Astros | Luis Valbuena has productive game

Sat, 09 Jul 2016 05:42:52 -0700

Houston Astros 3B Luis Valbuena went 3-for-5 with one home run and four RBI against the Oakland Athletics Friday, July 8.

Fantasy Tip: Valbuena has extended his hitting streak to five games and has eight RBI during that span. He should be an attractive starting option in daily fantasy leagues and should also be used in deeper mixed leagues.

Astros | Luis Valbuena goes deep

Wed, 06 Jul 2016 21:43:27 -0700

Houston Astros 3B Luis Valbuena was 1-for-4 with a two-run home run and a pair of runs scored against the Seattle Mariners on Wednesday, July 6.

Fantasy Tip: Valbuena has now homered in back-to-back games, and he has three jacks in his last six starts. The third sacker clubbed 25 home runs a year ago, and he's currently on pace to set a new career high in RBI while also batting 27 points above his career mark. Valbuena has some deep mixed league appeal.

Astros | Houston sitting two lefties

Sun, 03 Jul 2016 10:10:32 -0700

Houston Astros 3B Luis Valbuena and OF Colby Rasmus are not in the starting lineup against Chicago White Sox SP Jose Quintana Sunday, July 3. 1B Marwin Gonzalez will start at third base and is hitting second, while OF Jake Marisnick will start in left field and is hitting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Gonzalez is hitting only .200 with two RBI over the last seven days and probably can be avoided in most leagues. Marisnick is still hitting under .200 this season and does not have much value in most leagues.

Astros | Luis Valbuena reaches the seats

Wed, 29 Jun 2016 18:49:00 -0700

Houston Astros 3B Luis Valbuena went 1-for-2 with a solo home run, two walks, two runs scored and two RBIs Wednesday, June 29, against the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim.

Fantasy Tip: Valbuena doesn't look like a power hitter, but he has some surprising pop. He is a tremendous mid-tier DFS option, and worth starting in all AL-only seasonal leagues and deeper mixed fantasy formats.

Astros | Luis Valbuena in two-hole

Mon, 27 Jun 2016 16:05:36 -0700

Houston Astros 3B Luis Valbuena is starting at third base and is hitting second against Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Matt Shoemaker Monday, June 27.

Fantasy Tip: Valbuena has been hot in June, hitting .309 with two home runs and eight RBI, but he's only hitting .254 on the year. He has pop from the left side but tends to swing and miss too often for owners to rely on in most mixed leagues. He could split time often with Marwin Gonzalez moving forward, too.

Fantasy Tip: It appears safe to get Valbuena back into the active fantasy lineup in all formats and DFS play, as he made it through the game without any setbacks and looked good in doing it.

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.

Sun, 19 Jun 2016 15:03:09 -0700

Houston Astros 3B Luis Valbuena homered Sunday, June 19, in a 6-0 win over the Cincinnati Reds.

Fantasy Tip: Valbuena's homer was his eighth of the season. It appears he is warming up at the plate following an early-season slump. However, you may want to check for favorable matchups and stick to Valbuena in DFS and deeper format leagues.

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.
