Astros' Yuli Gurriel: Agrees to new contract
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gurriel signed a one-year, $8.3 million contract with the Astros on Monday, Bob Nightengale of USA Today reports.

Gurriel's previous contract ran through 2021, but he will now avoid arbitration and be eligible to enter free agency at the end of 2020. The 35-year-old had a career-high .884 OPS with 31 home runs and 104 RBI last season.

Astros' Yuli Gurriel: Set for day off
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gurriel is expected to be out of the lineup for Thursday's game against the Angels, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Gurriel started nine of the last 10 games and will head to the bench with the Astros set to arrive in Los Angeles early Thursday morning. The 35-year-old has slowed down in September with a .747 OPS and three homers in 13 games as he missed some time with a hamstring injury.

Astros' Yuli Gurriel: Returns to lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gurriel (illness) is back in the lineup for Saturday's game against the Angels, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports.

A stomach illness led to Gurriel being scratched from Friday's lineup, but he's good to go a day later. The 35-year-old will look to make it four consecutive games with a home run when he faces off against Patrick Sandoval and company.

Astros' Yuli Gurriel: Scratched with illness
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gurriel was scratched from Friday's lineup against the Angels due to a stomach illness, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports.

This doesn't sound like anything too serious, so those in leagues with weekend lineup changes will likely want to stay with Gurriel unless they have a strong alternative. Gurriel missed some time earlier this month with a hamstring issue, but he's returned with a vengeance, going 7-for-23 with home runs in each of his last three games.

Astros' Yuli Gurriel: Leaves yard in third straight
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gurriel went 2-for-3 with a home run, a walk and two RBI in Wednesday's 3-2 win over the Rangers.

With three home runs in as many games, Gurriel is now up to 30 on the season, becoming the third Astros player to reach that mark. The 35-year-old has enjoyed one of the more notable power spikes of any player in the majors in 2019, as he's now just four homers shy of matching his output from the previous three seasons combined.

Astros' Yuli Gurriel: Smacks 29th home run
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gurriel went 2-for-4 with a home run, an RBI and two runs scored in the Astros' 12-3 win over the Royals on Sunday.

Gurriel finally got going Sunday in his third game back from a brief hamstring injury. He had gone 1-for-10 in his return from the absence, and it was only a matter of time before he got his bat going again. Gurriel is slashing .303/.347/.543 with a career-best 28 home runs and 99 RBI across 577 plate appearances. He figures to draw the start once again at first base when the Astros take on the Rangers on Tuesday in Houston.

Astros' Yuli Gurriel: Returns from injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gurriel (hamstring) is back in the lineup Friday against the Royals, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Gurriel will wind up missing a week with a minor hamstring injury. Initial reports expected him back Tuesday or Wednesday, but he ended up needing a few more days to recover. He'll bat fifth and play first base in his return to the lineup.

September 13, 2019 01:28 PM
Astros' Yuli Gurriel: Runs bases Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gurriel (hamstring) ran through a set of baserunning scenarios Thursday, David Barron of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Gurriel is ramping up for a potential return to the starting lineup Friday against Kansas City. "I would expect him to recover fine from (Thursday's work)," said manager AJ Hinch. "We needed to see that, simulating things like stopping abruptly coming around third, turning a base hit into a double. He was running hard, and if he responds well to the downtime, I would expect him to be back in the lineup (Friday)." Gurriel has been sidelined since last Friday as Aledmys Diaz has filled in for the injured first baseman.

Astros' Yuli Gurriel: Out as expected
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gurriel (hamstring) is not in the lineup Thursday against the Athletics, Brian McTaggart of MLB.com reports.

As expected, Gurriel will miss a sixth straight game as he continues to deal with a hamstring injury he picked up last week. According to Jake Kaplan of The Athletic, he's expected to rejoin the lineup for Friday's series opener against the Royals. In the meantime, Aledmys Diaz is once again starting at first base in his place Wednesday.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Astros' Yuli Gurriel: Goes through workout Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gurriel (hamstring), who is not in the lineup Monday against the Athletics, ran at 85 percent and fielded grounders during pregame warmups, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Gurriel is expected to repeat that pregame routine Tuesday before the Astros determine his availability for the remainder of the team's series vs. Oakland. Aledmys Diaz is once again starting at first base for the 35-year-old, who has been sidelined since Friday with left hamstring discomfort.

Astros' Yuli Gurriel: Testing hamstring Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gurriel exited Friday's game against the Mariners with left hamstring discomfort and has been shut down for the weekend. Aledmys Diaz has covered for him at first base, but it doesn't sound as though he's expected to miss too many more games.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Astros' Yuli Gurriel: Back in action
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gurriel (elbow) is back in action Monday against Milwaukee, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Gurriel was scratched Sunday with a left elbow contusion, but the injury evidently wasn't particularly serious. Even with the lineup being one man short in a National League park, Gurriel will bat sixth and play first base.

September 1, 2019 12:00 PM
Astros' Yuli Gurriel: Scratched with elbow concern
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Astros scratched Gurriel from their lineup for Sunday's game against the Blue Jays due to a left elbow contusion, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Gurriel reached base four times in Saturday's 6-4 loss, recording a double, single and walk and also getting plunked by a pitch. The pitch did strike Gurriel on the left elbow, so he's presumably managing some soreness and was likely pulled from the starting nine as a precaution. The Astros should provide an update on Gurriel's condition prior to the team's two-game set in Milwaukee that begins Monday.
