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.
