News
Worth was designated for assignment by the Astros on Sunday.5 g

Since joining the Astors, the 30-year-old has posted just a .442 OPS over the course of 15 games (38 at-bats). The move came following Sunday's contest, when Marwin Gonzalez left with an ankle sprain. While there may be no correlation with that , Houston will look to improve their offensive production, adding Alex Bregman, one of the team's top prospects, potentially as an everyday utility player.

News
Bregman went 0-for-4 with a pair of strikeouts in his MLB debut Monday against the Yankees.

Yankees starter Michael Pineda, along with relievers Dellin Betances and Andrew Miller, combined to strike out 12 Astros in their 2-1 win. Bregman, who hit sixth in the lineup Monday, may soon move up to second in the batting order to bridge the gap between George Springer and Jose Altuve. That could happen as early as Tuesday when the Astros face southpaw C.C. Sabathia.

News
Marisnick is batting 12-for-36 with two stolen bases in July.

The Astros are running a three-man rotation out in left, which includes Colby Rasmus and the recently recalled, Preston Tucker. With the position packed, Marisnick is finding it difficult to get playing time despite having his best month at the plate.

Giles hasn't given up a run since June 18, spanning 10.1 innings.

The 25-year-old struggled to start the season, posting a 9.00 ERA in April. Now owning a 4.08 ERA, he has continuously improved as the season has progressed, compiling a 2.31 ERA in June, and a scoreless July.

Altuve went 3-for-5 with two homers, two runs and six RBI Sunday against the Angels.

Altuve launched a three-run homer to put the Astros on the board in the first inning before crushing his 17th bomb of the year in the following inning, leading to a blowout victory. He's now posted multiple hits in six of his last seven games, and he's slashing .360/.428/.575 on the season.

News
Fiers (7-4) allowed three runs on nine hits while striking out two over seven innings to earn the win Sunday against the Angels.

Fiers was provided and eight-run lead in the second inning as he cruised to his seventh victory of 2016. After allowing 10 runs in his last seven innings coming into this game, he turned things around nicely, and lowered his ERA to 4.69. He'll make his next start Saturday at the Tigers.

News
Keuchel (6-10) allowed two runs on six hits with five strikeouts over 7.2 innings but still took the loss Monday against the Yankees.

Keuchel extended his quality start streak to seven, but none of the last three have produced wins. Still, there's lots to like in Keuchel's recent stretch -- he owns a 2.72 ERA and a 1.12 WHIP over those seven starts. However, he has just 34 strikeouts over 46.1 innings in those seven starts, and unless he can find more whiffs, he won't make a full return to his Cy Young form from last season.

News
Manager A.J. Hinch indicated Wednesday night that Fister will likely be placed on the paternity list in the coming days, Brian McTaggert of MLB.com reports.

The move would provide the Astros with a useful roster spot following hamstring injuries for both Luis Valbuena and Carlos Gomez. Fister's stay on the paternity list, assuming it occurs in the next couple days, would also likely be short enough for the veteran hurler to make his next scheduled start Monday against the Blue Jays.

News
Gomez (hamstring) will visit the team doctors Thursday to assess his hamstring injury, Brian McTaggert of MLB.com reports.

Gomez finished the night 1-for-1 with an RBI prior to being lifted and replaced in center field by Jake Marisnick. The Astros don't play again until Friday in Detroit, so an update on his status should come well before that contest.

Valbuena (hamstring strain) won't play in Wednesday's game against the Yankees, the Houston Chronicle's Jake Kaplan reports.

He left Tuesday's game in the second inning with a hamstring strain, and considering the Astros have an off day Thursday, he will get at least two days off prior to the weekend series in Detroit. Alex Bregman figures to get the starts at third base while Valbuena is out.

Tucker went 2-for-3 with a double, a solo homer and two runs Sunday against the Angels.

Tucker's fourth blast of the season gave the Astros a 10-1 lead in an easy home win. He's collected two extra-base hits in his three games since being recalled on July 22.

Harris struck out two in a perfect ninth for his 11th save Wednesday against the Yankees.

Thanks to a four-run disaster against Oakland prior to the All-Star break, Harris still owns a not-so-hot 3.91 ERA since taking over as the Astros' closer, but he's also 11-for-12 in save chances in the midst of his second straight season as one of baseball's top relief aces. In fact, he's actually improved on last year's 1.90 ERA, as his 2016 figure's now down to 1.71 following Wednesday's save. Harris isn't giving up this job anytime soon.

News
Castro will sit out Tuesday's game against the Yankees.

Castro will take a seat as the Yankees send southpaw CC Sabathia to the mound. His future role behind the plate remains a question mark following the Astros' promotion of Alex Bregman, potentially leading to Evan Gattis playing more behind the dish to open up the DH spot. With all bodies healthy, his playing time could shrink moving forward.

Lance McCullers, #43
Year-to-date Stats

6476.13.1844100
 
News
McCullers (6-4) struck out 10 while holding the Yankees to a single run on five hits and two walks over six sharp innings in Wednesday's 4-1 win.

That's three consecutive one-run outings and five in six starts for McCullers, who also notched his third double-digit-strikeout game in that span. He did so while snapping a streak of three consecutive four-walk games. That said, we've seen the second-year fireballer show good control in spots before, only to regress, which is half of why he still owns a gargantuan 1.53 WHIP that's in strong disagreement with his shiny 3.18 ERA. The other half is that he's been victimized be a .378 BABIP, which seems overwhelmingly likely to drop toward normality down the stretch.

Position Breakdown
C - 25, DH - 47
News
Gattis is out of the lineup Wednesday against the Yankees, the Houston Chronicle's Jake Kaplan reports.

With Jason Castro getting the nod behind the dish and Preston Tucker starting in left field, the Astros will use the DH spot to keep George Springer's bat in the lineup, sending Gattis to the bench. When the Astros' lineup is at full strength with Yulieski Gurriel in the fold in a week or two, Gattis may struggle to get playing time when he is not in the lineup at catcher.

News
Rasmus recently underwent tests on his right ear that revealed a cyst in the inner portion, Brian McTaggart of MLB.com reports. The issue will eventually require surgery.

Rasmus is reportedly dealing with a growth of skin cells behind his ear drum that damages it, which could explain his recent struggles at the plate. There's no indication he plans on having the procedure in the near future, and there's nothing to suggest going under the knife would cost him extended time, but it's something worth monitoring.

Gonzalez went 2-for-4 with a homer, two runs and two RBI Tuesday against the Yankees.

Gonzalez's ninth blast of the season gave the Astros a 1-0 lead in the first inning of the game they'd go on to lose. He's now hit safely in nine straight games, and he's slashing .257/.296/.428 on the year.

Springer hit his a solo home run in a 1-for-4 game in Monday's loss to the Yankees.

The blast extended Springer's hitting streak to seven games, which has included a pair of homers to go with three doubles. Springer needed 102 games to hit 16 home runs last season. Monday marked just Springer's 99th game of 2016, and he is already at 22 home runs, surpassing his career high of 20 set in his rookie year of 2014.
