Astros | Alex Bregman to receive call-up Monday

Sun, 24 Jul 2016 15:05:08 -0700

Houston Astros minor-league 2B/3B/OF Alex Bregman is expected to receive a promotion from Class AAA Fresno on Monday, July 25. INF Danny Worth has already been designated for assignment to clear room on the 40-man roster for the organization's top prospect.

Fantasy Tip: Bregman has been tearing up the minors for the bulk of 2016, slashing .297/.415/.559 with 14 home runs and 46 RBI for Class AA Corpus Christi before being promoted to Fresno. In 18 games with the Grizzlies, last year's first-round pick is slashing .333/.373/.641 with six home runs and 15 RBI. Although he doesn't have an obvious positional opening at the moment, he has seen time at shortstop, third base and left field in the minors this season. Owners are advised to scoop him up immediately.

Astros | Houston sitting three lefties

Sun, 17 Jul 2016 11:58:01 -0700

Houston Astros OF Colby Rasmus, 1B A.J. Reed and C Jason Castro are not in the starting lineup against Seattle Mariners SP Mike Montgomery Sunday, July 17. 2B Jose Altuve will serve as the designated hitter, while 2B Danny Worth will start at second base and is batting eighth. 2B Marwin Gonzalez will start at first base and is batting second. OF Jake Marisnick will start in left field and is batting ninth.

Fantasy Tip: Gonzalez has been productive at times at the plate the season but probably can be avoided in most fantasy leagues. Worth and Marisnick are hitting under .200 this season and can be avoided in all leagues.

Fantasy Tip: Gonzalez is hitting .280 with two RBI over the last seven days and could be a decent option in deeper mixed leagues. Worth and Marisnick are both hitting under .200 this season and are not great options.

Astros | Several Houston regulars resting Saturday

Sat, 02 Jul 2016 10:39:04 -0700

Houston Astros OF Colby Rasmus, C Jason Castro and 1B A.J. Reed are not in the starting lineup against Chicago White Sox SP Chris Sale Saturday, July 2. INF Marwin Gonzalez will hit second and play first base, C Evan Gattis will start behind the plate and bat sixth, INF Danny Worth will bat eighth and play second base and OF Jake Marisnick will bat ninth and play left field. 2B Jose Altuve is serving as the designated hitter.

Fantasy Tip: Gattis is batting .429 over the past week and is 2-for-6 with a home run versus Sale in his career, making him a viable catching option this afternoon in DFS. Worth and Marisnick are nothing more than desperation sources of salary cap relief.

Fri, 24 Jun 2016 19:42:04 -0700

Houston Astros INF Luis Valbuena (back) left the game against the Kansas City Royals Friday, June 24, because of lower back tightness. He was replaced at the hot corner by INF Danny Worth.

Fantasy Tip: Valbuena went 0-for-1 with a walk and a run scored before exiting Friday's contest and should be considered day-to-day. He is batting .248 with eight homers and 22 RBI through 64 games this season.

INF Danny Worth will start at second base and is batting sixth. OF Jake Marisnick will start in left field and is batting ninth.

Astros | Danny Worth starting vs. Cardinals

Wed, 15 Jun 2016 13:55:48 -0700

Houston Astros SS Danny Worth is starting at third base and batting second against St. Louis Cardinals SP Adam Wainwright Wednesday, June 15. 1B Tyler White and INF Marwin Gonzalez are not in the starting lineup Wednesday.

Fantasy Tip: Worth earned a promotion by posting a .340/.449/.550 slash line through 54 games with Class AAA Fresno, so with White struggling (.178/.282/.289 slash line since May 1), Worth could see semi-regular starts going forward. Gonzalez is a victim of Houston not being able to utilize a designated hitter Wednesday. Don't overextend yourself pursuing Worth in deep mixed leagues, as A.J. Reed's likely a hot streak away from being promoted.

Astros | Luis Valbuena, Tyler White out

Tue, 14 Jun 2016 14:12:55 -0700

Houston Astros 3B Luis Valbuena and 1B Tyler White are not in the starting lineup against St. Louis Cardinals SP Jaime Garcia Tuesday, June 14. SS Danny Worth will start at third base and is batting fifth, while SS Marwin Gonzalez will start at first base and is batting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Worth posted terrific numbers with Class AAA Frisco, but owners probably should avoid him for the time being. Gonzalez is hitting .400 with one RBI over the last seven days. He should have value in deeper leagues and AL-only leagues because of his power potential and position versatility and should be a starting candidate in daily fantasy leagues.
