Houston Astros OF Justin Maxwell (hand) has started lightly swinging a fungo bat as he recovers from a fractured left hand.
Fantasy Tip: Maxwell still needs significant time to come back from his injury. In the meantime, the Astros have drastically changed their outfield alignment, beginning when they released Rick Ankiel. Jimmy Paredes, Robbie Grossman and J.D. Martinez have earned consistent playing time, and depending on how they're playing when Maxwell returns, he may find himself without regular PT.

Houston Astros manager Bo Porter said before the game Monday, May 13, that OFs Robbie Grossman, J.D. Martinez and Jimmy Paredes will be his three starting outfielders. Porter said he wants to give the trio consistent playing time to determine if they're capable of being everyday players.
Fantasy Tip: Despite the regular playing time, only Martinez is worth a look in anything more than the deepest of NL-only fantasy leagues.

Houston Astros OF Chris Carter will remain an everyday player, but he'll likely spend more time at first base and designated hitter now, according to general manager Jeff Luhnow.
Fantasy Tip: With the Astros' outfield roster shuffle Monday, J.D. Martinez should receive regular playing time now that he's back from the disabled list, and he's a target for AL-only leaguers. Robbie Grossman, Jimmy Paredes and Trevor Crowe will likely battle for playing time for the other outfield spots, along with Brandon Barnes, if Carter isn't starting in the outfield. Grossman, Paredes and Crowe are all switch-hitters, too, so the playing time could be very fluid, and Bo Porter may choose to ride the hot hand.
