Astros | Luis Valbuena, Jason Castro out

Fri, 29 Apr 2016 16:17:10 -0700

Houston Astros 3B Luis Valbuena and C Jason Castro are not in the starting lineup against Oakland Athletics SP Sean Manaea Friday, April 29. SS Marwin Gonzalez will start at third base and is batting eighth, while C Erik Kratz will start at catcher and is batting ninth.

Fantasy Tip: Gonzalez has gone 4-for-15 with one home run and one RBI over the last seven days and is not a strong option in most leagues. Kratz is hitting only .069 this season and should be avoided in all leagues.

Astros | Preston Tucker, Jason Castro out

Mon, 25 Apr 2016 15:44:52 -0700

Houston Astros OF Preston Tucker and C Jason Castro are not in the starting lineup Monday, April 25. OF Evan Gattis is serving as the designated hitter and batting sixth, while C Erik Kratz is behind the plate and is hitting ninth against Seattle Mariners SP Taijuan Walker.

Fantasy Tip: Gattis is starting to see more of the starts as the DH over Tucker, which limits Tucker's value to cavernous mixed and AL-only leagues. Gattis is hitting only .212 in the early going and hasn't gone deep yet in 32 at-bats, so he's a risky play against the strong Walker Monday night. Kratz should be ignored everywhere.

Sat, 23 Apr 2016 10:36:30 -0700

Houston Astros C Jason Castro is back in the starting lineup against Boston Red Sox Clay Buchholz Saturday, April 23, batting ninth.

Fantasy Tip: Castro is batting just .132 on the year and has struck out 18 times in 38 at-bats, so he should be avoided in all fantasy formats.

Astros | Jason Castro sitting out vs. Boston

Fri, 22 Apr 2016 15:11:58 -0700

Houston Astros C Jason Castro is not in the starting lineup Friday, April 22. C Erik Kratz is starting behind the plate and batting ninth against Boston Red Sox SP Steven Wright Friday.

Fantasy Tip: Castro has negatively regressed annually since his 2013 breakout and currently sits with a .132/.214/.237 slash line to start 2016. At this point, he is nothing more than a desperation fantasy option. Kratz is 0-for-11 to start this season and cannot be started with confidence in any fantasy format Friday.

Houston Astros C Jason Castro is not in the lineup Tuesday, April 12, against the Kansas City Royals. C Erik Kratz is hitting ninth in Castro's place.

Astros | Houston had talks with Jason Castro

Sun, 14 Feb 2016 08:18:15 -0800

The Houston Astros discussed contract extension proposals with C Jason Castro this offseason before salary arbitration numbers were exchanged. According to a person familiar with the offers, a potential two-year deal was discussed, as well as a possible three-year deal with an option year.

Fantasy Tip: Castro is eligible to become a free agent after the 2016 season and will make $5 million this year after losing his arbitration case. He hit just .211 with 11 home runs and 31 RBIs in 104 games last season and is an option for AL-only and two-catcher fantasy baseball leagues.

Astros | Jason Castro loses in arbitration

Tue, 09 Feb 2016 10:32:21 -0800

Houston Astros C Jason Castro lost his arbitration case, and he'll make $5 million in 2016 instead of the $5.25 million he was seeking.

Fantasy Tip: Castro is more of an option for fantasy owners in two-catcher or AL-only leagues. He hasn't hit better than .222 in the last two years, although he has some pop to offer, especially in a nice hitting environment at Minute Maid Park.

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.

Astros | Jason Castro sitting out

Wed, 23 Sep 2015 09:17:52 -0700

Houston Astros C Jason Castro is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, Sept. 23. C Max Stassi is behind the plate and is hitting ninth against Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Nick Tropeano.

Fantasy Tip: Stassi ($2,500, 5.0% of cap) has only 13 at-bats for the Astros this year but does have five hits and a home run in that short span. Regardless, he's at the bottom of the order and isn't attractive at all on FantasyScore on a day with a full slate of games.
