Astros | Chris Carter resting Thursday

Thu, 25 Jun 2015 16:10:45 -0700

Houston Astros 1B Chris Carter is not in the starting lineup Thursday, June 25. SS Marwin Gonzalez is starting at first and hitting eighth against New York Yankees SP Adam Warren.

Fantasy Tip: Gonzalez ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) is a light-hitting utility infielder for the 'Stros and should be low on your list of FantasyScore shortstops to use this evening. Gonzalez is hitting only .229 (24-for-105) with two home runs and 11 RBI against right-handers this year.

Astros | Jose Altuve remains out

Sat, 20 Jun 2015 15:14:14 -0700

Houston Astros 2B Jose Altuve (hamstring) remains out of the starting lineup Saturday, June 20, against the Seattle Mariners. SS Marwin Gonzalez will start at second base and hit eighth in the order against RHP Taijuan Walker.

Fantasy Tip: Gonzalez ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) went 2-for-3 with a double and a home run Friday, as he extended his hit streak to five games. Gonzalez can be used as a low-risk flier in GPP tournaments.

Astros | Jose Altuve not starting

Fri, 19 Jun 2015 16:17:28 -0700

Houston Astros 2B Jose Altuve (hamstring) is not in the starting lineup against Seattle Mariners SP Roenis Elias Friday, June 19. SS Marwin Gonzalez will start at second base and is batting ninth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Altuve ($5,400, 10.8% of cap) should be considered day-to-day at this point, so owners should look for any updates on his status. Gonzalez ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) has recorded one hits in each of his last four games but is hitting only .146 this month, so owners should be able to find a better option.

Thu, 18 Jun 2015 09:12:14 -0700

Houston Astros 2B Jose Altuve (hamstring) is out of the lineup Thursday, June 18, in favor of 2B Marwin Gonzalez.

Fantasy Tip: Gonzalez ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) faces David Hale in Colorado, but he doesn't have enough upside offensively to use on FantasyScore.

Houston Astros 2B Jose Altuve was replaced in the field Wednesday, June 17, against the Colorado Rockies. SS Marwin Gonzalez replaced Altuve who left the game due to a suspected hamstring injury.

Fantasy Tip: Gonzalez ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) can be avoided on FantasyScore while season-long owners hold their breath awaiting more updates on Altuve.

Astros | Jose Altuve still out

Mon, 15 Jun 2015 13:58:18 -0700

Houston Astros 2B Jose Altuve (hamstring) is not in the starting line Monday, June 15. SS Marwin Gonzalez is starting at the keystone and batting eighth against Colorado Rockies SP Chad Bettis Monday.

Fantasy Tip: Check back for updates on Altuve ($5,700, 11.4% of cap), who will miss his third consecutive game Monday. Gonzalez ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) is nothing more than a desperation source of cap relief for FantasyScore contests Monday, as he is hitting just .213 with a .576 OPS this season.

Astros | Jose Altuve to miss another game

Sun, 14 Jun 2015 10:42:28 -0700

Houston Astros 2B Jose Altuve (hamstring) is not in the starting lineup against Seattle Mariners SP Roenis Elias Sunday, June 14. SS Marwin Gonzalez will start at second base and is batting ninth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Owners should continue to monitor the situation to see when Altuve ($5,700, 11.4% of cap) can return. Gonzalez ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) has only three hits over his last 11 games and is not a great option on FantasyScore.

Astros | Marwin Gonzalez playing second

Sat, 13 Jun 2015 11:35:14 -0700

Houston Astros INF Marwin Gonzalez will start at second base and bat eighth against the Seattle Mariners Saturday, June 13. 2B Jose Altuve (hamstring) is listed as day-to-day because of an injured right hamstring.

Fantasy Tip: Gonzalez ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) is only batting .219 with two homers and 13 RBIs this year. He is not a great FantasyScore option, even though he is projected to see most of the playing time at the keystone position while Altuve is out.

Astros | Luis Valbuena sitting vs. White Sox

Wed, 10 Jun 2015 15:04:27 -0700

Houston Astros 3B Luis Valbuena is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, June 10. SS Marwin Gonzalez is starting at third base and batting eighth against Chicago White Sox SP Jose Quintana Wednesday.

Fantasy Tip: Valbuena ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) has solid counting stats with 30 runs, 12 home runs and 21 RBI, but his .180/.249/.390 slash line is a category anchor. Of late, he is just 5-for-53 over his last 15 games. Gonzalez's ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) .572 OPS is even lower than Valbuena's mark (.639), and Gonzalez doesn't offer the counting stat upside. Avoid both in FantasyScore contests Wednesday.
