Astros | Jake Marisnick sitting out

Fri, 22 May 2015 13:07:39 -0700

Houston Astros OF Jake Marisnick is not in the starting lineup Friday, May 22. OF Preston Tucker will take his place in the lineup and is starting in left field.

Fantasy Tip: Marisnick ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) has been on a bit of a cold streak and is likely receiving a day off. Tucker ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) has played well in his limited time with the team and may be a cheaper starting option if owners are looking to save some money.

Astros | Marwin Gonzalez sitting vs. Detroit

Thu, 21 May 2015 07:58:11 -0700

Houston Astros SS Marwin Gonzalez is not in the starting lineup against the Detroit Tigers Thursday, May 21. SS Jonathan Villar is batting seventh and starting at shortstop Thursday.

Fantasy Tip: Facing tough-lefty David Price, Villar ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) should be viewed as nothing more than a desperation flier. Make sure to avoid Gonzalez ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) in all fantasy formats Thursday, too.

Astros | Houston leads in home runs

Wed, 20 May 2015 10:54:03 -0700

The Houston Astros lead the majors in home runs with 60 this season, but they are last in the league with a .229 batting average.

Fantasy Tip: FantasyScore pitchers going up against Houston are typically risk-reward plays because of this fact, and also because of how much Houston swings and misses. Jesse Hahn ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) is a weak play today after his recent poor outings and because of the fact he's only striking out 5.8 hitters per nine innings in 2015.

Astros | Dallas Keuchel has been dominant

Wed, 20 May 2015 10:52:16 -0700

Houston Astros SP Dallas Keuchel is 7-0 with a 1.73 ERA in his last 10 starts, and his seven-game winning streak is the longest active streak by a starting pitcher.

Fantasy Tip: Actually, Keuchel ($7,700, 15.4% of cap) has slipped up a bit recently, allowing four earned runs in each of his last two starts. It's further indication of how dominant he's been this year, though, in his other games. Despite the recent hiccups, Keuchel is a strong FantasyScore option against an Oakland Athletics team that struggles against left-handed hurlers.

Astros | Marwin Gonzalez resting

Tue, 19 May 2015 16:25:44 -0700

Houston Astros SS Marwin Gonzalez is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, May 19. SS Jonathan Villar is starting at the 6 and hitting ninth in the batting order against Oakland Athletics SP Sonny Gray.

Fantasy Tip: Villar ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) should be of no interest to FantasyScore gamers this evening against Gray.

Astros | Jake Marisnick sitting out Tuesday

Tue, 19 May 2015 16:21:35 -0700

Houston Astros OF Jake Marisnick is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, May 19. OF Preston Tucker is starting in left field and hitting fifth in the batting order against Oakland Athletics SP Sonny Gray, while OF Colby Rasmus shifts to center field.

Fantasy Tip: Tucker ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) has done well in limited time for the Astros this year, but he should be considered a weak play at FantasyScore this evening against Gray, who leads the American League in ERA (1.61) entering the game.

Astros | Lance McCullers will start Saturday

Tue, 19 May 2015 15:52:38 -0700

Houston Astros SP Lance McCullers will start Saturday, May 23, against the Detroit Tigers.

Fantasy Tip: McCullers ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) allowed one earned in four and two-third innings pitched in his first start of the season. McCullers struck out five and walked three, while giving up three hits. The Tigers lineup is much more dangerous than that of the Oakland Athletics, so FantasyScore owners should leave McCullers alone for his second start of the season.

Astros | Jake Marisnick has cooled off

Tue, 19 May 2015 15:26:05 -0700

Houston Astros OF Jake Marisnick is batting .156 (7-for-45) in his last 13 games after a hot start to the season.

Fantasy Tip: Marisnick ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) is still hitting .292 (33-for-113) with three home runs, 15 RBI and nine stolen bases on the year. He's also out of the starting lineup Tuesday, so you'll need to make sure to avoid him at FantasyScore.

Astros | Lance McCullers has decent first outing

Tue, 19 May 2015 04:13:56 -0700

Houston Astros SP Lance McCullers allowed one run and three hits with five strikeouts but walked three in 4 2/3 innings in his first career start Monday, May 18, against the Oakland Athletics.

Fantasy Tip: It wasn't a bad first start for McCullers ($3,300, 6.6% of cap), who was brought up to pitch for the American League's hottest team. Wait and see how he fares against tougher teams than the Oakland Athletics before making a judgment on whether to start him.

Astros | Jose Altuve likes facing Oakland

Mon, 18 May 2015 15:41:30 -0700

Houston Astros 2B Jose Altuve has hit safely in 29 straight games against the Oakland Athletics, and he's batting .353 in 44 career games against the A's.

Fantasy Tip: Altuve ($5,700, 11.4% of cap) remains one of the best pure hitters in all of baseball, and he's currently 18-for-43 (.419) with one of his five home runs and a 1.068 OPS against lefties in 2015. Altuve will continue to be a strong option for FantasyScore gamers tonight.

Astros | Luis Valbuena sitting Monday

Mon, 18 May 2015 13:51:24 -0700

Houston Astros 3B Luis Valbuena is not in the starting lineup against a left-handed hurler Monday, May 18. SS Jonathan Villar is starting at the hot corner and hitting second in the batting order against Oakland Athletics SP Drew Pomeranz.

Fantasy Tip: Villar ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) is hitting .238 (10-for-42) with no home runs and four RBI in 19 games for Houston. He's just 4-for-20 (.200) with three RBI batting right-handed against lefties this year, too. Villar isn't the best shortstop option you have this evening in daily games.

Astros | Colby Rasmus out against southpaw

Mon, 18 May 2015 13:47:08 -0700

Houston Astros OF Colby Rasmus is not in the starting lineup against a left-handed pitcher Monday, May 18. OF Preston Tucker is starting in left field and hitting fifth in the batting order against Oakland Athletics SP Drew Pomeranz.

Fantasy Tip: Tucker ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) also swings from the left side, and Pomeranz is allowing lefties to hit for a slash line of only .152/.171/.152 in 2015. That would make Tucker a weak option at FantasyScore Monday night. Look elsewhere.

Astros | Jason Castro not playing Sunday

Sun, 17 May 2015 08:30:09 -0700

Houston Astros C Jason Castro is not in the starting lineup Sunday, May 17. C Hank Conger will be the starting catcher for the game.

Fantasy Tip: Castro ($2,900, 5.8% of cap) has picked up at least one hit in 12 of his last 14 games but is sitting out. Conger ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) has not done much in his limited playing time this season and could be avoided by owners on FantasyScore.

Astros | Marwin Gonzalez not in the lineup

Sun, 17 May 2015 08:18:08 -0700

Houston Astros SS Marwin Gonzalez is not in the starting lineup Sunday, May 17. SS Jonathan Villar will be the starting shortstop for the Astros.

Fantasy Tip: Gonzalez ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) has played in six of the last seven games and likely is receiving a day off. Villar ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) is only his playing better in May but is still hitting only .205 this season and is not a great option on FantasyScore.

Astros | Carlos Correa collects three more hits

Sun, 17 May 2015 06:24:52 -0700

Houston Astros SS prospect Carlos Correa hit two doubles and one single Saturday, May 16, as Class AAA Fresno (Calif.) topped El Paso (Tex.). Correa has hit safely in each of his five games at Class AAA, including four doubles.

Fantasy Tip: Correa seems to be on the fast track to the major leagues. Owners with any type of roster space need to stash Correa now, in preparation for a re-call to the Astros.
