Astros' Myles Straw: Blasts first MLB homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Straw went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in a 5-2 win over Baltimore in the nightcap of Saturday's doubleheader.

The home run was the first of Straw's MLB career and came in his second start since having his contract purchased Sept. 15. The rookie's speed may be an element that manager A.J. Hinch wants in the postseason, perhaps more so than third catcher Max Stassi.

Astros' Myles Straw: Contract selected by Astros
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Straw had his contract purchased by the Astros on Saturday.

Straw slashed .257/.349/.317 with 35 stolen bases in 38 attempts after his promotion to Triple-A Fresno in mid-June. The 23-year-old is unlikely to work his way into the Astros' outfield rotation, but he could be a late-inning pinch runner given his baserunning prowess in the minors.

Astros' Myles Straw: Heading to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Straw was promoted to Triple-A Fresno on Saturday.

Straw had a strong start to the season for Double-A Corpus Christi, hitting .327/.414/.390, with 35 steals in 65 games. He makes a lot of contact and can do damage on the bases, but his near complete lack of power (just three career homers in four minor-league seasons) makes him likely no more than a bench outfielder at the big-league level.

Astros' Myles Straw: Tearing up Texas League pitching
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Straw, 23, maintains a .360/.455/.433 batting line and has gone 31-for-36 on stolen-base attempts over 215 plate appearances at Double-A Corpus Christi this season.

With 81 steals in parts of three professional seasons entering 2018, Straw's aptitude as a baserunner has never been in question, but a dearth of power and modest hit tool dimmed the 23-year-old's outlook. At least in the latter area, Straw has demonstrated major growth in his first full season in the Texas League, as the outfielder has exhibited exceptional bat-to-ball skills (13.0 K%) while continuing to walk at a high rate. Unless Straw ends up tapping into more power, it's unlikely that he'll ever emerge as an everyday player in the majors, but the skills he currently possesses might be enough for him to become a quality bench option down the line.
