1B - HOU
Yuli Gurriel went 3-for-4 with a double and two runs scored in Houston's 7-3 win over the Rangers Tuesday.
Gurriel has been extremely disappointing this year. After a monstrous campaign in 2019, and hitting .319 last season, he has fallen flat on his face. Gurriel is hitting just .240 with a .288 OBP this year. On the bright side, he has 32 doubles. That's about where the good news ends.
Yuli Gurriel went 2-for-3 Saturday, singling twice and scoring one run in the Astros' 5-0 win over the Athletics.
Gurriel has picked up hits in five of his last seven games for the Astros, scoring two runs and driving in two runs in that span. The 38-year-old is hitting .235 with 31 runs scored, seven home runs, and 26 runs batted in through 82 games this season.
Astros 1B Yuli Gurriel connected on a solo home run off Angels starter Michael Lorenzen. He finished the game 1-for-3 with the home run, a walk and two runs scored in Houston's 8-1 win.
Gurriel is having a horrific season, relative to what he provided fantasy managers last season. The former All-Star hit just his 7th home run of the season Friday and is slashing .227 this season. This is however his second home run in four games, so maybe he will start to pick it up.
Yuli Gurriel chipped in for the Astros Tuesday, going 2-for-4 with a two-run home run. Houston crushed the Mets 9-1.
Gurriel is now in the middle of a modest five-game hit streak. This was his first home run in 10 days when he went deep in back-to-back games earlier this month. The former All-Star is hitting just .228 with six home runs and 21 RBI. Those are awful numbers compared to what he posted last year.
Yuli Gurriel had a big game for Houston on Friday. He finished 3-for-3 with a home run and two runs as Houston crushed Chicago 13-3.
Gurriel recorded his first three-hit game May 15th. The All-Star from last year has easily been one of the biggest disappointments in fantasy this year. He's hitting just .229 with a .281 on-base percentage. His home run Friday was just his fifth on the year. On the bright side, the Astros first baseman has hit safely in seven of his last eight games. Considering he is widely available in deep mixed leagues, fantasy managers would be wise to keep a keen eye on his production.
