Astros' A.J. Reed: Optioned to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Reed was optioned to Triple-A Fresno on Monday, Jake Kaplan of The Athletic Houston reports.

Reed was in the mix for one of the final roster spots after Yulieski Gurriel (hand) was ruled out for the start of the season. The 24-year-old put up a good fight for the role, batting .298 with two homers, four RBI and eight runs scored, but it ultimately wasn't enough to earn the spot. Reed will now turn his focus to getting ready for the Triple-A season while J.D. Davis and Tyler White duke it out for the final roster spot.

Astros' A.J. Reed: Homers for second straight game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Reed went 2-for-4 with a home run and two RBI in Tuesday's game against the Nationals.

Reed's homered in two straight games, but is hitting just .174 through nine spring games. He continues to battle with J.D. Davis (.455, two HR) and Tyler White (.188) for the opportunity to fill in for Yulieski Gurriel, who will be out until mid-to-late April with a hand injury. Marwin Gonzalez will likely factor in at first base as well.

Astros' A.J. Reed: Starts at first Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Reed went 0-for-4 with three strikeouts in Wednesday's game against Minnesota.

Reed got the start at first base on the day it was announced Yulieski Gurriel underwent surgery on his left hand. Reed is one of several players in competition to fill in for Gurriel, who is expected to be out until mid-to-late April at the earliest. Being that it's a hand injury and understanding his swing could be impacted, that timeline could push out until May. Reed has the body and the bat to be a first baseman, but his MLB track record is wanting. In the coming weeks, expect to see Tyler White and J.D. Davis get time at first, although when Houston breaks camp, there's a good chance Marwin Gonzalez will be the primary starter at first.

Astros' A.J. Reed: Regular playing time at 1B to start season?
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Reed could see regular playing time at first base to start the season following the news of Yulieski Gurriel's (hand) surgery, Jake Kaplan of The Athletic Houston reports.

Reed mashed 34 homers at Triple-A Fresno last season, but he only appeared in the majors for two games, going 0-for-6 in those contests. This could've been big news for him given the potency of the rest of Houston's lineup, but expectations should be tempered. Gurriel is only expected to miss the first couple weeks of the season, so Reed wouldn't even get that much extra playing time. Additionally, J.D. Davis and Tyler White are also competing for the spot, making it even tougher for Reed to make an impact.

Astros' A.J. Reed: In contention for Opening Day roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Reed has a chance to win a roster spot to start the season, the Astros official site reports.

Reed hit .261/.358/.525 at Triple-A Fresno last season but received just six plate appearances for the big-league club. With Yuli Gurriel starting the season with a five-game suspension, a spot could be open for Reed, at least for the first few games of the year. The Astros have Evan Gattis holding down the designated hitter spot and Marwin Gonzalez perfectly capable of filling in at first base, though, so Reed will have to impress to stick on the roster.
