Description: Astros infielder Marwin Gonzalez is 7-for-12 (.583) with a couple of extra-base hits versis Seattle starter Hisashi Iwakuma.
Insight: Gonzalez is batting .268 with six homers, 22 RBI, 31 runs and a .709 OPS in limited playing time (265 at-bats). This appears to be a nice spot for a one-time flier.

Description: With Jed Lowrie slated to miss time with a sprained thumb, Marwin Gonzalez is the only shortstop left on Houston's major league roster.
Insight: Gonzalez is hitting .115 this spring and only has 60 games of experience at the Triple-A level. Turning to Gonzalez is obviously not what the Astros were hoping would happen, but it looks like their only option right now. Gonzalez has almost no fantasy value.
