Astros' Michael Brantley: Resting Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brantley is not starting Friday against the Rangers.

Brantley owns an excellent .421/.465/.658 slash line over his last 10 games. He'll get a rest Friday with Tony Kemp starting in left field.

Astros' Michael Brantley: Homers in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brantley went 1-for-3 with a two-run home run and another run scored in Wednesday's 11-2 rout of the Angels.

Brantley got the Astros on the board by swatting his 100th career home run, a two-run shot off Felix Pena in the first inning. He then scored again in the fifth after getting hit by a pitch. It's just business as usual for the veteran outfielder, who is now slashing .324/.382/.508 with 13 home runs, 51 RBI and 51 runs scored.

Astros' Michael Brantley: Heads to bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brantley isn't starting Monday's game against the Angels, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Brantley picked up a pair of hits and an RBI in Sunday's matchup with the Rangers, but he'll take a seat for Monday's series opener. Tony Kemp will man left field and hit eighth in Brantley's stead.

Astros' Michael Brantley: Has two hits, RBI in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brantley went 2-for-5 with a walk, a double, an RBI and a run scored in Sunday's 12-4 win over Texas.

Brantley has reached base safely in 12 straight games, posting a .360/.411/.500 slash line during that stretch. He's enjoying his finest season since 2014 while sitting in the middle of the Astros' batting order and leads the team with a .324 batting average.

Astros' Michael Brantley: Scores three runs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brantley went 4-for-6 with three runs scored in Sunday's 11-10 win over the Angels.

Brantley enjoyed a nice weekend before the All-Star break, going 8-for-10 with six runs scored and three extra-base hits over the last two games. The 32-year-old boosted his OPS to .894 with 48 runs scored.

Astros' Michael Brantley: Back in action at DH
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brantley (hamstring) will serve as the Astros' designated hitter and bat cleanup Sunday against the Angels, Brent Zwerneman of the Houston Chronicle reports.

After going 4-for-4 in the series opener Friday, Brantley received Saturday off while managing a sore right hamstring. The Astros' decision to include Brantley in the lineup in the final contest before the All-Star break implies that the team isn't concerned about the injury. Josh Reddick will bow out of the lineup to make room for Brantley.

Astros' Michael Brantley: Nursing sore hamstring
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brantley is out of the lineup for Saturday's game against the Angels with a sore right hamstring, Brent Zwerneman of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Manager AJ Hinch said Brantley may be available off the bench and could rejoin the lineup Sunday, so it doesn't appear to be a serious issue. Still, the Astros are likely to remain cautious with the All-Star break set to begin Monday. Josh Reddick is starting in left field Saturday in his place.

Astros' Michael Brantley: Resting Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brantley is out of the lineup against the Angels on Saturday.

Brantley will sit with lefty Andrew Heaney on the mound for the Angels. He sat against the last lefty the Astros faced as well but hasn't generally been platooned this season, so he likely won't be stuck on the bench for two straight games even with another lefty (Jose Suarez) scheduled to start Sunday. Josh Reddick will start in left field in his absence.

Astros' Michael Brantley: Huge night in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brantley went 4-for-4 with two doubles, a solo home run and two additional runs scored in Friday's 5-4 loss to the Angels.

The 32-year-old went yard for the first time since June 19, but he remains on pace for a career-best campaign. Brantley is now slashing .318/.378/.508 with 12 homers, 45 runs and 46 RBI through 83 games, and he's been one of the few healthy constants in the Houston lineup -- a remarkable turnaround for a player who averaged only 95 games a year over his last four seasons in Cleveland.

Astros' Michael Brantley: Gets day off
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brantley is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Mariners, Brian McTaggart of MLB.com reports.

The fact that the Astros are opposing a lefty pitcher (Marco Gonzales) in addition to wrapping up their series with a day game are likely manager AJ Hinch's main motivations for withholding Brantley from the starting nine. The veteran will head to the bench for the first time since June 9 while Tony Kemp checks in for him in left field.

Astros' Michael Brantley: Goes 3-for-4 again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brantley went 3-for-4 with a two-run home run in a 3-2 loss against the Reds on Wednesday.

It looked like Brantley's two-run blast was going to hold up, but the Reds came back in the bottom of the ninth to win. Still, owners have to be pleased with Brantley's series in Cincinnati, where he went 7-for-13 (.538) with three extra-base hits in three games. Overall, he is batting .321 with 11 home runs, 42 RBI, 36 runs and three steals in 277 at-bats this season.

Astros' Michael Brantley: Stays consistent
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brantley went 3-for-4 with a double and a run scored in Tuesday's 4-3 loss to the Reds.

Brantley has been Mr. Consistent for the Astros. Since a five-game run without a hit between March 31 and April 5, he hasn't gone hitless in more than two straight contests and leads the team with a .315 batting average.

June 9, 2019 01:28 PM
Astros' Michael Brantley: Gets day off
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brantley is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Orioles, Brian McTaggart of MLB.com reports.

Manager AJ Hinch will hold Brantley out for the day game after the night game, even though the veteran just picked up a breather Monday in Seattle. Brantley's move to the bench may have been influenced in part by his 0-for-9 showing in the first two games. It was just the second time since April 5 the smooth-swinging outfielder failed to record a hit in back-to-back games.

Astros' Michael Brantley: Out vs. lefty
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brantley isn't in the starting lineup for Monday's game against the Mariners, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Brantley will head to the bench with lefty Wade LeBlanc set to serve as the primary pitcher Monday evening. Josh Reddick is slated to slot in as the designated hitter and will hit third in Brantley's place.

May 24, 2019 04:44 PM
Astros' Michael Brantley: Sitting Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brantley is not in the lineup Friday against Boston, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Brantley hits the bench after making 13 straight starts. George Springer returns from his back injury in right field, pushing Josh Reddick to left, though Brantley should continue to play a regular role as the Astros use the designated hitter spot to make room for their outfield depth.

May 19, 2019 10:08 AM
Astros' Michael Brantley: Another multi-hit effort
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brantley went 3-for-5 with a double, an RBI and a run scored in Saturday's 7-3 win over Boston.

Brantley's first-inning double snapped a string of seven at-bats without a hit. In the last 12 games in which he's hit safely, Brantley has posted multiple hits 10 times. He's raised his season average to .331, which ranks tied for fifth in MLB.

May 12, 2019 07:48 AM
Astros' Michael Brantley: Swats 10th homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brantley went 2-for-5 with a solo home run and two additional runs scored in Saturday's 11-4 rout of the Rangers.

The former Cleveland outfielder continues to thrive in the heart of the Houston order. Brantley is now slashing .340/.387/.607 through 39 games with 10 homers, three steals, 25 runs and 29 RBI.

Astros' Michael Brantley: Hits bench after big game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brantley is not in the lineup Thursday against the Rangers, Brian McTaggart of MLB.com reports.

Brantley will head to the bench for what appears to be a regular day off against left-hander Mike Minor following a string of six straight starts. The veteran outfielder has been on a tear over his last 15 games, slashing .387/.415/.758 with six homers and 13 RBI over that stretch. In his absence, Josh Reddick and George Springer are starting in the corner outfield spots, with Jake Marisnick getting the nod in center.

May 8, 2019 11:48 PM
Astros' Michael Brantley: Goes deep twice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brantley went 2-for-3 with two home runs, one walk and three RBI in a 9-0 win over the Royals on Wednesday.

Brantley took Jorge Lopez deep for a two-run shot in the third inning and hit another solo home run in the fourth inning. He has been on an absolute tear this season with a .340/.386/.603 slash line through 36 games.

May 5, 2019 07:56 PM
Astros' Michael Brantley: Hot streak continues
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brantley went 2-for-5 with a two-run homer, a double and two runs scored in Sunday's 10-4 win over the Angels.

Brantley clocked his two-run shot in the ninth inning to give Houston a 10-4 lead just for good measure. The first-year Astro started April by going 0-for-15 in his first four games. Since then, he's gone 39-for-103 with 14 extra-base hits and 20 RBI.
