Astros | Scott Feldman to throw sim game

Mon, 29 Jun 2015 22:17:02 -0700

Houston Astros SP Scott Feldman (knee) will throw a simulated game in Houston Tuesday, June 30, as he continues to work his way back from arthroscopic knee surgery.

Fantasy Tip: It's uncertain how Feldman fits into the team's plans when he does return, but FantasyScore players need not bother with him for at least a few weeks.

Astros | Jake Marisnick might begin rehab soon

Mon, 29 Jun 2015 22:16:18 -0700

Houston Astros OF Jake Marisnick (hamstring) is improving and might begin a minor-league rehab assignment soon. He is making his way back from a strained left hamstring.

Fantasy Tip: FantasyScore players will want to avoid Marisnick until he can officially return and prove his health in a game or two without any setbacks.

Astros | Colby Rasmus has skin infection

Mon, 29 Jun 2015 22:15:37 -0700

Houston Astros OF Colby Rasmus (illness) missed his third straight game Monday, June 29, against the Kansas City Royals. He is dealing with a skin infection on his left arm caused by an insect bite. Manager A.J. Hinch said Rasmus received intravenous antibiotics to try to eliminate the infection.

Fantasy Tip: Rasmus ($3,100; or 6.2% of cap) remains day to day. Avoid him in FantasyScore until he can officially return and prove his health.

Astros | Jed Lowrie making progress

Mon, 29 Jun 2015 16:23:18 -0700

Houston Astros SS Jed Lowrie (thumb) has progressed from swinging a wiffle ball bat to using a fungo as he tries to return after having surgery on his right thumb.

Fantasy Tip: Unfortunately for Lowrie ($3,300, 6.6% of cap), the shortstop of the future, Carlos Correa ($5,100, 10.2% of cap), is up in the big leagues and isn't going anywhere. The youngster looks right at home in the majors and is contributing for fantasy owners immediately. Lowrie won't be back until sometime after the All-Star break and is unlikely to have any impact at all for Houston. You can drop him in the majority of formats if you haven't already.

Astros | Colby Rasmus remains out

Mon, 29 Jun 2015 15:26:52 -0700

Houston Astros OF Colby Rasmus (illness) is not in the starting lineup against Kansas City Royals SP Joe Blanton Monday, June 29. OF George Springer will start in center field and is batting first, while OF Domingo Santana will start in right field and is batting eighth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Owners should monitor the situation to see when Rasmus ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) will be able to return to the lineup. Santana ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) has recorded at least one hit in four of his last five games has picked up six RBI this month. Santana could be a cheap outfield option, but owners on FantasyScore should be able to find a better option.

Astros | Evan Gattis out of the lineup

Mon, 29 Jun 2015 15:16:38 -0700

Houston Astros C Evan Gattis is not in the starting lineup against Kansas City Royals SP Joe Blanton Monday, June 29. 1B Jon Singleton will serve as the designated hitter and is batting sixth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Gattis ($4,700, 9.4% of cap) likely is receiving the day off and should return soon. Singleton ($2,900, 5.8% of cap) has gone 0-for-4 since being called up and is not a great option on FantasyScore at this point.

Astros | Carlos Correa continues hot start

Sun, 28 Jun 2015 15:43:39 -0700

Houston Astros SS Carlos Correa has nine doubles and five homers in just 20 games. He's the first player in franchise history to have nine doubles in his first 20 games and joins Rusty Staub, George Springer and Jeff Bagwell as the only players in Houston history to reach safely in at least 18 of their first 20 games.

Fantasy Tip: Correa ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) has been everything the Astros wanted and then some. He is a must-start in all FantasyScore and other formats.

Astros | Brett Oberholtzer sent down

Sun, 28 Jun 2015 10:44:00 -0700

Houston Astros SP Brett Oberholtzer was optioned to Class AAA Fresno Saturday, June 27.

Fantasy Tip: It's unclear who the Astros will use to replace Oberholtzer ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) in the starting rotation after he allowed six earned runs (two home runs) in just 1 1/3 innings against the New York Yankees Saturday. Oberholtzer should only be retained in the deepest of AL-only leagues.

Astros | Preston Tucker starting in LF

Sun, 28 Jun 2015 08:32:09 -0700

Houston Astros OF Preston Tucker will start in left field and hit seventh in the order Sunday, June 28, against the New York Yankees and RHP Michael Pineda. 1B Jon Singleton comes out of the lineup, 1B Chris Carter will start at first and C Evan Gattis will act as the designated hitter.

Fantasy Tip: Tucker ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) hasn't hit a home run since going yard in back-to-back days June 17 and 18. All four of Tucker's home runs this season have come against right-handed pitchers, but he also comes with the risk of posting a zero on FantasyScore, with a difficult matchup against Pineda.

Astros | Carlos Correa boosts average

Sat, 27 Jun 2015 17:42:44 -0700

Houston Astros SS Carlos Correa went 3-for-5 with a home run, a double, two RBI and a run scored in a 9-6 loss to the New York Yankees Saturday, June 27, raising his average to .301 on the year.

Fantasy Tip: Correa ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) has been the total package since being called up, showcasing a steady bat, power and speed. Pitchers may eventually adjust, but in the meantime, he makes a great mid-priced play at FantasyScore.

Astros | Chris Carter ends homer drought

Sat, 27 Jun 2015 17:39:03 -0700

Houston Astros 1B Chris Carter went 2-for-4 with a home run, a double, two RBI and two runs scored in a 9-6 loss to the New York Yankees Saturday, June 27.

Fantasy Tip: It was the first homer for Carter ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) in his last nine games, and while he has 13 on the year, he is also hitting just .200 with 101 strikeouts. Carter's power is legit, but trusting him at FantasyScore is going to burn you more times than it pays off.

Astros | Jason Castro returns to action

Sat, 27 Jun 2015 11:22:27 -0700

Houston Astros C Jason Castro is back in the starting lineup against New York Yankees SP Masahiro Tanaka Saturday, June 27, batting ninth.

Fantasy Tip: Castro ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) returns to action after receiving a day off Friday, June 26. He has not fared well this month, hitting just .184 in 49 at-bats with two home runs and four RBIs. He should only be considered for FantasyScore usage if you need a low-end catcher for salary cap relief.

Astros | Jon Singleton in lineup Saturday

Sat, 27 Jun 2015 10:34:25 -0700

Houston Astros 1B Jon Singleton is batting seventh as the designated hitter against New York Yankees SP Masahiro Tanaka Saturday, June 27. This will be his first appearance at the major league level this season.

Fantasy Tip: In 95 games last year, Singleton ($2,900, 5.8% of cap) demonstrated plenty of pop (13 home runs and 44 RBIs) but also struck out 134 times and hit just .168. He is a high-risk, high-reward FantasyScore option who should be added in all AL-only fantasy baseball leagues, as well as in deep mixed leagues if your team is lacking power.

Astros | Jason Castro resting Friday

Fri, 26 Jun 2015 16:05:19 -0700

Houston Astros C Jason Castro is not in the starting lineup Friday, June 26. C Hank Conger draws the start and is hitting ninth against New York Yankees SP Nathan Eovaldi.

Fantasy Tip: Conger ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) will save you plenty of cap room for the rest of your FantasyScore roster. He's never a very attractive daily option, but he could pay off as a deep sleeper tonight in the Bronx. Conger hits better from the left side against righties (.303/.410/.545) with two of his four home runs, and he has the short porch in right field tonight in the Bronx.

Astros | Chad Qualls has pinched nerve

Fri, 26 Jun 2015 14:08:28 -0700

Updating a previous report, Houston Astros RP Chad Qualls (neck) was put on the disabled list with a pinched nerve in his neck Friday, June 26. Qualls was 1-4 with four saves and a 5.11 ERA in 29 outings this year.

Fantasy Tip: It sounds as if this is an injury that could easily require more than the 15 days on the DL. Luke Gregerson remains the reliever to own for fantasy teams as Houston's closer, but both Pat Neshek and Josh Fields have pitched exceptionally well and can help owners with their pitching ratios in deeper leagues.
