Astros' Jake Marisnick out of lineup Tuesday vs. A's


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5/19/2015) Astros center fielder Jake Marisnick is not in the starting lineup for Tuesday's game against the A's.

It's just the second time in 20 games that Marisnick hasn't manned center field, with Colby Rasmus sliding over to cover the position. Marisnick has hit better against righties than lefties despite being a righty swinger, but he'll take a seat against Oakland righty Sonny Gray.

The Astros are home underdogs (+135) on Tuesday, per VegasInsider.com.


Jake Marisnick out of Astros' lineup Saturday, Colby Rasmus in CF


by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer
(5/16/2015) Centerfielder Jake Marisnick is out of the Astros' lineup Saturday against the Blue Jays with Colby Rasmus getting the nod in center and batting sixth.

Astros' Jose Altuve back to lead-off spot on Friday vs. Blue Jays


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(5/15/2015) For the first time since May 8, Astros second baseman Jose Altuve is in the lead-off spot on Friday against the Blue Jays. Altuve has been hitting second over the last five games, while Jake Marisnick was atop of the batting order.

But Marisnick struggled as the lead-off batter for manager A.J. Hinch, going just 3 for 21 over that stretch. Marisnick is being dropped back down to ninth in the order with Altuve back in the lead-off spot. 


Astros move Jake Marisnick to lead off spot for Saturday's game


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(5/9/2015) Astros center fielder Jake Marisnick has been bumped up to lead off in Houston's batting order for Saturday's game against the Angels, moving Jose Altuve to second, the team announced.

It's the first time all season someone other than Altuve will lead off for Houston. Marisnick, who has hit in the bottom third of the lineup all year, is hitting .325 with three home runs in 83 at-bats this season. However, Marisnick is hitting .121 in 33 at-bats from the lead off role. 

"I'm excited," Altuve said. 'It's fun. … I'm kind of hoping we feed off each other and get rolling and get this offense going a little bit. We've been a little bit sluggish here the last couple of games. It would be nice to get it rolling."


Astros CF Jake Marisnick making most of opportunities in 2015


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(5/7/2015) The early part of the 2015 season has been a breakout campaign for Astros outfielder Jake Marisnick. The 24-year-old outfielder was acquired from the Marlins last season in the deal that sent pitcher Jarred Cosart to Miami. Marisnick was pretty much a part-time player with the Marlins.

Now, he has found himself playing regularly for manager A.J. Hinch, as he has started eight conseuctive starts in center field. And while he has cooled off over the last week or so, his hot start to the season has given him a .342 batting average, which ranks ninth in the American League entering play on Thursday.

It remains to be seen whether or not Marisnick, who is hitting about 100 points higher than his career batting average, can keep up this pace over the long haul. But for now, he is proving to be a nice find for the Astros.

Marisnick now has three home runs and his nine stolen bases are tied for second-most in baseball. He also sports a .383 batting average in 60 at-bats this season. He has been seeing regular playing time lately, starting eight of the team's previous nine games.

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

After going hitless in the first two games, Marisnick has hit safely in 15 of his last 17 games. He has a .407/.458/.667/1.124 slash line in that span. He is tied for second in the AL with eight stolen bases.

Marisnick has thrived against right-handed pitchers in 2015. He has a .450/.500/.675/1.175 slash line against righties, as opposed to .222/.222/.500/.722 slash line against lefties.

Astros center fielder Jake Marisnick may be sidelined until Monday


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(4/25/2015) Astros center fielder Jake Marisnick was able to hit and run Saturday, but the team is considering giving him off until Monday, according to the Houston Chronicle.

"Jake, we'll well monitor him day to day," manager A.J. Hinch said Saturday morning. "He's available but I'm going to try not to use him unless I have to. He's bouncing around fine. I'm hopeful for (Sunday), but if it's not (Sunday) and he needs another day we're going to still be cautious with him."

Marisnick finished with two hits, two runs, one RBI and a walk to sweeten his slash line to .361/.415/.556. Not bad considering he bats ninth.

He walked and scored in the third and singled in a run and scored in the eighth. He reached base in all four plate appearances and has hit safely in six of his last seven games.

Jake Marisnick, Jonathan Villar, Will Harris crack Astros' roster


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(4/1/2015) Astros outfielder Jake Marisnick, utility man Jonathan Villar and pitcher Will Harris have all been informed they will break camp with the big-league club, according to the Houston Chronicle.

It will be the first time Marisnick has cracked the Opening Day roster. The 24-year-old hit .306/.395/.500 this spring and is a candidate to play regularly at center field.

"It's going to feel like Christmas," Marisnick said.

Villar, 23, batted .209 during his second season in the majors in 2014. This spring, he slashed .256/.356/.436 over 39 at-bats.

"He's made some of the most spectacular plays of the spring, both in the outfield and in the infield," general manager Jeff Luhnow said of Villar. "It's a great story."

Harris, 30, will join Houston's bullpen this season after posting a 4.34 ERA last season with the Diamondbacks. He registered a 2.45 ERA, a 1.18 WHIP and 5:2 K:BB ratio over 11 innings this spring.


Astros' Springer OK with Marisnick starting in center field


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/30/2015) Astros outfielder George Springer has started 15 times in right field this spring and has yet to play an inning in center field. It appears the Astros are going to name Jake Marisnick the starter in center field, and that's fine with Springer, according to the Houston Chronicle.

“I’m going to go out there and I’m going to play the only way I know how," Springer said of starting in right field. “He obviously is extremely skilled. He’s extremely fast. I understand his range, he understands mine, and I think this spring has been good just because he’s so aggressive. I understand that and I’ m just going to let him run. He’s there when I need him to be and it’s the same way for him.”

Still, in the long run, Springer sees himself as a center fielder.

“I think I consider myself a center fielder playing right field, but I think anybody who has some speed considers that,” Springer said. “I’ve obviously had more repetitions there and kind of more game experience now (this spring). So it’s kind of one of those things where I can kind of also slow myself down more."


Marisnick to work in CF, Rasmus at corner OF spots early in camp


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(2/17/2015) Astros manager A.J. Hinch said Tuesday outfielder Jake Marisnick will play in center field at the outset of spring training, per MLB.com. He is considered one of the top candidates to start in center field for Houston.

Astros' Jake Marisnick early favorite to start in left field


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(1/21/2015) Astros outfielder Jake Marisnick appears to be the early leader to become the starting left fielder for Houston when the season begins, according to general manager Jeff Luhnow said Tuesday.

"I got to say, based on how Jake did at the end of last year, he’s going to be strong consideration for a starting spot," Luhnow said. "But you know, I think part of the theme of how we’re constructing the roster is there’s options at every position. … Based on what Jake did second half of last year with us, yeah, he deserves every opportunity to be a starting outfielder, and he’ll probably get (that opportunity)."

George Springer and newly signed Colby Rasmus are expected to start as well in the outfield, according to Luhnow. Marisnick is expected to compete with Robbie Grossman for left field.

Marisnick hit .249 in 221 at-bats in 2014 between Houston and the Marlins. He also added three home runs and 19 RBI.


Springer or Marisnick could start in center field for Astros


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(1/19/2015) The trade of Dexter Fowler opens up a starting job in center field for the Astros. Jake Marisnick or George Springer will likely start in center field, with the other playing in right field. Alex Presley and Robbie Grossman could also be backup options in center field.

"It's something [manager] A.J. [Hinch] and the staff is going to have to work through," general manager Jeff Luhnow said, per MLB.com. "Marisnick is a natural center fielder, and it's possible he's our opening day center fielder. Who knows? I think it's nice having guys with versatility."
