2019 FANTASY BASEBALL BREAKING NEWS: TWINS BRING IN MARWIN GONZALEZ ON TWO-YEAR DEAL

Supreme utility man Marwin Gonzalez is one of those classic fantasy baseball hitters who yield a major portion of their value based almost solely on qualifying for a high number of positions and it was likely this versatility that led the Minnesota Twins to bring him in on a two-year deal on Friday.  In terms of that eligibility, Gonzalez will head into the 2019 season carrying qualification at first base, second base, shortstop, and the outfield and so he serves as a tremendous bench weapon that you can plug in all over the field when needed.  Gonzalez is not too shabby with the bat either as he comes off a 2018 where he hit 16 homers drove in 68 batters, and scored 61 runs.  There are clear limitations though such as Gonzalez losing almost all of his previous average speed (just 2 steals last season) and his .247 average was way down from the last year's mark of .303.  Still, the reason you are drafting Gonzalez is because of his massive eligibility haul and that won't change this season in his new home.
2019 PROJECTION:  .255 15 HR 74 RBI 65 R 4 SB
