Astros' Marwin Gonzalez: Making fifth straight start Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Gonzalez will start at third base and bat second in the order Sunday against the White Sox. It will mark his fifth consecutive start.

As a switch-hitter who can play just about every position except pitcher and catcher, Gonzalez should continue to see plenty of at-bats on a weekly basis, even if he doesn't have a direct path to a starting role at any spot in particular. While he hasn't torn it up at the plate this season, he's a perfectly respectable cog in the Astros' lineup, producing a .253/.302/.406 slash line to go with six homers and eight steals in 229 at-bats.

Astros' Marwin Gonzalez: On the bench Monday against Angels
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Gonzalez is out of the lineup for Monday's game against the Angels.

Gonzalez's versatility will give him plenty of chances to play the rest of the season, but today's lineup -- with Carlos Correa at shortstop, Jose Altuve at second base, A.J. Reed at first base, Luis Valbuena at third base and Evan Gattis at DH -- is likely to be the most common for Houston the rest of the way. While Gonzalez will get starts as these players get regular days off, look for him to spend the rest of the season in a super-utility role with multiple games per week coming off the bench.

Astros' Marwin Gonzalez: Could still see frequent at-bats following Reed promotion
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gonzalez will start at second base and bat second in the order Sunday against the Royals, Josh Vernier of 610 Sports reports.

The Astros called up top prospect A.J. Reed from Triple-A Fresno on Saturday and figure to install him as their primary first baseman, but Reed's promotion won't necessarily spell an end to Gonzalez's usefulness in AL-only and deeper mixers. While Gonzalez had been playing a lot of first base prior to Reed's arrival, he's among the more versatile players on the team, possessing the ability to play all four infield spots and both of the corner spots in the outfield. He should pick up at least a few starts a week at multiple spots since he's been productive when he's in the lineup, owning a .258/.311/.411 slash line on the season to go with six homers and eight steals.

Astros' Marwin Gonzalez: Mashes sixth homer of season Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gonzalez went 2-for-6 with a homer, two runs and two RBI Saturday at the Royals.

Gonzalez left the yard for the sixth time this year to give the Astros a seven-run lead in the fourth inning of a game they'd win easily. He's now hit safely in each of his last five games to raise his batting average to .258.

Astros' Marwin Gonzalez: Making third straight start at first base
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gonzalez will make his third straight start at first base Sunday against the Reds.

With Tyler White having recently been demoted to Triple-A Fresno, Gonzalez should serve as the Astros' primary option at first base. His regular duties may not last long, however, as top prospect A.J. Reed is waiting in the wings for his MLB debut at Triple-A.
