Astros | Probably will keep Chad Qualls

Thu, 24 Jul 2014 15:58:50 -0700

Houston Astros RP Chad Qualls probably won't be traded, according to general manager Jeff Luhnow. "I hesitate to use the word 'untouchable,' but he likes it here, he's comfortable here and he's pitching well," Luhnow said.

Fantasy Tip: Maybe he's a long-term investment for them, or they're waiting for the right deal and it hasn't come their way yet. Don't write off the possibility, but Qualls' owners have to like the increasing chances he remains in save chances during his big rebound season.

Astros | Dexter Fowler update

Thu, 24 Jul 2014 15:22:52 -0700

Houston Astros OF Dexter Fowler (intercostal) said he is feeling better every day Thursday, July 24, but he still does not have a timetable for his rehab. General Manager Jeff Luhnow expects Fowler to begin his rehab assignment sometime during the team's 10-game homestand, which beings Friday, July 25.

Fantasy Tip: Fowler justifies his injury-prone label annually and hasn't begun any baseball activities yet. When healthy he is a valuable asset in all formats, so consider adding him before the pack.

Astros | George Springer to DL

Wed, 23 Jul 2014 13:30:29 -0700

Houston Astros OF George Springer (quadriceps) was placed on the 15-day disabled list with a left quadriceps strain. In a corresponding move, 1B/OF Marc Krauss was recalled from Triple-A Oklahoma City.

Fantasy Tip: It's retroactive to Sunday, July 20, but this could be a slow recovery and potentially affect his SB potential when he gets back. This cements AL-only asset Enrique Hernandez in center field. Deep mixed leaguers can give Robbie Grossman a try if they can only find an alternative via Houston. Krauss has some pop, and Hernandez has risen through the farm ranks the last few years, but neither is a recommended grab in mixed games.

Astros | Dexter Fowler remains on DL

Tue, 22 Jul 2014 18:57:30 -0700

Houston Astros OF Dexter Fowler (ribs) remains on the 15-day disabled list due to his right intercostal strain. He missed his 20th straight game Tuesday, July 22. It is impossible for Fowler to reach 140 games played, the seventh of his eight full big league seasons he has failed to reach the mark. Manager Bo Porter and general manager Jeff Luhnow each indicated his timetable is unclear. Fowler is doing some exercises, but also resting and taking treatment and not doing any baseball activities yet.
