Carlos Gonzalez rips fourth home run Wednesday

Carlos Gonzalez went 3-for-5 with a home run and three RBIs in Wednesdays win over the Phillies. He is now slashing .252 / .321 / .387 through 43 games.

Fantasy Impact

Gonzalez had a really rough start to the season but has been really turning it around recently. Just two weeks ago, he was hitting .188. But after slashing .392/.458/.608 over his last 13 games, his batting average is up to a more respectable .252. He's also 8-for-14 over his last three games, so the window to buy low on Gonzalez is either closing or is already shut.

Carlos Gonzalez reaches base twice in win over Phillies Tuesday

Carlos Gonzalez went 2-for-4 with a run scored in Tuesday's win over the Phillies. He is currently batting .241 on the year.

Fantasy Impact

Don't look now, but Gonzalez is turning things around at the plate. In the last two weeks, he has raised his batting average more than 50 points, from .188 to .241. He also has hits in 10 of his last 11 games, including five multiple-hit games. It appears that the reports of his demise were a bit premature. If it isn't too late to buy low on Gonzalez in your league, it will be soon.

Carlos Gonzalez 1-for-7 in Thursday's double header

Carlos Gonzalez was 0-for-4 and 1-for-3 in Thursday's double header against the Twins. The 0-for-4 snapped a modest five-game hit streak.

Fantasy Impact

It's no longer early, but fantasy owners still shouldn't worry about Carlos Gonzalez. He will carry any team when he gets hot, and based on his career numbers, it's only a matter of time before that happens.

Carlos Gonzalez doubles, drives in another run Friday

Carlos Gonzalez went 2-for-4 with a double and an RBI in Friday's loss to the Dodgers. Gonzalez now has doubled in consecutive games and his 4-for-8 over the last two days.

Fantasy Impact

Gonzalez is finally showing signs of life after what has been a dreadful slump through his first 32 games of the season. It probably isn't safe to start Gonzalez in weekly lineups just yet, but he is worth keeping an eye on now that he has his batting average heading in the right direction.

Carlos Gonzalez doubles, drives in three Thursday

Carlos Gonzalez went 2-for-4 with a double and three RBIs in Colorado's 10-7 win over the Dodgers Thursday night. He is now hitting .198 on the year.

Fantasy Impact

Thursday night was a bright spot in what has otherwise been a dreadful start to the season for Gonzalez. He entered Thursday with a .188 batting average and was showing no signs of getting out of what has been a long slump. He owns a career batting average of .290 and has a proven track record over the course of 11 seasons, so the hope is that he can turn things around. Maybe Thursday night was the first step in the right direction.
