Astros' Marwin Gonzalez: Avoids arbitration
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Gonzalez agreed to a one-year, $3.725 million deal with the Astros on Wednesday, avoiding arbitration, Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports reports.

Gonzalez will return to the Astros in his super-utility role, where he started games at five different positions in 2016. Despite establishing many career highs last year (plate appearances and games played), his opportunities will likely drop off in 2017 due to Houston's offseason acquisitions.

Astros' Marwin Gonzalez: Will resume super-utility role in 2017
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Gonzalez will remain a part of the Astros' lineup despite several offseason acquisitions designed to bolster the offense.

Gonzalez is a super-utility player that started games at five different positions for the Astros in 2016, establishing new career highs with 518 plate appearances and 141 games played, including a team-leading 74 starts at first base. However, the switch-hitter's opportunities should drop off in 2017. The team's offseason acquisitions of Carols Beltran, Josh Reddick and Norichika Aoki will reduce the need for Gonzalez in the outfield, while Yulieski Gurriel is presumed to be the primary first baseman.

Astros' Marwin Gonzalez: Goes 3-for-4 with three-run homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gonzalez went 3-for-4 with two doubles and a three-run homer in a 4-2 win over Cleveland on Tuesday.

Gonzalez single-handedly ruined Corey Kluber's night after missing nearly a week with a hamstring injury. His three-run homer in the second set the tone for the game and he added two doubles later on for good measure. Still, this light-hitting first baseman hasn't consistently delivered the power numbers (six homers, 27 RBI for the second half) needed at the position. While it's tough to overlook a performance like Tuesday's, it's hard to consider him anything beyond a waiver wire pickup in deeper leagues at this point.

Astros' Marwin Gonzalez: Back in action Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Gonzalez (hamstring) is in the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Indians.

Gonzalez was held out of the lineup four days in a row due to his hamstring injury, but he was able to pinch-hit Monday and will return to the lineup one day later. Gonzalez will man first base and hit eighth against Indians starter Corey Kluber.

Astros' Marwin Gonzalez: Remains on sidelines Monday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Gonzalez remains out of the lineup Monday against the Indians.

Gonzalez has yet to see an at-bat since he exited Wednesday's contest early with a hamstring injury. He had been getting regular playing time at first base before suffering the injury, and since then, Yuniesky Gurriel has received two of the four starts available, including Monday evening's matchup.
