Astros' Marwin Gonzalez: Avoids arbitration with Astros
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Marwin Gonzalez agreed to a one-year, $2 million deal with the Houston 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.

Astros' Marwin Gonzalez: Tendered a contract by the Astros
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Gonzalez was tendered a contract by the Astros on Wednesday, Evan Drellich of the the Houston Chronicle reports.

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.

by Rotowire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Astros infielder Marwin Gonzalez (finger) is back in the lineup Tuesday against the Angels. He battled issues with his index finger, thumb, and wrist over the past week, but has been cleared to return Tuesday to face lefty Hector Santiago.

The 26-year-old is starting left field in place of Colby Rasmus, marking Gonzalez's eighth start at the position this season and ninth of his career.

Astros shortstop Marwin Gonzalez not in Saturday's lineup
by Rotowire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Astros shortstop Marwin Gonzalez (finger) is out of the lineup Saturday against the Athletics. Gonzalez will miss out on a third straight start on account of the injury, with Luis Valbuena picking up the nod at first base.

The Astros are expected him to see some action over the weekend, so there's a chance he could be ready to return to the lineup for Sunday's series finale.
