Astros' Will Harris: Activation expected Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Harris (shoulder) is expected to be activated for Friday's series opener in Detroit, Jake Kaplan of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Harris had just one rehabilitation outing and apparently that was enough for the Astros. With Dallas Keuchel also returning Friday, Houston is likely to make room on the roster by sending down outfielder Derek Fisher and reliever Michael Feliz to Triple-A Fresno. Harris should resume his role as a high-leverage reliever.

Astros' Garrett Stubbs: Low batting average at Double-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stubbs, 24, is batting .237/.325/.340 with four home runs, 24 RBI and eight steals through 68 games for Double-A Corpus Christi.

Stubbs hit .304 last year, so 2017 has clearly been a disappointment in terms of his batting average, even as he has accumulated almost as many walks as strikeouts. His home runs and steals are down as well, though he does have double-digit potential in both areas. Still, at 24 years of age and loads of talent at the catching spot ahead of him, it remains to be seen if Stubbs will end up in Houston's future plans.

Astros' Alex Bregman: Feels better Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bregman said he felt better Wednesday, a day after his hamstring tightened up while he rounded second base on the way to a triple, Jake Kaplan of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Bregman described his removal from Tuesday's game as precautionary, and the team will reassess his availability for Friday's series-opener in Detroit following Thursday's day off.

Astros' Michael Feliz: Crushed for six runs in two relief innings
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Feliz gave up six runs on eight hits while striking out five over two innings in Wednesday's loss at Philadelphia.

Well, that was ugly. Feliz had allowed the same number of earned runs over his preceding 15 appearances, posting a 3.68 ERA in that span -- but also a 1.57 WHIP that served as a warning sign of an explosion to come. Indeed, it came in the form of fifth- and sixth-inning homers that helped turn a three-run deficit into a rout. Feliz has been a solid source of strikeouts out of the Astros' bullpen, but the fireballer's not much of a fantasy asset thanks to his poor ratios and lack of a high-leverage role.

Astros' Mike Fiers: Lasts four innings Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fiers (7-5) allowed three runs on five hits and three walks while striking out seven over four innings in Wednesday's 9-0 loss to the Phillies.

It's been a while since Fiers turned in a poor effort, but this one comes just days before manager A.J. Hinch will decide which starting pitcher will be removed from the current rotation to make room for ahe returning Dallas Keuchel (neck). The decision is expected to come down to Fiers or Brad Peacock, with Peacock's successful experience as a reliever earlier this season possibly a deciding factor.
