although he does have a home run and five RBI. Despite his struggles, it's hard to argue selecting him at FantasyScore for the price, and he does have two home runs in nine career at-bats against Shields. Car-Go will be an under-the-radar pick in daily games tonight.
