Astros | Josh Fields records save

Wed, 23 Apr 2014 07:13:29 -0700

Houston Astros RP Josh Fields recorded the save Tuesday, April 22.

Fantasy Tip: This is interesting because Chad Qualls blew a 3-0 lead April 19. Qualls pitched a perfect inning Monday night, but he only threw 12 pitches. He should have been available. Fields has 11 strikeouts in nine innings, a 2.00 ERA and a 0.89 WHIP. If he's available, pick him up as he could be trending toward more save chances.

Astros | Scott Feldman heading to DL

Mon, 21 Apr 2014 13:29:41 -0700

Houston Astros SP Scott Feldman (biceps) will be place on the 15-day disabled list Tuesday, April 22, with biceps tendonitis. SP Collin McHugh will be called up to take his spot in the starting rotation.

Fantasy Tip: McHugh can be ignored everywhere unless you are desperate for innings in a deep AL-only league. Reserve Feldman and wait for his return. His injury makes it realistic that he'll be able to return when eligible.

Astros | Jon Singleton to stay in minors for time being

Thu, 17 Apr 2014 10:20:50 -0700

Houston Astros 1B Jon Singleton isn't close to joining the big league club, according to general manager Jeff Luhnow. Singleton went 3-for-4 with a double, triple and home run with Triple-A Oklahoma City Wednesday, April 16, and is batting .358 with a .460 on-base percentage, five home runs and 18 RBIs in 13 games. "We're happy that Singleton is off to a good start," Luhnow said. "He does not have the Triple-A track record that Springer has yet. We feel he needs to develop that track record. We're always going to be in a position where our fans want our top prospects to come up here sooner than we think they're ready to come up here."

Fantasy Tip: Singleton owners were hoping he'd be next after fellow prospect George Springer got the call this week. That won't be the case for now, but Singleton is still worth stashing in mixed leagues, because if he keeps raking like he is now, Houston will find a spot for him sooner rather than later.

Astros | Brad Peacock to start Sunday

Wed, 16 Apr 2014 14:07:11 -0700

Houston Astros SP Brad Peacock will receive the start against the Oakland Athletics Sunday, April 20.

Fantasy Tip: Peacock's outing Sunday will probably determine if he'll receive another shot in the rotation. He's attractive for AL-only leaguers with perhaps the most upside of the team's current options to replace Lucas Harrell.

Wed, 16 Apr 2014 13:28:30 -0700

Houston Astros OF George Springer is hitting second in the lineup Wednesday, April 16, in his season debut.

Fantasy Tip: Springer is a five-tool talent that can make an immediate impact for fantasy squads. Start him immediately if you were lucky to pick him up.
