Astros | Injury updates
Houston Astros OF Fernando Martinez (oblique) is scheduled to play in at least one game with Triple-A Oklahoma City Thursday, April 18, and he could return from the disabled list soon. RP Travis Blackley (shoulder) will begin a rehab assignment with Oklahoma City Thursday, as well.
Fantasy Tip: Martinez should be on the radar of AL-only leaguers. The Astros have plenty of inexperience and inconsistency in their current stable of outfielders, so Martinez could receive an opportunity upon his return and run with it. However, he needs to make more consistent contact to deliver on his power skills.
