Astros | Three Astros starts not playing

Tue, 26 Jul 2016 14:12:23 -0700

Houston Astros OF Preston Tucker, OF Colby Rasmus and C Jason Castro are not in the starting lineup against New York Yankees SP CC Sabathia Tuesday, July 26. 3B Luis Valbuena will start at third base, while SS Alex Bregman will serve as the designated hitter. 1B Marwin Gonzalez will start at first base and is batting second. C Evan Gattis will start at catcher and is batting fifth. OF Jake Marisnick will start in left field and is batting ninth.

Fantasy Tip: Gonzalez is currently on a nine-game hitting streak and has two RBI during that span. Gonzalez can be a sleeper option in daily fantasy leagues during his hot streak. Gattis should be an attractive option in leagues because he is hitting .278 with three home runs and five RBI over the last seven days. Marisnick is hitting .333 this month but is still not a strong fantasy option.

Astros | Colby Rasmus sitting vs. Yankees

Mon, 25 Jul 2016 13:28:20 -0700

Houston Astros OF Colby Rasmus is not in the starting lineup Monday, July 25. OF Preston Tucker is starting in left field and batting second against New York Yankees SP Michael Pineda Monday.

Fantasy Tip: Rasmus hit seven home runs in April and has just four since, as he's struggled to the point of finding himself out of the lineup frequently. He isn't worth a roster spot outside of cavernous mixed and AL-only leagues. Tucker is 3-for-8 with three extra-base hits since being recalled from the minors, and he's a potential flier in daily contests Monday.
