Astros | Houston sitting three lefties

Mon, 30 May 2016 11:16:14 -0700

Houston Astros 1B Luis Valbuena, 3B Colin Moran and OF Tony Kemp are not in the starting lineup against Arizona Diamondbacks SP Edwin Escobar Monday, May 30. OF Colby Rasmus will start in left field, while OF Jake Marisnick will start in center field and is batting seventh. 1B Tyler White will start at first base and is batting fifth. SS Marwin Gonzalez will start at third base and is batting sixth.

Fantasy Tip: Marisnick has been more productive at the plate recently but is still hitting only .164 on the season, so owners should be able to find better options. White and Gonzalez are both hitting under .230 this season and are not strong fantasy option.

Astros | Colin Moran sent to the minors

Mon, 30 May 2016 08:11:09 -0700

Houston Astros 3B Colin Moran was sent to the minors Monday, May 30.

Fantasy Tip: Moran had only two hits in 19 at-bats in his first taste of the majors. He could be back up later this year, but fellow prospect and teammate Alex Bregman has a higher ceiling at the hot corner and should be higher on your list of stash candidates in keeper/dynasty formats.

Fantasy Tip: White has only one hit in his last seven games and is hitting only .192 this month. Owners in most leagues should be able to find better options to use in their lineups.

Astros | Tyler White out Friday

Fri, 27 May 2016 16:13:10 -0700

Houston Astros 1B Tyler White is not in the starting lineup Friday, May 27. 3B Luis Valbuena shifts over to first base, which allows 3B Colin Moran to receive a start at third base against Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Matt Shoemaker. Valbuena is hitting sixth and Moran is hitting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: White continues to struggle after impressing in April. His average is down to .228 on the season, and he's likely to continue losing playing time. He's becoming less valuable by the day in deep mixed and AL leagues. Valbuena has homered in each of the last three games and should be thrown out there while he's hot. Moran is hitless in his first 12 major league at-bats. Take a wait-and-see approach with the youngster for now.

Astros | Colin Moran, Tony Kemp starting

Tue, 24 May 2016 14:20:48 -0700

Houston Astros 3B Colin Moran is starting at third base and is hitting seventh, and OF Tony Kemp is in left field and batting ninth against Baltimore Orioles SP Chris Tillman Tuesday, May 24. 1B Tyler White and INF Marwin Gonzalez are starting on the bench.

Fantasy Tip: White has slumped badly since a hot start in April and his average is down to .230. He's quickly losing fantasy luster in deep mixed and AL leagues. Gonzalez is intriguing for his pop and multipositional eligibility, but with Moran around, his playing time situation is sketchy. Moran and Kemp are notable prospects that can contribute for owners in deeper leagues if they see enough at-bats. In daily formats tonight they're both more along the lines of deep sleepers against the hot Tillman. Moran is hitless in seven at-bats while the speedy Kemp has two hits (one double) in nine at-bats so far.

Astros | Three regulars out for Houston

Sun, 22 May 2016 10:37:11 -0700

Houston Astros 3B Colin Moran, 3B Luis Valbuena and OF Tony Kemp are not in the starting lineup against Texas Rangers SP Cole Hamels Sunday, May 22. 1B Tyler White will start at first base and is batting sixth. SS Marwin Gonzalez will start at third base and is batting seventh, while OF Jake Marisnick will start in center field and is batting ninth.

Fantasy Tip: Marisnick and Gonzalez are hitting under .100 over the past seven days and should be avoided in most leagues. White is hitting .267 with two home runs and three RBI during that span and is a sleeper option in some daily fantasy leagues.

Astros | Colin Moran sits against lefty

Sat, 21 May 2016 13:53:57 -0700

Houston Astros 3B Colin Moran is sitting out Saturday, May 21, with 1B Tyler White hitting sixth.

Fantasy Tip: White popped two homers earlier this week, but he really hasn't done much else this month. He's a low-end option against left-hander Cesar Ramos today.

Astros | No Tyler White Friday

Fri, 20 May 2016 14:27:57 -0700

Houston Astros 1B Tyler White is not in the starting lineup Friday, May 20. 3B Colin Moran draws a start at third base and is hitting sixth, while 3B Luis Valbuena moves across the diamond to play first base. Valbuena is hitting seventh against Texas Rangers SP Colby Lewis.

Fantasy Tip: Both White and Valbuena have been struggling, so Moran has an opportunity for the time being to display his impressive plate discipline and growing power stroke. It's unclear exactly how much playing time Moran will receive, but his upside deserves consideration in deep mixed, AL-only and keeper leagues. Valbuena and White are headed in the opposite direction.

Astros | Colin Moran, Marwin Gonzalez draw starts

Wed, 18 May 2016 14:27:25 -0700

Houston Astros 3B Colin Moran and INF Marwin Gonzalez are starting against Chicago White Sox SP Mat Latos Wednesday, May 18. Moran is at third base and hitting sixth, while Gonzalez is starting at first and is batting seventh. 3B Luis Valbuena and 1B Tyler White will start on the bench.

Fantasy Tip: Moran and Gonzalez could start seeing more playing time at the expense of Valbuena and White. Moran will be making his major league debut after hitting .288 with three home runs and 22 RBI at Class AAA Fresno. He doesn't have much power but has a mature approach at the dish and can hit for average. Consider adding him in AL-only and deep mixed leagues if he plays enough. Gonzalez gives you plenty of options with eligibility at every infield position but catcher. He also has some power that'll certainly play in deeper leagues for depth.

Astros | Colin Moran to play regularly

Tue, 17 May 2016 09:31:14 -0700

Houston Astros 3B Colin Moran is expected to be used at third base and designated hitter, and he'll face left-handed pitchers in four of the next six games. The plan is for Moran to receive regular at-bats.

Fantasy Tip: Unless Marwin Gonzalez goes on the DL, this will hurt the playing time and value of Luis Valbuena the most. Moran has the ability to hit for a high average, as shown by his .288 average with Class AAA Fresno. He has never reached double-digit home runs in the minors but could see his power develop over time. He's one to add in dynasty and AL-only leagues for now, but take a wait-and-see approach in mixed leagues.
