Astros' Marwin Gonzalez: Being considered for right field
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager A.J. Hinch said he'd like to incorporate Gonzalez into right field, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports.

The Astros are dealing with some injuries in the outfield, forcing Hinch to get creative with his deployment. Tony Kemp (.375/.448/.542) has forced his way into the starting lineup, but is primarily a left fielder, the spot where the super-utility Gonzalez typically plays when in the outfield. That the manager is considering exposing Gonzalez to right field is indicative of his current pecking order in the outfield: George Springer, Kemp, then Gonzalez and Jake Marisnick. "This is more of a comfort alignment than a strategy alignment. But, coming to the ballpark every day, I want Tony to play and that's moving guys around a little more given how much he's getting on base and the quality of defense he's given us," said Hinch.

Astros' Tony Kemp: Swats first homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kemp went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in Saturday's 8-6 loss to Cleveland.

Kemp's sixth-inning homer answered a two-spot the Indians put up a half-inning earlier and kept the Astros in striking distance. The 26-year-old has reached base in eight of the nine games played since his call-up. He's hitting .375 with a .448 on-base percentage and hasn't given manager A.J. Hinch any pause putting his name in the starting lineup daily, as can be the case with fellow outfielders Marwin Gonzalez (.217) or Jake Marisnick (.167).

Astros' Jose Altuve: Double short of cycle Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Altuve went 4-for-4 with a triple, a home run, three runs scored, two RBI and two stolen bases in Saturday's 8-6 loss to Cleveland.

The homer was just his third of the year, and Altuve's first since April 28, while the steals give him a paltry six through 53 games. It's been a relatively disappointing start to the season for the 2017 American League MVP, at least by his high standards, but Altuve seems locked in right now, hitting .390 (16-for-41) over his last 10 games with seven runs, nine RBI and four steals.

Astros' Lance McCullers: Crushed by Cleveland on Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McCullers (6-3) took the loss against Cleveland on Saturday as the Astros fell 8-6, allowing seven runs on six hits -- including three home runs -- and two walks over 4.1 innings while striking out two.

To say the right-hander didn't have his best stuff in this one would be an understatement. McCullers hadn't served up a home run since April 17, but Yonder Alonso's two-run shot in the fourth snapped a streak of 47 straight innings in which he'd kept the ball in the park. The seven earned runs also matched his total from the entire month of May coming into Saturday's game. McCullers will carry a 3.98 ERA into another tough test Thursday when he faces the Red Sox at home.

Astros' Jose Altuve: Delivers breakthrough hit Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Altuve went 2-for-5 with two doubles, two RBI and two runs scored in Friday's 11-2 win over the Indians.

The final score made the game look like a laugher, but the Astros trailed 2-0 entering the eighth inning and were in need of a spark that Altuve provided. With just two hits in his last 16 at-bats, Altuve faced tough lefty Andrew Miller and turned on a first-pitch slider, doubling down the left field line to plate two runners. By the lofty standards Altuve has set for himself, he's having a down year, but he's still hitting above .300 and very capable of delivering hits in a key moment.
