Houston Astros OF Trevor Crowe (shoulder) is beginning a minor league rehab assignment Thursday, July 25.

The Houston Astros placed OF Trevor Crowe (shoulder) on the 15-day disabled list with a sprained AC joint in his right shoulder Thursday, June 20, and recalled 1B Marc Krauss from Triple-A Oklahoma City in a corresponding move.
Fantasy Tip: Tough break for Crowe, who was just recently named the starter in right field. Brandon Barnes figures to see more playing time as a result. Pick him up for outfield depth in AL-only universes.

The Houston Astros activated OF Justin Maxwell (hand) from the 15-day disabled list Tuesday, June 18, and optioned OF Jimmy Paredes to the minors in a corresponding move.
Fantasy Tip: Maxwell probably won't have an everyday role in the outfield now that he's back. Trevor Crowe supplanted Paredes for a starting job in the outfield and can be considered in AL-only leagues.

Houston Astros OF Trevor Crowe has supplanted Jimmy Paredes as the team's starting right fielder, according to manager Bo Porter. "He does a great job and makes things happen," Porter said. "You look at the batting average, and I'm not a batting average guy. He's an above-average defender and gives us great flexibility because he's a switch-hitter. He's just a baseball player and understands the game. We'll continue to find opportunities for him."

Houston Astros OF Chris Carter will remain an everyday player, but he'll likely spend more time at first base and designated hitter now, according to general manager Jeff Luhnow.
Fantasy Tip: With the Astros' outfield roster shuffle Monday, J.D. Martinez should receive regular playing time now that he's back from the disabled list, and he's a target for AL-only leaguers. Robbie Grossman, Jimmy Paredes and Trevor Crowe will likely battle for playing time for the other outfield spots, along with Brandon Barnes, if Carter isn't starting in the outfield. Grossman, Paredes and Crowe are all switch-hitters, too, so the playing time could be very fluid, and Bo Porter may choose to ride the hot hand.

The Houston Astros activated OF J.D. Martinez (knee) from the disabled list and recalled OFs Trevor Crowe and Jimmy Paredes from the minors Monday, May 6. In corresponding moves, OFs Rick Ankiel and Fernando Martinez were designated for assignment.
Fantasy Tip: Houston clearly wasn't going to put up with Ankiel's all-or-nothing style of offensive production, which usually resulted more in nothing than anything. It's unclear exactly how Crowe, Paredes and J.D. Martinez will be utilized in the outfield alongside Brandon Barnes and Chris Carter. Martinez probably has the most upside of the three, though, but he's not worth spending any money on just yet in mixed leagues.
