Hot off the Wire news, rumors and tips

Astros | Roster moves

The Houston Astros activated OF J.D. Martinez (knee) from the disabled list and recalled OFs Trevor Crowe and Jimmy Paredes from the minors Monday, May 6. In corresponding moves, OFs Rick Ankiel and Fernando Martinez were designated for assignment.

Fantasy Tip: Houston clearly wasn't going to put up with Ankiel's all-or-nothing style of offensive production, which usually resulted more in nothing than anything. It's unclear exactly how Crowe, Paredes and J.D. Martinez will be utilized in the outfield alongside Brandon Barnes and Chris Carter. Martinez probably has the most upside of the three, though, but he's not worth spending any money on just yet in mixed leagues.
