  • Astros' Zach Cole: Makes return from IL

    Double-A Corpus Christi reinstated Cole (hamstring) from the 7-day injured list Tuesday.

    The 23-year-old started in left field in Tuesday's 13-10 win over Arkansas, going 0-for-2 with two walks, one stolen base and one run while also reaching on a hit-by-pitch. Tuesday's game marked the Double-A debut for Cole, who began the season on the 7-day IL due to the hamstring injury before completing a six-game rehab assignment in the rookie-level Florida Complex League prior to his activation.

  • Astros' Joey Loperfido: Opportunities dwindling

    Loperfido is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Angels.

    With Jake Meyers and Jon Singleton having seemingly settled into full-time roles at center field and first base, respectively, and with left fielder Chas McCormick returning from the injured list Tuesday, Loperfido's time with the big club could soon come to an end now that his avenues to regular at-bats are starting to become more closed off. Loperfido has started just once in the Astros' last five games.

  • Astros' Chas McCormick: Hitting bench Wednesday

    McCormick is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Angels.

    McCormick returned from the 10-day injured list Tuesday and started in left field in the Astros' 6-5 victory over the Angels, going 0-for-3 with a strikeout. The Astros haven't indicated that McCormick suffered a setback with his hamstring in his return to the lineup Tuesday, so his absence Wednesday is likely just for maintenance purposes. Mauricio Dubon will get the nod in left field in the series finale.

  • Astros' Yainer Diaz: Getting breather Wednesday

    Diaz is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Angels.

    He'll be getting a breather for the series finale after starting behind the dish Monday and Tuesday while going 3-for-8 with a pair of doubles, two runs and an RBI. Victor Caratini will handle the catching duties Wednesday.

  • Astros' Jose Abreu: Headed to Triple-A this weekend

    Astros manager Joe Espada said Wednesday that Abreu will play for the Astros' rookie-level Florida Complex League affiliate Wednesday and Thursday before joining Triple-A Sugar Land this weekend, Chandler Rome of The Athletic reports.

    The Astros previously hadn't ruled out recalling Abreu from the minors ahead of Friday's series opener in Oakland, but they've ultimately decided to keep the veteran in the FCL for a little longer before having him compete at a higher level. Espada didn't rule out Abreu rejoining the big club before the end of the weekend, although nothing official has been decided on that front. Whether Abreu will immediately reclaim his starting first base job from Jon Singleton isn't yet clear.

  • Astros' Chas McCormick: Hits ninth in return

    McCormick went 0-for-3 with a strikeout Tuesday against the Angels.

    McCormick was activated off the injured list Tuesday and started in left field while hitting ninth. He forced Joey Loperfido to the bench, though he'll likely need to hit well to maintain regular playing time. McCormick has struggled early on, hitting just .227 with a .267 slugging percentage while striking out at a 27.9 percent slip across 86 plate appearances.

  • Astros' Josh Hader: Secures win with elite performance

    Hader (3-3) earned the win over the Angels in 10 innings on Tuesday, pitching two perfect innings while striking out four.

    Hader put together a vintage performance to help the Astros get by the Angels, which included striking out the side in the 10th inning. He's now pitched multiple frames in two of his last three outings and is showing signs of dominance once again after a rough start to the year. Over his last 11 games, Hader has a 1.26 ERA, 0.77 WHIP and 24:5 K:BB in 14.1 innings, which equates to a 44.4 strikeout rate. For the year, he's now lowered his ERA to a 4.09 to complement a 1.09 WHIP and 35:9 K:BB in 22 innings.

  • Astros' Cristian Javier: Shaky results in no-decision

    Javier did not factor into the decision in Tuesday's win over the Angels, allowing four runs on eight hits and three walks while striking out one over four innings.

    Javier's night got started off on the wrong foot after surrendering a two-run blast to Luis Rengifo in the opening frame. The Angels then got to him for two more runs in the fourth on a trio of hits, which included an RBI-double from Zach Neto. It was a very discouraging performance after Javier put together his best start of the season his previous outing against the A's. After the game, he cited his struggles due to poor mechanics, though he's now given up 11 runs on 13 hits and seven walks while striking out just one batter in 5.1 innings in his two starts surrounding his gem against Oakland. The 27-year-old now owns a 3.89 ERA, 1.41 WHIP and 27:19 K:BB in 34.2 innings and lines up to face Seattle next week.

  • Astros' Yordan Alvarez: Finds power in win

    Alvarez went 2-for-4 with a solo home run and a walk in Tuesday's 6-5 win over the Angels.

    Alvarez went back-to-back with Kyle Tucker in the first inning for his first home run since May 9. After slumping a bit earlier this month, his bat has heated back up. Alvarez now has at least a hit in 10 of his last 12 games and is slashing .340/.404/.553 with three RBI, seven runs and a 5:11 BB:K over that span.

  • Astros' Jon Singleton: Goes yard in Tuesday's win

    Singleton went 1-for-2 with a two-run home homer and two walks in Tuesday's 6-5 win over the Angels.

    Singleton tied the ballgame up in the sixth with a 432-foot blast to center field for his fifth home run of the year and his first since May 9. He now has six hits and four RBI over his last five games and continues to step up with the Astros looking for production at first base after Jose Abreu's early season struggles, though it's worth noting that Abreu is expected to return to the team soon following some time in the minors. The 32-year-old Singleton is now slashing .229/.336/.385 with 14 RBI, 17 runs and an 18:30 BB:K in 128 plate appearances.

  • Astros' Kyle Tucker: Homers twice Tuesday

    Tucker went 2-for-4 with two homers, a walk and three runs scored in Tuesday's 6-5 win over the Angels.

    Tucker homered in his first at-bat that went 340 feet and would've only been a home run in Houston. He later provided a no-doubter in the seventh to knot things up at 5-5 that would wind up sending the game to extra innings. Tuesday was his fourth multi-homer game of the season and he's now back to leading the league with 17 while his 1.074 OPS only trails Shohei Ohtani. For the year, Tucker is now slashing .293/.425/.649 with 36 RBI, 36 runs and a 40:36 BB:K in 214 plate appearances.

  • Astros' Jose Urquidy: Making next rehab start Friday

    Uquidy (forearm) will make a rehab start Friday with Triple-A Sugar Land, Brian McTaggart of MLB.com reports.

    The right-hander threw 59 pitches in his previous outing Saturday with Double-A Corpus Christi and is expected to build up to 70-to-75 pitches Friday. If all goes well, Urquidy could return from the 15-day injured list and step into Houston's rotation during its four-game series in Seattle next week.

  • Astros' Ronel Blanco: Returning from suspension Sunday

    Blanco (suspension) will be added to Houston's active roster Sunday and will start in the club's series finale in Oakland that day, Brian McTaggart of MLB.com reports.

    The Astros unsurprisingly won't waste any time reinserting Blanco into the rotation upon the completion of his 10-game ban. The right-hander threw live batting practice Monday and shouldn't face any significant limitations in his first start back.

  • Astros' Chas McCormick: Activated Tuesday

    McCormick (hamstring) was reinstated from the 10-day injured list Tuesday, Chandler Rome of The Athletic reports.

    McCormick has missed all of May with hamstring soreness, but he'll return to the active roster after a six-game rehab stint. The 29-year-old went 5-for-23 with a pair of doubles and a stolen base in the minors. While McCormick should end up as the Astros' starting left fielder, he's likely to split time with Joey Loperfido and could see more DH work considering the fragility of a hamstring injury.

  • Astros' Trey Cabbage: Sent to Sugar Land

    Cabbage was optioned to Triple-A Sugar Land on Tuesday, Chandler Rome of The Athletic reports.

    Cabbage will head back to the minors Tuesday to make room for Chas McCormick (hamstring) on the big-league roster. In 14 plate appearances with Houston, Cabbage slashed .214/.214/.286 with two runs scored and three RBi.

  • Astros' Ryan Pressly: Returns to mound

    Pressly threw a scoreless inning without allowing a baserunner and striking out one Monday against the Angels.

    Pressly was out for the team's weekend series with finger soreness, but he showed no ill effects in his return. He entered the game in the eighth inning with the Astros down three, presumably because the team wanted to get him some work after the layoff. Pressly has struggled a bit of late, allowing an earned run in half of his last four appearances. He has a 5.19 ERA on the season.
