Astros | Carlos Correa remains out of the lineup

Sun, 30 Aug 2015 08:41:12 -0700

Updating a previous report, Houston Astros SS Carlos Correa (hamstring) is not in the starting lineup Sunday, Aug. 30. SS Marwin Gonzalez is starting at shortstop and batting second against Minnesota Twins SP Ervin Santana Sunday.

Fantasy Tip: Continue to remain patient with Correa ($5,200, 10.4% of cap) in seasonal leagues, and avoid him at FantasyScore until he returns, which is expected to be sooner than later. Gonzalez ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) stands as a viable value play in daily contests Sunday. He is batting .300 over 34 games since the All-Star break.

Astros | Jed Lowrie out vs. Twins

Sun, 30 Aug 2015 08:30:43 -0700

Houston Astros 3B Jed Lowrie is not in the starting lineup Sunday, Aug. 30. 1B Chris Carter draws into the lineup and is batting seventh against Minnesota Twins SP Ervin Santana Sunday.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to avoid Lowrie ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) in all fantasy formats Sunday. He is batting just .159 since returning from injury Thursday, July 30, and seasonal owners should consider replacements. Carter ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) is a potential flier for FantasyScore players Sunday, as Santana ($5,800, 11.6% of cap) sports a target-worthy 9.20 ERA over his past six starts. Still, Carter is extremely risky.

Astros | Carlos Correa questionable vs. Twins

Sun, 30 Aug 2015 05:50:06 -0700

Houston Astros SS Carlos Correa (hamstring) will not play against the Minnesota Twins Sunday, Aug. 20, unless he is 100% healthy, according to manager A.J. Hinch. "It's a pretty simple decision. If there's sensitivity in there and he's showing any signs of discomfort, it's a no. No different than parenting."

Fantasy Tip: You'll want to check back for an official word on Correa ($5,200, 10.4% of cap), but it wouldn't be shocking to see him return Sunday. Still, he might not be the safest play at FantasyScore after missing time. The rookie has hit a bit of a road bump in August, too. He sports a .238/.354/.440 slash line, but the power has remained with five long flies and 14 RBI. Continue to view Correa as a high-end shortstop in all fantasy formats.

Astros | Mike Fiers follows up no-no nicely

Sun, 30 Aug 2015 05:43:11 -0700

Houston Astros SP Mike Fiers allowed one run on three hits and three walks while striking out five batters during the Astros' 4-1 win over the Minnesota Twins Saturday, Aug. 30.

Fantasy Tip: Over his four starts with Houston, Fiers ($7,800 15.6% of cap) owns a 0.67 ERA with 24 punchouts over 27 innings, including his no-hitter Friday, Aug. 21. Fiers is worth owning in all seasonal formats at this point, and he is a matchup play at FantasyScore. Just keep your expectations in check because he has been inconsistent in the past and is likely pitching a touch over his head of late.

Astros | Carlos Correa not in the lineup

Sat, 29 Aug 2015 14:29:48 -0700

Houston Astros SS Carlos Correa (hamstring) is not in the starting lineup against Minnesota Twins SP Mike Pelfrey Saturday, Aug. 29. SS Marwin Gonzalez will start at shortstop and is batting second, while OF Jake Marisnick is starting in left field and is batting ninth.

Fantasy Tip: Owners should monitor Correa's ($5,200, 10.4% of cap) status to see when he may be able to return to the lineup. Gonzalez ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) and Marisnick ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) could be cheaper options for owners on FantasyScore.

Astros | Jason Castro placed on DL

Sat, 29 Aug 2015 14:29:13 -0700

Houston Astros C Jason Castro (quadriceps) was placed on the 15-day disabled list because of a quadriceps injury. The team also recalled C Max Stassi from Class AAA Fresno.

Fantasy Tip: Hank Conger ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) probably will receive most of the starts with Castro out of the lineup. Conger is hitting only .215 this season and is not a great option on FantasyScore.

Astros | Collin McHugh posting solid numbers

Fri, 28 Aug 2015 17:31:28 -0700

Over his last 36 starts, Houston Astros SP Collin McHugh has 21 victories, seven losses and a 3.36 ERA. Only San Francisco Giants SP Madison Bumgarner (22-8) has more wins over that stretch.

Fantasy Tip: During the month of August, McHugh ($6,500, 13.0% of cap) went 2-2 with a 1.89 ERA over five starts, with 34 strikeouts in 33 1/3 innings. He will make his next start against the Seattle Mariners Wednesday, Sept. 2, and is worthy of consideration for your FantasyScore lineups.

Astros | George Springer set for rehab assignment

Fri, 28 Aug 2015 14:53:47 -0700

Houston Astros OF George Springer (wrist) will begin a rehab assignment with Class AA Corpus Christi Saturday, Aug. 28.

Fantasy Tip: Springer ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) should be owned in all seasonal formats, and he should inject a spark in both the Houston lineup and your fantasy team. He'll need to shake off a lot of rust during his rehab assignment and don't rule out a slow start once he returns. Still, he offers five-category production and tremendous upside.

Astros | Carlos Correa nursing hammy soreness

Fri, 28 Aug 2015 14:28:32 -0700

Houston Astros SS Carlos Correa (hamstring) is dealing with soreness in his left hamstring and is not in the starting lineup Friday, Aug. 28. SS Marwin Gonzalez is starting at shortstop and batting seventh against Minnesota Twins SP Tyler Gibson Friday.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to avoid Correa ($5,200, 10.4% of cap) in all fantasy formats Friday. It doesn't appear to be a serious injury, so there is potential for Correa to rejoin the starting lineup Saturday, Aug. 29. Gonzalez ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) is a sneaky value play at FantasyScore Friday, as he is 11-for-38 with four extra-base hits and a .834 OPS over his past 12 games. Still, Gonzalez is a long way from a lineup lock.

Astros | Collin McHugh dazzle pinstripers

Wed, 26 Aug 2015 19:50:20 -0700

Houston Astros SP Collin McHugh allowed two earned runs, five hits and two walks with eight strikeouts over 6 1/3 innings in a win against the New York Yankees Wednesday, Aug. 26.

Fantasy Tip: McHugh ($6,500, 13.0% of cap) is 2-2 in five starts in the month of August, but he has a sparkling 1.89 ERA with at least five strikeouts in each of his outings. All five outings have been quality starts, too, and his lack of wins is more of a run support issue, as the team had totaled just three runs in his previous three starts.

Astros | Evan Gattis stays scorching hot

Wed, 26 Aug 2015 19:49:55 -0700

Houston Astros OF Evan Gattis swatted two more solo home runs Wednesday, Aug. 26, against the New York Yankees.

Fantasy Tip: Gattis ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) is a tremendous source of power in FantasyScore at a cut-rate price. He has three homers and six RBIs over the past two days, and five homers with nine RBIs over the past 10 games. He also has three straight multi-hit games, so ride the wave until he cools off a bit.

Astros | Colby Rasmus gets the gate

Wed, 26 Aug 2015 19:49:34 -0700

Houston Astros OF Colby Rasmus was ejected in the fifth inning for arguing balls and strikes Wednesday, Aug. 26, against the New York Yankees.

Fantasy Tip: The bad news is that Rasmus ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) was run from the game, finishing 1-for-3 with two strikeouts. The good news is that it wasn't any sort of an injury. He remains a low-end FantasyScore option going forward.

Astros | Jed Lowrie slumping since return

Wed, 26 Aug 2015 11:03:13 -0700

Houston Astros 3B Jed Lowrie is hitting just .186 entering the day Wednesday, Aug. 26, since coming off the disabled list.

Fantasy Tip: Despite his slump since his return, Lowrie ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) is a valuable commodity in deep mixed leagues as an everyday player, and his power potential will continue to make him an intriguing value option in daily formats.

Astros | George Springer to begin rehab soon

Wed, 26 Aug 2015 10:32:34 -0700

Houston Astros OF George Springer (wrist) could start a minor league rehab assignment as early as this weekend after he took batting practice again Wednesday, Aug. 26, for the third straight day. He will hit with the team again Friday, Aug. 28. He could be sent to Class AA Corpus Christi or Class AAA Fresno.

Fantasy Tip: Springer ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) should have been stashed everywhere, and his owners will be happy to return him to their starting lineup immediately when he's back next month. He should continue to be a solid FantasyScore click when he returns, as well.

Astros | Jake Marisnick draws into lineup

Wed, 26 Aug 2015 09:02:12 -0700

Houston Astros OF Jake Marisnick is starting in left field and hitting eighth against New York Yankees SP Michael Pineda Wednesday, Aug. 26.

Fantasy Tip: Marisnick ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) might be a bit more intriguing to some today because it's Pineda's first start since coming off the DL, but the right-hander has 117 strikeouts and only 15 walks in 118 innings this season. Marisnick has a nice combination of speed and power, but his on-base percentage is just .265 this year, and his low lineup spot makes him a weaker FantasyScore option.
