Erik Gonzalez with golden sombrero Sunday

Erik Gonzalez was 0-for-4 Sunday with four strikeouts in Sunday's 4-1 win over the Indians.

Fantasy Impact

Gonzalez has had some impact games for the Indians this year, but he belongs on the waiver wire until he shows some consistency and gets considerably more playing time.

Erik Gonzalez knocks in three runs Sunday

Erik Gonzalez hit two doubles in Sunday's win over the Tigers, driving in three runs. Hitting in the last spot in the order, Gonzalez still found ways to drive guys in. Ironically, he was stranded on both of his doubles, as the top of the Indians lineup did not get much going Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

Through 50 at-bats, Gonzalez is slashing .360/.396/.580. While this is a very small sample size, Gonzalez could be an under-the-radar play if he ever unseated Jason Kipnis at second base.

Erik Gonzalez wakes up Indians Thursday

Erik Gonzalez went off in the second game of a doubleheader Thursday against the Blue Jays, smoking two doubles and a single, which led to four RBI and two runs scored. The Indians pummeled the Blue Jays, 13-4.

Fantasy Impact

Gonzalez has found himself inserted into the lineup the past couple days, and he has done surprisingly well. He is 7-for-12 with four runs and four RBI in the past three games. If Jason Kipnis does not continue his hot streak, Gonzalez could take some playing time away from him at second base.

Erik Gonzalez hits first career home run on Thursday

SS Erik Gonzalez went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in the Indians' 12-5 win over the Dodgers on Thursday.

Fantasy Impact

With Jason Kipnis out of the lineup again with neck stiffness/spasms, Gonzalez got the start at second base. The former Top-10 prospect is hitting .286 over his 42 big league at-bats. Last season in Triple-A, Gonzalez slashed .296/.329/.450 with 11 home runs and 12 stolen bases. He has potential for value in dynasty leagues but he will struggle for regular playing time while the Indians have Jose Ramirez, Francisco Lindor and Jason Kipnis in their infield.

Erik Gonzalez gets first career RBI on Sunday

SS Erik Gonzalez went 2-for-3 with a run, double, and RBI in the Indians' 4-2 win over the White Sox on Sunday. He got the start at second base with Jason Kipnis given the day off.

Fantasy Impact

These represented the first career RBI and the first career extra-base hit for the Indians' former top-10 prospect. With Jason Kipnis, Francisco Lindor, and Jose Ramirez as fixtures in the infield, it is difficult for Gonzalez to get any starts. He has limited fantasy value until injuries open up more playing for the 25-year-old.
