Colorado Rockies OF Carlos Gonzalez is not part of active trade discussions Monday, Aug. 1, and a source said that Gonzalez will remain with the Rockies.
Fantasy Tip: CarGo's home/road splits are pretty drastic, and a departure from Coors Field was bound to hurt him. He has a .317-21-68 line on the season and remains an OF1 in fantasy.

Colorado Rockies OF Carlos Gonzalez said he would be open to moving to first base, but he believes he can help the team playing outfield. Manager Walt Weiss said there has been some discussion about Gonzalez playing first base, but those talks were very preliminary.
Fantasy Tip: The best thing for Car-Go's fantasy value would be to remain with the Rockies, and this bit makes that scenario sound possible. He has a .359-15-45 line at home and a .277-5-17 line on the road in similar at-bats. If he stays in Denver, he remains a low-end OF1, but he'd lose some luster if he's dealt.

Colorado Rockies OF Carlos Gonzalez and SS Trevor Story each drove in two runs Tuesday, July 26, in a 6-3 win over the Baltimore Orioles.
Fantasy Tip: Is this an audition for Gonzalez to possibly move elsewhere at the trading deadline? Gonzalez is at .317-20-62 and is definitely worth starting in all formats. The same goes with Story, who should be National League Rookie of the Year running away.

Colorado Rockies OF Carlos Gonzalez is not in the starting lineup against Tampa Bay Rays left-handed SP Blake Snell Tuesday, July 19. OF Brandon Barnes is starting in right field and batting eighth.
Fantasy Tip: Car-Go is taking a breather in the lefty-lefty matchup. Barnes is a career .244 hitter in five seasons and doesn't have much offensive upside aside from some speed. He's a deep sleeper that isn't very attractive in daily formats, especially hitting near the bottom of the order.
