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.

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).

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.

Take note fantasy owners in deeper or two-catcher leagues if you're desperate.
