L.J. Hoes: not just for category leagues
by Al Melchior | Data Analyst

Earlier this month, my colleague Nando Di Fino presaged the steals potential that L.J. Hoes could provide Fantasy owners. Despite relatively modest minor league stolen base totals, Hoes hasn't disappointed in the category, providing seven steals in 22 games with the Astros.

While steals don't mean as much to owners in points leagues, Hoes has been offering value in those formats, as well as in category leagues. Over the last 21 days, Hoes ranks 13th among outfielders in Fantasy points. A .364 batting average has been key to his success, and while he may not hit .300 the rest of the way, Hoes could still provide value to owners in deeper mixed and AL-only points leagues. He has shown some doubles and triples power in the upper minors, has drawn walks at a high rate and hasn't struck out much.

Hoes isn't likely to produce enough home runs, RBI or runs to matter to owners in standard mixed leagues, but his plate discipline alone should earn him more owners in deeper formats.

L.J. Hoes has first home run with Astros
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Outfielder L.J. Hoes had his first home run with the Astros during Sunday's 7-5 win against the Angels. Hoes, who hit a solo home run off Jason Vargas, finished 3 for 4 with two runs.

Hoes has managed multiple hits in seven of his last 11 games. He's batting .386 (17 for 44) with a .614 slugging percentage, 1.027 OPS, one home run, one RBI, one walk, two triples, three doubles, three stolen bases and 11 runs in that span.

L.J. Hoes has some stolen base value
by Nando Di Fino | Senior Fantasy Writer

Astros outfielder L.J. Hoes -- acquired in a deadline deal with the Orioles -- has started three of five games since the trade, hitting .357 with a double and two steals in 14 at-bats.

The two steals for Hoes are a little surprising. While he can steal bases, he hasn't done it with such frequency in the past. In fact, Hoes has stolen exactly 20 bases three times in his minor league career -- all tied for his career-best. 

Whether this is a new philosophy for Hoes or just a small sample size remains to be seen. One of his stolen bases came at the hands of Jarrod Saltalamacchia, who has allowed the second-most steals of any catcher in the majors this season.

Hoes is worth an add in AL-only Roto formats (pretty much any player with semi-regular at-bats is), but owners in shallower leagues should keep an eye on him; if the speed continues, he could be worth a waiver pickup for some late-season help in steals.

L.J. Hoes traded to Houston
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

The Astros acquired outfielder L.J. Hoes from the Orioles Wednesday as part of the Bud Norris trade. Hoes is 0 for 4 in three career MLB games, but he hit .286 with a .366 on-base percentage, .380 slugging percentage and .746 OPS in 643 minor-league games.

Hoes was considered the Orioles' seventh-best prospect by MLB.com.
