Astros | Marwin Gonzalez starting at first

Sun, 02 Aug 2015 09:52:39 -0700

Houston Astros SS Marwin Gonzalez will start at first base and hit sixth in the order Sunday, Aug. 2, against the Arizona Diamondbacks and LHP Robbie Ray. 3B Luis Valbuena comes out of the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Gonzalez ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) doesn't have the conventional upside of a first baseman, but he'll offer some cap relief to FantasyScore owners looking to invest at other positions.

Astros | Chris Carter out Friday

Fri, 31 Jul 2015 16:29:27 -0700

Houston Astros 1B Chris Carter is not in the starting lineup Friday, July 31. SS Marwin Gonzalez is starting at first base and is hitting eighth against Arizona Diamondbacks SP Rubby De La Rosa.

Fantasy Tip: Carter ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) could find himself out of the lineup more often than not now that Jed Lowrie is back in the infield picture for Houston. Carter has impressive power, but his .184 average (56-for-305) kills his fantasy owners, and if he's not seeing as much playing time, he's even less attractive to fantasy owners. Gonzalez ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) is a very mediocre, at best, shortstop play on FantasyScore.

Astros | Marwin Gonzalez in two-hole

Tue, 28 Jul 2015 17:02:51 -0700

Houston Astros SS Marwin Gonzalez is starting at first base and hitting second against Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP C.J. Wilson Tuesday, July 28. 1B Chris Carter is serving as the designated hitter and batting sixth.

Fantasy Tip: Gonzalez ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) receives a slight daily boost with the move up the batting order, and he could be an attractive sleeper with his .304 (24-for-79) average against lefties this year. Three of his seven homers have come off lefties in 2015.

Astros | Marwin Gonzalez starting at first base

Sun, 26 Jul 2015 09:12:01 -0700

Houston Astros SS Marwin Gonzalez is starting at first base and batting seventh against Kansas City Royals SP Yordano Ventura Sunday, July 26. 1Bs Chris Carter and Jon Singleton are not in the starting lineup Sunday.

Fantasy Tip: Gonzalez ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) stands as a sneaky source of cap relief at FantasyScore Sunday. While his production is modest (.267/.300/.438 with 27 runs, seven home runs and 22 RBI over 222 plate appearances), Ventura ($5,100, 10.2% of cap) has struggled (6.21 ERA over his past six starts), so the Astros have a chance to score plenty Sunday.

Astros | Marwin Gonzalez hitting second

Sat, 25 Jul 2015 14:08:58 -0700

Houston Astros 3B Marwin Gonzalez is hitting second Saturday, July 25, against left-handed Kansas City Royals SP Danny Duffy.

Fantasy Tip: On the surface, Gonzalez ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) doesn't have the name power to make fantasy owners excited. However, he has a .359-3-5 line in July and hits lefties to a tune of .303. He's one of the bargain bin gems today on FantasyScore.

Astros | Marwin Gonzalez batting second

Thu, 23 Jul 2015 13:38:05 -0700

Houston Astros SS Marwin Gonzalez is starting at third base and batting second against Boston Red Sox SP Wade Miley Thursday, July 23. 3B Luis Valbuena is not in the starting lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Gonzalez ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) boasts a respectable .297/.342/.446 slash line against lefties this season, so with his lineup position, he stands as a potential low-priced option for FantasyScore contests Thursday. Keep your expectations in check, though.

Astros | Chris Carter not in Tuesday lineup

Tue, 21 Jul 2015 14:30:05 -0700

Houston Astros 1B Chris Carter (ankle) is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, July 21, against the Boston Red Sox. SS Marwin Gonzalez is in the lineup at first base and batting second.

Fantasy Tip: Carter ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) is hoping to avoid the disabled list, but the more he misses games like this the more likely he may have to go on it. Keep Carter seated until he gets over his ankle issues.

Astros | No Luis Valbuena Friday

Fri, 17 Jul 2015 14:56:35 -0700

Houston Astros 3B Luis Valbuena is not in the starting lineup Friday, July 17. SS Marwin Gonzalez is starting at the hot corner and hitting second against Texas Rangers SP Martin Perez.

Fantasy Tip: Gonzalez ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) typically isn't very attractive to FantasyScore users, but tonight could be an exception as a sleeper pick that'll give you valuable cap relief. Perez is making his first start of the season for the Rangers, and Gonzalez is hitting much better against southpaws (.279) this season.

Astros | Luis Valbuena out of the lineup

Sun, 12 Jul 2015 08:43:40 -0700

Houston Astros 3B Luis Valbuena is not in the starting lineup Sunday, July 12. SS Marwin Gonzalez is playing third base and batting second against Tampa Bay Rays SP Matt Moore Sunday.

Fantasy Tip: Gonzalez ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) is an upside source of cap relief hitting between Houston's top two hitters. He is worth a dice roll at FantasyScore, although far from a sure thing. Make sure to avoid Valbuena in all fantasy formats Sunday.

Astros | Luis Valbuena remains sidelined

Wed, 08 Jul 2015 14:38:42 -0700

Houston Astros 3B Luis Valbuena (toe) remains out of the lineup Wednesday, July 8. SS Marwin Gonzalez is starting at third base again and is hitting seventh against Cleveland Indians SP Trevor Bauer.

Fantasy Tip: Gonzalez ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) has a limited ceiling offensively and isn't very attractive near the bottom of the batting order for Houston. He remains a low-end shortstop play on FantasyScore that will give you salary cap relief, if needed.
