Houston Astros SS Jed Lowrie is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, April 21. SS Marwin Gonzalez is starting at shortstop and hitting fifth in the batting order against Seattle Mariners SP Taijuan Walker.
Fantasy Tip: Gonzalez ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) isn't an attractive FantasyScore consideration at the 6 tonight, even going against the struggling Walker. The Astros are playing at pitcher-friendly Safeco Field tonight, too.

Houston Astros 1B Chris Carter is not in the starting lineup Monday, April 20. SS Marwin Gonzalez is starting at first base and hitting seventh in the batting order against Seattle Mariners SP Hisashi Iwakuma.
Fantasy Tip: Carter ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) is likely receiving a breather after recording just three hits in his first 40 at-bats (.075) of the season. Gonzalez ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) already has one homer this year, but even against struggling Iwakuma, he's on the low-end of the shortstop spectrum for FantasyScore players, especially in a pitcher's park tonight.

Houston Astros DH Chris Carter and SS Marwin Gonzalez will be used at first base early in the season, according to manager A.J. Hinch. Hinch said the team has no primary first baseman or designated hitter.
Fantasy Tip: Carter is likely to receive frequent starts at first base, and he'll become eligible at the position in traditional leagues fairly early. This will enhance his value in leagues where he is only eligible at the utility spot. Gonzalez has little fantasy appeal.
