Holliday has struggled for much of the year as he has just a .233 average on the season. Brandon Moss will take his place in left field and bat fifth though he is hitting in the .220s as well this year.
After Tuesday's four strikeout clunker, Story got Wednesday off. He's back in the lineup for Thursday's action looking to bounce back strong. Trevor has been the Story of the 2016 season thus far and despite striking out more than anyone else in baseball is still the number one fantasy option at shortstop.
Delabar has been awful for the Reds this season. By going to Triple-A, he may realize the market for him in free agency might be slim. In eight innings at the big league level, he's allowed six runs, walked 10 batters and posted a 6.75 ERA.
After being selected in the third-round, Miller signed his rookie deal on Thursday for four-years, worth $3.1 million. He also gets north of $700K worth of signing bonuses. Miller is making the transition from college quarterback to professional wide receiver and has obviously had quite the smooth transition since he was selected in the third-round. Miller's fantasy impact is up in the air at this point as he comes in as the Texans third receiver on the depth chart.
Tyler Flowers draws the start behind the dish and hits fourth as Pierzynski gets Thursday off. The two catchers are still virtually in a time share as Flowers will appear in his 25th game this year as Pierzynski has played in 28. Neither have had a good year and neither are worth an add in any fantasy format.
After playing in 15 games for the Astros this year, Kratz was released but found a new home on Thursday after being signed by the Angels. It's just a minor league contract but his ability to play defense caught the Angels attention and he'll have a chance to work his way back to the majors.
