Player Outlook
Grae Kessinger made his big league debut in 2023 earning 40 plate appearances while slashing .200/.289/.325 and hitting one home run. The 2019 second round pick climbed three levels in 2023 with his best work coming at Triple-A Sugar Land hitting .283/.397.435 with six home runs and two stolen bases across 230 plate appearances. Kessinger made the ALDS roster for the Astros and has a chance to break camp as a backup option across the infield in 2024. His fantasy appeal is almost nonexistent unless he can carve out an every day role in the new campaign.

  • Astros' Grae Kessinger: Makes season debut Monday

    Kessinger (hamstring) grounded out in his lone plate appearance in Monday's 10-0 loss to the Blue Jays. Kessinger didn't see make any Grapefruit League or exhibition appearances after March 18 while he recovered from a right hamstring strain, but he showcased enough improvement last week to be included on the Astros' Opening Day roster as a reserve infielder. With the Astros building a 10-run lead after seven innings, Kessinger got the chance to make his season debut in the bottom of the eighth as a pinch hitter for designated hitter Yordan Alvarez. He's still waiting to make his debut in the field, but Kessinger at least looks to be healthy now.

  • Astros' Grae Kessinger: Defensive versatility could pay off

    Kessinger has a chance to win the final bench spot on Houston's big-league roster out of spring training, Chandler Rome of The Athletic reports. Kessinger made his major-league debut in 2023, though he drew only 45 plate appearances. He's played every infield position as a pro except for catcher, a skill set that will be valuable for the Astros. Kessinger's fantasy appeal is far more limited, as he's unlikely to see regular at-bats without several significant injuries in Houston's lineup, and he offers little in the way of power or stolen base production.

  • Astros' Grae Kessinger: Gets leadoff look

    Kessinger is starting at second base and batting leadoff Saturday versus Oakland. Kessinger has made a nice impression in limited action since being called up by the Astros in early June, boasting an .890 OPS through his first 24 major-league plate appearances. Mauricio Dubon is on the bench Saturday and Jose Altuve (oblique) is likely to be on the injured list for another week.

  • Astros' Grae Kessinger: Smacks first career homer

    Kessinger went 2-for-4 with a solo home run in Tuesday's 4-1 win over the Rockies. Though Kessinger had appeared in just six games since being called up in early June, he drew the starting nod Tuesday after Jose Altuve (oblique) was scratched from the lineup. Kessinger got to work early, hitting a solo homer off Kyle Freeland in the third for his first MLB round-tripper, then followed it up with a single in the eighth for his first career multi-hit game. With Altuve and Jeremy Pena (neck) each battling lingering injuries, Kessinger could receive more action in the near future if either of the pair misses more time.
