McCormick is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Rays, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports. With Michael Brantley (knee) returning from the injured list Wednesday, McCormick will likely have to vie with Jose Siri and Jake Meyers for work in center field moving forward, while Brantley and Yordan Alvarez handle the left-field and designated-hitter spots. McCormick started in five of the past six games, going 6-for-20 with a walk, a run and an RBI.
McCormick is not in the lineup Tuesday against the Angels, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports. McCormick started the past three games and will head to the bench after going 4-for-13 with a solo home run, an additional run scored and a stolen base. Jose Siri will start in the outfield Tuesday for Houston.
McCormick went 1-for-4 with a solo home run Sunday in the Astros' 7-6 win over the Diamondbacks. Jose Siri and McCormick delivered back-to-back jacks in the eighth inning, with the latter's blast allowing Houston to reclaim the lead. McCormick finished the weekend with two starts in a row, but both he and Siri will see their playing time take a hit if Michael Brantley (knee) is able to make it back from the injured list later this week.
McCormick is not starting Friday against the Diamondbacks, Danielle Lerner of the Houston Chronicle reports. He's out of the lineup for the second game in a row despite hitting a two-run homer while coming off the bench Thursday. Jose Siri, Jake Meyers and Kyle Tucker are set to start in the outfield from left to right Friday.
McCormick went 1-for-1 with a two-run home run in a 12-1 victory over the Rangers on Thursday. McCormick entered as a defensive replacement for Kyle Tucker in the sixth inning and launched a two-run homer in his only at-bat in the eighth. The long ball was the 26-year-old's first since Aug. 6 and he now owns a .250/.309/.447 slash line in 94 games.
