Astros | Preston Tucker, Tyler White sitting

Wed, 27 Apr 2016 16:20:53 -0700

Houston Astros OF Preston Tucker and 1B Tyler White are not in the starting lineup Wednesday, April 27. OF Evan Gattis is serving as the designated hitter and is batting fifth, while INF Marwin Gonzalez is starting at first base and batting seventh against Seattle Mariners SP Hisashi Iwakuma.

Fantasy Tip: Gattis is off to a slow start (.222, 8-for-36, no homers) after hernia surgery in the spring, and he's a boom-or-bust candidate for daily lineups. Gonzalez has moderate power, but his fantasy upside is limited Wednesday hitting down in the order in a pitcher's park.

Astros | Tyler White resting Saturday

Sat, 23 Apr 2016 10:13:41 -0700

Houston Astros 1B Tyler White is not in the lineup versus Boston Red Sox SP Clay Buchholz Saturday, April 23. INF Marwin Gonzalez is starting at first base and batting sixth.

Fantasy Tip: White is off to a strong start at the dish, batting .298 with five home runs and 12 RBI through 17 games. However, he is receiving his first day off this season, so he should be removed from all fantasy lineups. Gonzalez is hitting just .185 with one RBI in 27 at-bats and is not a recommended option in any format.

Astros | Marwin Gonzalez draws into the lineup

Wed, 20 Apr 2016 14:41:30 -0700

Houston Astros SS Marwin Gonzalez is playing third base and batting eighth against Texas Rangers SP Cole Hamels Wednesday, April 20. Astros 3B Luis Valbuena is not in the starting lineup Wednesday.

Fantasy Tip: Gonzalez posted a .295/.347/.496 slash line against left-handed pitchers last season, and he projects to see regular at-bats against southpaws. Expect Valbuena to be the odd-man out most nights against lefties, which hurts his fantasy value. Similarly, Gonzalez's fantasy ceiling isn't high enough to warrant a roster spot in the majority of seasonal leagues.

Astros | Luis Valbuena, Colby Rasmus out

Tue, 19 Apr 2016 14:31:33 -0700

Houston Astros 3B Luis Valbuena and OF Colby Rasmus are not in the starting lineup against Texas Rangers left-handed SP Derek Holland Tuesday, April 19. 3B Marwin Gonzalez is starting at third base and hitting seventh, while OF Jake Marisnick sees the start in left field and is batting ninth.

Fantasy Tip: Gonzalez had a nice spring but has only four hits in 19 at-bats to start the season. Still, he could be a successful sleeper option against a southpaw tonight. Marisnick's biggest asset is his speed, but he's unlikely to be able to use it much hitting ninth in the order.

Astros | Carlos Correa will not start

Sun, 17 Apr 2016 10:35:05 -0700

Houston Astros SS Carlos Correa is not in the starting lineup against Detroit Tigers SP Anibal Sanchez Sunday, April 17. SS Marwin Gonzalez will start at shortstop and is batting seventh in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Gonzalez has struggled early this season with only two hits in 15 at-bats. Owners in all leagues should be able to find better players to use and should avoid Gonzalez for the time being.

Astros | Marwin Gonzalez draws into lineup

Thu, 14 Apr 2016 13:39:12 -0700

Houston Astros SS Marwin Gonzalez is starting at third base and batting eighth against Kansas City Royals SP Ian Kennedy Thursday, April 14. 3B Luis Valbuena is not in the starting lineup Thursday.

Fantasy Tip: Gonzalez is off to a 1-for-11 start to the season, and his .700 OPS against right-handed hurlers dating back to 2014 shouldn't instill enough confidence to start him confidently in daily contests Thursday. Make sure to avoid Valbuena in all fantasy formats Thursday, too.

Astros | Luis Valbuena sitting out

Sun, 10 Apr 2016 10:07:39 -0700

Houston Astros 3B Luis Valbuena is not in the starting lineup against Milwaukee Brewers SP Jimmy Nelson Sunday, April 10. SS Marwin Gonzalez will start at third base and is batting seventh in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Gonzalez probably will receive playing time at multiple positions this season but is probably an AL-only player at this point since he does not have strong offensive stats.

Astros | Marwin Gonzalez starting at 1B

Tue, 05 Apr 2016 09:26:51 -0700

Houston Astros SS Marwin Gonzalez is hitting eighth and starting at first base against New York Yankees SP Masahiro Tanaka Tuesday, April 5.

Fantasy Tip: Tyler White won the starting first base job out of spring training, but he'll have to wait to make his debut. Gonzalez is attractive to mainly AL-only owners, but if he starts to see regular time, he could be attractive in deep mixed leagues for his power and multi-position eligibility.

Astros | Marwin Gonzalez to see time at first

Tue, 22 Mar 2016 13:49:51 -0700

Houston Astros SS Marwin Gonzalez will see time at first base this season, according to manager A.J. Hinch.

Fantasy Tip: Gonzalez is one of those super-utility players that can play a variety of positions, and it only makes sense he would see time at first. With Chris Carter gone and Jonathan Singleton not having shown signs of brilliance, Gonzalez could pick up some key at-bats.

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.
