Houston Astros OF Colby Rasmus is not in the starting lineup against Oakland Athletics left-handed SP Drew Pomeranz Wednesday, April 15. OF Robbie Grossman is starting in left field and hitting seventh in the batting order.
Fantasy Tip: Grossman ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) doesn't give daily gamers at FantasyScore much confidence against Pomeranz, especially since the Astros as a whole have struggled to put together much of anything offensively. Grossman hit just .216 with one of his six home runs against southpaws in 2014.

Houston Astros OF Colby Rasmus is not in the starting lineup against Texas Rangers SP Derek Holland Friday, April 10. OF Robbie Grossman is starting in left field and batting eighth in Rasmus' place.
Fantasy Tip: Grossman ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is very cheap at FantasyScore, which makes him. He's a switch hitter, which makes since for the 'Stros to sit Rasmus instead. However, Grossman is merely a lottery ticket today against the Rangers.

Houston Astros OF Dexter Fowler (intercostal) is set to be activated from the disabled list Wednesday, Aug. 13.
Fantasy Tip: Jake Marisnick is expected to move to right field when Fowler comes back, with Robbie Grossman starting mostly in left field. The setback for George Springer (quadriceps) will give Grossman a little longer shelf life in the Houston outfield.

Houston Astros OF George Springer (quadriceps) was placed on the 15-day disabled list with a left quadriceps strain. In a corresponding move, 1B/OF Marc Krauss was recalled from Triple-A Oklahoma City.
Fantasy Tip: It's retroactive to Sunday, July 20, but this could be a slow recovery and potentially affect his SB potential when he gets back. This cements AL-only asset Enrique Hernandez in center field. Deep mixed leaguers can give Robbie Grossman a try if they can only find an alternative via Houston. Krauss has some pop, and Hernandez has risen through the farm ranks the last few years, but neither is a recommended grab in mixed games.
