  • Astros' Zach Dezenzo: Still dealing with wrist issue

    Dezenzo (wrist) is opening the year on the injured list at Double-A Corpus Christi, Jim Callis of MLB.com reports.

    Dezenzo was limited all spring by a wrist injury, and while he appeared in a Spring Breakout game March 17, he's not ready to play every day for the Hooks. A big-bodied slugger who could end up at either corner-infield spot, Dezenzo had a .257/.339/.486 slash line with 14 home runs and a 28.5 percent strikeout rate in 63 games as a 23-year-old at Double-A last season. Callis reports that Dezenzo should be ready to play in the near future.

  • Astros' Zach Dezenzo: Starting in Spring Breakout game

    Dezenzo (wrist) will start at third base and bat eighth Sunday in the Astros' Spring Breakout game against the Cardinals.

    Dezenzo hadn't appeared in any Grapefruit League games for the Astros since March 1 while he managed a sore wrist, but his ongoing absence may have been more a byproduct of him not being a realistic candidate to crack Houston's Opening Day roster rather than due to concern about his health. The 23-year-old will be back in action Sunday in a game exclusively featuring prospects and should continue to play in minor-league games on the backfields of camp over the next couple of weeks as he prepares himself for the start of the minor-league season. He'll likely open the 2024 campaign with either Double-A Corpus Christi or Triple-A Sugar Land.

  • Astros' Zach Dezenzo: Limited by wrist injury

    Dezenzo is able to play the field but cannot hit in games due to a wrist injury, Brian McTaggart of MLB.com reports.

    It's not clear when he might be ready to swing the bat. Dezenzo, 23, finished last season at Double-A Corpus Christi and might be ready to move up to Triple-A Sugar Land to start 2024, if healthy. He had a breakout 2023 campaign, posting a .914 OPS with 18 homers and 22 steals between High- and Double-A.

  • Astros' Zach Dezenzo: Leveling off at Double-A

    Dezenzo is slashing .254/.339/.484 with 12 home runs, 16 steals and a 28.9 percent strikeout rate in 55 games for Double-A Corpus Christi.

    A 6-foot-4, 220-pound third baseman, Dezenzo's plus power potential is alluring. However, his run earlier this season at High-A Asheville stands out as a pretty clear outlier. He rode a .494 BABIP to a .407/.474/.628 slash line while being old for the level (turned 23 in May) and playing half his games in a very hitter-friendly park. There is still a chance he outgrows third base and never develops a fringe-average hit tool, which would make it difficult for him to get steady playing time for a first-division team like Houston.

  • Astros' Zach Dezenzo: Promoted to Double-A

    Dezenzo has gone 2-for-6 with a pair of walks and two runs scored in his first two games since being promoted from High-A Asheville to Double-A Corpus Christi on Friday.

    Dezenzo earned his way to the Texas League after slashing .407/.474/.628 with 16 extra-base hits and six stolen bases in 133 plate appearances for Asheville. The 23-year-old should get the chance to play on an everyday basis in the Corpus Christi middle infield while fellow prospect Will Wagner (wrist) is on the shelf.
