Astros | Carlos Correa sitting vs. Royals

Wed, 01 Jul 2015 15:38:14 -0700

Houston Astros SS Carlos Correa is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, July 1. SS Marwin Gonzalez is starting at shortstop and batting eighth against Kansas City Royals SP Edinson Volquez Wednesday.

Fantasy Tip: Correa ($5,100, 10.2% of cap) has been as advertised with 13 runs, five home runs, 15 RBI, four stolen bases and a .287/.309/.543 slash line over his first 22 games. He should be owned in all fantasy formats, and he is an excellent FantasyScore option in favorable matchups. Gonzalez ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) projects as nothing more than a low-priced flier for daily contests Wednesday.

Astros | Luis Valbuena not starting Tuesday

Tue, 30 Jun 2015 13:59:12 -0700

Houston Astros 3B Luis Valbuena is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, June 30, against the Kansas City Royals. SS Marwin Gonzalez is playing third base.

Fantasy Tip: Valbuena ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) is hitting .165-5-11 against left-handed pitchers, which likely merits his sitting down against a lefty. Gonzalez ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) is .263-2-6 against lefties and makes for a better FantasyScore play.

Astros | Chris Carter resting Thursday

Thu, 25 Jun 2015 16:10:45 -0700

Houston Astros 1B Chris Carter is not in the starting lineup Thursday, June 25. SS Marwin Gonzalez is starting at first and hitting eighth against New York Yankees SP Adam Warren.

Fantasy Tip: Gonzalez ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) is a light-hitting utility infielder for the 'Stros and should be low on your list of FantasyScore shortstops to use this evening. Gonzalez is hitting only .229 (24-for-105) with two home runs and 11 RBI against right-handers this year.

Astros | Jose Altuve remains out

Sat, 20 Jun 2015 15:14:14 -0700

Houston Astros 2B Jose Altuve (hamstring) remains out of the starting lineup Saturday, June 20, against the Seattle Mariners. SS Marwin Gonzalez will start at second base and hit eighth in the order against RHP Taijuan Walker.

Fantasy Tip: Gonzalez ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) went 2-for-3 with a double and a home run Friday, as he extended his hit streak to five games. Gonzalez can be used as a low-risk flier in GPP tournaments.

Astros | Jose Altuve not starting

Fri, 19 Jun 2015 16:17:28 -0700

Houston Astros 2B Jose Altuve (hamstring) is not in the starting lineup against Seattle Mariners SP Roenis Elias Friday, June 19. SS Marwin Gonzalez will start at second base and is batting ninth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Altuve ($5,400, 10.8% of cap) should be considered day-to-day at this point, so owners should look for any updates on his status. Gonzalez ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) has recorded one hits in each of his last four games but is hitting only .146 this month, so owners should be able to find a better option.

Thu, 18 Jun 2015 09:12:14 -0700

Houston Astros 2B Jose Altuve (hamstring) is out of the lineup Thursday, June 18, in favor of 2B Marwin Gonzalez.

Fantasy Tip: Gonzalez ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) faces David Hale in Colorado, but he doesn't have enough upside offensively to use on FantasyScore.

Astros | Jose Altuve still out

Mon, 15 Jun 2015 13:58:18 -0700

Houston Astros 2B Jose Altuve (hamstring) is not in the starting line Monday, June 15. SS Marwin Gonzalez is starting at the keystone and batting eighth against Colorado Rockies SP Chad Bettis Monday.

Fantasy Tip: Check back for updates on Altuve ($5,700, 11.4% of cap), who will miss his third consecutive game Monday. Gonzalez ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) is nothing more than a desperation source of cap relief for FantasyScore contests Monday, as he is hitting just .213 with a .576 OPS this season.

Astros | Jose Altuve to miss another game

Sun, 14 Jun 2015 10:42:28 -0700

Houston Astros 2B Jose Altuve (hamstring) is not in the starting lineup against Seattle Mariners SP Roenis Elias Sunday, June 14. SS Marwin Gonzalez will start at second base and is batting ninth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Owners should continue to monitor the situation to see when Altuve ($5,700, 11.4% of cap) can return. Gonzalez ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) has only three hits over his last 11 games and is not a great option on FantasyScore.
