Street (knee) is making his 2017 Cactus League debut Friday, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register reports.
Coming off a 6.45 ERA during (surprise) an injury-shortened 2016, Street is battling for the closer role with Cam Bedrosian (groin) and Andrew Bailey, among others. His body of work and name recognition may land him the job initially, but it's wise for fantasy players to remain skeptical, especially considering his health issues and the talent Bedrosian boasts when healthy.
Healy went 1-for-3 with a two-run single and a walk in Sunday's 9-5 loss to the Yankees.
Healy opened the scoring on the day by roping a hit to left in the second that plated Khris Davis and Yonder Alonso. The slugging infielder has hit safely in 13 of the last 14 games and has now matched his April RBI total (10), with six of those runs having been driven in over the last five contests.
McCullers (6-1) allowed three runs (two earned) on five hits (one homer) while walking two and striking out eight over six innings in Sunday's 8-4 win over the Orioles.
McCullers settled down nicely after allowing all three of his runs in his first two innings. The impressive right-hander snapped his streak of 22 scoreless innings by giving up a two-run dinger to Jonathan Schoop in the first inning, but McCullers was able to win his fourth straight in the end. The 23-year-old allowed five runs twice in April but hasn't allowed more than two runs in any of his six May starts and posted four straight scoreless outings before this one. There aren't many hurlers throwing better than McCullers this season, and with his 10.1 K/9, he's one of the higher-ceiling starters around.
Gurriel went 2-for-4 with a double, two runs scored and two RBI in Sunday's 8-4 win over the Orioles.
Gurriel has seen his average drop from .329 to .263 in the month of May, but the Cuban has shown flashes of intrigue with four long balls and 17 RBI in 170 plate appearances. He has room to grow with just a 2.4 percent walk rate, but the fact that he's striking out under 15 percent of the time is good news for the 32-year-old. Gurriel is more of a part-time player on a crowded Houston roster, so he's really only useful right now for bench depth in deeper formats.
Gonzalez went 2-for-4 with a double, a run scored and two RBI in Sunday's 8-4 win over Baltimore.
Gonzalez has now reached base safely in 21 straight games and has an American League-best .381 average in May to raise his impressive line to .299/.394/.632. The super-utility man also leads Houston with 30 RBI and is tied with George Springer with 11 long balls. Those are impressive numbers considering how potent Houston's lineup is with the best record in baseball. Gonzalez should continue to see playing time somewhere for the Astros if he keeps up this pace.
