Astros' Derek Fisher: Starts for injured Springer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fisher started in center field Tuesday, taking the spot of the injured George Springer (quadriceps), and went 1-for-3 with two RBI in Houston's 5-0 win over Philadelphia.

Fisher should get at least one more start Wednesday as there's talk of Springer being ready to roll by this weekend's series in Detroit. What happens next for Fisher is uncertain. Houston is expected to welcome back Dallas Keuchel (neck) and Will Harris (shoulder) from the disabled list this weekend and roster spots will be needed. Fisher's major-league ready right now after more than 500 at-bats at Triple-A, but there isn't much room on the current roster for him, unless the Astros decide to move on from Norichika Aoki. He could be used as the price to acquire a needed piece (a reliever) for the stretch drive and could move into a situation where he can play in the majors every day. We should learn more about Fisher's immediate future in the next week.

Astros' George Springer: Available Wednesday off bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Springer (quadriceps) will be available off the bench Wednesday, Jake Kaplan of the Houston Chronicle reports. He was absent from Tuesday's lineup, a day after leaving a game with discomfort in his left quadriceps.

The Astros will take it easy with Springer. If there's no need for him to play Wednesday, he won't play. With a scheduled day off looming Thursday, Springer could get a full three days off before returning to the lineup for this weekend's series in Detroit.

Astros' Ken Giles: Works non-save situation
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Giles worked around a double to record a scoreless ninth inning and close out Houston's 5-0 win over Philadelphia on Tuesday.

Giles was brought into a non-save situation because he'd thrown just a third of inning since July 17. The right-handed closer has been called on 14 times in non-save situations and posted a 4.05 ERA, having allowed six runs, nine hits and eight walks over 13.1 innings in such situations.

Astros' Yulieski Gurriel: Fills in at third base
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gurriel moved from first base to third when Alex Bregman left during the middle of Tuesday's win with a hamstring injury.

Normally, manager A.J. Hinch would rejigger his lineup to have Marwin Gonzalez play third base, but he's needed to cover for the injured Carlos Correa (thumb). If Bregman's injury lingers, Gurriel or Tyler White can handle the hot-corner duties. Gurriel is batting .293 with 13 home runs and 53 RBI through 87 games.

Astros' Charlie Morton: Fans nine over seven scoreless frames Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morton (8-4) tossed seven scoreless innings Tuesday, allowing three hits and a walk while striking out nine in a 5-0 win over the Phillies.

He threw 71 of 105 pitches for strikes in dominating Philadelphia and recording his fifth quality start of the year. Morton has now won three of four outings since coming off the DL, posting a 3.28 ERA and 27:8 K:BB in 24.2 innings over that stretch. The right-hander will next take the mound Tuesday at home against the Rays.
