Latest Update Matt Dominguez hits 13th home run Tue Jul, 29, 08:07 AM
Has great defensive instincts and a strong arm at the hot corner. Boasts big-time power and run-production potential, as well.
Flaws: : Needs to improve his plate discipline and cut down on his number of strikeouts in order to maximize his potential with the bat.
Although Dominguez is hitting only .233 on the season, he has now managed to go yard 13 times while driving in 44 RBI through 395 at-bats. He remains on track to pass last season's home runs total (21 HR) and is a solid power option for down the stretch as long as you are able to counter his poor batting average with a solid surrounding cast.

Wow. Talk about the end of a slump. After going 0-for-20 over his last six games, dragging his already dismal average to a new low of .235, Dominguez finally bounced back with his first home run in nine games. He's always been in that mold of good power/lousy average, so some of these numbers are to be expected. But while he is pleasantly on-track to break the 220-homer barrier for the second consecutive season, we'd at least like to see him keep that average over .250 so it's not too much of a drain.Analyst: Howard Bender
Dominguez has been a solid source of power for the Astros in 2014, now sitting on a .253 average with 10 home runs and 34 RBI through 269 at-bats. As long as you are not in a points league that accounts for strikeouts (23.0 percent K Rate), Dominguez will certainly help a fantasy team more than hurt it if he keeps up his pace from the first two and a half month of the season.

Dominguez has been a nice source of power for both the Astros and his fantasy owners in 2014, now sitting with 10 home runs and 32 RBI through his first 265 at-bats. Although both his batting average (.253 BA) and strikeout rate (22.6) may bring his value down slightly, he has shows signs of improvement now sitting on a career-high .066 BB/PA. He is a must-own for those in need of a power surge while performing at the best level of his young career. Analyst: Matthew Beck
