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.

Houston Astros OF Rick Ankiel has a good shot to make the opening day roster, and he could even wind up starting in right field. He'll earn $750,000 with incremental bonuses based on plate appearances if he makes the team. Ankiel's strong outfield arm may set him apart from the team's other options. Those he'll be competing with include OFs Justin Maxwell, Fernando Martinez, J.D. Martinez and Brandon Barnes.
