Astros | Houston hitters lead in strikeouts

Tue, 26 Apr 2016 11:25:42 -0700

The Houston Astros lead all of the majors with 202 strikeouts heading into action Tuesday, April 26. OF George Springer leads Houston with 24 strikeouts on the year so far.

Fantasy Tip: This was a problem for Houston last year, too. They make little contact but can hit the ball out of the park with the best of them, as they rank second in the AL in home runs (27). At least right now, using a middling pitcher with strikeout upside is a nice value play in daily contests.

Sun, 17 Apr 2016 15:49:37 -0700

Fantasy Tip: Springer has done a good job following up on his .276-16-41 season of a year ago. He has three homers through Sunday and should be considered as a backup outfielder on your fantasy teams. He may not be strong enough to be in your starting three, but Springer does merit a roster spot.

Fri, 04 Sep 2015 13:50:08 -0700
