      Astros' Colby Rasmus: Accepts qualifying offer

      Rasmus will accept the Astros' one-year, $15.8 million qualifying offer, Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports reports. The move won't net Rasmus any long-term security, but he will be paid a pretty penny in 2016 after never earning more than $8 million in any previous season. The Astors are presumably set in center field and right field with Carlos Gomez and George Springer, respectively, so he figures to see spot action at those positions but primarily play in left field.

      Colby Rasmus: Extended qualifying offer

      Rasmus was extended a qualifying offer by the Astros on Friday. Rasmus had a resurgence in the power department in 2015, hitting a career-best 25 home runs. The 29-year-old had a great postseason as well, slugging four more homers while hitting .412 in six games. He should land a starting job somewhere in the outfield wherever he lands.

      Astros OF Colby Rasmus stays hot with third homer of ALDS

      Astros outfielder Colby Rasmus went 2 for 4 with a walk and home run his third of the American League Division Series - in a Monday loss to Kansas City. Rasmus victimized reliever Ryan Madson for the second time in the set with a solo shot to right field in the seventh inning. The 355-foot blast was his fourth home run of the 2015 playoffs. It's safe to assume the red-hot Rasmus will be in the starting lineup for the winner-take-all Game 5.

      Astros OF Colby Rasmus not in starting lineup Tuesday

      Astros outfielder Colby Rasmus is not in the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Mariners. The 29-year-old will sit in favor of Marwin Gonzalez in left field for a second straight day, with another lefty in Vidal Nuno due up for Seattle. Rasmus got a start against a lefty Sunday, and has an .826 OPS against left-handed pitching for the season, but manager A.J. Hinch seems intent on keeping Gonzalez involved with semi-regular starts.

      Astros OF Colby Rasmus held out of Tuesday's lineup

Rasmus started the last five times the Astros faced a southpaw, and is batting .259/.380/.444 against left-handed pitching for the season, numbers well above his career marks (.219/.300/.372). However, with Rasmus coming off an 0 for 3 game in his ninth consecutive start, manager A.J. Hinch has opted to sit Rasmus and slot Marwin Gonzalez in as his left fielder against Hector Santiago.
