News
Devenski will start Saturday against the A's, Brian McTaggart of MLB.com reports.

Scott Feldman will be available out of the bullpen. Devenski kept the Astros in Sunday's game after Feldman dug an early hole, allowing two hits and no walks while fanning two batters over 3.1 scoreless innings against the Red Sox. The 25-year-old right-hander has posted a 12:1 in 13.2 innings to begin his major league career, with his lone blemish coming on a Mitch Moreland homer last week. Devenski threw 41 pitches during Sunday's appearance, so five innings may be his max Saturday.

News
Kratz, 35, made his first big league pitching appearance during Tuesday's 11-1 blowout loss to Seattle, allowing two runs (one earned) on three hits during his lone inning of relief.

Short on relievers coming into the game, the Astros were able to save their bullpen some work and use Kratz in relief when the game was out of reach in the eighth inning. The backup catcher threw 17 of his 27 pitches for strikes and even mixed in a few knuckleballs during his relief appearance.

News
Feliz, who was recalled from Triple-A Fresno late Sunday due to the Astros' need for a long-man out of the bullpen, allowed four runs (three earned) on four hits during his lone inning of relief in Tuesday's blowout loss to Seattle.

Feliz likely would have worked multiple innings Tuesday, but he needed 42 pitches to get through a disastrous seventh inning that culminated in a grand slam off the bat of Robinson Cano. The 22-year-old did strike out three batters, but he's struggled mightily in both of his relief appearances with the Astros, leading to a 15.19 ERA and 2.81 WHIP over 5.1 innings.

News
Astros manager A.J. Hinch said he's not worried about Giles despite his early season struggles, Jake Kaplan of the Houston Chronicle reports.

"The stuff out of his hand is still really good," Hinch said of the 25-year-old who was acquired by the Astros via trade in December. "I'm not worried about him long term. I'm not worried about him in his next outing because of that stuff." Despite his skipper's confidence, Giles (0-2) sports an ugly 8.31 ERA, 1.85 WHIP and 12:3 K:BB ratio over 8.2 innings. "I don't have an answer as to why things aren't going my way," he said after being charged with his second loss of the season Sunday. A .446 BABIP is one cause that's due for some correction, but Giles' struggles can't just be attributed to bad luck. While his slider has been effective, his fastball hasn't, which has led to three home runs allowed this season. Prior to 2016, Giles had allowed just three home runs over 115.2 innings. With Luke Gregerson pitching well in the ninth inning for the Astros, don't expect him to cede the closer role to Giles anytime soon.

News
Altuve went 3-for-5 with two doubles, a homer, two RBI and three runs against the Mariners on Wednesday.

As the season's first month winds toward a close, Altuve has been perhaps fantasy's most valuable asset, with six homers and nine steals to go with his typically fantastic batting average, now at .330. He's clearly fantasy's top second baseman, and it's not particularly close.

News
McHugh (2-3) needed 101 pitches to get through five innings in Seattle on Wednesday, but allowed just two runs on five hits and a walk en route to the win. He struck out three.

The 28-year-old hurler has been less than impressive to open the year, with one sparkling start against the Royals having been buried by four outings that don't inspire a ton of confidence. This one doesn't either -- if this is what qualifies as a good start from McHugh, he and his fantasy owners are in for a long season.

Dallas Keuchel, #60

News
Keuchel (2-3) allowed five runs on six hits and two walks with five strikeouts over six innings during Tuesday's 11-1 loss at Seattle.

The reigning AL Cy Young award winner closes out a rough April with a 4.41 ERA, 1.41 WHIP and 27:13 K:BB ratio over 32.2 innings. Keuchel will attempt to right the ship next week after the calendar flips to May with two home starts against the Twins (Monday) and Mariners (Saturday). The 28-year-old southpaw was brilliant at Minute Maid Park last season, going 15-0 with a 1.46 ERA.

News
Gomez (hand) is in the lineup for Friday's game against the A's.

He was optimistic he could give it a go after X-rays on the hand were negative, and it seems Gomez showed manager A.J. Hinch enough in batting practice to convince him he is fine. Gomez has been struggling throughout the season, but he will be facing a lefty in Sean Manaea on Friday, and Gomez has at least fared well in a small sample against southpaws this year (5-for-13).

News
Valbuena is not in the lineup for Friday's game against the A's.

Marwin Gonzalez will man third base and bat eighth with left-hander Sean Manaea toeing the rubber for Oakland. With seven strikeouts in his last three starts, Valbuena has now struck out 19 times in 57 at-bats this season, and he's still without a home run.

News
Feldman will be available to pitch out of the Astros' bullpen for Friday's series opener at Oakland, Jake Kaplan of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Feldman was originally scheduled to start Saturday against the A's, but Houston wants to get a better look at Chris Devenski, who will start that game instead. The 33-year-old right-hander hasn't pitched in relief since 2012, but he'll remain in the bullpen for at least one turn in the rotation.

News
Tucker is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Mariners, Brian McTaggart of MLB.com reports.

With Tucker out of the lineup, Evan Gattis will man the designated hitter role and bat fifth for Wednesday's game. Tucker is 9-for-41 on the year and is likely to see his role decline in the future as Gattis is slowly returning from a lower back injury that cost him the first couple weeks of the season. Even though he may not slot into the DH spot as often, Tucker will still provide additional outfield depth for the club.

White is out of the lineup Wednesday against the Mariners, Brian McTaggart of MLB.com reports.

In White's place, Marwin Gonzalez will be manning first base while batting seventh for the Astros. After a scorching hot start to the year, White has cooled off a bit, but is still batting .261/.329/.536 with five home runs and 13 RBI through 20 games this season.

Castro is not in the lineup for Friday's game against the A's.

The 28-year-old broke out of an 0-for-18 slump Wednesday, smacking his first double of the season in the third inning (third extra-base hit). He will give way to Erik Kratz on Friday, and as Castro continues to struggle, the speculation as to when the Astros will acquire an upgrade behind the plate grows louder.

Shoulder - Expected to be out until at least May 10 (Updated - 4/20/16)
News
McCullers (shoulder) will pitch in an extended spring training game Wednesday, Brian McTaggart of MLB.com reports.

On the heels of a successful bullpen session Friday, McCullers now heads to extended spring to face live hitters. The expectation is that he will throw approximately three innings. The team decided to hold off on McCullers' rehab assignment after he had some trouble bouncing back from a throwing session, but he could join an affiliate in short order if Wednesday's outing goes well.

Gattis is not in the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Mariners, Greg Johns of MLB.com reports.

Despite producing two straight two-hit efforts, Gattis will get another day off after starting off the season batting a mere .222 with only one RBI. He'll cede the designated hitting duties to Preston Tucker for the day.
