Astros | Jason Castro sitting vs. Tigers

Thu, 21 May 2015 07:46:56 -0700

Houston Astros C Jason Castro is not in the starting lineup against the Detroit Tigers Thursday, May 21. C Hank Conger is starting behind the plate and batting eighth Thursday.

Fantasy Tip: Castro ($2,900, 5.8% of cap) has struggled mightily this season, but he has hit three home runs over his past seven games, so maybe an uptick in production is coming. Make sure to avoid him in all fantasy formats Thursday. Conger ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) doesn't warrant attention in any fantasy formats, as he is just 5-for-32 this season.

Astros | Hank Conger starting at catcher

Sat, 16 May 2015 14:52:36 -0700

Houston Astros C Hank Conger will start behind the plate Saturday, May 16, against the Toronto Blue Jays. The switch-hitting Conger will take on Blue Jays SP Marco Estrada.

Fantasy Tip: Conger ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) hits marginally better against right-handed pitching, both in 2015 and historically. With an excellent matchup against the struggling Estrada, FantasyScore owners can include Conger as a cheap piece in any Astros stack.

Astros | Hank Conger draws another start

Mon, 04 May 2015 14:15:02 -0700

Houston Astros C Hank Conger is starting behind the dish and hitting eighth in the batting order against Texas Rangers SP Ross Detwiler Monday, May 4. C Jason Castro is sitting on the bench.

Fantasy Tip: Conger ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) has two home runs and three RBI on the year while hitting .263 (5-for-19). He could continue to see more time against left-handed pitchers with Castro struggling offensively. Against Detwiler tonight, Conger could be a value play after homering over the weekend.

Astros | Hank Conger to face Mariners

Sat, 02 May 2015 15:16:03 -0700

Houston Astros C Hank Conger draws into the lineup Saturday, May 2, against the Seattle Mariners and right-hander Taijuan Walker. Conger is a switch-hitter and will give C Jason Castro the night off.

Fantasy Tip: Conger ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) has one home run this season through only 21 plate appearances. Being a switch-hitter doesn't give Conger much of an extra boost as he's only a career .224-hitter against righties. That said, all 18 of Conger's career home runs have come off right-handers, so there is some potential for upside for FantasyScore owners deciding to punt the catcher position.

Astros | Jason Castro out Wednesday

Wed, 29 Apr 2015 11:04:07 -0700

Houston Astros C Jason Castro is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, April 29. C Hank Conger receives the start and is hitting eighth in the batting order against San Diego Padres SP Andrew Cashner.

Fantasy Tip: Conger ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) has very little offensive upside, especially while playing at hitter-friendly Petco Park against a serviceable pitcher. Avoid him at FantasyScore today.

Fri, 24 Apr 2015 15:55:26 -0700

Houston Astros C Jason Castro is not in the starting lineup against the Oakland Athletics Friday, April 24. C Hank Conger is starting behind the plate and batting eighth Friday.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to remove Castro from your fantasy lineups Friday. Conger ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is nothing more than a desparation play for FantasyScore contests Friday. He has a single hit through 12 plate appearances for the season, and he has a career .190 batting average against left-handed pitchers.

Houston Astros C Jason Castro is not in the starting lineup against Oakland Athletics left-handed SP Scott Kazmir Monday, April 13. C Hank Conger is starting behind the plate and batting eighth in the batting order.

Fantasy Tip: Conger ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is a switch hitter, but he hit just .188 with one RBI in 16 at-bats against lefties in 2014. He should be avoided in all daily games tonight.

Astros | Jason Castro not in lineup

Thu, 09 Apr 2015 09:57:07 -0700

Houston Astros C Jason Castro is not in the starting lineup against Cleveland Indians SP Trevor Bauer Thursday, April 9. C Hank Conger is receiving the start behind the dish and is hitting eighth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Conger ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) is a cheap catching option Thursday, but he's a weak daily play at FantasyScore. Conger hit just .223 against right-handed pitchers and .221 overall in 231 at-bats in 2014 with the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim.
