Rays | Tampa acquires Hank Conger

Thu, 03 Dec 2015 08:59:57 -0800

The Tampa Bay Rays acquired C Hank Conger from the Houston Astros Thursday, Dec. 3, in exchange for cash. Conger hit .229 with 11 home runs and 33 RBI in 73 games in 2015 for the Astros.

Fantasy Tip: With the move to Tampa, Conger has an opportunity to compete for the starting catching job with the likes of Rene Rivera and Curt Casali. It's realistic that Conger wins the job, which would give him appeal in AL-only leagues if you wait on the position.

Astros | Jason Castro out against M's

Tue, 29 Sep 2015 16:04:06 -0700

Houston Astros C Jason Castro is out of the lineup against Seattle Mariners left-handed SP Vidal Nuno Tuesday, Sept. 29. C Hank Conger is doing the catching and is batting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: The switch-hitting Conger ($2,900, 5.8% of cap) hasn't been successful against southpaws this year (.168/.264/.337) in 95 at-bats. That alone is reason to avoid him on FantasyScore this evening.

Mon, 07 Sep 2015 11:50:47 -0700

Houston Astros C Hank Conger is not in the starting lineup against Oakland Athletics SP Felix Doubront Monday, Sept. 7. C Max Stassi will start at catcher and is batting seventh in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Conger ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) should return to the lineup in the next game or two. Stussi ($2,500, 5.0% of cap) probably should not be a starting option in most fantasy leagues.

Astros | Hank Conger drives in five

Fri, 04 Sep 2015 21:42:16 -0700

Houston Astros C Hank Conger went 2-for-4 with a grand slam and five RBI in an 8-0 win over the Minnesota Twins Friday, Sept. 4.

Fantasy Tip: Conger ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) has decent power upside for a cheap price, but with a .220 batting average, he is a shot-in-the-dark play at FantasyScore.

Astros | Hank Conger starting vs. Yanks

Mon, 24 Aug 2015 13:11:10 -0700

Houston Astros C Hank Conger is starting behind the plate and batting ninth against New York Yankees SP Nathan Eovaldi Monday, Aug. 24. C Jason Castro has the day off.

Fantasy Tip: Conger ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) has been more consistent with more regular playing time in Houston this year, but he's still hitting just .223 (31-for-139) with eight home runs and 21 RBI. Eovaldi has been on a real nice stretch lately, too, making Conger a weaker catching option on FantasyScore tonight.

Astros | Hank Conger draws into lineup

Wed, 19 Aug 2015 16:18:46 -0700

Houston Astros C Hank Conger is starting behind the plate and batting eighth against Tampa Bay Rays SP Nathan Karns Wednesday, Aug. 19. C Jason Castro has the day off.

Fantasy Tip: The switch-hitting Conger ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) prefers facing right-handers, and he's batting .323 (21-for-65) against them with six of his eight home runs in 2015. He's not a bad target as a backup catcher and value pick on FantasyScore tonight. Conger will also save you a tremendous amount of loot for other spots on your roster.

Astros | Jason Castro out of the lineup

Sun, 16 Aug 2015 10:44:40 -0700

Houston Astros C Jason Castro is not in the starting lineup against Detroit Tigers SP Matt Boyd Sunday, Aug. 16. C Hank Conger will start at catcher and is batting seventh in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Castro ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) should return to the lineup in the next game or two. Conger ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) is hitting only .237 in limited playing time this season and should not be a starting option.

Astros | Hank Conger catching Saturday

Sat, 08 Aug 2015 10:25:05 -0700

Houston Astros C Hank Conger will bat ninth against Oakland Athletics SP Jesse Chavez Saturday, Aug. 8.

Fantasy Tip: Conger ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) is batting .320 with three home runs and nine RBIs in just 25 at-bats since the All-Star break, although he is faring better against lefties than righties. He's worth considering as a productive source of salary cap relief in FantasyScore.

Astros | Hank Conger draws a start

Wed, 05 Aug 2015 15:08:22 -0700

Houston Astros C Hank Conger is starting behind the plate and hitting seventh against Texas Rangers SP Nick Martinez Wednesday, Aug. 5. C Jason Castro will start on the bench.

Fantasy Tip: Conger ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) isn't a bad catcher to click if you're looking for some upside as salary cap relief. He has eight home runs and 20 RBI this year while hitting .254 (31-for-122). The switch-hitter is much better against right-handers, too (.356/.441/.746 with a 1.187 OPS and six of his eight home runs in 59 at-bats).

Astros | Big game for Hank Conger

Sat, 01 Aug 2015 20:46:37 -0700

Houston Astros C Hank Conger went 3-for-4 with two home runs, five RBI and two runs scored in a 9-2 win over the Arizona Diamondbacks Saturday, Aug. 1.

Fantasy Tip: Conger ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) has a .508 slugging percentage, and he has shown solid pop when he has played. He is worth taking a chance on as a source of cap relief at FantasyScore when he is in the lineup.
