Astros' Myles Straw: Enters for injured Reddick
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Straw entered Sunday's game after Josh Reddick left with an elbow injury. He went 0-for-1 in a 9-5 loss to the Angels.

George Springer moved from center field to right while Straw took over for Springer after Reddick left in the sixth inning. It's unclear how much time Reddick will miss with what's being described as a contusion.

Astros' Myles Straw: Plays both ends of doubleheader
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Straw went 1-for-8 with an RBI over both games of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Angels.

Straw filled in at center field for the injured George Springer (elbow), who is limited to defensive duty only. With Wednesday's series finale postponed due to an approaching hurricane and a scheduled off day Thursday, Springer will have three days to heal before Friday's series opener against Oakland.

Astros' Myles Straw: Fills in for Springer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Straw entered Monday's game after George Springer was removed due to an elbow injury. He went 1-for-1 with a double, two RBI and a run scored in an 11-4 win over the Angels.

Springer was plunked by a pitch on the elbow during the sixth inning and was removed from game. Straw entered as a pinch runner and scored a run, then roped a two-run double an inning later. With a doubleheader scheduled Tuesday and Springer unlikely to play, Straw is in line for two games' worth of plate appearances.

Astros' Myles Straw: Records fifth steal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Straw went 2-for-3 with an RBI double, a stolen base and a walk in Friday's 4-3 loss to the Padres.

The speedy Straw reached on an infield single and stole second in the second inning. In the sixth, he plated Taylor Jones with a double. Straw attempted another steal in the eighth, but he was caught that time. He's now 5-for-7 in stolen base attempts, to go with four RBI and three runs scored across 49 plate appearances.

Astros' Myles Straw: Fills in for Springer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Straw was a late addition to the starting lineup Tuesday after George Springer (wrist) was scratched. He went 2-for-5 with a stolen base and an RBI in a 2-1 win over Colorado.

Straw's addition was fortuitous, as he delivered the game-winning run in the bottom of the 11th inning. It was the third RBI for Straw, who is batting .167 with a .389 OPS over 45 plate appearances. With Springer's wrist acting up and Michael Brantley (quadriceps) on the injured list, Straw may get a steady stream of at-bats in the short term as an outfielder.

Astros' Myles Straw: Returns to bench role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Straw is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Mariners, Julia Morales of AT&T SportsNet Southwest reports.

Prior to the series with Seattle, Straw had started in center field in the Astros' preceding six contests, but he'll likely be on the bench on a more permanent basis moving forward now that George Springer has been able to move past a wrist injury. Straw should still rank as manager Dusty Baker's preferred pinch-running option off the bench, but his lack of consistent at-bats will make it tough to roster him outside of AL-only formats.

Astros' Myles Straw: Starts Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Straw started in place of the injured George Springer (wrist) in Friday's extra-innings loss to the Athletics. He went 1-for-5 and batted eighth.

Springer received good news Friday when an MRI revealed he did not suffer a fracture. Houston manager Dusty Baker described Springer as day-to-day but did not offer any hints to his availability for the weekend. Straw may remain a starter in center field until Springer is ready to resume action.

Astros' Myles Straw: Replaces injured Springer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Straw entered Thursday's game for an injured George Springer, who left with a strained wrist. He went 0-for-1.

Springer sustained the wrist strain in the fourth inning when he laid out to snare a line drive. He stayed in the game but eventually was removed in the seventh. Houston manager Dusty Baker was not optimistic about Springer's availability for Friday's series opener in Oakland, according to Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle, so Straw could enter the lineup in center field. He has three stolen bases in just 12 plate appearances, so there's always a chance Straw provides value as a fill-in.

Astros' Myles Straw: Steals two bases
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Straw went 1-for-5 with an RBI and two stolen bases in Wednesday's 4-2 extra-innings loss to the Dodgers.

Straw started in center field in place of George Springer, who has a sore knee and entered the game 1-for-20 overall. Springer, who entered as a pinch hitter during Wednesday's game, gets the benefit of a team day off Thursday and could return in time for Friday's series opener in Los Angeles against the Dodgers. Straw's biggest asset is his speed, which could be a factor for fantasy teams if he were to receive more consistent playing time.

Astros' Myles Straw: Returns from hamstring issue
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Straw is starting in center field and batting eighth Wednesday against the Dodgers in place of George Springer (knee soreness), Brian McTaggart of MLB.com reports.

Straw, who is probably the fastest player on the team, had not made his season debut due to a hamstring issue, according to Brian McTaggart of MLB.com. It's good to know there was a reason for his absence, as he seemed poised for a super utility role this season. If Springer needs more than Wednesday and Thursday (scheduled off day) off, Straw could continue to start in center field.

Astros' Myles Straw: Back in action
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Straw is starting in center field and leading off in Sunday's intrasquad game, Brian McTaggart of MLB.com reports.

He had been absent from camp for almost a week as he awaited the results of a COVID-19 test, but he presumably tested negative and is back in game action. Straw should serve in a super-utility role this season and could be a solid source of steals, batting average and on-base percentage on a part-time basis.

Astros' Myles Straw: Absent Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Straw was unable to participate in Tuesday's workout while awaiting COVID-19 test results, Brian McTaggart of MLB.com reports.

Barring a positive result, Straw is expected to be part of the Astros' 30-man active roster on Opening Day next week.

Astros' Myles Straw: Invited to summer camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Straw has been added to the Astros' 60-man player pool.

Straw had been considered on the roster bubble during spring training, but the expanded roster makes him a likely inclusion to start the season. The question then becomes whether he remains on the active roster in the weeks following the opening of the season, when rosters are reduced from 30 to 28, then 28 to 26. Houston will have Yordan Alvarez and prospect Kyle Tucker as spare outfielders, which could preclude Straw from being on the final 26-man roster. Alvarez, however, is not good defensively and will serve as the primary designated hitter, so there might be space for Straw, who can also play the infield.

Astros' Myles Straw: In line for expanded roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Straw is expected to serve as a reserve outfielder for the Astros, Brian McTaggart of MLB.com reports.

When the Astros traded Jake Marisnick to the Mets during the offseason, an opportunity swung wide open for Straw, who brings a few skills to the roster. His 30.1 feet-per-second sprint speed was the fourth fastest in the big leagues last season -- he also went 8-for-9 when attempting to steal -- and he's considered a good defensive replacement option. Additionally, Straw adds positional versatility. He made his first MLB appearances on the infield in 2019, playing 26 games at shortstop and four games at second base.

Astros' Myles Straw: Team HR leader
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Straw led the Astros this spring with three home runs and tied for the team lead with five RBI. He went 9-for-21 with three walks and seven runs scored (.429/.500/.857) over 11 spring games.

Teammates lauded Straw for the way he pulled the ball during Grapefruit League action, Brian McTaggart of MLB.com reports. Known for his speed, Straw drove the ball better this spring than in the past. He will take over the spot as the fourth outfielder, a role that was occupied by Jake Marisnick in 2019, and he added shortstop to his portfolio last season.

Astros' Myles Straw: Rare show of power
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Straw went 2-for-3 with two home runs and three RBI in Wednesday's spring game against the Cardinals.

Straw is known for his legs, not his power, so Wednesday's show was a rare sight. The 25-year-old has a total of five home runs and 180 stolen bases over five seasons. He's had some experience in the majors, including 56 games (eight steals in nine attempts) in 2019, and is poised to become the departed Jake Marisnick's replacement. If Straw is able to secure an Opening Day roster spot, it will give the Astros a fourth outfielder with speed that also has the ability to play the infield.

Astros' Myles Straw: Left off roster for ALCS
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Straw is not on the roster for the ALCS, Brian McTaggart of MLB.com reports.

Straw was available off the bench for the ALDS, but will now miss the ALCS as the Astros added an extra arm to their bullpen. The 24-year-old did not make an appearance during the ALDS despite his pinch-running abilities.

Astros' Myles Straw: Piles up runs off bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Straw went 3-for-3 with an RBI and three runs Sunday in the Astros' 21-1 win over the Mariners.

Straw managed to put together a nice box-score line in only four innings' worth of action, a testament to how soundly the Astros thumped the Mariners in the series finale. The 24-year-old isn't expected to see many starts in September, but he'll likely rank as the Astros' top pinch-running option and could provide some useful stolen-base production for fantasy managers in deeper mixed and AL-only leagues.

Astros' Myles Straw: Back with big club
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Straw was recalled from Triple-A Round Rock on Thursday, Julia Morales of AT&T SportsNet Southwest reports.

Straw is back with the Astros after spending the minimum 10 days in the minors. The 24-year-old, who is slashing .233/.353/.291 with seven stolen bases in 43 games with the big club this season, will likely serve as a bench bat and pinch runner for the stretch run.

August 27, 2019 06:52 PM
Astros' Myles Straw: Sent back to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Straw was optioned to Triple-A on Tuesday, Jake Kaplan of The Athletic reports.

Straw's latest stay in the big leagues lasted less than a week. He's hit .233/.353/.291 in 103 plate appearances at the big-league level this season. Aledmys Diaz (head) returned from the injured list in a corresponding move.
