The Houston Astros placed OF Dexter Fowler (intercostal) on the 15-day disabled list with a right intercostal strain Tuesday, July 1. The move is retroactive to June 27.
Fantasy Tip: L.J. Hoes and Alex Presley should see plenty of playing time in the Houston outfield now, but don't forget about prospect Domingo Santana, who was just recalled from the minors. Santana has the most upside and should warrant regular PT with Fowler on the shelf. Santana doesn't have much speed, but the raw power will be appealing in AL-only leagues.
