2016

2015

Following an elite prospect at a premium position, it's easy to be overlooked. Gonzalez replaced Francisco Lindor at Double-A Akron in 2014, more than holding his own over 31 games following the promotion with a .357/.390/.473 line over 129 at-bats. Heralded as a good defender with a projectable body and bat, Gonzalez's future as a member of the Tribe is at a different position. For now, he will continue to play short as a way of maximizing his long-term value to other clubs. Gonzalez's most useful rotisserie asset is speed, as he went 21-for-28 on the basepaths between Carolina (High-A) and Akron last season. At 23, he will likely spend a good share of 2015 back at Akron, but he may end up replacing Lindor as the organization's Triple-A shortstop at some point during the upcoming season.
