2016

Subscribe now to see our 2016 outlook.

2015

Gonzalez played all over the diamond in 2014, logging starts at every position except pitcher, catcher, and center field for the Astros. Most of them came as the team's primary shortstop, however, as he took over the position upon Jonathan Villar's demotion to Triple-A. Gonzalez delivered a solid, yet unspectacular .277/.327/.400 batting line with six homers and 23 RBI in 285 at-bats (103 games) for the Astros. With the return of Jed Lowrie via free agency, Gonzalez may face an uphill battle to match his 2014 workload, as the front office found a veteran shortstop capable of holding the job until Carlos Correa is ready for the call.

2014

Gonzalez opened the season in a timeshare with veteran shortstop Ronny Cedeno, but a hot-hitting April (.297/.388/.516) earned him enough starts (19) that it looked like he was separating himself from Cedeno as the clear-cut starter. When the calendar flipped to May, Gonzalez disappeared at the plate (.179/.188/.209) and was subsequently demoted to the minors when his struggles continued into June. Gonzalez was recalled later in the season, but he was relegated to a bench role with Jonathan Villar taking over as the Astros' starting shortstop. Should he return to that role, Gonzalez's fantasy upside is limited. That is, of course, assuming he makes the roster out of spring training, which is no guarantee.

2013

In his first taste of big league action, the 23-year-old Gonzalez found his way into 80 games, filling in for an injured Jed Lowrie and spelling Jose Altuve at second. His numbers were far from overwhelming, but it looks like Gonzalez could be a decent role player across the infield, or in a pinch, fill in for longer stretches at short or second. With the burden of being a Rule 5 pick lifted, Gonzalez can start the year in Triple-A if need be. Even if he doesn't break camp with the team, he will likely wind up coming off the bench for the Astros at some point this season.
