    • Gonzalez will bat third and play shortstop Monday against the Cubs. With Kevin Newman sidelined for the final regular season week of play, Gonzalez figures to see the bulk of playing time at shortstop. Although he's hitting just .252 overall, the 29-year-old is slashing .325/.357/.600 against lefties. Southpaw Jon Lester will get the nod Monday for Chicago.

    • Gonzalez will be on the bench for the first of Friday's two games against the Cardinals. Gonzalez has been Pittsburgh's primary shortstop this season, though he likely wouldn't fill that role for many other teams, as he's hitting an uninspiring .250/.278/.405. Kevin Newman slides to shortstop in his absence.

    • Gonzalez will bat leadoff and play shortstop in Game 1 of Monday's doubleheader against Cincinnati. He's exceeded expectations for Pittsburgh in 2020, collecting a team-leading 19 RBI while slashing .267/.293/.435. Gonzalez is finally consistent action at age 29 in what general manager Ben Cherington has called a "meritocracy" for playing time. He still likely projects as a utilityman in future campaigns, but for now he's playing nearly every day.
