Astros to sit Chris Carter, start Marwin Gonzalez at 1B on Monday
by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer

With the recent struggles of Chris Carter, the Astros will start Marwin Gonzalez at first base and bat him seventh on Monday in Seattle. 

This is the third start of the year for Gonzalez, second at first base. 

In 10 at-bats this season, Gonzalez is 3 for 10 with a homer and a double.

Carter has begun the year 3 for 40 (.075 avg.) with no extra-base hits and has struck out 17 times.

"He's frustrated to the extent no one likes to get outs, but we're still at the very early stages, and he's done this before and come out of it," manager A.J. Hinch said, per MLB.com. "We believe he's going to be fine."

Astros' Chris Carter looking for first HR after dismal two weeks
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Astros first baseman Chris Carter has struggled heavily during the first two weeks of the season, going 3 for 40 with no extra-base hits and striking out 17 times.

Carter has drawn four walks and scored one run but has managed just a .075/.159/.075 line. The righty slugger, who is prone to hitless stretches, could be on the verge of turning things around offensively, as the Astros are scheduled to face three lefty starters in a four-game span starting Wednesday. He has hit much better against lefties in 2014, posting a .244/.350/.519 line with 10 home runs in 135 at-bats.

Carter has also delivered quality career numbers at Safeco Field, where he's opening a three-game series Monday. The first baseman has hit .284/.370/.547 with seven home runs and 18 RBI in 95 at-bats against the Mariners on the road.

Astros first baseman Chris Carter just 1 for 19 to start season
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

Astros first baseman Chris Carter is still trying to find his way at the plate to begin the season. Manager A.J. Hinch doesn't think it's a big enough issue to bring it up to him yet, reports the Houston Chronicle.

"I like that we've been able to keep our head above water a little bit without that kind of production," Hinch said. "To sort of hold serve – or whatever analogy I can use – is important for us to stay afloat while those guys are getting themselves on track."

Carter is just 1 for 19 to begin the season, but he thinks some of his outs could have gone either way.

"I hit some balls hard that were caught," Carter said. "It could go either way, so that's the difference of a few hits here and there."

Astros tweak lineup vs. LHP Derek Holland
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Astros manager A.J. Hinch chose to roll with Jonathan Villar at third base and Robbie Grossman in left field Friday night against left-hander Derek Holland and the Rangers, per MLB.com. Luis Valbuena and Colby Rasmus received a day off against the southpaw.

Hinch also flip-flopped struggling DH Evan Gattis and Chris Carter in the batting order. Gattis has started his stint with the Astros 0 for 11 with eighth strikeouts. He will hit fifth, while Carter will move to the cleanup spot.
