Astros' Juan Centeno: To be optioned in favor of Brian McCann
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Centeno will be optioned to make room for the injured Brian McCann's return from the disabled list, Brian McTaggart of MLB.com reports.

Centeno went 3-for-7 with a pair of home runs over the past three days, but even that performance wasn't enough to save him from an option. Expect Centeno to be the Astros' first choice should they require an injury replacement behind the dish again.

Astros' Juan Centeno: Homers in first game as Astro
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Centeno went 2-for-3 with a walk, a home run and two runs scored in Tuesday's 6-2 win over the Tigers.

We anticipated Evan Gattis to be the primary fill-in when Brian McCann landed on the 7-day concussion list Sunday, so it was somewhat surprising to see Centeno in the lineup Tuesday. Centeno, who signed a minor-league deal with the Astros during the offseason, made a splash during his debut in a Houston uniform. He had no homers in 76 at-bats for Triple-A Fresno and just three in 237 previous at-bats in the majors. With McCann talking about coming back in the minimum seven days, Centeno's window is a short one, ending as early as Saturday.

Astros' Juan Centeno: Receives contract selection Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Centeno had his contract selected by the Astros on Sunday.

With Brian McCann being placed on the 7-day concussion disabled list Sunday, the team opted to purchase the contract of Centeno in order to get some depth at the major-league catching position. The 27-year-old has previous MLB experience with the Twins (55 games), Brewers (10 games) and Mets (14 games) over the previous four seasons. In 22 games with Triple-A Fresno this year, Centeno was hitting .368 with seven doubles and nine RBI.

Astros' Juan Centeno: Slated for Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Centeno is expected to begin the season at Triple-A Fresno and potentially become the Astros' third catcher in the event of an injury to either Brian McCann or Evan Gattis, Jake Kaplan of the Houston Chronicle reports.

When Houston designated catcher Max Stassi for assignment earlier this week, it barely registered on the transaction radar, but it meant something to Centeno. He and Stassi will be in the same boat at Fresno -- the Astros will have to select the contract of either player to be added to the 40-man roster. Neither have hit much -- Stassi from the right side, Centeno from the left -- with Centeno holding an edge in terms of major league experience.

Astros' Juan Centeno: Inks minor league deal with Astros
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Centeno signed a minor league deal with the Astros on Monday that includes an invitation to spring training, Jake Kaplan of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Centeno spent the 2016 season with the Twins, appearing in 55 games as the team's backup catcher. The 27-year-old slashed .261/.312/.392 in 192 plate appearances. As a career .236 hitter, Centeno figures to provide organizational catching depth with the Astros.
