Astros' Nick Tanielu: Reassigned to minor-league camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tanielu was sent to minor-league camp Tuesday, Brian McTaggart of MLB.com reports.

Tanielu had a very strong camp, hitting .343 with four homers in 39 plate appearances. The Astros' roster is very tough to crack, though, and his minor-league numbers don't suggest he's anything special, as he posted a modest 96 wRC+ for Triple-A Fresno last season.

Astros' Nick Tanielu: Makes case for roster spot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tanielu is hitting .345 (10-for-29) with four home runs and 12 RBI this spring.

Tanielu is finally healthy after a torn ACL in his right knee (suffered while playing football) cost him all but two games in 2017. He returned in 2018 but was still feeling the effects of the injury, so he shed weight to take the pressure off the knee. Now, fully healthy, he's showing off in the Grapefruit League while playing both second and third base. There doesn't appear to be room on the major-league roster for the New Zealand native, but he's put himself in position for a callup if injuries hit Jose Altuve or Alex Bregman.
