Astros | Colby Rasmus out Tuesday

Tue, 21 Jul 2015 14:36:52 -0700

Houston Astros OF Colby Rasmus is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, July 21, against the Boston Red Sox. L.J. Hoes is starting instead.

Fantasy Tip: Rasmus ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) has not faced Red Sox pitcher Brian Johnson, but Rasmus is hitting .182 in the last week and .230 against left-handed pitchers. It sounds like this is a normal day off, so remove Rasmus accordingly.

Astros | Alex Presley in lineup Saturday

Sat, 11 Jul 2015 11:40:20 -0700

Houston Astros OF Alex Presley will play left field and bat ninth against Tampa Bay Rays SP Jake Odorizzi Saturday, July 11. OF Colby Rasmus, who played left field Friday, July 10, will move back to center field and bat cleanup Saturday.

Fantasy Tip: Presley ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) is 3-for-10 since being called up and hitless in two career at-bats versus Odorizzi. Unless you're really desperate for cap relief in FantasyScore, look elsewhere for a low-end outfield option.

Thu, 02 Jul 2015 11:58:19 -0700

Houston Astros OF Colby Rasmus (hand) remains with the team on their trip to Boston Thursday, July 2. He is recovering from an infected bug bite on his left hand.

Fantasy Tip: It looks like Rasmus ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) will avoid the DL. However, it's unknown if he'll be back in the lineup tonight against the Red Sox. If he is in there, he's a risky FantasyScore option against a left-handed pitcher.

Astros | Colby Rasmus remains out
