Houston Astros news, rumors and injuries
Sun, 05 Jul 2015 18:16:08 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Correa ($5,100, 10.2% of cap) has been the total package at the plate since being called up, and until the league figures out how to slow down Correa, he should be a staple of lineups at FantasyScore.
Sun, 05 Jul 2015 18:05:02 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Altuve ($5,400, 10.8% of cap) continues to own one of the steadiest bats in the league, and he has scored 14 runs and stolen seven bases during his current hitting streak. He deserves everyday consideration at FantasyScore.
Sun, 05 Jul 2015 08:14:19 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Marisnick ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) returns after missing time while on the disabled list. Owners on FantasyScore may want to see Marisnick play in a game or two before considering him an option.
Sun, 05 Jul 2015 08:04:42 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Rasmus ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) may not be in the lineup because the team is facing a left-handed pitcher. Gattis ($4,800, 9.6% of cap) has picked up at least one hit in nine of his last 10 games and has eight RBI in that span. Owners on FantasyScore could consider using Gattis in their lineup.

Houston Astros 2B Jose Altuve will serve as the designated hitter against Boston Red Sox SP Eduardo Rodriguez Sunday, July 5, and is batting first in the lineup. SS Marwin Gonzalez will start at second base and is batting seventh in the lineup.
Fantasy Tip: Altuve ($5,400, 10.8% of cap) is receiving a day off from the field but remains in the lineup. He has at least one hit in each of his last 12 games and should be a starting option on FantasyScore. Gonzalez ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) has had a decent season at the plate, but owners should be able to find better options to use.
Sat, 04 Jul 2015 14:34:27 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Marisnick ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) will have plenty of space for playing time with George Springer (wrist) out, but monitor his progress before using him on FantasyScore.
Sat, 04 Jul 2015 13:43:35 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Altuve ($5,400, 10.8% of cap) is an everyday option on FantasyScore.
Sat, 04 Jul 2015 09:40:05 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Presley picked up two hits and one RBI in his season debut Friday, July 3, and is back in the lineup. Owners should wait a few games before considering Presley for their lineups.
Sat, 04 Jul 2015 09:34:03 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Castro ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) likely is resting Saturday and should return soon. Conger ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) is hitting .230 in limited playing time this season and owners on FantasyScore should be able to find other options to use.
Sat, 04 Jul 2015 09:23:42 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Carter ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) should return to the lineup in the near future. Singleton ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) drove in three runs in his last game but is hitting .188 since being recalled and is not a great option.
Sat, 04 Jul 2015 09:06:35 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Rasmus ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) has missed the last six games because of a skin infection. He has a solid month of June with a .268 batting average, two home runs and nine RBI. Owners may want to skip Rasmus for the time being since he has missed close to a week and his timing could be off initially.
Sat, 04 Jul 2015 07:22:31 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Altuve ($5,400, 10.8% of cap) has picked up at least one hit in each of his last 11 games and has recorded seven RBI in that span. Altuve should be a nightly starting option for owners on FantasyScore.
Fri, 03 Jul 2015 15:11:17 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Expect Lowrie ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) to enter into some kind of rotation with Luis Valbuena ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) and Carlos Correa ($5,100, 10.2% of cap). However, it is likely Lowrie and Correa receive the majority of playing time down the stretch, with the Astros working Lowrie back into the mix cautiously initially.
Fri, 03 Jul 2015 15:07:07 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Marisnick ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) stands to grab everyday at-bats when he returns with George Springer (wrist) on the disabled list. Marisnick has a power-speed profile, but it has been hindered by his .245 batting average and .283 on-base percentage. There is still lots of upside for the 24-year-old outfielder, though.
Fri, 03 Jul 2015 13:58:14 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Rasmus ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) has missed the last five games but could return soon. He posted a .268 batting average in June and recorded nine RBIs, but owners on FantasyScore may want to see him play in a few games before using him.
