Houston Astros OF Colby Rasmus (illness) is not in the starting lineup against Kansas City Royals SP Joe Blanton Monday, June 29. OF George Springer will start in center field and is batting first, while OF Domingo Santana will start in right field and is batting eighth in the lineup.
Fantasy Tip: Owners should monitor the situation to see when Rasmus ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) will be able to return to the lineup. Santana ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) has recorded at least one hit in four of his last five games has picked up six RBI this month. Santana could be a cheap outfield option, but owners on FantasyScore should be able to find a better option.

Houston Astros OF Domingo Santana was recalled from Triple-A Oklahoma City. 1B Jesus Guzman (back) was placed on the 15-day disabled list due to back spasms.
Fantasy Tip: Santana had a rough stint with the big club earlier this season but hit .297 in his last 10 games at Triple-A. He's still whiffing at a high rate, but he should be owned in most AL-only formats.

The Houston Astros placed OF Dexter Fowler (intercostal) on the 15-day disabled list with a right intercostal strain Tuesday, July 1. The move is retroactive to June 27.
Fantasy Tip: L.J. Hoes and Alex Presley should see plenty of playing time in the Houston outfield now, but don't forget about prospect Domingo Santana, who was just recalled from the minors. Santana has the most upside and should warrant regular PT with Fowler on the shelf. Santana doesn't have much speed, but the raw power will be appealing in AL-only leagues.

The Houston Astros are expected to call up OF Domingo Santana, INF Enrique Hernandez and RP Kevin Chapman Tuesday, July 1.
Fantasy Tip: Santana is the most fantasy relevant of the bunch as he's hitting .304 with 13 homers and 51 RBIs at Triple-A. Add him in AL-only leagues, and he's on the fringe in mixed leagues. Hernandez is hitting .337 with eight homers and 31 RBIs. His fantasy ceiling isn't as high, but he needs added in AL-only leagues as well. Chapman could eventually be a closer candidate, but he doesn't have much value right now.
