The Houston Astros have promoted prospects SP Jarred Cosart and SS Jonathan Villar recently. Top prospects OF George Springer and 1B Jonathan Singleton remain at Triple-A Oklahoma City, but they are expected to join the Astros during the final 65 games of a season devoted to player development and evaluation.
Fantasy Tip: For now, Springer and Singleton are only worth roster spots in the deepest of long-term fantasy keeper leagues, and they'll be worth adding in AL-only leagues if and when they are summoned.

Houston Astros SP Jarred Cosart took a no-hitter into seventh inning Friday, July 12, against the Tampa Bay Rays. If that isn't impressive enough, it was his major league debut. He ended up allowing just two hits and no runs through eight-plus innings to pick up the win. He struck out four batters on 96 pitches, throwing 55 for strikes. After the game, he was still optioned to Triple-A Oklahoma City.
Fantasy Tip: Cosart was fabulous, and his fantasy ownership is sure to jump even though he was demoted. Those in AL-only leagues who need pitching help will want him on their roster, as he'll be back sooner rather than later. And if you're in a long-term keeper format, believe manager Bo Porter when he says Cosart has the stuff to be an elite pitcher. Cosart showed his impressive high-90's fastball with a big, looping curve to keep the Rays off balance.

Houston Astros SP Jarred Cosart will make his major league debut Friday, July 12, against the Tampa Bay Rays.
Fantasy Tip: This matchup isn't a promising one considering how well Tampa has hit this month and for most of the season, and we're not certain whether this is a long-term deal and if he'll stay up post-break. Still, he may wind up an intriguing add for deep-mixed players, and he should be picked up immediately in all AL-only games for his potential, if you can snag him on the cheap. It appears Houston is starting to dip into their top prospects. Expect more to follow in the coming weeks.
