Mon, 28 Jul 2014 18:10:33 -0700

Houston Astros OF L.J. Hoes worked with hitting coach John Mallee in the batting cage on the field Monday, July 28, as the hitting coach is trying to get Hoes to stay behind the ball and drive it more. "(He) gets a little to his front side and his posture, his head is more forward as opposed to the center of his body or a little behind," Mallee said. "Trying to get him to lead out with his hip, and that allows him to be direct (to) the ball and also get the barrel under his hands at contact and get left to the ball."

Astros | Dexter Fowler to DL

Tue, 01 Jul 2014 09:24:27 -0700

The Houston Astros placed OF Dexter Fowler (intercostal) on the 15-day disabled list with a right intercostal strain Tuesday, July 1. The move is retroactive to June 27.

Fantasy Tip: L.J. Hoes and Alex Presley should see plenty of playing time in the Houston outfield now, but don't forget about prospect Domingo Santana, who was just recalled from the minors. Santana has the most upside and should warrant regular PT with Fowler on the shelf. Santana doesn't have much speed, but the raw power will be appealing in AL-only leagues.

Astros | L.J. Hoes acquired

Wed, 31 Jul 2013 17:49:11 -0700

The Houston Astros acquired OF L.J. Hoes and P Josh Hader from the Baltimore Orioles Wednesday, July 31, in exchange for SP Bud Norris. Houston also received a competitive lottery draft pick, roughly 35th overall.

Fantasy Tip: Hoes, a left-handed pure swinger, is developing some moderate power. He hit .304 with three home runs and 40 RBIs in 365 at-bats with Triple-A Norfolk. He should have a chance to see significant playing time in Houston after they traded Justin Maxwell away. Consider adding him in deep AL-only leagues. Hoes is starting for the 'Stros Wednesday.
