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.

WATCH: Marwin Gonzalez tries, but fails, to fake out Astros catcher

Marwin Gonzalez tried to pull a fast one on his former team, but Astros catcher Korey Lee wasn’t falling for it. With Gonzalez at the plate with a runner on in the top of the second inning, a pitch by Cristian Javier was spiked into the ground and bounced off of Lee and into foul ground on the third base side. But Gonzalez pointed over behind the first base line as the runner advanced to second, and could have potentially advanced to third had Lee not ignored Gonzalez’s fakeout and wisely headed for the third base side of the infield.

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.

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.
