  • Astros' George Springer: Returns to lineup

    Springer returned to the lineup and went 1-for-5 in Tuesday's 6-1 win over the Mariners.

    Springer was given a rest day Monday by manager Dusty Baker, who was influenced by Statcast data that indicated the outfielder was a high risk for injury. There should be no such off-days the rest of the season, which has five games remaining.

After allowing 16 runs in three starts to begin September, he's given up just one run in each of his last two outings. Valdez has a 3.57 ERA, 1.12 WHIP and 76 strikeouts in 70.2 innings this season.

  • Astros' Myles Straw: Starts for Springer

    Straw started in center field and went 0-for-4 in Monday's 6-1 loss to the Mariners.

    Straw got the start in place of a resting George Springer, who according to Statcast data was a high risk for injury. Springer is expected to finish out the season in center field.

  • Astros' Yuli Gurriel: Still feels hand issue

    Gurriel acknowledged still feeling pain relating to a hand injury he suffered while sliding into second base Sept. 12, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports. He went 0-for-4 in Monday's loss to the Mariners.

    Gurriel wears wrap around the hand which he says contributes to problems gripping the bat. Even before the injury, his production dropped off during September. For the month, he's 11-for-68 with a .169 on-base percentage over 71 plate appearances. His OPS has dropped 164 points since the end of August.

  • Astros' George Springer: Statcast influences decision

    Springer was given a rest day Monday because Statcast data indicated he was a high risk for injury, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports.

    In a series crucial to Houston's playoff hopes, the Astros played without its hottest hitter. Springer launched a pair of home runs Sunday and was 9-for-33 with five homers in eight straight starts since the team's previously scheduled off-day. "The Statcast data is kind of new to me, kind of new to baseball, and it's pretty accurate," manager Dusty Baker said. "We decided today would be the day." Baker cited similar data that indicated Alex Bregman was a risk for injury Aug. 19 in Colorado. That day, Bregman pulled his hamstring and missed three weeks. With just six games remaining in the regular season and a postseason berth to be secured, Springer should be able to play all six games if needed.

  • Astros' Michael Brantley: Three hits in loss

    Brantley went 3-for-4 in Monday's 6-1 loss to the Mariners.

    All three of Brantley's hits were singles, and Mariners starter Marco Gonzales did well to prevent the outfielder from getting home each time. In 41 games, Brantley is slashing .311/.373/.490 with four homers, 21 RBI, 21 runs scored and a stolen base.

  • Astros' Lance McCullers: Gets no help from defense

    McCullers (3-3) allowed four unearned runs on three hits and two walks and struck out seven over 6.2 innings in a loss to the Mariners on Monday.

    McCullers carried a no-hitter into the sixth inning before allowing a double to Tim Lopes. That was a sign of things to come, and after an error by Jose Altuve in the seventh, McCullers allowed a three-run homer to Evan White. Despite a little bad luck, it was a decent outing for the 26-year-old righty. McCullers has a 4.24 ERA, 1.18 WHIP and 47 strikeouts in 51 innings this year. He lines up for one more regular-season start Saturday versus the Rangers.

  • Astros' George Springer: Not in lineup

    Springer will sit Monday against the Mariners, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports.

    There haven't been any indications that this is anything other than a routine day off for Springer, who's started the last 22 games for the Astros, hitting nine homers and posting a 1.033 OPS over that stretch. Myles Straw serves as the center fielder in his absence.

  • Astros' Ryan Pressly: Earns 12th save

    Pressly struck out one in a perfect ninth inning Sunday, earning a save in the win over the Diamondbacks.

  • Astros' Jose Urquidy: Yields two runs in no-decision

    Urquidy allowed two runs on six hits and two walks over six innings Sunday, striking out two in the win over Arizona. He did not factor in the decision.

    Urquidy kept the Diamondbacks quiet before allowing a run in the fourth inning and then a solo shot to Nick Ahmed in the fifth. He left the contest facing a 2-0 deficit but, thanks mostly to George Springer's two homers, he avoided the loss. The 25-year-old will carry a 2.78 ERA into his final start of the season in Friday's road contest against the Rangers.
