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.

Astros' A.J. Reed: Ties for minors home run lead
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Reed hit his 31st and 32 home runs of the season Tuesday for Triple-A Fresno, tying him for the minor-league lead across all levels.

Reed has clearly mastered the Pacific Coast League and looks bound to receive a promotion to the Astros on Friday when rosters expand or soon after, but he likely won't be in store for much more than the occasional spot start or pinch-hitting opportunity during September. While he has significant upside as a power hitter, Reed has yet to tap into it at the major-league level, with his swing-and-miss tendencies proving to be a major obstacle. He's struck out in 33.3 percent of his 147 career plate appearances with the Astros.

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

Reed was sent back to Triple-A Fresno after Friday's game, Brian McTaggart of MLB.com reports.

Reed went 0-for-6 in a pair of appearances since his call-up on Monday. The second-rounder's time will come, but this Astros team is stacked with options to cover first base and designated hitter, so he'll go back to Fresno for regular at-bats.

Astros' A.J. Reed: Promoted to big leagues
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Reed was recalled from Triple-A Fresno on Monday.

Reed's long-term outlook dimmed quite a bit after he hit just .164 while striking out in 34 percent of his plate appearances with the Astros last season, but he still profiles as an above-average power source at the big-league level. The 24-year-old has maintained that reputation by slugging 22 home runs and 40 extra-base hits in total in 427 plate appearances with Fresno in 2017, which should at least make him a decent weapon off the bench for the Astros while he sticks around in the majors. With Yulieski Gurriel locked in as the everyday first baseman, however, Reed will be hard-pressed to pick up more than a start or two per week.

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

Reed was optioned to Triple-A Fresno on Tuesday, Jake Kaplan of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Though Reed enjoyed an excellent spring, slashing .306/.444./667 with four homers and 11 RBI over 36 at-bats in Grapefruit League play, the Astros didn't have a full-time role available for him with manager A.J. Hinch casting his lot with Yulieski Gurriel and Carlos Beltran at first base and DH, respectively, to begin the season. Despite the prospect hype surrounding him heading into last season, Reed was unable to translate his minor-league success into quality production in the big leagues, so it looks like he'll now have to bide his time in the minors and wait for an injury to open up another opportunity with the Astros.
