    Description: The Tigers have released shortstop Alex Gonzalez.
    Insight: Gonzalez went from hitting a walk-off single on Opening Day to off the team in three weeks. The 37-year-old hit just .167. Andrew Romine will take over the starting shortstop job.
     
    4/4/2014 11:08:00 AM
    Description: Tigers shortstop Alex Gonzalez was to get Thursday afternoon off (rained out) and will still get a day off on Friday with Andrew Romine starting at shortstop for Detroit.
    Insight: Gonzalez went 3-for-8 over the first two games with a pair of RBI. He's no Jose Iglesias and fantasy owners should probably look elsewhere for shortstop help as his last fantasy-worthy season was 2010.
     
    4/3/2014 10:32:00 AM
    Description: Tigers shortstop Alex Gonzalez will get Thursday afternoon off and Andrew Romine will start at shortstop for Detroit.
    Insight: Gonzalez went 3-for-8 over the first two games with a pair of RBI. He's no Jose Iglesias and fantasy owners should probably look elsewhere for shortstop help as his last fantasy-worthy season was 2010.
     
    3/31/2014 4:29:00 PM
    Description: Tigers shortstop Alex Gonzalez couldn't have asked for a better debut Monday against Kansas City.
    Insight: Gonzalez tied the game with a triple in the seventh before winning it in the ninth on a walkoff single. The 37-year-old was acquired in a trade with Milwaukee only a week ago.
     
    3/24/2014 8:14:00 PM
    Description: The Tigers traded for infielder Alex Gonzalez on Tuesday. SOURCE: Dan Connolly, Baltimore Sun
    Insight: Baltimore received Steve Lombardozzi in exchange. Gonzalez (.246 AVG in 5,746 big league at bats) won't completely make up for the loss of Jose Iglesias (stress fracture) but at least it's a start.
     
    6/3/2013 8:27:00 PM
    Description: Milwaukee released infielder Alex Gonzalez on Monday.
    Insight: The move gave the Brewers an open roster spot, which they quickly filled by trading for Braves third baseman Juan Francisco. Gonzalez hasn't had a good season offensively (.177, 1 HR, 8 RBI in 41 games) but he's still a capable fielder with the ability to play almost anywhere in the infield. He shouldn't have much trouble finding a new team.
     
    3/10/2013 9:07:00 AM
    Description: With Corey Hart and Mat Gamel both out with knee injuries, Alex Gonzalez will be the Opening Day starter at first base despite never playing anywhere other than shortstop. SOURCE: Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel
    Insight: Gonzalez is coming off a knee injury of his own, a torn ACL that ended his 2012 season after just 81 at-bats. He isn't much of a fantasy option at shortstop so gaining first base eligibility won't change his value at all.
     
    5/17/2012 3:23:00 PM
    Description: Alex Gonzalez had surgery to repair his torn ACL on Thursday.
    Insight: Gonzalez will need the rest of the season to recover from this devastating injury. He finished the 2012 campaign with 4 HRs, 15 RBIs and a .259 average in 81 at bats for the Brewers.
     
    5/7/2012 3:25:00 PM
    Description: Alex Gonzalez has been diagnosed with a torn ACL after he had an MRI on Monday.
    Insight: Gonzalez won't have surgery yet, as he'll undergo a week of treatment to see how the ligament responds. Either way, don't count on him playing again this season.
     
    5/5/2012 9:47:00 PM
    Description: Alex Gonzalez has been placed on the 15-day disabled list after injuring his knee in Saturday's game against San Francisco.
    Insight: Cesar Izturis (.190, 0 HR, 1 RBI) will take over as Milwaukee's starting shortstop while Gonzalez is out.
     
    5/5/2012 5:09:00 PM
    Description: Alex Gonzalez injured his right ankle Saturday against the Giants and was replaced by Cesar Izturis in the second inning.
    Insight: Gonzalez (.259, 4 HR, 15 RBIs) suffered the injury while sliding into second base. Gonzalez's bat will be tough for Milwaukee to replace, especially given how depleted their roster already is from recent injuries to Mat Gamel and Ryan Braun.
     
    4/19/2012 11:19:00 AM
    Description: Alex Gonzalez has been lethal in his career against Dodgers starter Aaron Harang. The Brewers shortstop is batting .636 in 11 at bats against the L.A. righthander.
    Insight: Three of his seven hits have been for extra bases. Gonzalez (0-3 in his return to the Milwaukee lineup on Wednesday) also has 6 RBIs against Harang.
     
    4/17/2012 7:15:00 PM
    Description: Alex Gonzalez will not be in the Brewers starting lineup Tuesday night.
    Insight: Gonzalez, who has missed the Brewers past few games to see the birth of his child, was expected to play tonight but instead he has been given an extra day off. We'd be shocked if Gonzalez (.214, 2 HRs, 6 RBIs) isn't in the lineup on Wednesday.
     
    4/17/2012 3:02:00 PM
    Description: Milwaukee shortstop Alex Gonzalez has returned from paternity leave that saw him miss the weekend's games.
    Insight: The 35-year-old is batting .214 with two homers and six RBI over the first eight games this season.
     
    4/17/2011 6:46:00 AM
    Description: Braves SS Alex Gonzalez hit 2 homers in yesterday's win over the Mets.
    Insight: Gonzalez has hit in 7 of his last 8 games and is now batting .255 and he should stay in that range all season. He does have 20+ homer potential but he has never hit 20 HR's a year on a consistent basis. Use him in NL-only leagues now but keep an eye on him in mixed leagues if you did not land one of the top tier shortstops.
     
    10/15/2010 4:55:00 AM
    Description: The Braves intend to pick up Alex Gonzalez's option and make him their starting SS next year. SOURCE: DAVID O'BRIEN ON TWITTER
    Insight: Not a surprise after the type of year that he had. However, his power numbers dropped in Atlanta and no one should expect 20 homers from him in 2011.
     
    10/6/2010 8:03:00 AM
    Description: Gonzalez went 1-for-5 with a run scored on Sunday against the Phillies.
    Insight: Gonzalez struggled down the stretch with only two hits in his final 32 at-bats. He ends the year batting .250 with 23 homers and a career-high 88 RBI. (RapidDraft.com)
     
    9/26/2010 2:02:00 PM
    Description: Gonzalez went 1-for-3 with a home run, three RBI and a run scored on Saturday against the Nationals.
    Insight: Gonzalez hit his 23rd home run of the season and now has 88 RBI on the year. (RapidDraft.com)
     
    9/19/2010 10:00:00 PM
    Description: Gonzalez went 2-for-5 with two RBI on Sunday against the Mets.
    Insight: Gonzalez has four hits and four RBI over his past two games as he now has 85 RBI on the year. (RapidDraft.com)
     
    9/19/2010 3:01:00 PM
    Description: Gonzalez went 2-for-3 with two doubles, two RBI and a walk on Saturday against the Mets.
    Insight: Gonzalez broke out of an 0-for-12 slump as he now has 40 doubles and 84 RBI on the year. (RapidDraft.com)
