Astros' Jake Meyers: Sparks ninth-inning rally
Meyers went 2-for-4 with a two-run home run in Wednesday's 7-6 win over the Cubs.
Meyers got the Astros within a run when he took Keegan Thompson deep in the ninth inning. Over his last six games, Meyers had gone just 2-for-20. The outfielder owns a .245/.314/.382 slash line with three homers, 13 RBI, 13 runs scored, a stolen base and six doubles through 121 plate appearances. With Chas McCormick (back) in the mix again, Meyers' playing time has slipped, though it remains unclear who has the edge for starts in center field going forward.... See More ... See Less
Astros' Jake Meyers: Heads to bench Sunday
Meyers is out of the lineup for Sunday's game versus the White Sox.
Chas McCormick returned from the injured list last Monday only to immediately aggravate his back injury, which allowed Meyers to receive the past four starts in center field. McCormick is back in action for Sunday's series finale in Chicago, pushing Meyers to the bench.... See More ... See Less
Astros' Jake Meyers: Breaking out of slump
Meyers went 2-for-4 with two doubles, two RBI and a run scored Saturday against the Mariners.
Meyers has been inconsistent while filling in as Houston's primary center fielder in the absence of Chas McCormick (back), though he now has a pair of hits in each of his last two starts. Across his prior seven starts, he had recorded only three hits in 25 at-bats while striking out at a 31 percent clip. Despite the inconsistency, Meyers still has a .321 wOBA with 10 runs scored and 10 RBI across 93 plate appearances on the season.... See More ... See Less
Astros' Jake Meyers: Remains everyday center fielder
Meyers will start in center field and bat eighth in Monday's game against the Rays.
Meyers will enter the series opener at Tropicana Field riding a six-game hitting streak, during which he's gone 9-for-22 with a home run, two doubles, six RBI and four runs. The hot-hitting Meyers appears to have solidified himself as Houston's everyday center fielder in the absence of Chas McCormick (back); he'll be making his ninth consecutive start Monday....

Astros' Jake Meyers: Gaining stability in center field
Meyers will start in center field and bat eighth in Wednesday's game against the Blue Jays.
He'll be getting his fifth straight start in center field, and with Chas McCormick (back) moving to the injured list Tuesday, Meyers looks like he'll handle an everyday role for the foreseeable future. Meyers hasn't yet made much of a fantasy impact, as he's hitting .212 with one home run and no stolen bases through his first 37 plate appearances of the season.... See More ... See Less
Astros' Jake Meyers: Blasts first homer
Meyers went 2-for-4 with a three-run home run and two runs in Monday's 9-2 win over the Blue Jays.
Meyers has stepped into a regular starting role with Chas McCormick (eye) sidelined in the short term. Monday's game marked Meyers' fourth consecutive start, which was highlighted by a three-run homer -- his first extra-base hit of the season -- in the first inning. Otherwise, he hasn't done anything particularly notable 33 plate appearances into the new campaign, and McCormick is very likely to immediately retake the center field job upon his return....

Astros' Jake Meyers: Sits again Sunday
Meyers is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the White Sox, Brian McTaggart of MLB.com reports.
Meyers started the first two games of the season but went 0-for-6 with a walk and four strikeouts, and he finds himself on the bench Sunday for the second straight contest. Chas McCormick went 1-for-2 with an RBI, two walks and a stolen base in his first appearance of the season Saturday and will make his second consecutive start in the series finale versus Chicago....

Astros' Jake Meyers: Not in Saturday's lineup
Meyers will sit Saturday against the White Sox, Julia Morales of AT&T SportsNet Southwest reports.
Meyers started in center field in both of the season's first two games but went a combined 0-for-6 with four strikeouts. Chas McCormick will get his chance Saturday.... See More ... See Less
Astros' Jake Meyers: Gets start in CF over McCormick
Meyers is starting in center field and batting seventh for the Astros in Thursday's opener versus the White Sox.
Chas McCormick seemingly was the favorite to open up in center field for the Astros, but manager Dusty Baker is going with Meyers, at least for the first game. In all likelihood, the two will share playing time at the position initially until one if them distinguishes themselves.... See More ... See Less
Astros' Jake Meyers: In lineup Tuesday
Meyers (hamstring) is starting in center field and batting leadoff in Tuesday's split-squad game against the Marlins, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports.
The 26-year-old has recently been battling a hamstring injury but will return to the field Tuesday. Meyers has gone through some growing pains with three pitch-clock violations during camp, but he should have the timing ironed out by the start of the season. He's expected to open the campaign as Houston's No. 4 outfielder, assuming Yordan Alvarez (hand) and Michael Brantley (shoulder) are both good to go by Opening Day.... See More ... See Less
Astros' Jake Meyers: Working back from hamstring injury
Astros manager Dusty Baker said Meyers has been dealing with a hamstring injury lately, but the outfielder is expected to play in one of the team's split-squad games Tuesday, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports.
Meyers has been going through a learning curve this spring with the new pitch clock, but he seems to be getting the hang of it. After struggling to maintain a consistent role down the stretch in 2022, he'll look to prove his worth early in the 2023 campaign as a utility man in the outfield. This spring, Meyers is batting .267 with a double, an RBI and three runs scored over 15 at-bats.... See More ... See Less
Astros' Jake Meyers: Struggling to adjust to pitch clock
Meyers, who has gone 3-for-12 with a double and a walk through five Grapefruit League games, has been charged with three pitch-clock violations so far this spring, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports.
Both pitchers and hitters alike have faced the challenge of adopting to the implementation of the new pitch clock, but Meyers is perhaps struggling with the adjustment more than most. For his part, Meyers acknowledged that he needs to speed up his process of getting in the batter's box and believes the violations will be correctable, but it's yet another challenge the 26-year-old faces coming off a trying 2022 campaign. After being sidelined until late June of last season while recovering from shoulder surgery, Meyers batted just .227 and struck out in 33.8 percent of his 160 plate appearances to take himself out of the mix for regular playing time in center field during the Astros' march to their second World Series title....

Astros' Jake Meyers: Two hits, steal in win
Meyers went 2-for-3 with a stolen base and a run scored in Saturday's 2-1 win over the Rays.
Meyers scored the opening run in the third inning, and he added a single and a steal in the seventh. This was the outfielder's first start since he was recalled from Triple-A Sugar Land on Thursday. He also matched his career high in major-league games played at 49, and he's produced a .218/.263/.310 slash line with two steals, one home run, 14 RBI, 13 runs scored, six doubles and two triples through 152 plate appearances in 2022....

Astros' Jake Meyers: Recalled from minors
Meyers was recalled from Triple-A Sugar Land on Thursday.
Meyers spent an extended period of time in Houston earlier this summer, recording a .557 OPS over 149 plate appearances. Since being shipped to Triple-A toward the end of August, he's slashed .337/.450/.543 over 111 plate appearances. He will likely serve as a depth piece in the Astros' outfield as they close out the season. In a corresponding move, Yainer Diaz was optioned to Triple-A, though he will remain with the big club on the taxi squad.... See More ... See Less
Astros' Jake Meyers: Sent to Triple-A
Meyers was optioned to Triple-A Sugar Land on Monday, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports.
Meyers has struggled to a .190 average with one RBI, one stolen base and two runs scored over 18 games in August, likely prompting his demotion. The Astros have yet to announce a corresponding move.... See More ... See Less
Astros' Jake Meyers: Swipes first bag
Meyers went 1-for-3 with a walk and a stolen base Sunday against Atlanta.
Meyers recently lost out on regular playing time after falling into a lengthy slump, as he's hit only .188 with four RBI and two runs scored in 23 games since the All-Star break. However, the team was without Jose Altuve (shoulder) on Sunday and Aledmys Diaz (groin) is on the injured list. If Altuve remains out, that could open up regular playing time once again for Meyers.... See More ... See Less
Astros' Jake Meyers: On bench for third straight
Meyers is out of the lineup for Thursday's game against the White Sox.
Meyers will take a seat for the third game in a row and appears to have lost hold of the center-field job while the Astros seem to have taken a full-blown committee approach to the position. Chas McCormick is making his second straight start in center and may have tentatively emerged as the preferred option, but Mauricio Dubon also picked up a start at the position Tuesday. In all likelihood, manager Dusty Baker will likely wait and see if any among McCormick, Dubon and Meyers can get hot at the plate before settling on a clear-cut top option in center field....

Astros' Jake Meyers: Remains on bench
Meyers isn't starting Wednesday against the White Sox, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports.
Meyers has gone just 1-for-6 over his last two games and will be on the bench for the fifth time in the last eight matchups. Chas McCormick is starting in center field and batting eighth.... See More ... See Less
Astros' Jake Meyers: Takes seat Tuesday
Meyers isn't in the lineup for Tuesday's game against the White Sox, James Fegan of The Athletic reports.
It's been a quiet month for Meyers, who's gone 6-for-28 with two doubles and no RBI. Mauricio Dubon is the starting center fielder Tuesday.... See More ... See Less
