Insight: That was the reason for his absence on Tuesday night. With just 14 hits in 62 at bats this season, Hoes isn't someone fantasy owners need to keep a close eye on.

Description: Houston left fielder L.J. Hoes broke out of an 0-for-20 slump by delivering three hits Thursday in a 6-2 win over the Tigers.
Insight: Hoes, the everyday right fielder before George Springer came to town, has fallen into a platoon with Alex Presley (.224, 3 HR, 7 RBI) in left field. Neither player has done enough to warrant a spot on any fantasy teams.
