Astros | Lefties sitting for Houston

Sat, 26 Sep 2015 08:33:29 -0700

Houston Astros OF Colby Rasmus and 3B Luis Valbuena are not in the starting lineup against Texas Rangers SP Derek Holland Saturday, Sept. 26. 1B Marwin Gonzalez will start in left field and is batting sixth in the lineup, while 1B Chris Carter will start at first base and is batting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Rasmus ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) and Valbuena ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) probably will return to the lineup soon. Gonzalez ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) and Carter ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) have posted solid batting averages during September but neither has posted big home run or RBI totals.

Astros | Colby Rasmus out vs. lefty

Tue, 22 Sep 2015 14:28:27 -0700

Houston Astros OF Colby Rasmus is not in the lineup against Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim left-handed SP Hector Santiago Tuesday, Sept. 22. SS Marwin Gonzalez is starting in left field and hitting sixth.

Fantasy Tip: Don't forget about Gonzalez ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) as a sleeper pick at shortstop against left-handers. He has a slash line of .295/.348/.475 with four of his 10 home runs against them in 122 at-bats.

Astros | Jed Lowrie hoping to play Thursday

Wed, 16 Sep 2015 14:42:02 -0700

Houston Astros OF Jed Lowrie (ankle, foot) is available to play Wednesday, Sept. 16, and he expects to return to the starting lineup Thursday, Sept. 17. SS Marwin Gonzalez is starting at third base and batting seventh against Texas Rangers SP Martin Perez Wednesday.

Fantasy Tip: Gonzalez ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) has been solid against lefties this season with a .298/.351/.479 slash line, so he checks out as a solid source of cap relief for FantasyScore players Wednesday. Lowrie ($4,800, 9.6% of cap) has a .665 OPS over 37 games since returning from the disabled list in late July, so you'll want to see him string together a few solid days at the dish before relying on him in any fantasy format.

Astros | Marwin Gonzalez has finger injury

Tue, 15 Sep 2015 18:19:18 -0700

Houston Astros SS Marwin Gonzalez (finger) missed his second straight game Tuesday, Sept. 15, against the Texas Rangers due to his swollen left index finger. He is considered day to day.

Fantasy Tip: Gonzalez ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) can be a low-end FantasyScore option with some upside when he is in the starting nine. However, give him at least one full game to prove his health before trusting him again.

Astros | Marwin Gonzalez starting vs. Athletics

Wed, 09 Sep 2015 16:07:38 -0700

Houston Astros SS Marwin Gonzalez is starting at first base and batting eighth against Oakland Athletics SP Aaron Brooks Wednesday, Sept. 9. 1B Chris Carter and 3B Luis Valbuena are not in the starting lineup Wednesday.

Fantasy Tip: Expect Houston to ride the hot hand at first base down the stretch, which is a negative for Valbuena ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) and Carter ($3,500, 7.0% of cap). Gonzalez ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) has seen the most playing time of the three of late, and he is a nice FantasyScore target Wednesday. Over his past 21 games, Gonzalez owns a .324/.351/.459 slash line.

Astros | Jed Lowrie out of the lineup

Mon, 07 Sep 2015 11:27:39 -0700

Houston Astros 3B Jed Lowrie is not in the starting lineup against Oakland Athletics SP Felix Doubront Monday, Sept. 7. 1B Marwin Gonzalez will start at third base and is batting sixth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Lowrie ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) likely is receiving a day off and should return in the near future. Gonzalez ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) has at least one hit in each of his last six games and could be a cheaper option on FantasyScore.

Sun, 06 Sep 2015 10:45:03 -0700

Houston Astros OF George Springer is not in the starting lineup against Minnesota Twins SP Tyler Duffey Sunday, Sept. 6. 1B Marwin Gonzalez will start in left field and is batting seventh in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Springer ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) may be receiving a day off since he is coming back from injury. Gonzalez ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) has at least one hit in seven of his last eight games and could be a cheaper option for owners to consider.

Sat, 05 Sep 2015 12:35:34 -0700

Houston Astros INF Marwin Gonzalez will bat seventh and play first base against Minnesota Twins SP Ervin Santana. INF Luis Valbuena is not in the starting lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Gonzalez ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) is 6-for-17 with three runs scored over the past week but should only be used if you are desperate for FantasyScore cap relief.

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.
