Ramos saw his first action of the season Saturday, but the Rays will keep him from starting consecutive games for the time being, and a team day off Monday will give him extra opportunity to rest. Jesus Sucre will be tasked with manning the backstop for the series finale.
Beckham missed time earlier in the week due to a left hand contusion, but returned to action Friday and got the starting nod Saturday as well, where he went 0-for-2 and walked twice. With a team day off on the schedule for Monday, a break Sunday will allow Beckham multiple days off to ensure any lingering effects of the injury are behind him. In the meantime, Daniel Robertson will take over at shortstop.
Reddick's hit safely in all four games since coming off the concussion list, going 8-for-17 with six extra-base hits (two homers), seven runs and three RBI. He tends to get lost amid Houston's lineup of stars but has been a good contributor during his first season as an Astro. He's currently at career highs in batting average (.295), slugging (.493) and OPS (.845). Defensively, the Gold Glove-winning right fielder (2012) has shown some versatility, moving over to left field when needed as he did Saturday when he made two nice diving catches.
None of Harrison's numbers jump off the page, but his cross-category production makes him a valuable fantasy commodity. He's sporing a .294/.374/.463 slash line with nine homers, 26 RBI, nine stolen bases and 32 runs. His consistent playing time will also help him continue to provide serviceable counting stats.
Carpenter snapped a three-game hit drought with the bomb and now has five home runs, 13 RBI, 15 runs and a .953 OPS through 22 June games. The veteran is struggling to improve on his underwhelming .236 batting average, but his 14 homers, 40 RBI and 29 runs are solid fantasy marks.
The wrist that Nick Castellanos ran into Saturday was the same wrist that required Myers to undergo season-ending surgery in 2015, according to Dennis Lin of The San Diego Union-Tribune. The fact that the slugger stayed in the game is a positive sign that he avoided an injury, but this is certainly a situation to monitor considering the effect wrist injuries -- even minor -- can have on a hitter's power. Myers is currently slashing .258/.329/.470 with 14 home runs and nine steals through 79 games.
It was Flores' fourth homer of the month, and he now sports a respectable .280/.295/.524 slash line with 10 RBI and 12 runs through 21 June games. He's playing consistently and offers nice power upside for a hitter eligible as a middle infielder. Flores is also in line for a career-best season and checks out as a serviceable fantasy asset.
The veteran first baseman is turning in a serviceable fantasy campaign with a .266/.359/.463 slash line, 10 homers, 38 RBI and 37 runs. He's also heating up in June with four homers and an .871 OPS through 15 games this month.
The 25-year-old has started two consecutive games since being recalled from the minors, and he appears to be taking over at the keystone for the Padres while Yangervis Solarte (oblique) recovers on the disabled list. Asuaje didn't offer much power or speed during his 62-game stint with Triple-A El Paso, but if he can carry over his ability to get on base (.369 on-base percentage) to the majors, then there is some potential for run production if he continues to bat second in the lineup.
While Price wasn't at his best Saturday, he was also a victim of a lack of run support Saturday. The lefty owns a 4.76 ERA, 1.35 WHIP and 7.7 K/9 through his six starts this season, and his 5.76 FIP is a career-high mark. After missing almost all of the first two months of the season, Price has struggled to find his form. The upside is there, and Boston has championship aspirations, so Price remains a must-own hurler in all fantasy settings. A home start against the Twins is on tap for the veteran.
