Astros | Marwin Gonzalez sitting vs. Detroit

Thu, 21 May 2015 07:58:11 -0700

Houston Astros SS Marwin Gonzalez is not in the starting lineup against the Detroit Tigers Thursday, May 21. SS Jonathan Villar is batting seventh and starting at shortstop Thursday.

Fantasy Tip: Facing tough-lefty David Price, Villar ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) should be viewed as nothing more than a desperation flier. Make sure to avoid Gonzalez ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) in all fantasy formats Thursday, too.

Astros | Marwin Gonzalez not in the lineup

Sun, 17 May 2015 08:18:08 -0700

Houston Astros SS Marwin Gonzalez is not in the starting lineup Sunday, May 17. SS Jonathan Villar will be the starting shortstop for the Astros.

Fantasy Tip: Gonzalez ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) has played in six of the last seven games and likely is receiving a day off. Villar ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) is only his playing better in May but is still hitting only .205 this season and is not a great option on FantasyScore.

Astros | Marwin Gonzalez sitting vs. Giants

Wed, 13 May 2015 14:56:09 -0700

Houston Astros SS Marwin Gonzalez is not in the starting lineup against the San Francisco Giants Wednesday, May 13. SS Jonathan Villar is starting at shortstop and batting ninth.

Fantasy Tip: Gonzalez ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) and Villar ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) could enter a platoon with Jed Lowrie (thumb) on the 60-day disabled list, but neither boast significant upside for seasonal leagues. FantasyScore players should view Gonzalez and Villar as low-priced desperation plays, until either proves otherwise.

Houston Astros SS Marwin Gonzalez is not in the starting lineup Thursday, May 7. SS Jonathan Villar is starting at shortstop and hitting ninth in the batting order against Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Hector Santiago.

Fantasy Tip: Villar ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) shouldn't excite any FantasyScore owners tonight, especially while hitting ninth. Pass.

Astros | Marwin Gonzalez in lineup

Sat, 02 May 2015 15:05:38 -0700

Houston Astros 1B Marwin Gonzalez is in the lineup Saturday, May 2, against the Seattle Mariners. Gonzalez gives 1B Chris Carter the day off.

Fantasy Tip: Gonzalez ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) has a .244 batting average through his first 42 plate appearances of the season. Gonzalez is a career .255-hitter against righties and goes up against Taijuan Walker of the Mariners. FantasyScore owners should avoid Gonzalez, but if desperate for cap space, Gonzalez will have upside while batting sixth in the order.

Astros | Jed Lowrie out Tuesday

Tue, 21 Apr 2015 16:31:14 -0700

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.

Astros | Chris Carter on the bench

Mon, 20 Apr 2015 15:15:22 -0700

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.

Astros | No primary 1B for Houston

Wed, 01 Apr 2015 07:31:46 -0700

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.
