Yuli Gurriel Goes Yard On Saturday

Houston Astros first baseman Yuli Gurriel hit his first home run of the season as the Astros took care of the Mariners 7-2 on Saturday. It was the first hit of the season for the 36-year-old, who is coming off a monster 2019 season. Gurriel was unstoppable the final of half of last season, slashing .326/.382/.623 with 17 home runs, 19 doubles and 54 runs batted in over his final 62 games. Few were hotter in the game than the veteran first baseman, who hit .408 with a 1.284 OPS during a 24-game stretch in August that saw him hit 12 home runs and drive in 31 runs during that span. Few expect that type of production again this season but Gurriel will continue to have excellent value in most fantasy formats moving forward.

Astros Sign Yuli Gurriel To One-Year Deal

The Houston Astros signed first baseman Yuli Gurriel to a one-year, $8.3 million deal on Monday. The deal will contain $250,000 in award bonuses for 2020, and he'll have the right to declare free agency at the end of the year. The 35-year-old Cuban had by far his best season in the big leagues in 2019, slashing .298/.343/.541 with a career-high 31 home runs, 104 RBI, 85 runs scored and five stolen bases in 144 games for the 'Stros. Houston ultimately fell short in the World Series in seven games, but Gurriel was a force at the plate all season long. He's hit above .290 the last three seasons and has plenty of pop in this potent lineup, making him an attractive fantasy corner infielder even if some regression is on its way.

Yuli Gurriel Homers in Game 7 Loss

Houston Astros first baseman Yuli Gurriel started off Game 7 with a second-inning home run that gave the Astros a 1-0 lead on Wednesday. He singled later in the game and had four high-quality at-bats. It certainly wasnt his fault that the Astros couldnt score more than two runs. They couldnt defend their home turf and lost all four games in Houston. The Nationals take home the championship after one of the greatest postseason stories to date.
