Houston Astros Fantasy Spin
Myles Straw had a big day Sunday, finishing 3-for-4 with three stolen bases and three runs scored to help the Astros edge the Athletics 6-4 in 12 innings. Straw drew the start in center field and batted at the bottom of the Astros lineup, but he was still able to make his presence felt on the basepaths. After an innocuous single in the third inning, Straw again singled in the fifth and promptly stole second base, scoring on an Alex Bregman RBI single. Then in the seventh, Straw struck again, taking a one-out walk, stealing second base and scoring on a Derek Fisher hit. Finally, in the 12th, he led off the inning with a single, stole second base again and scored the go-ahead run on a Michael Brantley single. The 24-year-old has speed to burn and could put it to use if given some regular playing time, but that's a tall order on a loaded Astros club, and it's hard to see him getting to the point of being fantasy relevant outside of AL-only leagues at the moment. Even so, we'll be watching.
Seattle Mariners Fantasy Spin
Kyle Seager went 2-for-3 with his first home run of the year and two runs scored in Sunday's loss to the Angels. It came with the M's down 13-2 in the sixth inning, but Seager certainly didn't mind getting the first one out of the way anyway. The homer, a solo shot to right field off Angels rookie Jose Suarez, was his first since September 19, 2018 after a torn tendon in his left hand cost him nearly two months to start the year. Through nine games, the 31-year-old is hitting .257/.316/.400 and is really probably best left for AL-only leagues and maybe some CI spots in deep mixed leagues at this stage.
MLB Betting Trends
Astros are 58-26 in their last 84 road games.
The Mariners are 1-5 in their last six home games.
The Astros are banged up right now but I still favor them over the struggling Mariners. Houston has won four of its last five meetings with Seattle and is 37-17 in its last 54 road games versus the Mariners. The Astros are also 38-15 in their last 53 games overall and have won 21 of their last 26 division games. The Mariners, meanwhile, are winless in Wade LeBlanc’s last four starts and have dropped seven of his last nine outings at home.
