Astros | Evan Gattis productive at plate

Sat, 30 Apr 2016 05:10:55 -0700

Houston Astros OF Evan Gattis went 2-for-4 with one home run and two RBI against the Oakland Athletics Friday, April 29.

Fantasy Tip: Gattis has been on a bit of a hot streak recently with seven hits and six RBI over the last four games. Gattis could be a solid option in daily fantasy leagues and some mixed leagues while he is producing at the plate.

Astros | Preston Tucker, Tyler White sitting

Wed, 27 Apr 2016 16:20:53 -0700

Houston Astros OF Preston Tucker and 1B Tyler White are not in the starting lineup Wednesday, April 27. OF Evan Gattis is serving as the designated hitter and is batting fifth, while INF Marwin Gonzalez is starting at first base and batting seventh against Seattle Mariners SP Hisashi Iwakuma.

Fantasy Tip: Gattis is off to a slow start (.222, 8-for-36, no homers) after hernia surgery in the spring, and he's a boom-or-bust candidate for daily lineups. Gonzalez has moderate power, but his fantasy upside is limited Wednesday hitting down in the order in a pitcher's park.

Astros | Preston Tucker the DH Tuesday

Tue, 26 Apr 2016 14:56:23 -0700

Houston Astros OF Preston Tucker is serving as the designated hitter and is batting fifth against Seattle Mariners SP Nathan Karns Tuesday, April 26. OF Evan Gattis will start on the bench.

Fantasy Tip: All 15 of Tucker's career home runs have come against right-handed pitchers, so this matchup should catch your attention Tuesday. Consider Tucker a nice buy as a potential daily value pick.

Astros | Preston Tucker, Jason Castro out

Mon, 25 Apr 2016 15:44:52 -0700

Houston Astros OF Preston Tucker and C Jason Castro are not in the starting lineup Monday, April 25. OF Evan Gattis is serving as the designated hitter and batting sixth, while C Erik Kratz is behind the plate and is hitting ninth against Seattle Mariners SP Taijuan Walker.

Fantasy Tip: Gattis is starting to see more of the starts as the DH over Tucker, which limits Tucker's value to cavernous mixed and AL-only leagues. Gattis is hitting only .212 in the early going and hasn't gone deep yet in 32 at-bats, so he's a risky play against the strong Walker Monday night. Kratz should be ignored everywhere.

Astros | Evan Gattis to start catching

Sun, 24 Apr 2016 14:16:19 -0700

Houston Astros C Evan Gattis will start catching games this season when the game itself is not on the line, according to manager A.J. Hinch.

Fantasy Tip: Hinch indicated Gattis would catch earlier this season, and the plan appears to be ntroducing Gattis to catching slowly and deliberately. No word yet on how this plan will impact Jason Castro owners, although Gattis definitely has the better bat and Castro would likely lose playing time. Be prepared to earn extra lineup flexibility with Gattis as well.

Astros | Evan Gattis out of lineup Saturday

Sat, 23 Apr 2016 10:27:52 -0700

Houston Astros DH/OF Evan Gattis is not in the starting lineup against Boston Red Sox SP Clay Buchholz Saturday, April 23. OF Preston Tucker is batting fifth and serving as the designated hitter.

Fantasy Tip: Tucker is batting .242 with two home runs and three RBI through 33 at-bats. View him as an inexpensive flier option in the outfield for daily fantasy leagues.

Astros | Evan Gattis in lineup against a righty

Fri, 22 Apr 2016 14:53:44 -0700

Houston Astros DH Evan Gattis is batting sixth against Boston Red Sox SP Steven Wright Friday, April 22.

Fantasy Tip: This is only the third start for Gattis against a right-handed hurler, as Preston Tucker has also been utilized as the designated hitter of late. Gattis is off to a 4-for-21 start with just a single extra-base hit, but he has topped 20 home runs in each of his first three seasons of the league, so remain patient with the slugger. He could reward on a speculative flier in daily contests Friday, too.

Astros | Evan Gattis not playing

Thu, 21 Apr 2016 14:29:16 -0700

Houston Astros OF Evan Gattis is not in the starting lineup Thursday, April 21. OF Preston Tucker is the designated hitter and is batting sixth against Texas Rangers SP A.J. Griffin.

Fantasy Tip: With Gattis off to a slow start (.200, 4-for-20) after starting the year late due to hernia surgery, he could continue splitting time at DH with Tucker. That'll limit Gattis' fantasy upside for the time being in standard mixed leagues. All 15 of Tucker's career homers have come against righties, and he makes for a nice sleeper pick in daily formats this evening.

Astros | Evan Gattis out to slow start

Tue, 19 Apr 2016 17:31:27 -0700

Houston Astros OF Evan Gattis is hitting just .167 since his return from injury, and he has not yet recorded an RBI, walk or extra-base hit.

Fantasy Tip: Gattis got out to a slow start last year also, so his owners should not be too concerned just yet, especially since it's only been 12 at-bats over four games. The former Atlanta Brave has clubbed more than 20 home runs in each of his three seasons in the league and owners should anticipate the same type of output at the end of the day in 2016.

Astros | Evan Gattis to resume catching?

Fri, 15 Apr 2016 17:54:34 -0700

Houston Astros OF/DH Evan Gattis has been working on catching drills for several months in the hopes of appearing behind the plate for the first time since the 2014 season, which would give manager A.J. Hinch greater lineup flexibility. "One of the things I've never understood is people thinking this is abnormal to have him catch," Hinch said. "He's a catcher. We just didn't catch him last season based on the fact we wanted to keep him healthy for 500, 600 plate appearances that he hadn't had while he was catching, and we had the liberty of having the DH. He's equipped to handle the position, but he hasn't done it in a year in a single game."

Fantasy Tip: Much of Gattis' value in previous years was tied to the fact that he provided a great deal of offense at the catching position, so this development is welcome news for fantasy owners. The 29-year-old hit .246 with 27 home runs and 88 RBI in 153 games last season and went 1-for-5 in his 2016 debut Thursday, April 14, after beginning the year on the disabled list while recovering from offseason hernia surgery.
