Yankees' Marwin Gonzalez: Homers in win
Gonzalez went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Monday's win over the Rangers.
Gonzalez took Jonathan Hernandez deep for a solo shot in the top of the eighth inning, extending the Yankees' lead to 2-0. The homer was his sixth of the season and third since Sept. 5. Gonzalez is now batting .182 with six home runs, 17 RBI, 20 runs and three stolen bases over 84 games with the Yankees this year.... See More ... See Less
Yankees' Marwin Gonzalez: Starting Sunday
Gonzalez (head) is starting at third base and batting eighth Sunday versus the Red Sox.
Gonzalez will start for the second time in the past three games after he missed some time after he was hit in the head by an errant throw last weekend. The 33-year-old has a .147/.256/.324 slash line through 14 contests in September.... See More ... See Less
Yankees' Marwin Gonzalez: Errant throw hits head
Gonzalez exited Saturday's game against the Brewers after a throw from the catcher to the pitcher during his at-bat hit him in the head, Bryan Hoch of MLB.com reports.
It's been a rough couple days for the veteran utility man, who also exited Friday's game early due to dizziness. This time around, Brewers catcher Victor Caratini inadvertently struck him in the side of the head while attempting to throw the ball back to Brandon Woodruff. It's unclear if Gonzalez is dealing with a concussion, but the Yankees were evidently concerned enough to remove him from the game.... See More ... See Less
Yankees' Marwin Gonzalez: Starting Saturday
Gonzalez (illness) is starting Saturday's game against the Brewers.
Gonzalez exited Friday's matchup against the Brewers but will start at first base and bat ninth a day later. Over his last four games, he's gone 3-for-14 with a home run, three RBI and two runs.... See More ... See Less
Yankees' Marwin Gonzalez: Departs with illness
Gonzalez was removed from Friday's game in Milwaukee due to an illness.
Gonzalez went 1-for-3 with an RBI and a strikeout before being forced from the contest. The veteran utility man should be considered day-to-day with the ailment.... See More ... See Less
Yankees' Marwin Gonzalez: Seeing regular work at first base
Gonzalez will start at first base and bat seventh in Wednesday's game against the Red Sox, Pete Caldera of The Bergen Record reports.
With Anthony Rizzo (head) and DJ LeMahieu (toe) recently joining Matt Carpenter (foot) on the injured list and with the Yankees having removed Ronald Guzman from the 40-man roster, Gonzalez is the last man standing on the 28-man roster who's capable of playing first base. He'll stick in the lineup for the seventh straight game, even though he's gone 3-for-22 while getting on base at a .208 clip over the past six contests.... See More ... See Less
Yankees' Marwin Gonzalez: Mashes fifth home run
Gonzalez went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in Tuesday's 7-6 extra-inning victory over the Red Sox.
Gonzalez crushed a 2-0 fastball from Nick Pivetta 410 feet to right field for his fifth home run of the season. However, he went hitless in the rest of his at-bats, which is indicative of his season thus far. The utility man is still slashing a lowly .194/.267/.335 line and will likely continue hitting at the bottom of the lineup when he plays until he can string a few more hits together.... See More ...

Yankees' Marwin Gonzalez: Activated by Yankees
Gonzalez (personal) was reinstated from the paternity list Thursday.
Gonzalez spent a few days away from the team following the birth of his child, but he'll be available for the Yankees for Friday's series opener against the Rays. The 33-year-old has had sporadic playing time for the Yankees in recent weeks.... See More ... See Less

Yankees' Marwin Gonzalez: On bench again
Gonzalez is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Mariners, Pete Caldera of The Bergen Record reports.
Gonzalez is on the bench for the sixth game in a row and doesn't look as though he'll have a much clearer path to playing time even after the Yankees moved Joey Gallo to the Dodgers on Tuesday. Gallo had already fallen into a reserve role for the Yankees, with Matt Carpenter having taken on increased duties in the corner outfield alongside the likes of Andrew Benintendi, Aaron Hicks and Aaron Judge. Gonzalez will likely see his opportunities take a further hit once Giancarlo Stanton (Achilles) and trade-deadline pickup Harrison Bader (foot) make their returns from the injured list....

Yankees' Marwin Gonzalez: Clubs third homer
Gonzalez went 2-for-3 with a solo home run during Tuesday's 2-1 win over the A's.
The veteran utility man's second-inning solo shot proved to the the difference for New York, as Oakland scratched across a run during the ninth inning to cut the deficit to one run. Gonzalez went without a homer in his first 34 games of the season, but in his past eight contests he's gone 7-for-21 with three long balls, two doubles, five RBI and four runs scored.... See More ...

Yankees' Marwin Gonzalez: Hits two-run homer
Gonzalez went 2-for-4 with a double, a two-run home run, two runs scored and two RBI in a 5-4 loss to the Rays on Tuesday.
Gonzalez had a good night at the plate and his home run off Colin Poche brought the Yankees to within a run in the top of the ninth. He now has two home runs and seven RBI on the year. Gonzalez is a bench player whose share of playing time is limited over the long term, but he could continue to see action while Isiah Kiner-Falefa is day-to-day with a hamstring issue....

Yankees' Marwin Gonzalez: Makes fourth straight start
Gonzalez will start in left field and bat eighth in Tuesday's game against the Rays.
Gonzalez will stick in the lineup for the fourth game in a row, this time filling in for a resting Aaron Judge. In the previous two contests, Gonzalez had started at shortstop while Isiah Kiner-Falefa (hamstring) was sidelined. Gleyber Torres will cover shortstop Tuesday with Kiner-Falefa still out of the lineup, so Gonzalez could still have an avenue to playing time Wednesday when Judge checks back into the starting nine....

Yankees' Marwin Gonzalez: Hits first homer as Yankee
Gonzalez went 2-for-4 with a solo home run Sunday in a loss to the Blue Jays.
Gonzalez joined the party that is the homer-happy Yankees offense, swatting his first long ball in his 35th game with the club. His sixth-inning solo shot gave New York a temporary 8-3 lead, but Toronto stormed back to erase that deficit by the end of the seventh frame. Gonzalez is slashing .243/.305/.351 on the campaign and has primarily filled a utility bench role.... See More ... See Less
Yankees' Marwin Gonzalez: Returns to bench role
Gonzalez is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Rays.
Before taking a seat in Saturday's 3-1 loss, Gonzalez had made seven consecutive starts at either third base or in left field, going a collective 4-for-22 at the dish. Even though the Yankees are down two lineup regulars in Josh Donaldson (shoulder) and Giancarlo Stanton (ankle), Gonzalez still looks like he might be limited to a part-time role. Gleyber Torres has resurfaced as an everyday player in the infield while Donaldson is on the shelf, and Miguel Andujar will pick up his sixth consecutive start in the outfield as a replacement for Stanton....

Yankees' Marwin Gonzalez: Gets third straight start
Gonzalez will start at third base and bat ninth in Monday's game against the Orioles.
After getting two straight starts in left field to close out the weekend series with the White Sox while Joey Gallo was out with an illness that later resulted in him being placed on the COVID-19-related injured list, Gonzalez will shift to the infield for the Yankees' series opener with Baltimore. Third base opened up for Gonzalez with both DJ LeMahieu and Josh Donaldson heading to the bench, but both players are likely just getting routine maintenance following Sunday's doubleheader. Left field still looks to be Gonzalez's main path to regular playing time while Gallo is on the shelf.... See More ... See Less
Yankees' Marwin Gonzalez: Knocks two doubles Tuesday
Gonzalez went 2-for-4 with a pair of doubles, a run and an RBI in Tuesday's 9-1 victory against the Blue Jays.
Gonzalez featured in a big six-run seventh inning for the Yankees, driving in a run with a double and later coming around to score. This was his first multi-hit performance of the season, though that's understandable since most of his appearances thus far have come off the bench. Gonzalez is slashing .308/.333/.538 with four runs and three RBI across 15 plate appearances. Three of his four hits have gone for doubles.... See More ... See Less
Yankees' Marwin Gonzalez: Makes Opening Day roster
The Yankees selected Gonzalez's contract Thursday.
As expected, Gonzalez has made the Yankees' Opening Day roster as the team's top utility man. Though Gonzalez has seen most of his big-league action as an infielder, he could see most of his initial opportunities in the outfield, given that the Yankees have all of Anthony Rizzo, DJ LeMahieu, Josh Donaldson, Isiah Kiner-Falefa and Gleyber Torres on hand as infield options....
