Astros | Chad Qualls staying put

Thu, 31 Jul 2014 08:57:37 -0700

Houston Astros RP Chad Qualls is likely to stay put at the upcoming non-waiver trade deadline. They've told teams that he's unavailable.

Fantasy Tip: If Qualls were to leave town, Jose Veras or another less enticing reliever or relievers would slide into the saves picture.

Astros | Dallas Keuchel, Jarred Cosart market updates

Thu, 31 Jul 2014 08:21:27 -0700

Houston Astros SP Dallas Keuchel has been taken off the trade market, but the club is "very, very busy" with calls regarding interest in Jarred Cosart.

Fantasy Tip: Keuchel has turned things around after his wrist injury and should be a solid fantasy arm the rest of the season. Cosart's inconsistency doesn't take away the intrigue in his heavy fastball; moving to a new club could make him a deep-league pickup.

Astros | Alex Presley taking swings

Wed, 30 Jul 2014 09:04:48 -0700

Houston Astros OF Alex Presley (oblique) has been taking swings in a batting cage while hitting off a tee over the last three days. Presley said he's exerting about 60 percent effort.

Fantasy Tip: Robbie Grossman has become marginally useful in deep leagues while Presley has been out. The latter's return, probably in the next few weeks, won't help either in terms of playing time.

Wed, 30 Jul 2014 00:05:21 -0700

Astros | George Springer takes BP

Tue, 29 Jul 2014 17:17:33 -0700

Updating a previous report, Houston Astros OF George Springer (quadriceps) took batting practice on the field Tuesday, July 29, for the first time since going on the 15-day disabled list July 20. "It's big to be out here and just to get some swings," Springer said. Barring any setbacks, he is expected to increase his activities over the next two days. He is eligible to come off the DL Monday, Aug. 4.

Fantasy Tip: Springer is eligible to return Monday, but that doesn't necessarily mean he will. Generally, it's a good idea to see your fantasy player return and play at least one full game without any setbacks before activating him. In this case, it might be another full week for fantasy owners to use him unless you like to gamble a bit.

Astros | George Springer progressing

Tue, 29 Jul 2014 14:16:40 -0700

Houston Astros OF George Springer (quadriceps) is progressing nicely and is doing baseball activities, according to manager Bo Porter.

Fantasy Tip: Springer will likely need to go on a short rehab assignment once he's ready, which could come at some point next week.

Astros | Trying to get L.J. Hoes to drive ball

Mon, 28 Jul 2014 18:10:33 -0700

Houston Astros OF L.J. Hoes worked with hitting coach John Mallee in the batting cage on the field Monday, July 28, as the hitting coach is trying to get Hoes to stay behind the ball and drive it more. "(He) gets a little to his front side and his posture, his head is more forward as opposed to the center of his body or a little behind," Mallee said. "Trying to get him to lead out with his hip, and that allows him to be direct (to) the ball and also get the barrel under his hands at contact and get left to the ball."

Astros | Jon Singleton works to shorten swing

Mon, 28 Jul 2014 18:08:20 -0700

Houston Astros 1B Jon Singleton worked closely with hitting coach John Mallee Monday, July 28, in the batting cages. Mallee said the results were "absolutely amazing" and said now it's a matter of Singleton trusting it enough to use in games. "I'm trying to get the big-muscle-bodyness out of his swing and trying to get him more direct to the ball, shorten his path," Mallee said. "He's been overswinging and hitting long. We came out and did some tee work on the field and some flips and some high-velocity sport pitch to where the ball is on him almost at the same reaction time as it is in the game."

Fantasy Tip: Singleton has plenty of power, but he has posted a poor .178 average in 163 at-bats since his recall. He is a promising talent, and a must-have in long-term keeper fantasy formats, but right now he is not helping anyone in re-draft leagues.
