Astros | Alex Bregman struggles in debut

Mon, 25 Jul 2016 23:40:55 -0700

Houston Astros 3B Alex Bregman went hitless in four at-bats with a pair of strikeouts Monday, July 25, against the New York Yankees in his major league debut.

Fantasy Tip: Bregman is expected to see plenty of playing time, and he is worth scooping up in all fantasy formats if available off the waiver wire. He has a ton of potential, and you shouldn't be dissuaded by using him because of Monday's shaky debut.

Astros | Marwin Gonzalez rests ankle

Mon, 25 Jul 2016 23:40:27 -0700

Houston Astros INF Marwin Gonzalez (ankle) missed the game Monday, July 25, against the New York Yankees due to the sprained left ankle he suffered Sunday, July 24. "He's doing OK," manager A.J. Hinch said. "We are keeping him out of some baseball activities to monitor his ankle. We'll give him the day off, but I would really like him to play tomorrow if he's capable."

Fantasy Tip: Gonzalez should be reserved in all AL-only fantasy leagues which allow daily moves and DFS play until he can officially return and prove his health in a full game without any setbacks.

Astros | Dallas Keuchel solid in setback

Mon, 25 Jul 2016 23:39:53 -0700

Houston Astros SP Dallas Keuchel allowed two earned runs, six hits and no walks with five walks over 7 2/3 innings in a loss Monday, July 25, against the New York Yankees. He threw 74 of his 105 pitches for strikes.

Fantasy Tip: Keuchel has started to show signs of life lately after an awful start to the season. He has seven straight quality starts, and at least five strikeouts in each of his past four outings. He has re-emerged as a must-start in all fantasy formats.

Astros | Alex Bregman batting sixth against Yankees

Mon, 25 Jul 2016 13:35:51 -0700

Houston Astros 3B Alex Bregman is starting at the hot corner and batting sixth against New York Yankees SP Michael Pineda Monday, July 25.

Fantasy Tip: Bregman is going to be given every opportunity to carve out a big role through the end of the season. He's worth owning in all fantasy formats because the sky's the limit for the blossoming star. He might not play every day initially, but it also might not take long for him to hit his way into a full-time gig.

Astros | Colby Rasmus sitting vs. Yankees

Mon, 25 Jul 2016 13:28:20 -0700

Houston Astros OF Colby Rasmus is not in the starting lineup Monday, July 25. OF Preston Tucker is starting in left field and batting second against New York Yankees SP Michael Pineda Monday.

Fantasy Tip: Rasmus hit seven home runs in April and has just four since, as he's struggled to the point of finding himself out of the lineup frequently. He isn't worth a roster spot outside of cavernous mixed and AL-only leagues. Tucker is 3-for-8 with three extra-base hits since being recalled from the minors, and he's a potential flier in daily contests Monday.

Astros | Yulieski Gurriel eyeing mid-August debut

Mon, 25 Jul 2016 12:57:34 -0700

Houston Astros 3B Yulieski Gurriel will hopefully obtain his work visa this week and be promoted to the majors in mid-August, the team announced Monday, July 25. Gurriel is expected to see time at both third and first base with Houston.

Fantasy Tip: The timeline will provide Gurriel owners with approximately six or seven weeks of production, but it is still unknown just how often he'll play. He's a speculative grab in mixed leagues, but likely won't warrant starting status outside of cavernous mixed and AL-only leagues initially. Stay tuned for updates.

Astros | Jose Altuve drives in six

Sun, 24 Jul 2016 18:31:12 -0700

Houston Astros 2B Jose Altuve went 3-for-5 with two home runs, six RBI and two runs scored in a 13-3 win over the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim Sunday, July 24.

Fantasy Tip: Altuve has hit safely in every game since the All-Star break, raising his average to .360. He is worth every penny in daily formats, and he is easily the best fantasy option at his position.

Astros | Marwin Gonzalez sprains ankle

Sun, 24 Jul 2016 18:26:22 -0700

Houston Astros 1B Marwin Gonzalez exited against the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim Sunday, July 24, with a sprained left ankle, and is considered day-to-day.

Fantasy Tip: It doesn't sound like Gonzalez should miss much time, but he isn't a must-own player in any format to begin with. Cut him loose if you can't afford to lose the at-bats.

Astros | Alex Bregman to receive call-up Monday

Sun, 24 Jul 2016 15:05:08 -0700

Houston Astros minor-league 2B/3B/OF Alex Bregman is expected to receive a promotion from Class AAA Fresno on Monday, July 25. INF Danny Worth has already been designated for assignment to clear room on the 40-man roster for the organization's top prospect.

Fantasy Tip: Bregman has been tearing up the minors for the bulk of 2016, slashing .297/.415/.559 with 14 home runs and 46 RBI for Class AA Corpus Christi before being promoted to Fresno. In 18 games with the Grizzlies, last year's first-round pick is slashing .333/.373/.641 with six home runs and 15 RBI. Although he doesn't have an obvious positional opening at the moment, he has seen time at shortstop, third base and left field in the minors this season. Owners are advised to scoop him up immediately.

Astros | Jason Castro still out

Sun, 24 Jul 2016 10:10:27 -0700

Houston Astros C Jason Castro (hand) is not in the starting lineup against Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Tim Lincecum Sunday, July 24. C Evan Gattis will start at catcher and is batting sixth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Gattis is hitting .357 with two home runs and four RBI over the last seven days and should be an attractive starting option in daily fantasy leagues.

Astros | George Springer sets table nicely

Sat, 23 Jul 2016 21:23:18 -0700

Houston Astros OF George Springer went 2-for-3 with a double, two walks, a run scored and an RBI Saturday, July 23, against the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim. He was also caught stealing for the seventh time this season.

Fantasy Tip: Springer did a great job setting the table at the top of the Houston lineup. Overall he has just a .260 batting average, and he isn't your prototypical leadoff hitter with just six stolen bases. But he is a solid source of power and a must-start fantasy option across most formats.

Astros | Collin McHugh posts quality start, win

Sat, 23 Jul 2016 21:21:11 -0700

Houston Astros SP Collin McHugh allowed two earned runs, six hits and no walks with six strikeouts over six innings in a win Saturday, July 23, against the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim. He threw 69 of his 99 pitches for strikes in the quality start.

Fantasy Tip: McHugh has won back-to-back starts for the first time since winning three in a row from April 27-May 8. He has three straight quality starts, and six in the past seven outings to re-emerge as a must-start in most fantasy formats and DFS play.

Astros | Evan Gattis back with a bang

Sat, 23 Jul 2016 21:20:09 -0700

Houston Astros C-OF Evan Gattis (hand) returned to the lineup Saturday, July 23, against the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim after missing the game Friday, July 22, due to a bruised right hand. He had two home runs and four RBIs in the return. It was his sixth-career multi-homer game.

Fantasy Tip: It appears safe to get Gattis back into the active fantasy lineup in all seasonal leagues, and he can be trusted again in DFS for his power potential. He did not show any lingering effects of his hand injury in this one.

Astros | Evan Gattis draws a start

Sat, 23 Jul 2016 14:04:03 -0700

Houston Astros C Evan Gattis is in the starting lineup and will bat eighth against Los Angeles Angels SP Jered Weaver on Saturday, July 23.

Fantasy Tip: Gattis isn't the defender Jason Castro is being the plate and has seen his usual designated hitter role filled by a number of players lately, in part due to his .218 average. He's still worth starting in most 12-team-or-larger leagues due to his power, but owners need to recognize the at-bats might not be there like they once were.
