  • Astros' Jake Bloss: Getting another start

    Bloss is scheduled to start Tuesday's game against the Athletics in Oakland, Matt Kawahara of the Houston Chronicle reports.

    Bloss will be making his first turn through the rotation of the second half after he returned from the 15-day injured list July 11 and covered four innings in a start against the Marlins. The rookie right-hander's stay in the rotation will likely come to an end once Justin Verlander (neck) is activated from the IL, perhaps as soon as next week.

  • Astros' Joey Loperfido: Not in Sunday's lineup

    Loperfido is out of the lineup for Sunday's game at Seattle, Brian McTaggart of reports.

    Loperfido started the previous four contest but is hitless with four strikeouts in his past 11 at-bats. Trey Cabbage will start in right field and bat eighth in the series finale against the Mariners.

  • Astros' Jake Meyers: Clubs 11th homer in win

    Meyers went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in Saturday's win over the Mariners.

    Meyers took Ryne Stanek deep for a two-run shot in the top of the seventh to put Houston on top 3-2, giving the outfielder his third home run in his last five games. Meyers has also hit safely in six of his last eight contests, tallying six RBI and seven runs over that span. However, he's still batting just .151 (8-for-53) in July with one multi-hit performance.

  • Astros' Yainer Diaz: Slugs homer in win

    Diaz went 2-for-4 with a solo homer in Saturday's win over the Mariners.

    Diaz singled in his second at-bat and later added a solo homer in the eighth to extend Houston's lead to two runs. The long ball was Diaz's eighth of the season and his first since June 7 against the Angels. It also marked his sixth multi-hit performance this month, where he's now batting .306 (19-for-62) with 11 RBI and six runs scored. Additionally, Diaz has hit safely in six of his last seven games.

  • Astros' Josh Hader: Collects 20th save

    Hader picked up the save over the Mariners on Saturday, allowing one walk over a scoreless ninth inning while striking out two.

    Hader entered the contest with a two-run lead in the ninth and retired the first two batters before surrendering a walk to Jonatan Clase. The veteran reliever then made short work of Luke Raley for the third and final out, securing his 20th save of the campaign and his eighth in the month of July. Hader has also posted two strikeouts in four of his last five appearances while not allowing a hit over that stretch.

  • Astros' Framber Valdez: Strong through five innings

    Valdez did not factor into the decision in a win over Seattle on Saturday, allowing two runs on three hits and four walks over 5.2 innings. He struck out six.

    Valdez managed to keep Seattle off the board until the bottom of the sixth when Julio Rodriguez took him deep for a two-run shot. The lefty was then relieved by Tayler Scott with two outs in the frame, narrowly missing out on his third-straight quality start. Valdez hasn't allowed more than three earned runs in any of his last five outings, though he's now issued multiple free passes in five of his last six. Over that latter stretch he's 3-1 with a 37:17 K:BB.

  • Astros' Victor Caratini: Could join Astros Monday

    Caratini (hip) will play in rehab games at Double-A Corpus Christi on Saturday and Sunday before joining the Astros on Monday in Oakland, Brian McTaggart of reports.

    The Astros will begin a three-game set against the Athletics on Monday and Caratini is on track to return from his rehab assignment for the start of the series. The catcher has been recovering from a strained left hip and will have completed five rehab games when he rejoins the big-league club. Cesar Salazar will likely be optioned once Caratini is activated.

  • Astros' Luis Garcia: Throws 15 pitches

    Garcia (elbow) threw 15 pitches in a bullpen session Saturday, Brian McTaggart of reports.

    Garcia threw 15 pitches as part of his first mound work since July 4. While Saturday's session was a major step toward resuming his rehab assignment, Garcia will likely have to complete additional bullpens before being shipped out. The 27-year-old is 14 months into his recovery from Tommy John surgery.

  • Astros' Justin Verlander: Throws another bullpen

    Verlander (neck) threw 40 pitches during a bullpen session Saturday, Brian McTaggart of reports.

    Verlander is recovering from a neck injury that has sidelined him since June 18, but he's thrown a pair of bullpen sessions in the last week and was stretched out to 40 pitches Saturday. At this point, it's unclear if the 41-year-old will require a minor-league rehab stint.

  • Astros' Kyle Tucker: On-field activities intensifying

    Tucker (lower leg) participated in "intense defensive drills" Saturday, Brian McTaggart of reports.

    Tucker resumed baseball activities this week that have progressed from light to intense. Saturday's update indicates that Tucker could be ready for a rehab assignment in the near future -- an expected step in his recovery considering he's been shelved since early June.

  • Astros' Mauricio Dubon: Sitting again Saturday

    Dubon is out of the lineup for Saturday's game against the Mariners, Matt Kawahara of the Houston Chroniclereports.

    Dubon entered the All-Star break hitless in his last 10-at bats and has been on the bench in back-to-back games to open up the second half of the season. Once again, Joey Loperfido, Jake Meyers and Trey Cabbage will fill the outfield from left to right.

  • Astros' Josh Hader: Secures save Friday

    Hader struck out one in a perfect inning to earn the save in Friday's 3-0 win over the Mariners.

    Hader got through the middle of the Mariners' order on a tidy 11 pitches (seven strikes) to earn his 19th save of the campaign. This was his fourth straight scoreless outing, an improvement on a stretch in which he allowed a run in four of six appearances from June 25 to July 7. The closer is at a 3.77 ERA, 0.98 WHIP and 68:12 K:BB through 43 innings this season.

  • Astros' Hunter Brown: Throws six shutout innings

    Brown (8-6) allowed four hits and three walks while striking out five over six shutout innings to earn the win over the Mariners on Friday.

    Brown walked multiple batters for the fourth time in five starts, but his only loss in that span came the one time he issued a single free pass. He's kept opponents off the board in five of his last eight outings and has record a quality start in 10 of his last 11 trip to the mound. Brown's walk rate is about the only issue for him at this point -- he has a 3.5 BB/9 overall, though since May 22 he has a 2.7 mark. The 25-year-old has added a 4.14 ERA, 1.36 WHIP and 110:41 K:BB through 104.1 innings across 20 appearances (19 starts). Brown is projected to face the Athletics in a road start next week.

  • Astros' Lance McCullers: No structural damage in elbow

    McCullers said Friday that he has no structural damage in his right elbow or forearm, Matt Kawahara of the Houston Chronicle reports.

    Despite that assurance, McCullers still has not resumed throwing after being shut down July 9. However, manager Joe Espada said the right-hander may be able to restart a throwing program within the next several days depending on how he feels. McCullers hasn't pitched in an MLB game since 2022 and still figures to be at least several weeks away from a potential return to the Astros.

  • Astros' Luis Garcia: Throwing bullpen Saturday

    Garcia (elbow) will throw a bullpen session Saturday, Brian McTaggart of reports.

    Saturday will mark Garcia's first time throwing off a mound since July 4, as the Astros opted to pull him off his rehab assignment following a rough outing in Double-A. He will likely need to throw a few additional mound sessions before resuming his rehab stint, at which point he'll require multiple starts as he works his way back from Tommy John surgery.

  • Astros' Mauricio Dubon: Not in Friday's lineup

    Dubon isn't in the Astros' lineup for Friday's game against Seattle, Matt Kawahara of the Houston Chronicle reports.

    After ending the first half of the season on an 0-for-10 streak, Dubon will take a seat for Houston's first game out of the All-Star break. While he rests, Joey Loperfido, Jake Meyers and Trey Cabbage will start across the Astros' outfield.
