The Houston Astros placed OF Dexter Fowler (intercostal) on the 15-day disabled list with a right intercostal strain Tuesday, July 1. The move is retroactive to June 27.
Fantasy Tip: L.J. Hoes and Alex Presley should see plenty of playing time in the Houston outfield now, but don't forget about prospect Domingo Santana, who was just recalled from the minors. Santana has the most upside and should warrant regular PT with Fowler on the shelf. Santana doesn't have much speed, but the raw power will be appealing in AL-only leagues.

The Houston Astros are expected to call up OF Domingo Santana, INF Enrique Hernandez and RP Kevin Chapman Tuesday, July 1.
Fantasy Tip: Santana is the most fantasy relevant of the bunch as he's hitting .304 with 13 homers and 51 RBIs at Triple-A. Add him in AL-only leagues, and he's on the fringe in mixed leagues. Hernandez is hitting .337 with eight homers and 31 RBIs. His fantasy ceiling isn't as high, but he needs added in AL-only leagues as well. Chapman could eventually be a closer candidate, but he doesn't have much value right now.

The Houston Astros are likely to leave OF Domingo Santana in the minors for the time being despite a .305 batting average at Triple-A Oklahoma City. Santana has 94 strikeouts in 350 plate appearances so the team is looking for a bit more consistency. He could be called up in September because Santana is on the 40-man roster.

Scouts rave about Houston Astros OF Domingo Santana, who was the fourth piece in the deal for OF Hunter Pence. One scout said he has a chance to be comparable to Baltimore Orioles DH Vladimir Guerrero. "He's still crude right now. But he has the highest ceiling imaginable," the scout said. "You put him in there with the other guys they got, and this has a chance to be like the Bartolo Colon deal was for Cleveland."
