News: Gonzalez is not in the lineup Thursday against the Padres. Impact: It looks to be just a day of rest for Gonzalez with the outfielder in the midst of a 3-for-24 slump since his three-hit performance against the Giants last Wednesday. Corey Dickerson will spell him in left field and bat third.(RotoWire, )

News: Gonzalez extended his season-opening hit streak to 10 games by hitting a two-run homer in a 6-5 loss to San Francisco on Friday. Impact: Gonzalez is batting .375 (15 for 40) with eight extra-base hits - including four homers - and 13 RBIs. He's among the major league leaders with an OPS of 1.232.(STATS, 2:14pm)
Sat. Apr 12, 2014
News: Gonzalez jacked his fourth home run of the season Friday, a two-run job off the Giants' Madison Bumgarner. Impact: Gonzalez's blast gave the Rockies a brief 3-0 lead in the third inning, before Bumgarner hit a grand slam of his own an inning later to salt the game away for the Giants. Still, it's nice to see Gonzalez retain his power, after choosing not to undergo surgery on the injured thumb that troubled him for most of the second half of last season. His four home runs and 13 RBI are tops on the Rockies.(RotoWire, )

Tue. Apr 8, 2014
News: Gonzalez is not in the starting lineup Tuesday against the White Sox, Thomas Harding of reports. Impact: Gonzalez has hit safely in each of his first eight games to begin the season (.355 average, three home runs), but will get a breather Tuesday. It seems the Rockies are just being mindful of Gonzalez's workload, as they are Troy Tulowitzki's, so expect Gonzalez back in the lineup Wednesday. Brandon Barnes will man left and bat second Tuesday against left-hander Jose Quintana.(RotoWire, )
Mon. Apr 7, 2014
News: Gonzalez went 2-for-5 with a solo home run, his third of the season, in Monday's 8-1 win over the White Sox. Impact: Gonzalez has opened the season with an eight-game hitting streak, getting off to a torrid start for the second year in a row. With star teammate Troy Tulowitzki also in a groove, the Rockies should be a nuisance for opposing pitchers.(RotoWire, )

Impact: Just a couple days after leaving a game early because of dizziness he was clearly at full speed for this one as the Rockies piled up a dozen runs.

Impact: Gonzalez was removed from Wednesday's game after feeling dizziness, but it appears there were no lingering issues, and he will be able to play Thursday as he anticipated.

Wed. Apr 2, 2014
News: Gonzalez believes that the dizziness he experienced on Wednesday was just caused by dehydration, and that he can play in Thursday's game, Troy Renck of the Denver Post reports. Impact: Gonzalez left Wednesday's game as a precaution, and he sounds confident that he'll be good to go for the rest of the week. He'll likely hit the liquids hard overnight to avoid a repeat of this situation.(RotoWire, )
Wed. Apr 2, 2014
News: Gonzalez left Wednesday's game against the Marlins as a precaution due to dizziness, Troy Renck of the Denver Post reports. Impact: Prior to exiting the game, Gonzalez doubled in a run, scored a run and walked in three at-bats. The team was quick to label his removal precautionary, but Gonzalez's status for Thursday's series finale is uncertain. Fantasy owners can take some comfort in knowing his removal had nothing to do with the finger that hindered him throughout most of last season.(RotoWire, )
