Houston Astros DFS SPIN
Yordan Álvarez was absent from the Astros’ starting lineup on Sunday due to hand soreness. Álvarez was available off the bench for Sunday’s series finale against the Yankees and was intentionally walked as a pinch-hitter in the ninth inning of the back-and-forth extra-inning affair. It doesn’t sound like a serious concern for fantasy managers moving forward, but it’s certainly a situation to monitor when the Astros face the Mets on Tuesday in New York.

The 29-year-old outfielder is hitting .278/.367/.433 with five homers, 42 runs scored, and 24 RBI across 289 plate appearances.
