Erik Gonzalez taking a seat for Pirates versus Cubs

Pittsburgh Pirates shortstop Erik Gonzalez is out of the starting lineup in Monday's series opener against the Chicago Cubs.

What It Means:

Gonzalez hit an RBI double and drew a pair of intentional walks in Sunday's 7-5 win over Cincinnati Reds. He's just 4-for-24 (.167) through seven games. Kevin Newman is starting at shortstop for Pittsburgh on Monday afternoon.

numberFire's models expect Gonzalez to record a .266 batting average with 5 home runs, 29 RBI, 33 runs scored, and 4 steals over the remainder of the season.
