Houston Astros OF Dexter Fowler (intercostal) is set to be activated from the disabled list Wednesday, Aug. 13.
Fantasy Tip: Jake Marisnick is expected to move to right field when Fowler comes back, with Robbie Grossman starting mostly in left field. The setback for George Springer (quadriceps) will give Grossman a little longer shelf life in the Houston outfield.

Houston Astros OF Chris Carter (illness) was a late scratch to the lineup Wednesday, July 30, because he fell ill hours before game time. He "vomited a couple times" and was given medication. Carter has hit .295 with eight home runs and 19 RBIs this month. OF Robbie Grossman started in right field in his place and homered in the game.

Houston Astros OF George Springer (quadriceps) was placed on the 15-day disabled list with a left quadriceps strain. In a corresponding move, 1B/OF Marc Krauss was recalled from Triple-A Oklahoma City.
Fantasy Tip: It's retroactive to Sunday, July 20, but this could be a slow recovery and potentially affect his SB potential when he gets back. This cements AL-only asset Enrique Hernandez in center field. Deep mixed leaguers can give Robbie Grossman a try if they can only find an alternative via Houston. Krauss has some pop, and Hernandez has risen through the farm ranks the last few years, but neither is a recommended grab in mixed games.
