Yankees' Marwin Gonzalez: Gets third straight start
Gonzalez will start at third base and bat ninth in Monday's game against the Orioles.
After getting two straight starts in left field to close out the weekend series with the White Sox while Joey Gallo was out with an illness that later resulted in him being placed on the COVID-19-related injured list, Gonzalez will shift to the infield for the Yankees' series opener with Baltimore. Third base opened up for Gonzalez with both DJ LeMahieu and Josh Donaldson heading to the bench, but both players are likely just getting routine maintenance following Sunday's doubleheader. Left field still looks to be Gonzalez's main path to regular playing time while Gallo is on the shelf.... See More ... See Less
Yankees' Marwin Gonzalez: Knocks two doubles Tuesday
Gonzalez went 2-for-4 with a pair of doubles, a run and an RBI in Tuesday's 9-1 victory against the Blue Jays.
Gonzalez featured in a big six-run seventh inning for the Yankees, driving in a run with a double and later coming around to score. This was his first multi-hit performance of the season, though that's understandable since most of his appearances thus far have come off the bench. Gonzalez is slashing .308/.333/.538 with four runs and three RBI across 15 plate appearances. Three of his four hits have gone for doubles.... See More ... See Less
Yankees' Marwin Gonzalez: Makes Opening Day roster
The Yankees selected Gonzalez's contract Thursday.
As expected, Gonzalez has made the Yankees' Opening Day roster as the team's top utility man. Though Gonzalez has seen most of his big-league action as an infielder, he could see most of his initial opportunities in the outfield, given that the Yankees have all of Anthony Rizzo, DJ LeMahieu, Josh Donaldson, Isiah Kiner-Falefa and Gleyber Torres on hand as infield options....

Yankees' Marwin Gonzalez: Expected to make Opening Day roster
Gonzalez told Marly Rivera of ESPN.com on Tuesday that he was notified by Yankees manager Aaron Boone of his addition to the Opening Day roster.
The move isn't yet official, and the Yankees will need to clear a spot for Gonzalez on the 40-man roster if his addition does indeed move forward. The veteran figures to add a super-utility presence to the club's roster, as he is capable of playing all over the infield and in both corner outfield spots. Gonzalez was one of the team's top hitters this spring, slashing .375/.400/.792 with three home runs, 10 RBI and five runs across 23 plate appearances.... See More ... See Less
Yankees' Marwin Gonzalez: Enjoying strong spring
Gonzalez went 3-for-3 with a home run, two runs and four RBI in Tuesday's Grapefruit League win over Philadelphia.
Gonzalez kicked off the scoring for the Yankees in the second inning with a three-run homer off Aaron Nola. The long ball was his third of the spring, and he leads the team with nine RBI while slashing .545/.583/1.364. Gonzalez was signed to a minor-league contract March 20 and is in camp as a non-roster invitee, but he has a good chance of making the Opening Day roster given his excellent exhibition performance and long-established versatility....

Yankees' Marwin Gonzalez: Joins Yankees on MiLB deal
Gonzalez signed a minor-league contract with the Yankees on Sunday, Mark Feinsand of MLB.com reports.
Gonzalez will join New York for spring training and attempt to earn a spot on the Opening Day roster. He appeared in 91 games between the Red Sox and Astros last year and hit .199/.275/.304 with five home runs, 30 runs and 28 RBI in 307 plate appearances.... See More ... See Less
Astros' Marwin Gonzalez: Joins roster for World Series
Gonzalez was included on the Astros' World Series roster, Brian McTaggart of MLB.com reports.
Gonzalez wasn't on the roster for the first two rounds of the playoffs, but he's needed for the World Series with Jake Meyers out with a shoulder injury. The veteran utility man has had some notable playoff moments in the past for the Astros but is a lifetime .230/.304/.372 hitter in 35 postseason contests and hit just .199/.75/.304 in the regular season this year....

Astros' Marwin Gonzalez: Not on ALDS roster
Gonzalez isn't on the Astros' ALDS roster, Danielle Lerner of the Houston Chronicle reports.
Gonzalez spent the final month of the season on the major-league roster, but he won't serve as depth to begin the ALDS. However, he'll be on the taxi squad and will be available as an emergency fill-in if needed.... See More ... See Less
Astros' Marwin Gonzalez: Grand fill-in for Altuve
Gonzalez started at second base for a resting Jose Altuve and went 2-for-5 with a home run, five RBI and a second run scored in Monday's 10-0 win over the Angels.
Gonzalez capped off the win with a ninth-inning grand slam. Three of his four hits since joining Houston's big-league roster two weeks ago have left the yard. Gonzalez is 4-for-21 over seven games.... See More ... See Less
Astros' Marwin Gonzalez: Goes deep in Wednesday win
Gonzalez went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in Wednesday's victory over the Rangers.
Gonzalez went deep to right field in the second inning to extend Houston's lead to 3-0. It was Gonzalez's second homer in four games since joining the Astros, although those are his only two hits in 10 at-bats during that stretch. He's hitting just .202 with a .587 OPS in 282 plate appearances between Boston and Houston this season.... See More ... See Less
Astros' Marwin Gonzalez: First homer in second Houston stint
Gonzalez went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in Wednesday's 8-5 loss to Seattle.
In his first start since rejoining the Astros after his release from the Red Sox in August, Gonzalez delivered a go-ahead two-run home run in the second inning. The utility man had all of two homers in 77 contests with Boston. He's now slashing .202/.280/.296 with 22 RBI, 26 runs scored and three stolen bases across 276 plate appearances. Expect the 32-year-old to fill in around the diamond as necessary, but he's unlikely to capture a full-time role at any position.... See More ... See Less
Astros' Marwin Gonzalez: Called up from minors
The Astros selected Gonzalez from Triple-A Sugar Land on Sunday, Daniel Guerrero of MLB.com reports.
Gonzalez went 2-for-7 with a double in his two games with Sugar Land, and now he joins the Astros as depth across the infield and outfield. The veteran was hapless offensively for the Red Sox this season, hitting .202/.281/.285 in 271 plate appearances, so he doesn't figure to get frequent starting opportunities with Houston....

Astros' Marwin Gonzalez: Playing in games
Gonzalez began playing in games with the Gulf Coast Astros on Tuesday, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports.
Gonzalez reported to the Astros' spring training facility after inking a minor-league deal last Friday. The veteran utility man is playing in his first game with the rookie-level Gulf Coast Astros on Tuesday, and it seems likely that he'll move up to Triple-A Sugar Land after he gets a few contests under his belt. Gonzalez could be a candidate to receive a major-league call-up at some point in September, but he'll need to show the Astros that he's capable of improving on the .202/285/.566 slash line that he posted across 271 plate appearances with Boston earlier this season....

Astros' Marwin Gonzalez: Returns to Astros on minors deal
Gonzalez signed a minor-league contract with the Astros on Friday.
Gonzalez was released by Boston on Aug. 16 after slashing an underwhelming .202/.281/.285 across 271 plate appearances. The veteran utility man will return to the organization that he spent his first seven big-league seasons with, though it's unclear if he'll crack the 26-man roster down the stretch. Gonzalez will report to the Astros' spring training facility in West Palm Beach before likely being assigned to Triple-A Sugar Land in the coming days.... See More ... See Less
Marwin Gonzalez: Released by Boston
Gonzalez was released by Boston on Monday, Chris Cotillo of The Springfield Republican reports.
Gonzalez was designated for assignment by Boston on Friday, and he won't remain in the organization after he went unclaimed on waivers. The 32-year-old has plenty of defensive versatility, but he struggled to get things going at the plate this year, as he slashed .202/.281/.285 with two homers, 25 runs, 20 RBI and three stolen bases in 77 games with the Red Sox in 2021....

Red Sox's Marwin Gonzalez: Designated for assignment
Gonzalez was designated for assignment by the Red Sox on Friday, Rob Bradford of WEEI.com reports.
Gonzalez's excellent 2017 season continues to fade further into the rearview mirror and looks more and more like an extreme outlier. He managed a .907 OPS that year but hasn't reached .760 in that category in any of his other nine big-league seasons. The veteran could find a new home elsewhere for the stretch run, as he's still nominally useful due to his ability to play nearly every position, but even utility players need to hit better than the .202/.281/.285 he's managed this season. Kyle Schwarber (groin) was activated off the injured list in a corresponding move.... See More ... See Less
Red Sox's Marwin Gonzalez: Starts at second base
Gonzalez started at second base and went 1-for-4 with a run scored in Friday's 12-4 loss to the Blue Jays.
Gonzalez singled in the fifth inning, reached second base, and came around to score on an Enrique Hernandez single with a runner in scoring position, a rarity these days for the slumping Red Sox. Gonzalez has made three starts, all at second base, in the four games since coming off the injured list and is 2-for-12.... See More ... See Less
Red Sox's Marwin Gonzalez: Activated, starting Tuesday
Gonzalez (hamstring) was activated from the 10-day injured list and is batting seventh as the second baseman Tuesday in Detroit, Chris Cotillo of The Springfield Republican reports.
A right hamstring strain has sidelined Gonzalez since July 16, at which point he was hitting .205/.286/.297 with two home runs and 18 RBI in 70 games this season. The utility man figures to get considerable playing time at first base, given Boston's lack of production of late at that position.... See More ... See Less
