Houston Astros OF Alex Presley will play left field and bat ninth against Tampa Bay Rays SP Jake Odorizzi Saturday, July 11. OF Colby Rasmus, who played left field Friday, July 10, will move back to center field and bat cleanup Saturday.
Fantasy Tip: Presley ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) is 3-for-10 since being called up and hitless in two career at-bats versus Odorizzi. Unless you're really desperate for cap relief in FantasyScore, look elsewhere for a low-end outfield option.

Houston Astros OF Jake Marisnick is not starting Tuesday, July 7, against the Cleveland Indians. OF Alex Presley is in left field.
Fantasy Tip: Marisnick ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) is getting a rest after two straight games he played upon return from the disabled list. He is hitting .143 against Cleveland pitching, and that doesn't help either. Presley doesn't have much fantasy value.

Houston Astros OF Alex Presley will start in right field against Boston Red Sox SP Clay Buchholz Saturday, July 4.
Fantasy Tip: Presley picked up two hits and one RBI in his season debut Friday, July 3, and is back in the lineup. Owners should wait a few games before considering Presley for their lineups.

Houston Astros OF Alex Presley is playing center field and batting ninth against Boston Red Sox SP Justin Masterson Friday, July 3.
Fantasy Tip: Presley hit .308 in the minors this season, and he stands to receive a few starts while George Springer (wrist) is on the disabled list. Domingo Santana ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) could see the larger chunk, though. So Presley is nothing more than a desperation add in AL-only and cavernous mixed seasonal leagues, and he is a low-end source of cap relief for FantasyScore players.

Houston Astros OF George Springer (wrist) was placed on the disabled list with a right wrist fracture Thursday, July 2. OF Alex Presley was called up from Class AAA Fresno in a corresponding roster move.
Fantasy Tip: It's a tough blow for both the Astros and Springer's ($5,100, 10.2% of cap) fantasy owners, especially since this serious injury could cost Springer most, if not all, of the rest of the season. Hold him until we have a firm timetable on a possible return. Domingo Santana ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) is likely to have an everyday role in the outfield now, and he's an acceptable add in deep mixed and AL leagues.
