Astros' Andrew Aplin: Has tenuous hold on roster spot
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Aplin is a candidate to be removed from Houston's 40-man roster should the team need a spot during the offseason or spring training, Jake Kaplan of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Aplin, a fifth-round pick in the 2012 draft, took a large step backwards in 2016, his first full season at Triple-A Fresno of the hitter-friendly Pacific Coast League. He's played 219 games with 848 plate appearances over three seasons at the Triple-A level, where he's hit just .245 and struck out in 21 percent of his at-bats. Compare that to his production at the lower levels, where Aplin hit .278 with a strikeout rate of 13 percent, and it paints a picture of a player that has reached a ceiling.

Astros' Andrew Aplin: Falters at plate
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Aplin has a .202/.313/.274 line after playing 39 games at Triple-A Fresno.

Aplin split time between Triple-A Fresno and Double-A Corpus Christi in 2015, but was deemed worthy of starting 2016 with Fresno. However, he has struggled to find his footing at the plate and had a sub .200 batting average until Tuesday's outing against Triple-A Oklahoma City. An area of Aplin's game that has been particularly problematic is his plate discipline. Aplin's BB/K ratio is currently 0.71, when it's traditionally in the range of 1.13 to 1.32. If his struggles persist, it's possible for Aplin to return to Double-A Corpus Christi for further development.

Astros' Andrew Aplin: Sent to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Aplin was assigned to Triple-A Fresno on Sunday, MLB.com's Brian McTaggart reports.

There was never much of an opportunity for Aplin to break camp with the Astros, as the team's ample depth in the outfield virtually assured that the 24-year-old would need to suffer a slew of injuries to crack the 25-man roster. Aplin will likely spend most of the season with Fresno, for whom he produced a .275/.392/.348 slash line to go along with 20 steals over 285 plate appearances in 2015.

Astros' Andrew Aplin: Not expected to make Opening Day roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

In 11 Grapefruit League appearances, Andrew Aplin is 4-for-22 (.182) with a double and an RBI for the Houston Astros .

The outfield is crowded in Houston, with Carlos Gomez, George Springer and Colby Rasmus occupying starting roles, with defensive whiz Jake Marisnick and Preston Tucker behind them as the fourth and fifth outfielders respectively. Aplin will likely open 2016 in Triple-A, where he's spent parts of the last two seasons.
