      Astros' Myles Straw: Blasts second career homer

      Myles Straw went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in an 8-4 win over Texas on Wednesday.Straw's fourth-inning long ball may have been overlooked in a game that featured eight homers, including two apiece by three different players, but it was significant in that it represented his first round-tripper since his 2018 rookie campaign. Straw's forte is clearly his speed, so fantasy managers who roster him should be doing so mostly for potential stolen bases. Straw has eight thefts in 12 attempts this season and has also contributed 26 runs, 23 RBI and nine doubles.

      Astros' Myles Straw: Settling in at CF

      Myles Straw went 2-for-3 with a walk, a double, an RBI and a stolen base in Sunday's 14-3 win over the Twins.Straw reached base three times in the win and is slowly raising his OBP. Over the last 28 games, the center fielder is 31-for-99 (.313) with an on-base percentage of .364. That's bumped him up to .328 for the season, up from .296 at the start of this recent stretch. His main goal entering the season was to get on base, and it looks like he's achieving that after a slow start. His other goal -- 50 steals -- appears to be unattainable at this point, as Straw has eight steals through 61 games.

      Astros' Myles Straw: Productive in Saturday's loss

      Myles Straw went 1-for-3 with a walk, two RBI and a stolen base in Saturday's 6-2 loss to the Blue Jays.The outfielder is in a bit of a groove at the plate, batting .286 (12-for-42) over the last 12 games with three RBI, six runs and two steals. Straw's lack of power and spot at the bottom of the Houston order put a significant damper on his fantasy ceiling, but in deep formats, his seven stolen bases on the year have some value.

      Astros' Myles Straw: Steal percentage dropping

      Myles Straw, who was thrown out while attempting to steal Friday, has been caught four times in nine attempts in 2021.Friday's caught-stealing was the third consecutive for Straw, who has not stolen a base during the month of May. As such, manager Dusty Baker wants him to consider changes to his baserunning strategies, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports. "To me, his jumps are good, but I think I've been talking to him about getting another step, another step on your lead," Baker said. "If you're getting back to first base too easily, or you never get picked off, that means your lead isn't large enough." Straw, who had two hits in Saturday's loss to San Diego but did not attempt a steal, set a preseason goal to swipe 50 bags.
