Washington Nationals SP Gio Gonzalez has lost five straight starts to the New York Yankees and has an 8.17 ERA against them. He is also 1-3 with a 9.08 ERA in his last eight starts against the American League. However, he is 3-0 with a 1.42 ERA in his last six starts at home and hasn't allowed a home run there in 64 innings in his last 11 starts.
Fantasy Tip: Take this as an opportunity to use Gonzalez ($6,300, 12.6% of cap) as an under-the-radar play, despite his price. The Yankees have been struggling offensively this past week and have scored just 11 runs in their last six games.

Washington Nationals SP Gio Gonzalez allowed six hits and struck out nine in seven scoreless innings in a 1-0 win over the New York Mets Saturday, May 2, and he improved to 6-1 with a 1.66 ERA in nine starts at Citi Field.
Fantasy Tip: Gonzalez ($6,300, 12.6% of cap) has struggled in three of his five starts this year, and while he is a must-start at FantasyScore when he takes the mound in Citi Field, he hasn't been living up to his price tag on a routine basis this year.

Washington Nationals SP Gio Gonzalez has had his next scheduled start pushed back from Friday, May 1, to Saturday, May 2, to make room for SP Max Scherzer (thumb), who returns to action Friday.
Fantasy Tip: Rather than facing Matt Harvey Friday, Gonzalez will now match up against Jonathon Niese, which is a slightly more favorable matchup. At $6,300 (or 12.6% of cap) he is a nice add for FantasyScore owners.

Washington Nationals SP Gio Gonzalez had been scheduled to pitch for the team Friday, July 18, but he missed a team workout Thursday, July 17, and his bullpen session, when one of his flights was canceled, according to manager Matt Williams. Gonzalez tossed a bullpen session Friday, and he will now make the start Sunday, July 20, against the Milwaukee Brewers.

Washington Nationals SP Stephen Strasburg will pitch Friday, July 18, against the Milwaukee Brewers. Strasburg will be followed by SPs Gio Gonzalez and Doug Fister. Manager Matt Williams is waiting on Jodran Zimmermann's (elbow) status before setting the rest of the rotation.
Fantasy Tip: The Nationals pitching staff have been excellent of late, but the Brewers are always a tough matchup. If Zimmermann misses a start, Blake Treinen would be a likely candidate to take his spot. It would be a road start against the Colorado Rockies, though, making Treinen an unattractive speculative add.
