    • Astros' Yuli Gurriel: Goes yard in grand style
      By RotoWire Staff

      Gurriel went 3-for-5 with a grand slam in Friday's 10-6 win over the Mariners. Gurriel's eighth-inning home run gave Houston insurance runs as it held on against the pesky Mariners. The homer was Gurriel's first of the season, but the 34-year-old has been putting a charge into the ball early on. Eight of his 15 hits have gone for extra bases and his .531 slugging and .225 ISO are career bests.

    • Astros' Yuli Gurriel: Receives planned rest
      By RotoWire Staff

      Gurriel is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Athletics, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports. Manager AJ Hinch relayed shortly after the lineup was released that Gurriel's absence is merely a planned rest day. With the 34-year-old heading to the bench for the series finale, utility man Aledmys Diaz will enter the lineup and make his first MLB start at first base.

    • Gurriel went 3-for-4 with three doubles and an RBI in Saturday's 6-0 win over the A's. While the 34-year-old is still looking for his first home run in 2019, he's had no problem putting a charge in the ball -- five of his 10 hits so far have been two-baggers, leading to a .303/.361/.455 slash line. Gurriel's fantasy ceiling is limited due to his lack of true over-the-fence power, but he still offers solid value in deeper formats.

    • Astros' Yuli Gurriel: Has quiet opening week
      By RotoWire Staff

      Gurriel went 0-for-3 with a walk in Wednesday's 4-0 loss to Texas. Gurriel, like many of Houston's regulars, is having a quiet to start the season. He's hitting .240 (6-for-25), which is higher than Jose Altuve (.222), Michael Brantley (.208) and Alex Bregman (.208). Those three players hit in front of Gurriel, so given that, it's not surprising he hasn't knocked in a run yet. The Astros have scored just 15 runs through seven games.

    • Gurriel went 1-for-2 with a solo home run and a walk in Friday's game against the Mets. The homer was Gurriel's first of what has been a stellar spring. He started out hot and hasn't let up, posting a .371 average and 1.036 OPS over 35 at-bats. Manager AJ Hinch plans to move him around the infield, much as did last season, so Gurriel may bring position versatility to fantasy lineups. His bat doesn't profile as powerful as a traditional corner infielder, but he'll be helpful for roster construction if he's qualified at middle infield (15 starts at 2B in 2018).
