Astros | Carlos Correa remains out of the lineup

Sun, 30 Aug 2015 08:41:12 -0700

Updating a previous report, Houston Astros SS Carlos Correa (hamstring) is not in the starting lineup Sunday, Aug. 30. SS Marwin Gonzalez is starting at shortstop and batting second against Minnesota Twins SP Ervin Santana Sunday.

Fantasy Tip: Continue to remain patient with Correa ($5,200, 10.4% of cap) in seasonal leagues, and avoid him at FantasyScore until he returns, which is expected to be sooner than later. Gonzalez ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) stands as a viable value play in daily contests Sunday. He is batting .300 over 34 games since the All-Star break.

Astros | Carlos Correa not in the lineup

Sat, 29 Aug 2015 14:29:48 -0700

Houston Astros SS Carlos Correa (hamstring) is not in the starting lineup against Minnesota Twins SP Mike Pelfrey Saturday, Aug. 29. SS Marwin Gonzalez will start at shortstop and is batting second, while OF Jake Marisnick is starting in left field and is batting ninth.

Fantasy Tip: Owners should monitor Correa's ($5,200, 10.4% of cap) status to see when he may be able to return to the lineup. Gonzalez ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) and Marisnick ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) could be cheaper options for owners on FantasyScore.

Astros | Carlos Correa nursing hammy soreness

Fri, 28 Aug 2015 14:28:32 -0700

Houston Astros SS Carlos Correa (hamstring) is dealing with soreness in his left hamstring and is not in the starting lineup Friday, Aug. 28. SS Marwin Gonzalez is starting at shortstop and batting seventh against Minnesota Twins SP Tyler Gibson Friday.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to avoid Correa ($5,200, 10.4% of cap) in all fantasy formats Friday. It doesn't appear to be a serious injury, so there is potential for Correa to rejoin the starting lineup Saturday, Aug. 29. Gonzalez ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) is a sneaky value play at FantasyScore Friday, as he is 11-for-38 with four extra-base hits and a .834 OPS over his past 12 games. Still, Gonzalez is a long way from a lineup lock.

Astros | Colby Rasmus sitting out

Sun, 23 Aug 2015 10:27:51 -0700

Houston Astros OF Colby Rasmus is not in the starting lineup against Los Angeles Dodgers SP Clayton Kershaw Sunday, Aug. 23. SS Marwin Gonzalez will start in left field and is batting sixth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Rasmus ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) likely is sitting out because the team is facing a left-handed pitcher. Gonzalez ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) has gone hitless in each of his last four games and is not the best option for owners on FantasyScore.

Astros | Jed Lowrie receiving a breather

Thu, 20 Aug 2015 15:03:19 -0700

Houston Astros 3B Jed Lowrie is not in the starting lineup Thursday, Aug. 20. 3B Luis Valbuena moves over to third base, while SS Marwin Gonzalez is starting at first base and hitting second against Tampa Bay Rays SP Chris Archer.

Fantasy Tip: Gonzalez ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) rarely fills out the stat sheet when he starts, and he's facing the second-ranked strikeout pitcher in the American League in Archer. Even in the two-hole, Gonzalez is a low-end shortstop play on FantasyScore.

Astros | Preston Tucker out Tuesday

Tue, 18 Aug 2015 15:23:55 -0700

Houston Astros OF Preston Tucker is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, Aug. 18. SS Marwin Gonzalez is starting in left field and hitting second against Tampa Bay Rays SP Jake Odorizzi.

Fantasy Tip: Gonzalez ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) doesn't do a whole lot at the plate or on the bases to excite daily gamers, but hitting in the two-hole should make him a bit more attractive as a deep sleeper on FantasyScore.

Astros | Jed Lowrie not in the lineup

Sun, 16 Aug 2015 10:26:17 -0700

Houston Astros SS Jed Lowrie is not in the starting lineup against Detroit Tigers SP Matt Boyd Sunday, Aug. 16. 2B Marwin Gonzalez will start at third base and is batting second in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Lowrie ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) likely is receiving a day off and should return to the lineup soon. Gonzalez ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) is hitting only .167 this month and is not a great option for owners on FantasyScore.

Astros | Marwin Gonzalez at 1B Friday

Fri, 14 Aug 2015 16:01:28 -0700

Houston Astros SS Marwin Gonzalez is starting at first base and hitting eighth against Detroit Tigers SP Alfredo Simon Friday, Aug. 14.

Fantasy Tip: The switch-hitting shortstop hasn't done much hitting left-handed against righties this year with a triple slash line of .245/.270/.388 and four home runs and 15 RBI. Hitting near the bottom of the order limits his daily value, too. There's nothing exciting about Gonzalez.

Astros | Chris Carter sitting again

Tue, 04 Aug 2015 16:09:17 -0700

Houston Astros 1B Chris Carter is out of the starting lineup for the second straight day Tuesday, Aug. 4. SS Marwin Gonzalez is starting at first base and hitting eighth against Texas Rangers SP Yovani Gallardo.

Fantasy Tip: Carter has been the odd-man out of the lineup since Carlos Gomez arrived in town. He still has plenty of power, but with less consistent at-bats, it's even tougher to count on him in your mixed league lineups. Gonzalez ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) is facing a pitcher struggling mightily of late, but his lack of offensive upside makes him nothing more than a deep sleeper pick on FantasyScore.

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.
