  • Astros' Jake Meyers: Losing work to Dubon

    Meyers isn't in the Astros' lineup for Saturday's game against the Nationals, Matt Kawahara of the Houston Chronicle reports.

    Meyers will sit down for the third consecutive game Saturday in favor of Mauricio Dubon, who is batting .319 on the year and has posted a 1.158 OPS across his last five games. Given Meyers' declining production at the plate, he may end up dropping down the depth chart if Dubon is able to continue his hot streak.

  • Astros' Jake Meyers: Sits again Friday

    Meyers is out of the lineup for Friday's game at Washington.

    It's the second straight game on the bench for Meyers, who has a .584 OPS over his past 11 contests. Mauricio Dubon is starting in center field Friday and could carve out a larger share of playing time if he can continue his hot stretch at the plate.

  • Astros' Jake Meyers: Sits in favor of Dubon

    Meyers is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against Atlanta, Matt Kawahara of the Houston Chronicle reports.

    Meyers looks to be stuck in a timeshare in center field with Mauricio Dubon, as the two have now picked up three starts apiece at the position over the last seven games, with Chas McCormick drawing the other start. Valued mainly for his defensive contributions, Meyers has chipped in at the dish with four extra-base hits (two doubles, two home runs) through 41 plate appearances, but he's getting on base at a .293 clip this season.

  • Astros' Jake Meyers: Not starting Sunday

    Meyers is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Rangers, Matt Kawahara of the Houston Chronicle reports.

    Meyers went 3-for-8 with a double, a walk, three RBI and a run while starting the first two games versus Texas, but he'll take a seat for Sunday's series finale. Chas McCormick (hamstring) will handle center field after missing a couple games while Yordan Alvarez mans left field.

  • Astros' Jake Meyers: Moves to bench Thursday

    Meyers is out of the lineup for Thursday's game against the Royals, Matt Kawahara of the Houston Chronicle reports.

    Meyers will hit the bench for the third time in four games after he went 0-for-4 and committed an error in his return to the lineup in Tuesday's 11-2 loss to the Royals. The 27-year-old hasn't offered interesting numbers from a fantasy perspective thus far with a .200 average, two home runs, four RBI and three runs across 27 plate appearances, but he's still produced at a league-average level with a 100 wRC+. Mauricio Dubon will get the nod in center field Thursday, but Meyers should still have a bit of leash as the Astros' preferred option at the position.

  • Astros' Jake Meyers: Out of Monday's lineup

    Meyers is not in the lineup for Monday's game at Texas, Brian McTaggart of MLB.com reports.

    Meyers started the previous three games and will head to the bench after going 2-for-8 with a home run, two RBI and two runs during that stretch. Yordan Alvarez will move to the outfield while Jose Altuve rests his legs as the designated hitter.

  • Astros' Jake Meyers: On bench Wednesday

    Meyers is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Blue Jays, Matt Kawahara of the Houston Chronicle reports.

    Despite having now been out of the lineup for two straight days and three times through the Astros' first seven games, Meyers still looks to be the team's preferred option in center field. Manager Joe Espada may just want to ensure that backup center fielder/utility man Mauricio Dubon stays fresh after having logged just six plate appearances so far this season.

  • Astros' Jake Meyers: Getting breather Tuesday

    Meyers is not in the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Blue Jays, Matt Kawahara of the Houston Chronicle reports.

    Chas McCormick will slide over to center field for this one, while Yordan Alvarez handles left field and Yainer Diaz serves as the designated hitter. Meyers is 3-for-12 with a home run in his first four games this season.

  • Astros' Jake Meyers: Won't start Saturday

    Meyers is not in the lineup for Saturday's game against the Yankees.

    Meyers started in the first two games of the season, going 1-for-5 with a solo home run and a walk. Mauricio Dubon will get the start in center field Saturday and bat eighth against Yankees right-hander Marcus Stroman.

  • Astros' Jake Meyers: Set to play in exhibition

    Meyers (hand) will start in center field and bat ninth Monday in an exhibition game against Astros minor-leaguers.

    Meyers suffered an injury scare Saturday when he was forced out of a Grapefruit League game against the Mets after being struck on the left hand by a pitch, but X-rays came back negative. After taking Sunday off to let the soreness in his hand subside, Meyers is back in action. Assuming the hand issue doesn't present too much discomfort Monday while he swings the bat and plays the field, Meyers should be locked into a spot on the Astros' Opening Day roster as the team's primary center fielder.

  • Astros' Jake Meyers: Avoids hand fracture

    Astros manager Joe Espada said Sunday that X-rays on Meyers' left hand returned negative, Matt Kawahara of the Houston Chronicle reports.

    It's an encouraging development after Meyers was removed from Saturday's Grapefruit League contest against the Mets after being hit by a pitch on the hand. The 27-year-old will have a couple days to recover before the Astros take on the Yankees on Thursday for Opening Day.

  • Astros' Jake Meyers: Getting X-rays on hand

    Meyers will receive X-rays on his left hand Saturday, Matt Kawahara of the Houston Chronicle reports.

    Meyers had to leave Saturday's spring training game early after getting hit in his hand by a pitch. He stayed in the game to run the bases, which may indicate that his hand wasn't bothering him too much, but the Astros will have him go in for X-rays as a precaution. The 27-year-old outfielder was slashing .250/.372/.500 with two homers and five RBI across 43 plate appearances this spring entering Saturday's contest.

  • Astros' Jake Meyers: Exits after HBP

    Meyers left Saturday's Grapefruit League game against the Mets after taking a pitch off his left hand, Matt Kawahara of the Houston Chronicle reports.

    Meyers initially remained in the game to run the bases but was replaced in center field before the Astros took the field in the bottom of the fifth inning. It's possible the 27-year-old outfielder only left the game in order to give Jacob Melton -- Meyers' replacement -- a few extra spring training reps, but his hand may be something to monitor with less than a week before Opening Day.

  • Astros' Jake Meyers: Swing tweak paying off

    Meyers shifted the position of his hands on the bat this offseason, and he is hitting well this spring, Matt Kawahara of the Houston Chronicle reports.

    Meyers moved his hands lower in the hopes of using the whole field more effectively after his pull rate increased the last two seasons. The tweak has been effective to this point in the spring, as he's posted a .348/.483/.739 line across 28 plate appearances. Meyers is locked into the starting center field job to begin the regular season thanks to his defense, but he'll need to maintain some effectiveness with the bat to keep the role.

  • Astros' Jake Meyers: Looking to cement center field job

    Meyers has gone 2-for-6 with four walks and a double in four Grapefruit League games.

    Meyers is expected to be the Astros' primary center fielder to begin the season, though he's struggled to keep the job in past opportunities. He's shown good patience at the plate early on in spring, walking four times while striking out just twice. In addition, his defense in center field defense will be a significant positive factor for consistent playing time.

  • Astros' Jake Meyers: To be primary center fielder

    Astros general manager Dana Brown said Tuesday that Meyers will get the bulk of playing time in center field to begin the 2024 season, Brian McTaggart of MLB.com reports.

    Meyers slashed just .227/.296/.382 over 112 regular-season games in 2023 and was left off Houston's postseason roster, but Brown offered high praise for his defensive work and expressed optimism about the 27-year-old taking a step forward offensively. Chas McCormick projects to open the 2024 campaign as the Astros' primary left fielder with Meyers installed in center.

  • Astros' Jake Meyers: Absent from ALCS roster

    Meyers isn't on the Astros' roster for the American League Championship Series against the Rangers, which begins Sunday night in Houston, Chandler Rome of The Athletic reports.

    The 27-year-old outfielder hasn't seen game action since the final game of the regular season, so the Astros opted to prioritize bullpen help for the best-of-seven ALCS. Right-hander Ronel Blanco was added to the roster as Meyers' replacement.

  • Astros' Jake Meyers: Blasts 10th homer in rare start

    Meyers went 2-for-4 with one triple, a solo home run and an additional run scored in Sunday's 7-1 win over the Royals.

    Making only his second start since Sept. 1, it was Meyers' first multi-hit effort since Aug. 26 and his first homer since Aug. 6. With Houston currently at full health, Meyers may continue to struggle to gain at-bats as he remains buried deep on the Astros depth chart.
