Houston Astros 2B Jose Altuve (jaw) said he fully intended to play Tuesday, May 14, after suffering a subluxed jaw Monday, May 13. He'll have to miss at least the next two days, though, after being placed on the bereavement list.
Fantasy Tip: Altuve could miss up to seven days on the bereavement list, and it's unknown how long he'll be away from the team. The good news is that his jaw wasn't seriously injured. Marwin Gonzalez and Ronny Cedeno are expected to be the starting middle infield tandem with Altuve out.

Houston Astros manager Bo Porter said SS Marwin Gonzalez has earned the right to receive more starts.
Fantasy Tip: Gonzalez is competing with Ronny Cedeno for time at shortstop, but Gonzalez clearly has more upside. Gonzalez won't wow with the stick, but with more playing time, he'll at least be worth considering in deep NL leagues if you're in need of a warm middle-infield body.

Texas Rangers SP Yu Darvish was one out from a perfect game Tuesday, April 2, against the Houston Astros, but SS Marwin Gonzalez broke up his bid for history with a clean single through the pitcher's leg with two outs in the ninth inning. Darvish is the first pitcher to lose a perfect game with two outs in the ninth since former Detroit Tigers P Armando Galarraga on June 2, 2010. He finished with 14 strikeouts, matching a Minute Maid Park record. Darvish was removed by manager Ron Washington after 8 2/3 innings and 111 pitches. He has yet to throw a complete game in the majors.

Houston Astros SS Marwin Gonzalez and SS Tyler Greene are each getting a shot to show they can be the starting shortstop in spring training. "I said this to Tyler and Marwin, 'You guys are going to tell us who the starter is going to be,'" manager Bo Porter said Friday, March 8. "It cannot be something judged day in and day out. It's a process, and we're going to allow it to take place throughout the course of spring training, and when we get to the end of spring training, we'll have enough data and enough information to make a really good decision who the starter should be."
