Houston Astros OF Justin Maxwell (hand) has started lightly swinging a fungo bat as he recovers from a fractured left hand.
Fantasy Tip: Maxwell still needs significant time to come back from his injury. In the meantime, the Astros have drastically changed their outfield alignment, beginning when they released Rick Ankiel. Jimmy Paredes, Robbie Grossman and J.D. Martinez have earned consistent playing time, and depending on how they're playing when Maxwell returns, he may find himself without regular PT.

Houston Astros OF Justin Maxwell (hand) had his cast removed Tuesday, May 7, and he is progressing nicely.
Fantasy Tip: Don't expect Maxwell to return to the 'Stros until June, though, since he has yet to perform any baseball activities. Houston just reshuffled their outfield stable yesterday, too, so Maxwell may find himself battling for playing time when he's ready to return. He's a commodity in very deep mixed leagues when he returns, but only if he's back in a starting role.

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.
