Astros | Colby Rasmus remains out

Mon, 29 Jun 2015 15:26:52 -0700

Santana ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) has recorded at least one hit in four of his last five games has picked up six RBI this month.

Astros | Jake Marisnick to DL

Fri, 19 Jun 2015 15:27:03 -0700

Houston Astros OF Jake Marisnick (hamstring) was placed on the 15-day disabled list Friday, June 19, due to a left hamstring strain. In a corresponding move, the Astros activated OF Colby Rasmus from the bereavement list.

Fantasy Tip: Marisnick ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) got off to a hot start but has significantly cooled in recent weeks. He shouldn't lose his job over this, but keep an eye on Marisnick's status upon his return in case he ends up sharing time.

Fantasy Tip: FantasyScore players can drop Rasmus from their cheat sheets for at least three to seven days. If Santana sees regular playing time he could be an intriguing play.

Sun, 14 Jun 2015 10:47:46 -0700

Houston Astros OF Preston Tucker is not in the starting lineup against Seattle Mariners SP Roenis Elias Sunday, June 14. OF Colby Rasmus will start in left field and is batting fifth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Tucker ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) likely is sitting because the team is facing a left-handed pitcher. Rasmus ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) is batting a solid .261 this month but does not have any home runs or RBI during that span. Owners on FantasyScore may be able to find better options to use.

Astros | Colby Rasmus batting fifth

Fri, 12 Jun 2015 15:42:58 -0700

Houston Astros OF Colby Rasmus is starting in center field and batting fifth against Seattle Mariners SP Felix Hernandez Friday, June 12.

Fantasy Tip: Rasmus ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) has a .219/.306/.281 slash line over his past 36 plate appearances without a home run or RBI and only one run scored. Against Hernandez, there is no reason to target Rasmus in FantasyScore contests Friday. At this point, Rasmus' seasonal value doesn't extend beyond AL-only and deep mixed leagues.

Astros | Jake Marisnick out vs. Seattle

Fri, 12 Jun 2015 15:36:39 -0700

Houston Astros OF Jake Marisnick is not in the starting line Friday, June 12. OF Colby Rasmus is starting in center field and batting fifth against Seattle Mariners SP Felix Hernandez Friday.

Fantasy Tip: After a scorching start to the season, Marisnick ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) has hit just .162 with a .430 OPS over his past 27 games dating back to Sunday, May 10. Worse, though, he only has one home run and one stolen bases during the stretch. Outside of AL-only and cavernous mixed leagues, Marisnick isn't worth a roster spot. Rasmus ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) is nothing more than a low-priced flier for FantasyScore players Friday. Hernandez's pitching arsenal is filthy and best avoided.

Astros | Preston Tucker out

Sun, 07 Jun 2015 08:44:55 -0700

Houston Astros OF Preston Tucker isn't in the starting lineup Sunday, June 7, against the Toronto Blue Jays. OF Colby Rasmus remains in the lineup and he'll bat fourth against RHP R.A. Dickey.

Fantasy Tip: Rasmus ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) is just 1-for-6 in his return to Toronto, but he'll have his final opportunity for revenge this series against the knuckleballer. With a .243 ISO, Rasmus holds a high upside with Dickey's propensity to give up the long ball.

Rasmus ($3,100. 6.2% of cap) has picked up five hits in his last 11 games and has not recorded an RBI in any of his last 12 games. Owners on FantasyScore may be able to find a better option to use on FantasyScore.

Astros | Jake Marisnick out of lineup

Fri, 05 Jun 2015 11:33:47 -0700

Houston Astros OF Jake Marisnick is not in the starting lineup Friday, June 5. OF Colby Rasmus is starting in center field and hitting fifth in the batting order against Toronto Blue Jays SP Aaron Sanchez.

Fantasy Tip: Rasmus ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) does have six of his eight home runs this year against right-handed pitchers, despite hitting only .236 (25-for-106) against them. Although he's settled down of late, Sanchez has allowed seven home runs in 10 starts this year. Consider Rasmus a sleeper pick tonight on FantasyScore.
