  • Astros' Corey Julks: Sent down to minors

    The Astros optioned Julks to Triple-A Sugar Land on Wednesday.

    Julks spent the bulk of the 2023 season in the majors but came up short for an Opening Day roster spot this year. The 28-year-old will play corner outfield with Sugar Land and hope to get another shot with the big club sooner rather than later.

  • Astros' Corey Julks: May not begin season in majors

    Julks may not make the Opening Day roster due to his lack of defensive value, Chandler Rome of The Athletic reports.

    Julks has hit well this spring, maintaining a .308/.333/.577 line across 27 plate appearances while striking out twice. That gives him a strong case to crack the Opening Day roster, but the team has Mauricio Dubon as a bench player capable of playing the outfield. Grae Kessinger could ultimately get the nod instead, as he can play every infield position except catcher.

  • Astros' Corey Julks: Sent back to Triple-A

    Houston optioned Julks to Triple-A Sugar Land on Tuesday.

    This is the corresponding 26-man roster move for Michael Brantley (shoulder) as he returns from the 60-day injured list. Julks has batted just .245/.297/.352 through his first 323 major-league plate appearances in 2023.

  • Astros' Corey Julks: Back in big leagues

    Julks was called up by the Astros on Saturday, Chandler Rome of The Athletic reports.

    Julks will take the spot that had belonged to Grae Kessinger, who landed on the injured list due to health and safety protocols. Julks provided a bit of fantasy value as a 27-year-old rookie prior to his demotion in early August with his 15 steals, but his .245/.299/.353 slash line (81 wRC+) wasn't good enough to keep him in a regular role.

  • Astros' Corey Julks: Demoted to minors amid slump

    Julks was optioned to Triple-A Sugar Land on Monday, Chandler Rome of The Athletic reports.

    Julks has made more starts in left field than any other Astro this season, but he had been hitless across his last 36 at-bats and hadn't homered since June 18, which has resulted in a trip back to the minors. Chas McCormick should see most of the action in left moving forward, with Jake Meyers handling center.

  • Astros' Corey Julks: On bench again Friday

    Julks remains out of the lineup Friday versus the Yankees.

    Julks is still without a hit over his last 41 plate appearances and appears to have lost his hold on the Astros' left field job. Chas McCormick is manning left field again Friday as Jake Meyers covers center.

  • Astros' Corey Julks: Sits amid deep slump

    Julks is not in the lineup Thursday against the Yankees.

    Julks recorded a walk in the Astros' win over Cleveland on Wednesday, but he's gone hitless in his last 41 plate appearances dating back to mid-July. Chas McCormick will play left field Thursday as Jake Meyers patrols center field.

  • Astros' Corey Julks: On bench again Sunday

    Julks is out of the lineup for Sunday's game versus the Rays, Brian McTaggart of MLB.com reports.

  • Astros' Corey Julks: Sitting Saturday

    Julks isn't in the Astros' lineup Saturday versus Tampa Bay, Brian McTaggart of MLB.com reports.

    Julks has been in a major 0-for-27 slump at the plate over his last nine games, so he'll get a day off Saturday to regroup. Yordan Alvarez will fill in as Houston's left fielder, Chas McCormick will serve as the DH and Jake Meyers will start in center.

  • Astros' Corey Julks: Hits bench Monday

    Julks is out of the lineup for Monday's game against the Rangers.

    Julks started each of Houston's last six games, going just 1-for-21 with three walks against five strikeouts during that stretch. Though he's been able to hold down a near-everyday role for a large chunk of the season, Julks could be in danger of seeing his playing time take a hit later this week, when Yordan Alvarez (oblique) is likely to return from the 10-day injured list.

  • Astros' Corey Julks: Takes seat Sunday

    Julks is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Mariners, Brian McTaggart of MLB.com reports.

  • Astros' Corey Julks: Bright spot in loss

    Julks went 3-for-3 with a double, one RBI and a stolen base in Thursday's 5-1 loss to the Mariners.

    Julks was one of two Astros with multiple hits and the only one to drive in a run in the loss. He's on a tear with multiple hits in four straight contests, going 11-for-16 (.688) with three steals in that impressive span. Each good performance further solidifies his place in the lineup. The left fielder is slashing .289/.333/.418 with six home runs, 29 RBI, 34 runs scored, 15 stolen bases and 12 doubles through 67 contests this season.

  • Astros' Corey Julks: Showing ability to get on base

    Julks went 2-for-5 with a run scored and a stolen base Monday against the Rangers.

    Julks has gotten on base multiple times in six of his last 11 starts, maintaining an impressive .413 on-base percentage. He's shown improved patience, as he's drawn six free passes in that span after working only nine walks across his first 53 games of the campaign. Julks is still getting on base at a .308 clip across 237 plate appearances, though he has chipped in 13 stolen bases and six home runs.

  • Astros' Corey Julks: Sitting Friday

    Julks is not in the starting lineup Friday against the Rangers.

    Julks will head to the bench after he went 4-for-9 with an RBI and a run scored while starting two games during the team's series with St. Louis. Chas McCormick will slide over to left field while Jake Meyers enters the lineup in center field and bats eighth in the series opener versus Texas.

  • Astros' Corey Julks: Gets aboard four times in blowout

    Julks went 3-for-5 with a walk, one RBI and one run scored in Thursday's 14-0 win over the Cardinals.

    Julks has hit safely in seven of his last eight games, racking up three multi-hit efforts and five RBI in that span. The outfielder appears to be separating himself in the battle for playing time in left field, leaving Chas McCormick to contend with Jake Meyers for time in center. For the season, Julks is slashing .265/.307/.398 with six home runs, 27 RBI, 30 runs scored and 12 stolen bases over 225 plate appearances.

  • Astros' Corey Julks: Out against Cardinals

    Julks is not in the starting lineup for Wednesday's bout against the Cardinals, Katie Woo of The Athletic reports.

    Julks has picked up hits in six of his last seven games including a double against the Cardinals on Tuesday, but he'll get a day of rest Wednesday. Bligh Madris will hit seventh and line up in left field in Julks' absence.

  • Astros' Corey Julks: Sticking in lineup

    Julks went 1-for-3 with a walk, two RBI, two runs scored and a stolen base Wednesday against the Mets.

    Julks started in left field for the fourth time in the last five games, while Jake Meyers and Chas McCormick continue to split time between center and left field. Julks has taken advantage of that opportunity by tallying four hits across 12 at-bats to go along with a homer, three RBI and six runs scored. Even with Yordan Alvarez (oblique) sidelined, the Astros have a crunch for playing time in the outfield, so Julks will need to continue to perform well to keep consistent at-bats.

  • Astros' Corey Julks: Swats sixth homer

    Julks went 1-for-4 with a walk and a solo home run Sunday against the Reds.

    Julks has maintained a somewhat regular role in left field, and he's also benefitted with some extra plate appearances at designated hitter in the absence of Yordan Alvarez (oblique). His home run Sunday was his sixth of the season and third in June, though he's hitting only .191 across 47 at-bats for the month.

  • Astros' Corey Julks: Swipes two bags in win

    Julks went 1-for-4 with a walk, a run and two stolen bases in a 6-4 victory versus the Guardians on Saturday.

    Julks made the most of his two times reaching base, swiping second base in each instance. He's up to 10 thefts on the season, making him one of 31 major-leaguers to reach that mark thus far. The stolen base total gives Julks some fantasy appeal, and he's added some modest production in other areas with a .262/.286/.399 slash line, five homers, 23 RBI and 22 runs over 48 games.
