Gonzalez doubled a career-high three times while scoring and driving in a run in Thursday's 5-3 win over the Braves.

Gonzalez appears locked in at the plate right now, as he's submitted three-hit showings in three of his last four starts, with five of those knocks going for extra bases. Don't let the outfielder's .254/.310/.435 season line fool you; when healthy, Gonzalez has proven he's capable of far more. With no known injury concerns lurking in the background at the moment, Gonzalez makes for a strong acquisition target for fantasy owners in the second half.

Gonzalez went 5-for-5 in Friday's win over the Giants, finishing only a home run shy of the cycle while scoring three times and driving in a run.

After sitting out the previous three games with a hand injury, Gonzalez announced his return to the lineup with authority, as he turned in his best performance of the season. With a .325/.357/.649 slash line in June that includes six homers and 15 RBI, Gonzalez seems to have finally gotten comfortable at the plate after a rough start to the year. With the Rockies still sitting seven games under .500 even with their core of star hitters heating up, it might be time for the team to consider dealing Gonzalez while he still remains healthy and can yield a maximum return.
