Indians' Erik Gonzalez: In mix for utility role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gonzalez will compete for one of the final spots on the 25-man during spring training, Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports.

For now, it seems like his main competition for the utility infielder role is Giovanny Urshela. Both 26-year-old players are out of options, so that situation provides little clarity heading into the spring. Gonzalez does have a bit of an edge when it comes to speed, as he logged double-digit steal seasons in four of the past five years compared to Urshela's goose egg in that category the last three years. The speedy middle infielder also hit better than Urshela in the majors, as his batting average over the past two seasons is roughly 40 points higher. Past stats aside, Gonzalez will still need to perform well in Cactus League action to land a spot on the Opening Day roster.

Indians' Erik Gonzalez: Goes deep twice Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gonzalez went 2-for-4 with two home runs and four RBI in Thursday's 11-2 win over the White Sox.

Gonzalez took fill-in starter Mike Pelfrey deep for a two-run shot in the third inning after Edwin Encarnacion got him in the first and Francisco Lindor hit one out in the second. He later added a sacrifice fly in the seventh and a solo homer in the ninth. Despite this performance, the 26-year-old middle infielder doesn't have the offensive capabilities of his fellow infielders, which is why he usually bats ninth when he's inserted into the lineup. Gonzalez's .281/.293/.469 line in 100 plate appearances is respectable, though.

Indians' Erik Gonzalez: Recalled from Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gonzalez was recalled from Triple-A Columbus on Wednesday.

For the third time this season, Jason Kipnis (hamstring) landed on the DL. Gonzalez owns a .272/.400/.672 slash line over 39 games with the Tribe this year. He'll fill the reserve role at second and third base while Kipnis is sidelined.

Indians' Erik Gonzalez: Heads back to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gonzalez was optioned to Triple-A Columbus on Thursday, Paul Hoynes of Cleveland.com reports.

Just a day after he was summoned back to the big club, Gonzalez will head back to the minors to clear room for recently acquired Jay Bruce. The 25-year-old, who has slashed .263/.272/.400 in 80 at-bats for the Indians this season, will rejoin Columbus with his eyes set on a September call up.

Indians' Erik Gonzalez: Recalled by Indians
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gonzalez was recalled by the Indians on Wednesday, Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports.

Gonzalez returns to the big leagues just days after being sent down to Triple-A Columbus, taking the roster spot of the injured Michael Brantley (ankle). The 25-year-old has mainly served in a utility role for Cleveland this year, slashing a respectable .263/.272/.400 over just 80 at-bats and playing four different positions in the field. He'll likely find himself relegated to a reserve bat off the bench, only to be optioned down once Brantley is able to return from his mild ankle sprain.
