McCormick is not in the lineup Tuesday against the Angels, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports.
McCormick started the past three games and will head to the bench after going 4-for-13 with a solo home run, an additional run scored and a stolen base. Jose Siri will start in the outfield Tuesday for Houston.
McCormick went 1-for-4 with a solo home run Sunday in the Astros' 7-6 win over the Diamondbacks.
Jose Siri and McCormick delivered back-to-back jacks in the eighth inning, with the latter's blast allowing Houston to reclaim the lead. McCormick finished the weekend with two starts in a row, but both he and Siri will see their playing time take a hit if Michael Brantley (knee) is able to make it back from the injured list later this week.
McCormick is not starting Friday against the Diamondbacks, Danielle Lerner of the Houston Chronicle reports.
He's out of the lineup for the second game in a row despite hitting a two-run homer while coming off the bench Thursday. Jose Siri, Jake Meyers and Kyle Tucker are set to start in the outfield from left to right Friday.
McCormick went 1-for-1 with a two-run home run in a 12-1 victory over the Rangers on Thursday.
McCormick entered as a defensive replacement for Kyle Tucker in the sixth inning and launched a two-run homer in his only at-bat in the eighth. The long ball was the 26-year-old's first since Aug. 6 and he now owns a .250/.309/.447 slash line in 94 games.
McCormick is out of the lineup Thursday versus the Rangers.
The 26-year-old had started three of the last four games with Michael Brantley (knee) out of the lineup. He drove in two runs Wednesday, his first game with an RBI since returning from the 10-day injured list on Sept. 3. Jake Meyers shifts over to left field as Jose Siri will bat seventh and start in center field.
McCormick started in left field and went 1-for-4 with two RBI in Wednesday's 7-2 win over the Rangers.
McCormick delivered a two-run single with the bases loaded in the fourth inning, snapping a 10-game RBI drought. He's started both games the team has been without Michael Brantley (knee), who was added to the injured list Wednesday. With Brantley unavailable, both McCormick and Jake Meyers could be lineup regulars for the near future. Both started Wednesday and combined to go 3-for-8 with a home run and four RBI. Jose Siri is also in the mix for at-bats.
McCormick started in left field and went 0-for-3 in Tuesday's 8-1 loss to the Rangers.
McCormick got the start in place of primary left fielder Michael Brantley, who is out until at least Friday due to a balky knee. Brantley's absence will lead to a playing time shuffle among McCormick, Jake Meyers and Jose Siri (who started in center field Tuesday). McCormick has just two hits over the 20 at-bats since returning from a hand injury.
McCormick will sit Monday against Seattle, Brian McTaggart of MLB.com reports.
McCormick started Friday in his return from a hand injury but has now been on the bench for three straight games. Jake Meyers remains the starter in center field.
McCormick is not starting Sunday's game against the Padres, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports.
McCormick has appeared in two games since returning from the injured list and has gone 0-for-4 with a pair of strikeouts. Jake Meyers starts in center field and bats seventh Sunday.
McCormick entered Saturday's game after Yordan Alvarez fouled a ball off his knee. He finished up Alvarez's at-bat and went 0-for-1 the rest of the way in Saturday's 10-2 loss to the Padres.
The Astros are hopeful the injury is not serious -- X-rays came back negative -- so it doesn't look like they'll need a fill-in for a significant amount of games. McCormick or Jake Meyers stand ready should Alvarez's knee contusion needs multiple days.
McCormick will sit Saturday in San Diego, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports.
McCormick and Jake Meyers are expected to split time in center field down the stretch, though it will be Kyle Tucker who starts there on this occasion. Michael Brantley slides to Tucker's usual spot in right field, with Yordan Alvarez moving out to left field due to the lack of a designated hitter under National League rules.
McCormick and Jake Meyers will share playing time in center field throughout the month of September, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports.
McCormick, who was reinstated off the injured list Friday, went 0-for-3 as the starter in a win over the Padres in San Diego. Both McCormick and Meyers bat from the right side, so matchups are determined by other factors, per Houston manager Dusty Baker. "If we need more of a defensive presence in the outfield, if we need an offensive presence or a combination of the two and the matchup -- who I can think can hit a high fastball or who is a better breaking ball hitter. A lot is going to go into the decision," Baker said. It sounds like fantasy managers will need to diligently follow the center field situation. Neither player will be starting Saturday, as Baker wants to get Yordan Alvarez's bat in the lineup in left field while playing in an NL city. The domino effect of that will have Michael Brantley shift to right field with Kyle Tucker in center.
McCormick (hand) was reinstated from the 10-day injured list and is starting Friday's game against the Padres, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports.
McCormick recently appeared in two rehab games at Triple-A Sugar Land and went 4-for-8 with a double, three runs and an RBI. He'll play center field and bat seventh in his return to the lineup Friday but may have to split playing time with Jake Meyers, who has been productive recently.
McCormick (hand) went 2-for-4 with a double, an RBI and a run scored for Triple-A Sugar Land on Monday.
McCormick began what is expected to be a two-day rehab assignment with the Skeeters and could rejoin the Astros later this week. He's hit well since becoming a lineup regular for Houston, but McCormick may not be returning as an everyday player. Jake Meyers (.883 OPS) has been a steady contributor since filling in for McCormick.
McCormick (hand) will begin a rehab assignment at Triple-A Sugar Land on Monday.
The plan is for McCormick to play Monday and Tuesday for the Skeeters. If there are no setbacks, then he'll be activated Friday, Sept. 3, when the Astros kick off a three-game set against the Padres in San Diego. Jake Meyers has been filling in for McCormick in center field, but it's unclear if McCormick will resume an everyday role in center. Meyers has hit well since joining the Astros, posting an .871 OPS with three home runs, four doubles and 14 RBI over 20 games.
McCormick (hand) was placed on the 10-day injured list Tuesday, Brian McTaggart of MLB.com reports.
The issue has sidelined the outfielder since Saturday, so he'll be eligible to be activated Sept. 1, though it's not yet clear if he's expected to require additional time to recover. Kyle Tucker (illness) was activated from the COVID-19 IL to take McCormick's roster spot and Jake Meyers should assume the bulk of the center field reps in his absence.
McCormick (hand) isn't starting Monday's game against the Royals, Danielle Lerner of the Houston Chronicle reports.
The 26-year-old will be excluded from the lineup for a third consecutive game as he continues to deal with left hand soreness. However, McCormick is still considered day-to-day and has appeared off the bench in each of the last two games. Jake Meyers will start in center field and bat seventh.
McCormick (hand) is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Mariners.
According to Jake Kaplan of The Athletic, manager Dusty Baker said McCormick's sore left hand is presenting issues when he swings, so he'll be held out of the lineup for a second straight day. Since Baker noted that McCormick is considered day-to-day and will still be available off the bench Sunday to pinch run and play defense, the 26-year-old looks set to avoid a stint on the injured list.
McCormick was removed from the lineup for Saturday's game against the Mariners due to left hand soreness, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports.
McCormick was scratched from the lineup with just under an hour remaining until the start of the game. The severity of the issue isn't yet clear, but the outfielder should be considered day-to-day for now.
McCormick was scratched from Saturday's lineup against Seattle for an unspecified reason, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports.
It's not yet clear whether McCormick could be available off the bench if needed. Michael Brantley will shift to right field while Taylor Jones enters the lineup as the left fielder.
