Astros | George Springer being called up

Wed, 16 Apr 2014 05:12:29 -0700

The Houston Astros will recall OF George Springer from Triple-A Oklahoma City before the game Wednesday, April 16.

Fantasy Tip: Springer was hitting .353 with three homers and nine RBIs at Triple-A and was likely drafted in a lot of leagues. He hit .303 with 37 homers, 108 RBIs and 45 steals between Double-A Corpus Christi and Triple-A Oklahoma last season. He needs to be picked up immediately in all formats.

Astros | Dexter Fowler targets Wednesday

Tue, 08 Apr 2014 18:36:01 -0700

Houston Astros OF Dexter Fowler (illness) might be able to return to the starting lineup Wednesday, April 9. He was expected to go through pre-game activities Tuesday, April 8, and he was to take batting practice and try running. "Today's the first day I feel like I have some strength to do anything," Fowler said. "I think (returning Wednesday) is what we're looking at. Hopefully I'll be back in there. It's just dependent on how today goes."

Fantasy Tip: For fantasy owners in leagues which allow daily moves, and those playing daily fantasy, it's a good idea to shy away from Fowler in his first game back just to see how he responds. He might be a little bit weak, and could have some rust to knock off.

Astros | Dexter Fowler still out

Mon, 07 Apr 2014 14:32:37 -0700

Houston Astros OF Dexter Fowler (stomach) remained out of the lineup for the fourth straight game Monday, April 7, due to a stomach virus. Fowler is feeling better but is still very weak. Fowler has lost some weight, but isn't sure how much. Manager Bo Porter is unsure when Fowler will be able to return to the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: With Fowler having already missed four games and likely needing a few more to get back into playing shape, it's very possible that he could land on the disabled list in the next couple of days. They can backdate the move to last week, and he could only miss a week of action. It all depends on how much weight he has lost, which he'll need to regain.
