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.

Updating a previous report, Houston Astros C Jason Castro (armpit) was sidelined again Wednesday, July 9, against the Texas Rangers, but he was feeling good enough to play. Manager Bo Porter decided to give him one more game. "The treatments and the anti-inflammatories have really been doing what they're supposed to, so it looks like hopefully It's behind us and I'm going to hit on the field today. I hit in the cage already and it even felt better than it did (Tuesday)," Castro said. "I'm pretty happy about that and should be fine moving forward."
