Astros | Colby Rasmus receives night off

Thu, 05 May 2016 13:40:14 -0700

Houston Astros OF Colby Rasmus (rest) is not in the starting lineup Thursday, May 5. OF Jake Marisnick is starting in his place in left field and batting ninth opposite Seattle Mariners SP Wade Miley.

Fantasy Tip: It'll be a standard night off for Houston's regular cleanup man. Owners shouldn't really consider his replacement, though, as Marisnick has just one hit thus far in 10 at-bats to begin the campaign. Evan Gattis is batting cleanup with Rasmus out of the lineup and could be a tempting option for daily formats.

Astros | Colby Rasmus snaps hitless skid

Wed, 04 May 2016 23:57:14 -0700

Houston Astros OF Colby Rasmus snapped an 0-for-13 skid with a run-scoring single Wednesday, May 4, against the Minnesota Twins.

Fantasy Tip: Rasmus belted seven homers with 19 RBIs, so don't give up on him in fantasy leagues just because of his recent hitless skid. He is a solid OF3 or utility fantasy option in most formats and DFS play.

Astros | Carlos Gomez remains sidelined

Sun, 01 May 2016 12:12:47 -0700

Houston Astros OF Carlos Gomez (rib cage) is not in the starting lineup against Oakland Athletics SP Rich Hill Sunday, May 1. OF Colby Rasmus will start in center field, while OF Preston Tucker will start in left field and is batting seventh in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Owners will need to monitor the situation to see if Gomez will need to be placed on the 15-day disabled list. Tucker has gone 2-for-11 in his last seven days but is not a strong starting candidate in most leagues.

Astros | Carlos Gomez out of lineup Saturday

Sat, 30 Apr 2016 11:08:46 -0700

Houston Astros OF Carlos Gomez is not in the starting lineup against Oakland Athletics SP Jesse Hahn Saturday, April 30. OF Colby Rasmus will bat cleanup and play center field, while OF Preston Tucker will bat seventh and start in left field.

Fantasy Tip: It is uncertain if Gomez's absence from the lineup is related to the wrist injury he suffered after being hit by a pitch earlier this week. He is batting just .213 with two RBI in 80 at-bats this season.

Astros | Colby Rasmus belts seventh homer

Sun, 24 Apr 2016 22:52:35 -0700

Houston Astros OF Colby Rasmus belted a game-tying two-run home run in the bottom of the ninth inning Sunday, April 24, against the Boston Red Sox and CL Craig Kimbrel. It was his only hit in five at-bats.

Fantasy Tip: Rasmus is up to seven home runs and he has amassed 18 RBIs with a week to play in the month of April. After bouncing around a little early in his career and failing to live up to expectations, he has finally found a home in Houston and he might just be scratching the surface.

Astros | Colby Rasmus batting fourth

Sun, 24 Apr 2016 17:00:48 -0700

Houston Astros OF Colby Rasmus will bat fourth against Boston Red Sox SP Henry Owens Sunday, April 24.

Fantasy Tip: Rasmus has just five at-bats against lefties this year, but as well as he has been swinging the bat, you can easily justify leaving him in your lineup despite the matchup.

Astros | Grand slam, five RBI for Colby Rasmus

Sat, 23 Apr 2016 17:17:07 -0700

Houston Astros OF Colby Rasmus went 2-for-4 with a grand slam, five RBI, a run scored and a walk in an 8-3 win over the Boston Red Sox Saturday, April 23.

Fantasy Tip: Rasmus hit a career-high 25 homers last year, and he is up to six this season in just 18 games. He usually sits against lefties, but his power upside makes him worth owning in just about every format. Just be prepared to swap him in and out of your lineup depending on the matchup.

Astros | Colby Rasmus launches a pair

Thu, 21 Apr 2016 20:36:07 -0700

Houston Astros OF Colby Rasmus went 2-for-3 with two home runs, three RBI, two runs scored and a walk in a 7-4 loss to the Texas Rangers Thursday, April 21.

Fantasy Tip: Rasmus rarely starts against lefties, but his 25-homer upside makes him worth the daily lineup maintenance, especially in deeper mixed leagues and AL-only formats.

Astros | Luis Valbuena, Colby Rasmus out

Tue, 19 Apr 2016 14:31:33 -0700

Houston Astros 3B Luis Valbuena and OF Colby Rasmus are not in the starting lineup against Texas Rangers left-handed SP Derek Holland Tuesday, April 19. 3B Marwin Gonzalez is starting at third base and hitting seventh, while OF Jake Marisnick sees the start in left field and is batting ninth.

Fantasy Tip: Gonzalez had a nice spring but has only four hits in 19 at-bats to start the season. Still, he could be a successful sleeper option against a southpaw tonight. Marisnick's biggest asset is his speed, but he's unlikely to be able to use it much hitting ninth in the order.

Astros | Colby Rasmus hits third jack

Mon, 11 Apr 2016 23:51:50 -0700

Houston Astros OF Colby Rasmus went 2-for-4 with a two-run home run Monday, April 11, against the Kansas City Royals. He also struck out twice.

Fantasy Tip: Rasmus has three homers and six RBIs over his past three outings. After some uneven years with St. Louis and Toronto, Rasmus appears to have found a home in Houston and he is a fantasy stud, finally living up to his immense potential.
