  • Astros' Joey Loperfido: Showing power at Triple-A

    Loperfido has hit .289/.356/.711 across 51 plate appearances with Triple-A Sugar Land.

    Loperfido made a positive impression in spring training and has carried that over to the minor-league season. He mashed his sixth home run of the season Thursday against Albuquerque and has collected at least one hit in five consecutive games. While Loperfido's surface stats are impressive, he also has a 37.2 percent strikeout rate, an area he'll almost certainly need to improve upon before getting the call to Houston.

  • Astros' Mauricio Dubon: Playing time ticking up

    Dubon went 2-for-4 with an RBI on Thursday against the Royals.

    Dubon was in the lineup for the third time in the last four games, two of which have come in center field in the place of Jake Meyers. The former has picked up a total of 13 plate appearances in that span, collecting four hits and a double with two runs scored and an RBI. Meyers is likely to return to a more regular role, but Dubon is a capable replacement if he continues to be called upon.

  • Astros' Jose Altuve: On base four times

    Altuve went 3-for-4 with a walk and a double Thursday against the Royals.

    Altuve has reached base in every game of the regular season and Thursday marked his fifth multi-hit performance. He's also chipped in three homers and 10 runs scored across 14 contests. The only downside to Altuve's line to begin the new campaign is that he's attempted only one stolen base and was unsuccessful.

  • Astros' Yainer Diaz: Homers in loss

    Diaz went 2-for-5 with a solo home run in Thursday's 13-3 loss to the Royals.

    Diaz provided one of the few bright spots in Houston's lopsided defeat, blasting a 432-foot homer off Brady Singer to get the Astros on the board in the fourth inning. The 25-year-old Diaz has gotten off to a scorching start at the plate, going 17-for-51 (.333) with a .931 OPS, three homers and seven RBI through his first 13 games. Diaz looks to be building on his impressive rookie campaign, where he slashed .282/.308/.538 with 23 home runs and 60 RBI across 355 at-bats.

  • Astros' Hunter Brown: Brutal day in Kansas City

    Brown (0-2) took the loss against the Royals on Thursday, allowing nine runs on 11 hits and a walk in just two-thirds of an inning.

    Brown could only record two outs Thursday while the Royals nearly batted around twice en route to a nine-run opening inning. The 25-year-old right-hander hasn't missed many bats to start the season -- he's now allowed 14 runs on 19 hits over just 3.2 innings in his last two starts, pushing his ERA up to 16.43 on the season. Brown's currently in line for another tough matchup next week versus Atlanta, though a trip to the minors could be in order if he can't right the ship.

  • Astros' Jose Abreu: Out of lineup

    Abreu is not in the lineup for Thursday's contest in Kansas City, Chandler Rome of The Athletic reports..

    Abreu has been unspeakably bad at the plate in the early going, sporting a .227 OPS and 31.7 percent strikeout rate. It's his fourth day off already this season and in his last start he batted eighth. Given Abreu's struggles last season, he could continue to see his playing time dwindle if he doesn't right the ship. Jon Singleton will handle first base Thursday.

  • Astros' Jake Meyers: Moves to bench Thursday

    Meyers is out of the lineup for Thursday's game against the Royals, Matt Kawahara of the Houston Chronicle reports.

    Meyers will hit the bench for the third time in four games after he went 0-for-4 and committed an error in his return to the lineup in Tuesday's 11-2 loss to the Royals. The 27-year-old hasn't offered interesting numbers from a fantasy perspective thus far with a .200 average, two home runs, four RBI and three runs across 27 plate appearances, but he's still produced at a league-average level with a 100 wRC+. Mauricio Dubon will get the nod in center field Thursday, but Meyers should still have a bit of leash as the Astros' preferred option at the position.

  • Astros' Chas McCormick: Getting breather Thursday

    McCormick is absent from the lineup for Thursday's game in Kansas City, Chandler Rome of The Athletic reports.

    McCormick has just two hits across his last 24 plate appearances, so he'll have the afternoon off to regroup. Yordan Alvarez is in left field Thursday while Yainer Diaz occupies the designated hitter spot.

  • Astros' Chas McCormick: Slow start to season

    McCormick went 1-for-3 Wednesday against the Royals.

    McCormick has remained in the Astros' lineup consistently, starting 12 of 13 games to begin the campaign. He's struggled quite a bit lately, collecting only two hits in his last 24 plate appearances. On the other hand, McCormick has only five strikeouts as opposed to four walks in that span, so his results should turn around.

  • Astros' Spencer Arrighetti: Handed loss in debut

    Arrighetti (0-1) was the pitcher of record in Wednesday's 11-2 loss to the Royals after giving up seven earned runs on seven hits and three walks while striking out three in three innings.

    Arrighetti was called up from Triple-A Sugar Land to make his big-league debut Wednesday, but he labored during his time on the mound, placing only 47 of his 79 pitches for strikes before being pulled ahead of the bottom of the fourth inning. On a positive note, Arrighetti kept the ball in the yard and only two of the seven hits he allowed went for extra bases. Despite the uninspiring debut, with both Justin Verlander (shoulder) and Framber Valdez (elbow) on the shelf, Arrighetti will get at least one more turn through the rotation, according to Chandler Rome of The Athletic.

  • Astros' Cooper Hummel: Moves off 40-man roster

    Houston designated Hummel for assignment Wednesday.

    The move frees up a spot on the 40-man roster for right-hander Spencer Arrighetti, who is scheduled to start Wednesday's game in Kansas City. Hummel was claimed off waivers last week and now could be on the move again.

  • Astros' Spencer Arrighetti: Added to roster ahead of debut

    The Astros selected Arrighetti's contract from Triple-A Sugar Land on Wednesday, Matt Kawahara of the Houston Chronicle reports.

    Arrighetti is set to make his major-league debut in a starting role Wednesday in Kansas City. The 24-year-old is one of the team's top pitching prospects and holds a 2.16 ERA and 10:7 K:BB over 8.1 innings this season with Sugar Land. A 29.2 percent strikeout rate in the minors points to Arrighetti's promise, but a 10.7 walk rate suggests he's not a finished product yet, and fantasy managers might be best served with a wait-and-see approach.

  • Astros' Wander Suero: Sent down to Triple-A

    Suero was optioned to Triple-A Sugar Land on Wednesday, Matt Kawahara of the Houston Chronicle reports.

    Suero faced one batter in his one day with the Astros, surrendering a walk-off RBI single in Tuesday's extra-innings loss to the Royals. His roster spot is being absorbed by Wednesday's starter, Spencer Arrighetti.

  • Astros' Yordan Alvarez: Four hits versus Kansas City

    Alvarez went 4-for-5 with a double and two RBI in Tuesday's 4-3 extra-inning loss to the Royals.

The left-hander has now secured at least one hit in six out of his last seven games, batting an eye-popping .517 with four homers, three doubles, 11 RBI and seven runs scored over that stretch.

  • Astros' Cristian Javier: Pitches into sixth versus Royals

    Javier pitched 5.1 innings and allowed three runs (two earned) on five hits and three walks while striking out four batters in Tuesday's 4-3 extra-inning loss to the Royals.

    Javier was able to extend his scoreless streak to 15 innings to open the 2024 campaign by blanking the Royals through four frames Tuesday. The right-hander ran into trouble in the bottom of the fifth inning, surrendering a two-out. two-run triple to Bobby Witt before another unearned run came around to score later in the frame. Through three starts, Javier has produced a 1.10 ERA and 1.16 WHIP with 13 strikeouts over 16.1 innings. He's tentatively set to return to the mound Sunday at home versus the Rangers.
