Player Outlook
Chas McCormick set a new personal high with 457 plate appearances. He could have topped 500, but McCormick was sidelined for about a month early on with a back strain. His underlying metrics didn't change from 2022, but a deeper look reveals McCormick's fly ball average exit velocity increased 1.5 mph, manifesting more power, along with a higher BABIP. Not only did McCormick exhibit more power, but he also took advantage of the new rules with 19 steals in 25 attempts. In his first 727 plate appearances, McCormick swiped only eight bags in 13 tries. After being a bit below average with the glove the prior season, McCormick rebounded with an above average defensive campaign. The only yellow flag in McCormick's numbers is he has outperformed his expected batting average throughout his career. This could be due to Minute Maid Park, it could be something he does that isn't captured, but it can also be good fortune, so factor in some batting average regression. Even so, McCormick was one pilfer from a 20/20 campaign, and he has a great chance of joining the club this year.

  • Astros' Chas McCormick: Moves to bench Wednesday

    McCormick is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Cubs. McCormick will take a seat after he went a collective 5-for-14 with a pair of RBI, a urn and a stolen base over the past four games. Yordan Alvarez will fill in for McCormick as the Astros' starting left fielder.

  • Astros' Chas McCormick: Retreats to bench

    McCormick is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against Atlanta, Matt Kawahara of the Houston Chronicle reports. McCormick recently overcame a hamstring issue before starting in each of Houston's last three games, so his absence from the lineup Wednesday is most likely for maintenance purposes as the Astros and Atlanta close their series with an afternoon contest. With McCormick on the bench, the Astros will run out an outfield of Yordan Alvarez, Mauricio Dubon and Kyle Tucker from left to right.

  • Astros' Chas McCormick: Hopes to return Sunday

    McCormick (hamstring) is not in Saturday's lineup against the Rangers but he hopes to return Sunday, Chandler Rome of The Athletic reports. McCormick missed the first game of the series Friday with a sore right hamstring. He did full-speed running before Saturday's game and told reporters that he felt great, so it sounds like he'll avoid an IL stint.

  • Astros' Chas McCormick: Managing hamstring injury

    McCormick isn't starting Friday's game against Texas due to a hamstring injury, Brian McTaggart of MLB.com reports. McCormick is still available off the bench for Friday's contest, so his hamstring injury is likely minor. Mauricio Dubon will start in left field instead and bat seventh.

  • Astros' Chas McCormick: Getting breather Thursday

    McCormick is absent from the lineup for Thursday's game in Kansas City, Chandler Rome of The Athletic reports.

Yordan Alvarez is in left field Thursday while Yainer Diaz occupies the designated hitter spot.

  • Astros' Chas McCormick: Slow start to season

    McCormick went 1-for-3 Wednesday against the Royals. McCormick has remained in the Astros' lineup consistently, starting 12 of 13 games to begin the campaign. He's struggled quite a bit lately, collecting only two hits in his last 24 plate appearances. On the other hand, McCormick has only five strikeouts as opposed to four walks in that span, so his results should turn around.

  • Astros' Chas McCormick: Swipes first bag

    McCormick went 0-for-3 with a walk and a stolen base Friday against the Yankees. McCormick has only one hit across eight plate appearances early in the season, but he's still made an impact in the box score. He delivered a two-RBI single Opening Day and followed that up with his first stolen base of the year Friday. McCormick is expected to be an everyday player for the Astros and has made a pair of starts against lefties to this point.

  • Astros' Chas McCormick: Slated to be everyday player

    McCormick is expected to be an everyday player in 2024, Brian McTaggart of MLB.com reports. McCormick had a breakout season in 2023, posting a 133 wRC+ and .362 wOBA to go along with 22 home runs and 19 stolen bases. However, he was limited to only 457 plate appearances, in part because former manager Dusty Baker wanted to get Mauricio Dubon in the lineup regularly. That appears to be poised to change in 2024, with new manager Joe Espada voicing his support of McCormick as an everyday player.

  • Astros' Chas McCormick: Avoids arbitration

    McCormick agreed to a one-year, $2.85 million deal with the Astros on Thursday, avoiding arbitration, Chandler Rome of The Athletic reports. McCormick is coming off a breakout year where he slashed .273/.353/.489 with 22 home runs and 19 steals in 115 games. With good health, he should blow past the 457 plate appearances he saw last year, as he is also a strong defender, capable of playing all three spots in the outfield.

    McCormick is out of the lineup for Game 6 of the ALCS against the Rangers on Sunday, Chandler Rome of The Athletic reports.

  • Astros' Chas McCormick: Not in lineup for Game 3

  • Astros' Chas McCormick: Exits after HBP

    McCormick exited Tuesday's game against Seattle in the ninth inning after being hit in the back by a pitch, Matt Kawahara of the Houston Chronicle reports. McCormick was hit by a fastball from Andres Munoz and was helped off the field by a trainer as well as manager Dusty Baker. The Astros wrap up a series with Seattle on Wednesday before an off day Thursday, so it wouldn't be a surprise to see McCormick out of the lineup for at least one game.

  • Astros' Chas McCormick: Benefitting from Brantley's absence

    McCormick went 1-for-4 with a solo home run Saturday against the Royals. McCormick has started five consecutive games in left field, directly replacing Michael Brantley (soreness) in the lineup. He's responded by going yard twice and stealing a bag in that span. It's unclear how long Brantley may be sidelined, but McCormick should be productive in the meantime.

  • Astros' Chas McCormick: Goes yard in loss

    McCormick went 1-for-3 with a three-run homer and a walk in Friday's loss to the Royals. McCormick's eighth-inning blast cut Kansas City's lead to 7-5, but Houston's comeback attempt fell short. The 28-year-old outfielder is up to 21 home runs this season after knocking his first since Sept. 6. During that 12-game drought, he posted an ugly .479 OPS. McCormick is slashing .281/.362/.501 with 39 extra-base hits, 68 RBI and 19 stolen bases through 429 plate appearances.
