Astros | Jason Castro out again

Wed, 29 Jul 2015 15:50:02 -0700

Houston Astros C Jason Castro is out of the lineup for the second straight day Wednesday, July 29. C Hank Conger gets the nod again and is hitting seventh against Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Garrett Richards.

Fantasy Tip: With Castro struggling with the bat, Conger ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) is seeing more playing time behind the plate. The switch-hitting catcher is only hitting .235 (27-for-115) with six home runs and 14 RBI, but that's been a big upgrade from Castro. Take note fantasy owners in deeper or two-catcher leagues if you're desperate.

Astros | Hank Conger starting behind the dish

Thu, 09 Jul 2015 13:17:59 -0700

Houston Astros C Hank Conger is starting behind the plate and batting seventh against Cleveland Indians SP Cody Anderson Thursday, July 9. C Jason Castro has been relegated to a bench role Thursday.

Fantasy Tip: Through 48 plate appearances against righties, Conger ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) owns a .325/.438/.550 slash line with six runs and six RBI this season. While it is a small sample size, Conger checks out as a nice source of cap relief with upside for FantasyScore players Thursday. Castro ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) is having his second consecutive down season after his breakout year in 2013. He is nothing more than a low-end catcher in AL-only, cavernous mixed and two-catcher formats.

Astros | Jason Castro out vs. lefty

Tue, 30 Jun 2015 15:03:12 -0700

Houston Astros C Jason Castro is not in the lineup against Kansas City Royals left-handed SP Danny Duffy Tuesday, June 30. C Hank Conger is starting and hitting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Conger ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) should be avoided at FantasyScore, because he has just nine hits in 50 at-bats (.180) against southpaws this season from the right side of the plate.

Astros | Jason Castro resting Friday

Fri, 26 Jun 2015 16:05:19 -0700

Houston Astros C Jason Castro is not in the starting lineup Friday, June 26. C Hank Conger draws the start and is hitting ninth against New York Yankees SP Nathan Eovaldi.

Fantasy Tip: Conger ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) will save you plenty of cap room for the rest of your FantasyScore roster. He's never a very attractive daily option, but he could pay off as a deep sleeper tonight in the Bronx. Conger hits better from the left side against righties (.303/.410/.545) with two of his four home runs, and he has the short porch in right field tonight in the Bronx.

Houston Astros C Jason Castro is not in the starting lineup against Seattle Mariners SP Roenis Elias Friday, June 19. C Hank Conger will be the starting catcher and is batting seventh in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Castro ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) likely is receiving a day off and should return to the lineup soon. Conger ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is hitting .333 with six RBI this month and could be a cheaper option for owners on FantasyScore to consider.

Fantasy Tip: Castro ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) probably is receiving a day off and should return to the lineup soon. Conger ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is producing more at the plate this month but is hitting only .203 this season and is not a great option on FantasyScore.
