    Player Outlook

    Carlos Beltran bucked expectations last season at 39 years old by playing in his most games and having his highest home run total (29) and OPS (.850) since 2012. For the third time in his career, Beltran was traded at the deadline, and hit seven home runs in 52 games with the Rangers after a stellar stint with the Yankees. Beltran signed with the Astros in the offseason and should play close to every day between left field and DH while batting in the heart of the order. While there's considerable downside at age 40, Beltran showed little decline in his skill set in his late-30s. He should continue to be a productive player if he can stay healthy.

    Player News
    • Beltran went 2-for-4 with a solo homer and two runs Friday against the Rays. Beltran's second homer of the season tied things at 1-1 in the second inning of a game the Astros would eventually win. After going 14 games without a homer, he's now left the yard in consecutive contests to raise his slugging percentage to .419, and he should continue to be a reliable fantasy option as the season progresses.

    • Beltran is out of Wednesday's lineup against the Angels. He is hitting .259/.286/.315 with three doubles and zero home runs in 54 at-bats. Evan Gattis will get the start at DH and hit fifth against righty JC Ramirez.

    • Beltran went 2-for-5 with three RBI in Wednesday's 10-5 win over Seattle. While many in the Astros lineup have gotten off to a chilly start, Beltran has stood out, having hit safely in seven of his first nine starts. As others begin to heat up -- Josh Reddick and Jose Altuve got on base eight times hitting ahead of Beltran in the order -- we can expect to see his bat make a bigger impact.

    • Astros' Carlos Beltran: Gets rest day Sunday
      By RotoWire Staff

      Beltran is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Royals. Beltran routinely rested during Sunday afternoon games as a member of the Yankees last season, and now that he's a year older and on an Astros squad with considerable depth, he'll probably sit out many of those contests again in 2017. Evan Gattis will fill Beltran's usual DH spot Sunday and hit sixth in the lineup.

    • Astros' Carlos Beltran: Bats fifth Monday
      By RotoWire Staff

      Beltran served as designated hitter and batted fifth in the order in Monday's 3-0 win over the Mariners on Opening Day. Beltran was hitless in three at-bats and struck out twice against Felix Hernandez while serving as protection for the Astros' dynamic shortstop and cleanup hitter, Carlos Correa (who homered Monday). The 39-year-old will be the DH most nights against right-handers while getting starts in left field when Houston faces a left-hander.
