Aledmys Diaz Beats Astros In Arbitration

Houston Astros infielder Aledmys Diaz won his salary arbitration case and will make $2.6 million in 2020 instead of the $2 million that the team was proposing, according to sources. Diaz missed some time with injuries last season and had just 210 at-bats in a utility role, but he was useful to Houston with his .271/.356/.467 slash line, nine home runs and 40 RBI in 69 games played. An All-Star in his first big league season with the Cardinals, Diaz has become a super-utility player on a stacked Astros roster. For that reason, his only real value comes for his positional versatility on the infield in AL-only setups.

Brad Peacock Suffers Setback With Neck

Houston Astros starting pitcher Brad Peacock (neck) suffered a recurrence of the nerve damage in his neck. He is back throwing from 90 feet, but it's a setback to his throwing program and could blow his chances of winning the No. 5 rotation spot to start the regular season. Peacock had a decent 4.12 ERA and 1.19 WHIP while striking out 96 and walking 31 in 23 outings (15 starts) over 91 2/3 frames for the 'Stros in 2019. He's made 20-plus starts in his eight big league seasons only twice, but he's a valuable swingman for Houston and hadn't had an ERA over 4.00 prior to 2019 since 2015. The right-hander can be a really nice DFS or deep league streamer when he's making starts, but there's a good chance now that he'll open the season in the bullpen.

Zack Greinke Healthy

Houston Astros starting pitcher Zack Greinke is "100 percent healthy" but will report to camp on Feb. 22, 10 days later than his fellow pitchers. Were not worried about him, manager Dusty Baker said. This guy, he works. When he comes to camp, we expect him to fall in place with everyone else. Greinke didn't report to spring training on time last year either and isn't a fan of the six-week long lead-up to the season. The right-hander had a 3.02 ERA in 62 2/3 innings with Houston after being traded from the Diamondbacks on July 31. He should continue to pile up wins with the Astros and should be seen as a solid No. 2 fantasy arm.

Martin Maldonado Returns To Astros

The Houston Astros re-signed catcher Martin Maldonado to a two-year, $7 million deal on Friday, according to multiple people with knowledge of the deal. The defensive whiz played in just 27 games for the Astros last year after being acquired from the Cubs. He's certainly a better real-life player than a fantasy one, as he hit just .213/.293/.378 with 12 home runs, 46 runs and 27 RBI in 101 games with the Royals, Cubs and Astros. Maldonado should be the primary catcher in Houston next season, and he will share time with Garrett Stubbs. Maldonado is more of a low-end backstop in two-catcher leagues because of his defense-first profile.

Lance McCullers Jr., Josh Reddick Should Be Ready

Houston Astros general manager Jeff Luhnow said that starting pitcher Lance McCullers Jr. (elbow) and outfielder Josh Reddick (shoulder) will be 100 percent healthy entering spring training and won't be limited at all. McCullers missed the entire 2019 season after having Tommy John surgery, but he'll be a big part of the team's rotation if he's healthy. He'll need to stay healthy to try and help fill in for the loss of Gerrit Cole. McCullers has electric stuff (10.1 K/9 in four seasons), but injuries are what makes him a high-risk, high-reward fantasy starter. You could be able to get him on the cheap in 2020 coming off his injury. Reddick hit .275/.319/.409 with 14 home runs and 56 RBI in his 501 at-bats for the 'Stros in 2019. The 32-year-old is more of a commodity in deep mixed and AL-only leagues for outfield depth.
