Going back to right field during Wednesday evening's 8-3 series loss to the Seattle Mariners, Colby Rasmus went 1-for-4 with a single. He also tallied a fly out and a pair of strikeouts collectively in the game. Rasmus has kept his average steady at .227 on the season.

Fantasy Impact: It is refreshing to see Rasmus hitting for more contact. But the only thing standing in his way is the inability to catch the breaks he needs and deserves. History has shown, however, that the veteran outfielder will find his way out of this current jam fairly soon. Fantasy holders should keep an eye on Rasmus as well.

Shifting between both left and right field during Tuesday evening’s 7-5 loss to the Seattle Mariners, Colby Rasmus went 1-for-4 with a double and a fieding error that allowed him to reach third base. He also tallied a fly out and a pair of strikeouts in the game. Rasmus has dipped his average down slightly to .227 on the season.

Fantasy Impact: It was a little upsetting to have Rasmus be robbed of a triple, since he showed great judgement in running the base paths. However, the veteran outfielder is certainly expected to make more plays like this as the season winds down. Fantasy holders will certainly want to keep an eye on Rasmus coming down the stretch.

Holding at right field during Sunday afternoon's 7-5 series loss to the Minnesota Twins, Colby Rasmus went 1-for-4 with another single. He also tallied a line out and a pair of strikeouts collectively in the game. Rasmus has kept his average steady at .227 on the season.

Fantasy Impact: Rasmus appeared to try and do too much in this game, and the results of his at-bats reflected that. The veteran outfielder can still get himself out of any jam. But the key for this particular jam will most certainly be patience, which should be fairly easy to come by. Fantasy holders may not want to give up completely on Rasmus, and instead, keep an eye on him as the season winds down.

Holding at right field during Saturday evening's 4-1 victory over the Minnesota Twins, Colby Rasmus went 1-for-5 with a single. He also tallied a pop out, ground out, strikeout and reached on a fielding error. Rasmus has held his average steady at .227 on the season.

Fantasy Impact: The sooner Springer can return from his injury, the more pressure will get taken off of Rasmus. The veteran outfielder can play any corner, but it is clear that he prefers center while possessing the capacity to hold at the others. Once he can get away from right, all aspects of his game, including his bat, should drastically improve. Fantasy holders should, at the very least, keep an eye on Rasmus in the coming games.

Manning right field during Friday evening's 3-0 shutout loss to the Minnesota Twins, Colby Rasmus could not get a hit. He went 0-for-4 with a fly out, pop out and a pair of strikeouts collectively in the game. Rasmus dipped his average back down to .227 on the season.

Fantasy Impact: It has become all too clear since the injury to Springer that Rasmus does not appear to look at all comfortable in the right field corner. Additionally, it seems to be affecting his plate approach some. The veteran outfielder can get himself easily out of any jam. When that will actually happen remains to be seen. Fantasy holders can keep an eye on Rasmus, but don't go all in on him.

Making another right field start during Wednesday afternoon's 6-2 series clinching victory over the New York Yankees, Colby Rasmus went 1-for-3 with a 4th inning single. He also tallied a pair of strikeouts and was ejected from the game in the 5th inning upon his second strikeout. Rasmus has held his average steady at .230 on the season.

Fantasy Impact: It's always a frustrating thing when a player or coach is ejected. The one positive that can be taken away from all of this is that Rasmus still tallied a single and displayed the kind of passion the team needs going down the stretch to potentially win it all. Fantasy holders don't have to go all in on Rasmus, but should still keep an eye on him in the coming games.

Manning right field during Tuesday evening's 15-1 routing victory over the New York Yankees, Colby Rasmus went 2-for-5 with a triple and double. Both of these hits tallied 2 more RBI for him. While also getting a pair of fly outs and a ground out in the game, Rasmus has bumped his average back up slightly to .229 on the season.

Fantasy Impact: Rasmus has been making great strides lately. This particular past outing is one that should provide enough of a confidence boost for the veteran outfielder. Fantasy holders should expect Rasmus to continue getting better with each passing game, and keep an eye on him for the future.

Shifting back to right field during Monday evening's 1-0 shutout loss to the New York Yankees, Colby Rasmus could not get a hit. He went 0-for-3 with a line out, fly out, strikeout, and a drawn walk all collectively in the game. Rasmus has taken another hit in his average, down now to .226 on the season.

Fantasy Impact: It's a tad frustrating at this point to see Rasmus in this kind of slump. The veteran outfielder has been there before, and managed to get himself out of it. The hope is that he can get out of this current skid soon enough. Fantasy holders should tread lightly on Rasmus for now.

Manning left field again during Saturday evening's 3-1 series clinching victory over the Los Angeles Dodgers, Colby Rasmus went 0-for-3 in the game. Unfortunately, all 3 plate appearances tallied for strikeouts. Rasmus has taken a dive in his average, down now to .229 on the season.

Fantasy Impact: It should come as now surprise that the power hitting veteran outfielder also currently sits in the top 10 in the league in punch outs. The hope was that matching his left handed bat against the right handed pitching of Greinke may have helped to get him some more hits. Sadly, that was not to be. In light of this most recent performance, fantasy holders may still want to keep a close eye on Rasmus going forward.

Switching over to left field during Friday evening's 3-0 no-hitter shutout victory over the Los Angeles Dodgers, Colby Rasmus was unable to advance. He went 0-for-3 with a pair of ground outs and a strikeout collectively in the game. Rasmus has slipped in his average a bit, which is down now to .231 on the season.

Fantasy Impact: This is another one of those usual dry spells for Rasmus. The veteran outfielder will get out of this, as his career numbers have shown. However, the timetable on that is, like anything else in this sport, unknown. Fantasy holders may want tap the breaks on Rasmus, at least for the next little while.

Manning right field during Thursday evening's 1-0 shutout loss to the Tampa Bay Rays, Colby Rasmus went 1-for-3 with a single in the 5th inning. He also tallied a ground out and a fly out collectively in the game. Rasmus has held his average steady at .233 on the season.

Fantasy Impact: Having faced Chris Archer a few times as a divisional rival when he was a Blue Jay, it is no surprise that Rasmus was the only one in the lineup that had the Rays ace figured out. The career numbers of the veteran outfielder indicate that he will hold his offensive form for a while. Fantasy holders that do not Rasmus on their roster will still want to keep an eye on him.

Shifting between both right and left field during Tuesday evening's 3-2 extra innings walk of victory over the Tampa Bay Rays, Colby Rasmus could not get on base. He went 0-for-4 with a whopping 3 strikeouts and grounded into a double play with the bases loaded. Rasmus took a slight dip in his average, down now to .233 on the season.

Fantasy Impact: The opportunities for Rasmus were certainly there in this past outing. Unfortunately, he came short in each at bat. While frustrating, the veteran outfielder will surely break out of this funk soon, as his career numbers would indicate. Fantasy holders may want to, however, temporarily bench Rasmus for a little while.

Shifting back to right field during Monday evening's 9-2 loss to the Tampa Bay Rays, Colby Rasmus could not get a hit. He went 0-for-4 with a pair of ground outs, a strikeout and a fly out all collectively in the game. Rasmus has kept his average steady at .236 on the season.

Fantasy Impact: The cruelty of the game has shifted its focus to Rasmus. From the pair of yard bombs one day to not getting a hit the next, the veteran outfielder is feeling the sting of those cruelty claws being pierced at him. But fantasy holders should not expect this dry spell to last very long, and should continue to keep an eye on Rasmus going forward.

Shifting to left field during Sunday afternoon’s 7-6 series clinching walk off victory over the Detroit Tigers, Colby Rasmus went 2-for-4 with both hits tallying for two more home runs on the year. He also tallied a pop out and a strikeout collectively in the game. Rasmus has bumped his average up to .239 and is now in a three way tie for second place in club leading home runs.

Fantasy Impact: If ever there was a thing to give the veteran outfielder confidence going forward as the season winds down, this past outing for Rasmus is surely it. While his power is well known, it is a rarity for him to belt more than one homer in a game. It has happened before, but not a whole lot. Regardless, fantasy holders should keep a close eye on Rasmus in the coming games.

Standing in at right field during Saturday evening’s 4-2 extra innings loss to the Detroit Tigers, Colby Rasmus did not get a hit. He went 0-for-4 with a pair of strikeouts, a pop out, and a fly out collectively in the game. Rasmus took a slight dip in his average, down now to .236 on the season.

Fantasy Impact: Since George Springer has been cleared to resume baseball activities, Rasmus himself must be counting down the days until his teammates return. While making some decent plays defensively, the veteran outfielder has been having a hard time at the plate since having to be placed out in right field more. Fantasy holders should still, however, keep an eye on Rasmus in the coming games.

Making a start in center field for the first time in a while during Wednesday afternoon's 2-0 shutout victory over the San Francisco Giants, Colby Rasmus went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in the top of the 7th inning and a drawn walk. He also tallied a pop out and a strikeout collectively in the game. Rasmus has kept to a solid and steady .239 average on the season.

Fantasy Impact: The home run ball hit by Rasmus was so powerful, it winded up in the bay outside the stadium. That's the traditional type of hits that brings spectators nearby even outside. Rasmus gave quite the souvenir with that bomb, and appears to be getting his groove back at the plate. Fantasy holders should keep a close eye on Rasmus for now.

Keeping to right field during Sunday afternoon's 5-4 series clinching loss to the Oakland Athletics, Colby Rasmus had a stellar day at the plate.

Rasmus has made a nice jump in his average, up now to .238 on the season.

Fantasy Impact: The late inning heroics of Rasmus were thwarted by his own team's bullpen. It must be a frustrating thing for the veteran outfielder, as he had one of his best plate days in a little while. Fantasy holders should keep a close eye on Rasmus, and invest if the opportunity presents itself.

Holding at right field during Saturday afternoon's 2-1 loss to the Oakland Athletics, Colby Rasmus went 1-for-4 with a 5th inning single. He also tallied a ground out, fly out and a strikeout collectively in the game. Rasmus has held his average steady at .234 on the season.

Fantasy Impact: Rasmus noticeably had more plate patience, despite only getting one hit. If this trend continues, the veteran outfielder will be quickly due for another one of his offensive breakouts. Fantasy holders should keep an eye on Rasmus going forward.

Fantasy Impact: In spite of his batting slump lately, Rasmus is still making the necessary plays defensively that would, in some cases, even rival what Springer has done. It is unclear how long this latest skid from the veteran outfielder will last. However, fantasy holders should still keep an eye to Rasmus, for now.

Fantasy Impact: Rasmus has certainly been doing his part in the absence of George Springer. While he may not have the same speed, Rasmus does have the same kind of outfield focus necessary for a veteran such as himself. Fantasy holders should keep a close eye on Rasmus for now.

Fantasy Impact: There have been some to suggest that Rasmus should make the shift from right field back to left field. This is a sentiment that I happen to agree with, as right field has proven to be a bit troublesome for the veteran outfielder defensively. Fantasy holders will still want to keep an eye on Rasmus for the time being.

Getting another right field start during Tuesday evening's 4-3 series clinching loss to the Texas Rangers, Colby Rasmus went 0-for-1 with a strikeout and a jaw dropping 3 walks drawn in the game. He has kept his average steady and solid at .236 on the season.

Fantasy Impact: With the power he possesses, it was a strange thing to see Rasmus draw that many walks in one game. Though a welcomed thing, the veteran outfielder does not usually do that. But fantasy holders should expect more of the same from Rasmus in the coming games, and keep a close eye on him going forward.

Fantasy Impact: Things were not going the way of Rasmus defensively in this past outing. Too many line drives were slipping through the massive gaps at Globe Life Park, leaving the veteran outfielder to pick up too much slack. But fantasy holders need not panic on Rasmus, and should continue to monitor him going forward.

Taking to right field during Saturday evening's 9-2 routing victory over the Arizona Diamondbacks, Colby Rasmus went 2-for-3 with a pair of singles. He also grounded into a force out and was hit by a pitch. Rasmus has kept to a steady and solid .237 average on the season.

Fantasy Impact: Just like that, Rasmus calmed himself down some at the plate. The results were beneficial for both him and the team. This veteran outfielder will be another one in the lineup that continues to just get better with each passing game. Fantasy holders should keep a very close eye on Rasmus, and invest if given the opportunity.

Fantasy Impact: It's no secret that Rasmus has been having a plate struggle as of late. No one can really explain why, but the veteran outfielder appears to be doing too much too quickly. Fantasy holders should keep an eye on Rasmus, but wait to put your chips all in on him just yet.

Fantasy Impact: It will be very interesting to see what a potential combination of veterans in both Rasmus and the newly acquired Gomez will make. By all accounts, Rasmus can still provide more of the power pop, while Gomez lays down more of the speed. Fantasy holders should certainly keep an eye on Rasmus, especially in the coming weeks.

He had a sac fly RBI to score Luis Valbuena in the bottom of the 5th inning, along with the walk, a strikeout, and a ground out collectively throughout the game. Rasmus has his average holding steady at .236 on the season.

He also tallied a strikeout and a fly out collectively throughout the game. Rasmus has made a nice climb in his average, up now to .237 on the season.

Fantasy Impact: The veteran Rasmus came through yet again in this past outing. Not only did he get the lone Astros RBI, he also made a stellar throw and putout to third base. He is an outfield force to be reckoned with for sure. Fantasy holders will want to keep an eye out for what Rasmus will do next.

Fantasy Impact: Rasmus has been filling in tremendously on defense out in right field for George Springer. But this was a game in which his bat certainly got jammed. The veteran outfielder will, as he has his whole career, find a way back to offensive form. Fantasy holders should certainly keep an eye on Rasmus.

Fantasy Impact: The great thing about having a veteran outfielder like Rasmus is that can be used in any corner. Luckily for him and the rest of the team, skipper A.J. Hinch decided to remain more consistent with those chosen to play out in the field. Fantasy holders should keep an eye on Rasmus, and consider investing in him, should the opportunity arise.

Entering late during the 5-4 series sweeping victory over the Boston Red Sox, Colby Rasmus went 1-for-2 with his 13th home run of the year. While also flying out in the 9th, Rasmus has seen a nice jump in his average, up now to .236 on the season.

Fantasy Impact: The outfield platooning that skipper A.J. Hinch has been implementing lately is a bit of a puzzle. Whatever the reason, veterans like Rasmus are doing the right things at just the right time. The career numbers on him indicate that this trend will most assuredly continue. Fantasy holders may want to invest in Rasmus, if you have not already.

Tallying in every offensive category, Colby Rasmus got another start in right field during Sunday afternoon's 10-0 shutout and series clinching victory over the Texas Rangers.

Rasmus has kept his average steady at .234 on the season.

Fantasy Impact: Rasmus truly looked more relaxed at the plate, despite only getting the one home run. Should he continue this throughout the rest of the season, there will be no limit to what the veteran outfielder can do. Fantasy holders should hold onto Rasmus with full confidence!

Shifting between two outfield positions, Colby Rasmus went 1-for-4 during Saturday evening’s 7-6 loss to the Texas Rangers. He had a 9th inning double, as well as a pop out, line out, and strikeout all collectively throughout the game. His average made a slight climb up to .234 on the season.

Fantasy Impact: The most recent problem with Rasmus is his attempt to carry too much weight on his shoulders. The veteran outfielder should always remember that his team and the fans will always have his back, and should always remain calm in the batter’s box. Fantasy holders should retain or invest in Rasmus with confidence!

Shifting again to right field during Friday evening's 3-2 victory over the Texas Rangers, Colby Rasmus could not get a hit. He went 0-for-3 with a pair of strikeouts and grounding into a double play. He did, however, get on base by way of drawing another walk. Rasmus dropped his average down to .233 to start the second half of the season.

Fantasy Impact: It is upsetting for any player to start a second half on a dry spell. Unfortunately, that is what is currently happening for Rasmus. It should not take long for him to find that groove in the batter's box again, but the timetable for that remains an uncertainty. Fantasy holders may want to consider a temporary benching of the talented veteran outfielder.

The career numbers on him suggest that will not be a problem. Fantasy holders should keep an eye on Rasmus to be much improved after the break.

It is uncertain how soon he will do so, but fans and fantasy holders should retain, or invest in, Colby Rasmus with confidence.

Rasmus went 1-for-3 with the homerun and a walk. He improved his batting average to .236.

Fantasy Impact: For the second straight day, Rasmus avoided being struck out. He followed a 2-for-4 day with today's homerun. Perhaps, he's ready to get on a roll again, and could be worth a flier in DFS lineups.

Fantasy Impact: This game marks the sixth game in a row Rasmus has gotten on-base. His 19 strikeouts in 15 games remain a concern. He's still a decent player to round out a DFS roster, if you're trying to fit in expensive players, like Adrian Gonzalez or Mike Trout.

Fantasy Impact: Rasmus has been awful to start the year with a batting average of .200, a BABIP of .250 and a measly contact rate at 60.0. Last season, his contact rate finished at 64.2 with a walk rate of 7.7, which is very similar to this year. In short, he's not worth an add on any league and should only be a desperate option in DFS.

Colby Rasmus with a double

By R. A. Beltran

Batting seventh in the order, Rasmus went 1-for-4 with a double.

Fantasy Impact: After hitting a big homerun on Friday night, Rasmus disappointed his fantasy owners with just one double in a hitters' park. He remains a fringe asset in deep leagues, and should only be considered as a spot starter in DFS.

Rasmus came in the ninth to replace Grossman, and he hit a ninth inning two-run homerun.

Fantasy Impact: Rasmus has struggled to start the season. Perhaps, this will boost his confidence and get him going. He remains a marginal asset in season-long leagues. However, he holds some value as a low-salary option in DFS.

Rasmus got the start in the outfield for the Astros. He hit eighth in the order, and had one strikeout in three at-bats.

Fantasy Impact: Rasmus had another favorable lefty versus righty matchup, but he did not make anything out of it. He faces another righty in Trevor Bauer on Thursday, but Rasmus is priced at $2,900 in Fan Duel. For someone who hits eighth in the order, the price appears steep.

The Astros faced right-handed, Cy Young winner Corey Kluber. As a lefty, Rasmus got the start and went 1-for-2 with one walk and one strikeout.

Fantasy Impact: The Astros will split time with Jake Marisnick in center field. Rasmus should get most of the starts against right-handed pitchers, and he could be a low salary option for DFS. However, be mindful that he will bat near the end of the order.

Colby Rasmus went 0-for-3 on Friday evening against the Kansas City Royals. Unfortunately, all plate appearances turned up strikeouts.

Fantasy Impact: Rasmus has had a slow spring to this point, but today's outing should help him to find his groove once more. He is projected to be the starting center fielder come opening day. However, Jake Marisnick sits waiting in the wings, should Rasmus suffer another bad slump. Draft cautiously, fantasy holders.

Fantasy Impact: Rasmus has a batting average that currently stands at questionable and slightly disheartening .208. While he is the projected starting center fielder, his bat must do more to come alive. Otherwise, Marisnick or Grossman may steal center field right out from underneath him.

Colby Rasmus went 1-for-3 with a single and a strikeout against the Mets on Tuesday.

Fantasy Impact: Rasmus had a decent day at the plate, but wasn't able to shift his stock in any way. He's vying for a starting OF job, but with his struggles this spring (and Robbie Grossman's excellence) it is uncertain if he'll get one. Until Rasmus has confirmed playing time he should be drafted only in AL-Only leagues as a moderate power/low average player.

Colby Rasmus went 1-for-2 with a HR, a walk, and three runs scored on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: Rasmus finally had another good day at the plate, something he sorely needed as he has struggled this spring. He's vying for a starting spot in the Houston OF, but for now playing time is not guaranteed. Until that is confirmed Rasmus should only be drafted in AL-Only leagues, especially considering his batting average struggles as of late.

Colby Rasmus went 0-for-2 with a walk and a strikeout against the Mets on Thurday.

Fantasy Impact: Rasmus hasn't been able to find his swing consistently this spring. His average is sitting at around .150, and only the occasional display of his power has redeemed him at all thus far. Rasmus is trying to secure a spot in the crowded Astros outfield, but is having a rough go of it, and if he doesn't do so then he is not viable in fantasy. Don't draft him except in AL-Only leagues, and be cautious with your optimism.

Colby Rasmus hits a HR

Sat, Mar 14th 8:30pm EDT
By Eric Townsend

Colby Rasmus went 1-for-3 with a home run against the Braves on Saturday.

Fantasy Impact: It was nice to see Rasmus get his power stroke working as he had been cold so far this spring. He isn't guaranteed a starting OF job, but is ahead of players like Jake Marisnick and Robbie Grossman to secure one of the three spots. Until Rasmus is confirmed to have a starting gig he is a risky pick for fantasy, especially considering his batting average struggles outside of his solid 2013 year. He does provide some power, but proceed with caution.

Colby Rasmus draws two walks

Colby Rasmus went 0-for-1 with two walks Thursday against the Detroit Tigers.

Fantasy Impact: Rasmus is batting .167 to start spring training. With Robbie Grossman on a tear with a BA of .543 to open the year, Rasmus will need to work off the rust. Keep an eye on this situation as spring training progresses, if Rasmus continues to struggle, which limits his playing time, his fantasy value will take a nosedive.

Colby Rasmus went 1-for-2 (including a ground rule double), with two RBIs, and a run scored against the Cardinals. He also walked and struck out once.

Fantasy Impact: Rasmus had a nice day at the plate on Tuesday, helping his cause toward getting consistent playing time for Houston. The Astros outfield is crowded, but Rasmus has a bat that will be hard-pressed to keep on the bench. For now consider him a late round/low $ player in AL-Only leagues, and someone to watch on the wire in mixed leagues.

By Dan Schalk

Colby Rasmus reached base twice Sunday drawing walks in his first two plate appearances.

Fantasy Impact: Rasmus is competing for playing time in the suddenly crowded Astros outfield. With Robbie Grossman on fire to start the spring, Rasmus is not a lock for solid playing time. Until the at-bats are there, Rasmus should stay on the waiver wire.

According to Peter Gammons, the Orioles are making a push towards a one-year deal with Colby Rasmus. (Source: Peter Gammons on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Rasmus fits the Orioles' need for an outfield bat. Although he hit only .225/.287/.448 in 2014, Rasmus is just one year removed from a .276/.338/.501 season. If he reaches a deal with the Orioles, Rasmus could be in line for a bounce back season in 2015.
