Red Sox's Marwin Gonzalez: Set for utility role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gonzalez will play all over the field this season, Bill Koch of The Providence Journal reports.

Gonzalez has played all over the diamond throughout his career, racking up starts at first, second and third base as well as both corner outfield spots. There's no clear opening on the Red Sox roster for him to play every day, making it little surprise that he will continue to shift around the field. Gonzalez will look to bounce back from one of his worst seasons, as he hit just .211/.286/.320 across 199 plate appearances with the Twins in 2020.

Red Sox's Marwin Gonzalez: Joins Red Sox
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gonzalez agreed to a one-year, $3 million deal with the Red Sox on Thursday, Mark Feinsand of MLB.com reports.

Gonzalez played a versatile role for the Twins in 2020, earning substantial playing time at first, second and third base as well as in right field. He should have the chance to fill a similar utility role in Boston, serving as insurance for the likes of Bobby Dalbec and newly-acquired Franchy Cordero. Since posting a 104 wRC+ in 2018 as a member of the Astros, Gonzalez has slipped to post marks of 93 and 66 in the past two seasons.

Twins' Marwin Gonzalez: On base twice in return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gonzalez (illness) went 1-for-3 with a walk in Wednesday's 5-1 win over the White Sox.

Gonzalez played the full game at second base after missing two contests due to illness. The 31-year-old is slashing a mild .215/.291/.333 with five homers, 19 RBI and 11 runs scored in 44 games this season. He figures to be the Twins' primary second baseman down the stretch, although Ehire Adrianza could also see the occasional start at the keystone.

Twins' Marwin Gonzalez: Back in action Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gonzalez (illness) is starting at second base and batting seventh Wednesday against the White Sox.

The 31-year-old missed the past two games due to a non-COVID-19 related illness, but he'll rejoin the lineup for Wednesday's contest. Gonzalez has hit homers in his last two games and should see the bulk of his time at second base with Luis Arraez (knee) on the injured list.

Twins' Marwin Gonzalez: Remains out Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gonzalez (illness) isn't in Tuesday's lineup against the White Sox.

Gonzalez was scratched from Monday's lineup due to an illness not related to COVID-19, and he'll remain on the bench Tuesday. Travis Blankenhorn will make his major-league debut as the second baseman in his absence.

Twins' Marwin Gonzalez: Scratched from lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gonzalez was scratched from Monday's lineup due to an illness not related to COVID-19, Betsy Helfand of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

Gonzalez was initially in line to play second base and bat eighth against the White Sox on Monday, but he'll be unable to do so as a result of his illness. It's unclear whether he'll miss any additional time beyond Monday's contest.

Twins' Marwin Gonzalez: Homers in back-to-back games
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gonzalez went 1-for-3 with a home run and three RBI in Sunday's 7-5 win over Cleveland.

Gonzalez put the Twins on the board with his two-run shot in the third inning, giving him five long balls on the season and his second in as many days. The 31-year-old utilityman is slashing .213/.286/.333 with 19 RBI.

Twins' Marwin Gonzalez: Smacks two-run homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gonzalez went 2-for-3 with a two-run homer against Cleveland on Saturday.

Gonzalez took Zach Plesac yard in the second inning to tally his fourth home run of the season. It was Gonzalez's first home run since Aug. 19 and his first hit in his last 13 at-bats. His playing time has taken a hit since the return of Josh Donaldson, though Gonzalez is still a regular option for the Twins at second base.

Twins' Marwin Gonzalez: Shifting into utility role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gonzalez will start at second base and will bat fifth Monday against the Tigers.

Though he'll crack the lineup for the fourth time in five games, Gonzalez no longer has a permanent home at third base like he did for all of August while Josh Donaldson was sidelined with a calf injury. Gonzalez's versatility should still allow him to pick up a handful of starts per week, as he'll get the nod at the keystone in Monday's series finale while Luis Arraez receives a breather.

Twins' Marwin Gonzalez: Two RBI in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gonzalez went 2-for-4 with a double, two RBI and a walk in the 5-4 win over Kansas City on Sunday.

Gonzalez extended Minnesota's lead to 4-0 with a two-run double off Kris Bubic in the third inning. The utility man has his slash line up to .250/.327/.375 following his two-hit performance Sunday.

Twins' Marwin Gonzalez: Not starting Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gonzalez isn't in the lineup Thursday against the Brewers.

Gonzalez has been the primary option at third base while Josh Donaldson (calf) is on the injured list, and he broke out of an 0-for-18 skid with two hits Wednesday. However, he'll get a breather Thursday with Ehire Adrianza starting at third base.

Twins' Marwin Gonzalez: Ends skid with two hits
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gonzalez went 2-for-4 with a solo home run in Wednesday's loss to the Brewers.

Gonzalez singled in the fourth inning to end an 0-for-18 slide. He later spoiled the Brewers' shutout with his third home run of the season. With that, Gonzalez is back up to .247/.302/.377. He should continue to hold down the third-base spot until Josh Donaldson (calf) is back, at which point Gonzalez will likely return to a super-utility role.

Twins' Marwin Gonzalez: Primary Donaldson replacement
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gonzalez will start at third base and bat fifth Sunday against the Royals.

Gonzalez is making his 10th straight start Sunday and his second in a row at third base in place of Josh Donaldson (calf), who was placed on the 10-day injured list Friday. The Twins haven't provided a clear timeline for Donaldson's return, but Gonzalez still makes for an intriguing short-term pickup in the majority of leagues while he's swinging a hot bat. Gonzalez has recorded multi-hit games in three of his last four starts and is slashing .350/.435/.500 through 46 plate appearances on the season.

Twins' Marwin Gonzalez: Getting time at third base
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gonzalez started his third consecutive game at third base and went 0-for-3 with a walk in Monday's win over Pittsburgh. He's 3-for-9 in his last three games.

Gonzalez has been getting time at third base with Josh Donaldson sidelined with a calf injury. Donaldson isn't expected to return to the lineup until at least Wednesday.

Twins' Marwin Gonzalez: Gets time in outfield
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gonzalez started in right field and went 0-for-4 in Wednesday's exhibition loss to the Cubs.

Gonzalez looked set to start at first base when the regular season began when Miguel Sano was out with COVID-19. With Sano back, Gonzalez may begin the season in right field with Byron Buxton working his way back from a foot injury and Max Kepler moving to center field. Either way, Gonzalez should keep his near everyday spot in the lineup again this season while rotating positions based on other player's off days and injuries.

Twins' Marwin Gonzalez: Getting time at first base
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gonzalez has been getting playing time at first base during summer camp with Miguel Sano sidelined with COVID-19, MLB.com reports.

Gonzalez was limited in the early stages of spring training while working back from a minor right knee procedure he required in October. With the layoff, he's back to full speed. If Sano, who is asymptomatic, isn't able to return or be ready for the start of the 60-game regular season, Gonzalez could get regular duty at first base. Gonzalez will likely keep his near everyday spot in the lineup again this season while rotating positions based on other player's off days and injuries.

Twins' Marwin Gonzalez: Strengthening knee during layoff
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gonzalez, who was working his way back from an offseason knee procedure, should be fully up to speed by the time the season starts, Do-Hyoung Park of MLB.com reports.

He had only played in three spring games, going 3-for-7 with one home run and one strikeout, and had been gradually getting acclimated with playing the outfield. However, this time off will allow him to get to where he needs to be from a physical standpoint, particularly with regard to his outfield defense.

Twins' Marwin Gonzalez: Making spring debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gonzalez (knee) will start at second base and bat eighth in Tuesday's Grapefruit League game against the Tigers, Betsy Helfand of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

The 30-year-old will be making his spring debut after he was limited in the early stages of camp while working back from the minor right knee procedure he required in October. Assuming Gonzalez experiences nothing more than minor soreness in the knee this spring, he should avoid the injured list to begin the regular season. Gonzalez is expected to serve as the Twins' top utility man in 2020, a role that should afford him a handful of starts per week.

Twins' Marwin Gonzalez: Working back from knee procedure
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gonzalez is taking part in daily rehab sessions after undergoing a minor procedure on his right knee in October, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

He's going to miss Minnesota's annual TwinsFest next weekend as a result, but it doesn't sound like an injury that will be a significant issue when spring training begins. Still, monitor his progress. Gonzalez is set to return to a utility role after the Twins signed Josh Donaldson with Miguel Sano moving to first base. The Twins will still likely give him regular duty at different positions to give other players rest, as they did last year. He'll also get regular playing time when a starter is injured.

Twins' Marwin Gonzalez: Starting in left field
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gonzalez (oblique) will bat seventh and play left field in Game 1 of the ALDS on Friday against the Yankees.

Gonzalez returns from an oblique strain to start for the first time since Sept. 22. He recorded a .264/.322/.414 slash line in his first season in Minnesota and should fill a regular role in the back half of the lineup during the playoffs.
