Saw a projected depth chart on ESPN that had him starting in LF over Seth Smith and Ian Stewart. Looking at his rookie season in what's far from a hitter's park in OAK, Gonzalez hit 22 doubles in just 302 AB. While he only hit 4 HR, these doubles could translate to a lot of pop at Coors Field with another year of development for the 23-year old.
Is this a guy that I should be keeping my eye on waiver-wire wise or even spending a late-round flier on? With Tavares gone, I think he's got a shot at the leadoff spot...
Crap in one hand and an ESPN depth chart in the either and... Well, you get the picture. Gonzalez will definitely be someone to watch in the spring -- where he's playing, where he's batting, etc. But as of right now, he's a flier in NL-Only leagues as a potential sleeper and he's undrafted in mixed leagues. In the spring that could change.
