Astros | Evan Gattis, Tyler White sitting

Wed, 04 May 2016 14:23:20 -0700

Houston Astros OF Evan Gattis (rest) and 1B Tyler White (rest) are not starting Wednesday, May 4, against Minnesota Twins SP Phil Hughes. SS Marwin Gonzalez and OF Preston Tucker are in their place, with Gonzalez playing first base and batting seventh, while Tucker is serving as the designated hitter and batting sixth.

Fantasy Tip: White will be on the bench for the second time in three nights, though it's hard to argue that decision considering he's a putrid 2-for-35 over his last 10 ballgames. Gattis is also slumping, having not recorded a hit in his last 11 at-bats. Daily owners can do better than Gonzalez and Tucker from Wednesday's full 15-game slate.

Astros | Tyler White sitting vs. Minnesota

Mon, 02 May 2016 13:21:15 -0700

Houston Astros 1B Tyler White is not in the starting lineup Monday, May 2. SS Marwin Gonzalez is starting at first base and batting seventh against Minnesota Twins SP Jose Berrios Monday.

Fantasy Tip: Currently mired in a 5-for-51 slump with a .396 OPS through his past 14 games, White's fantasy value is plummeting. He can't be started with confidence until he snaps his funk at the dish. Gonzalez is nothing more than a desperation flier in daily contests Monday, as he owns a .255/.294/.375 slash line against right-handed hurlers for his career.

Astros | Luis Valbuena on the bench

Sun, 01 May 2016 12:13:56 -0700

Houston Astros 3B Luis Valbuena is not in the starting lineup against Oakland Athletics SP Rich Hill Sunday, May 1. SS Marwin Gonzalez will start at third base and is batting eighth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Gonzalez is hitting only .222 so far this season and probably can be avoided in most fantasy leagues.

Astros | Luis Valbuena, Jason Castro out

Fri, 29 Apr 2016 16:17:10 -0700

Houston Astros 3B Luis Valbuena and C Jason Castro are not in the starting lineup against Oakland Athletics SP Sean Manaea Friday, April 29. SS Marwin Gonzalez will start at third base and is batting eighth, while C Erik Kratz will start at catcher and is batting ninth.

Fantasy Tip: Gonzalez has gone 4-for-15 with one home run and one RBI over the last seven days and is not a strong option in most leagues. Kratz is hitting only .069 this season and should be avoided in all leagues.

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.
