Michael Brantley had a big day at the plate on Tuesday versus the Rangers, going 2-for-4 with a homer, a walk, and four RBI.
Brantley's performance wasn't enough, however, as the Astros wound up losing 6-5 in 10 innings. The homer was a big one as it gave Houston the lead in the eighth inning. The 33-year-old outfielder missed some time with a quad injury earlier this summer but should be ready to rock and roll the rest of the way. Fantasy managers shouldn't expect a ton of power but a good batting average and an even better OBP are likely.
