Marwin Gonzalez trying to finish April on positive note


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/29/2013) Astros shortstop Marwin Gonzalez is aiming to finish April on a high note after hitting a lull in the middle of the month. Following a 4-for-24 slide from April 12-22, which dropped his season average from .444 to .286, Gonzalez enters play Monday against the Yankees batting .333 (6 for 18) in his last five games.

Marwin Gonzalez not a long-term SS solution


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/14/2013) I have no problem with Fantasy owners adding a player like Astros shortstop Marwin Gonzalez and riding the hot hand, but let's just be realistic about his long-term outlook, which isn't very promising.

Gonzalez's slash line in the minors was .260/.307/.355/.662. Offense has never been his strong suit. It's worth noting Gonzalez's BABIP through eight games is .400, which is well above his career .275 average, per FanGraphs.com. He's just getting the hits to fall right now.

If you are in need of shortstop help in the short-term, then get as much out of Gonzalez as you can, but please don't look to him as a long-term solution.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/10/2013) Astros manager Bo Porter told MLB.com Wednesday that shortstop Marwin Gonzalez has earned more playing time.

Marwin Gonzalez breaks up perfect game


by Ed Gauna | CBSSports.com
(4/3/2013) Astros shortstop Marwin Gonzalez received his first start on Tuesday night against the Rangers and kept his club off the wrong side of history. After going 0 for 2 with a strikeout in his first two at-bats, he came up in the bottom of the ninth inning with two away and Texas starter Yu Darvish one out away from pitching a perfect game.

Marwin Gonzalez goes yard vs. Cubs


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Stay away from Astros' shortstops


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/24/2013) Now that we have the news the Astros are moving forward with Ronny Cedeno and Marwin Gonzalez at shortstop, it doesn't exactly stir up a lot of intrigue for Fantasy owners. It would have been better if Tyler Greene ran away with the job because at least he had some untapped offensive potential, but now he's not even going to be on the Astros' roster. 

Gonzalez's and Cedeno's strength is defense, so there's not much here for Fantasy owners to see. Neither have great offensive upside and could end up splitting playing time. Both players are desperation AL-only Fantasy options, so continue to look toward better alternatives on Draft Day.
