      Astros' Marwin Gonzalez: Avoids arbitration with Astros

      Gonzalez agreed to a one-year, $2 million deal with the Astros on Friday, avoiding arbitration, the Houston Chronicle's Evan Drellich reports. He offers much more real life value to the Astros than he could ever offer fantasy owners. Gonzalez can play every position in the infield in a pinch, but he will only start two or three days per week unless someone suffers an injury. Last year he posted career highs in OPS (.759), wOBA (.329), wRC+ (108) and home runs (12), so if he can repeat that performance in 2016 he will have value in AL-only formats and very deep mixed leagues.

This makes it official that the Astros will bring the 26-year-old back for another season in Houston. This comes as no surprise, as Gonzalez was used quite frequently by the Astros all over the diamond, while becoming a consistent defensive replacement for Chris Carter at first base by the season's end. He also batted a career-best .279 with 12 homers and 34 RBI in 2015, which he'll hope to build upon in 2016.
