Sat, 04 Jul 2015 09:34:03 -0700

Fantasy Tip: Castro ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) likely is resting Saturday and should return soon. Conger ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) is hitting .230 in limited playing time this season and owners on FantasyScore should be able to find other options to use.

Fantasy Tip: Conger ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) should be avoided at FantasyScore, because he has just nine hits in 50 at-bats (.180) against southpaws this season from the right side of the plate.

Astros | Jason Castro returns to action

Sat, 27 Jun 2015 11:22:27 -0700

Houston Astros C Jason Castro is back in the starting lineup against New York Yankees SP Masahiro Tanaka Saturday, June 27, batting ninth.

Fantasy Tip: Castro ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) returns to action after receiving a day off Friday, June 26. He has not fared well this month, hitting just .184 in 49 at-bats with two home runs and four RBIs. He should only be considered for FantasyScore usage if you need a low-end catcher for salary cap relief.

Astros | Jason Castro resting Friday

Fri, 26 Jun 2015 16:05:19 -0700

Houston Astros C Jason Castro is not in the starting lineup Friday, June 26. C Hank Conger draws the start and is hitting ninth against New York Yankees SP Nathan Eovaldi.

Fantasy Tip: Conger ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) will save you plenty of cap room for the rest of your FantasyScore roster. He's never a very attractive daily option, but he could pay off as a deep sleeper tonight in the Bronx. Conger hits better from the left side against righties (.303/.410/.545) with two of his four home runs, and he has the short porch in right field tonight in the Bronx.

Astros | Jason Castro resting

Thu, 04 Jun 2015 09:22:05 -0700

Houston Astros C Jason Castro is not in the starting lineup against a left-handed pitcher Thursday, June 4. C Hank Conger is starting behind the dish and hitting seventh in the batting order against Baltimore Orioles SP Wei-Yin Chen.

Fantasy Tip: Castro returned to the lineup last night after dealing with a knee injury, so he should be alright moving forward. Conger ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is only a .188 (16-for-85) hitter in his career from the right side of the plate, so you should ignore him.

Astros | Jason Castro uncertain for Wednesday

Tue, 02 Jun 2015 21:22:02 -0700

Updating a previous report, Houston Astros C Jason Castro (knee) was out of the lineup Tuesday, June 2, against the Baltimore Orioles due to a bruised right knee. Manager A.J. Hinch said Castro was sore but OK and he wasn't sure if he would start Wednesday, June 3.

Fantasy Tip: FantasyScore players will want to avoid Castro ($2,900; or 5.8% of cap) until he can officially return and prove his health in a full game without any setbacks.
