by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Hoes has been on a tear lately for Oklahoma City, batting .421 with a .511 on-base percentage, .553 slugging percentage and 1.064 OPS in his last 10 games. He has one home run, two doubles, seven RBI, 11 runs and three stolen bases in that span.

For the season, Hoes has a .323/.402/.409/.810 OPS in 25 games. He also has one home run, five doubles, 12 RBI, 14 runs, 12 walks, 18 strikeouts and four stolen bases.

Hoes down to the minors. Grossman is expected to be the everyday left fielder moving forward, according to the Houston Chronicle.

L.J. Hoes out of lineup Wednesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5/21/2014) Astros outfielder L.J. Hoes is not in the starting lineup for Wednesday's game against the Angels.

Hoes missed Tuesday's game with a stomach illness that got him sent home before the game started. He has hit .226/.200/.371 in 62 at-bats.


L.J. Hoes out Tuesday with illness


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5/20/2014) Astros outfielder L.J. Hoes was sent back to his team's hotel Tuesday due to a stomach illness, the Houston Chronicle reports.

"We don’t know if it’s food poisoning or what it is," manager Bo Porter said.

Hoes was slated to get the start Tuesday with a lefty on the mound before the illness made him unavailable. He has hit .226/.200/.371 in 62 at-bats.


L.J. Hoes clubs second homer in win vs. Rangers


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5/13/2014) Astros outfielder L.J. Hoes went 2 for 4 with a home run, three RBI and two runs scored in his team's 8-0 win over the Rangers Tuesday.

Hoes got out to a slow start this season but he's been solid over his last four games, going 6 for 9 over that stretch. Even with the uptick in performance, he has hit just .214/.286/.339 with two home runs and six RBI in 56 at-bats.


Astros likely to use platoon in right field


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/30/2014) Astros manager Bo Porter said it's likely outfielders Alex Presley and L.J. Hoes will platoon in right field, according to The Houston Chronicle.

L.J. Hoes: not just for category leagues


by Al Melchior | Data Analyst
(8/26/2013) Earlier this month, my colleague Nando Di Fino presaged the steals potential that L.J. Hoes could provide Fantasy owners. Despite relatively modest minor league stolen base totals, Hoes hasn't disappointed in the category, providing seven steals in 22 games with the Astros.

While steals don't mean as much to owners in points leagues, Hoes has been offering value in those formats, as well as in category leagues. Over the last 21 days, Hoes ranks 13th among outfielders in Fantasy points. A .364 batting average has been key to his success, and while he may not hit .300 the rest of the way, Hoes could still provide value to owners in deeper mixed and AL-only points leagues. He has shown some doubles and triples power in the upper minors, has drawn walks at a high rate and hasn't struck out much.

Hoes isn't likely to produce enough home runs, RBI or runs to matter to owners in standard mixed leagues, but his plate discipline alone should earn him more owners in deeper formats.


L.J. Hoes has first home run with Astros


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(8/19/2013) Outfielder L.J. Hoes had his first home run with the Astros during Sunday's 7-5 win against the Angels. Hoes, who hit a solo home run off Jason Vargas, finished 3 for 4 with two runs.

Hoes has managed multiple hits in seven of his last 11 games. He's batting .386 (17 for 44) with a .614 slugging percentage, 1.027 OPS, one home run, one RBI, one walk, two triples, three doubles, three stolen bases and 11 runs in that span.


L.J. Hoes has some stolen base value


by Nando Di Fino | Senior Fantasy Writer
(8/6/2013) Astros outfielder L.J. Hoes -- acquired in a deadline deal with the Orioles -- has started three of five games since the trade, hitting .357 with a double and two steals in 14 at-bats.

The two steals for Hoes are a little surprising. While he can steal bases, he hasn't done it with such frequency in the past. In fact, Hoes has stolen exactly 20 bases three times in his minor league career -- all tied for his career-best. 

Whether this is a new philosophy for Hoes or just a small sample size remains to be seen. One of his stolen bases came at the hands of Jarrod Saltalamacchia, who has allowed the second-most steals of any catcher in the majors this season.

Hoes is worth an add in AL-only Roto formats (pretty much any player with semi-regular at-bats is), but owners in shallower leagues should keep an eye on him; if the speed continues, he could be worth a waiver pickup for some late-season help in steals.  


L.J. Hoes traded to Houston


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3:47 pm ET) The Astros acquired outfielder L.J. Hoes from the Orioles Wednesday as part of the Bud Norris trade. Hoes is 0 for 4 in three career MLB games, but he hit .286 with a .366 on-base percentage, .380 slugging percentage and .746 OPS in 643 minor-league games.

Hoes was considered the Orioles' seventh-best prospect by MLB.com.


Orioles have L.J. Hoes in lineup


by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com
(7/28/2013) The Orioles officially recalled outfielder L.J. Hoes from Triple-A Norfolk Sunday. Hoes got the start against the Red Sox as he was batting eighth and playing left field. Jairo Asencio was designated for assignment to make room on the roster. 

Orioles send for L.J. Hoes


by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com
(7/27/2013) The Orioles have sent for Triple-A Norfolk outfielder L.J. Hoes Saturday, The Baltimore Sun reports. Hoes could be activated for Sunday's game against the Red Sox. 

Hoes, who played in two games with the Orioles as a late-season callup last year and went 0 for 1, has been playing with Norfolk all year. He's been impressing with a .304 batting average, 25 doubles, three homers, 40 RBI, seven stolen bases and 62 runs scored with just 56 strikeouts. 


Reports on Orioles' outfield prospect upbeat


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(5/13/2013) Orioles outfield prospect L.J. Hoes has turned it around offensively at Triple-A Norfolk following a slow start. Hoes is batting .379 in his last 18 games after batting .209 through his first 14 games, raising his season average to .292.

Hoes also has a .386 on-base percentage, one home run, nine doubles, 17 runs and 18 RBI in 32 games. Hoes entered the season as the Orioles' sixth-best prospect, according to MLB.com.

"R.J's (manager Ron Johnson) reports on him have been very good," Orioles director of player development Brian Graham said, per MLB.com. "That he is seeing the ball, using the middle of the field, staying on breaking balls. L.J. does a good job of seeing the ball and getting a good pitch to hit. Anytime that hitters recognize pitches and get a good pitch to try and hit they give themselves a chance for success. L.J. does a good job in that area."


Orioles option L.J. Hoes


by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com
(3/17/2013) The Orioles optioned outfielder L.J. Hoes to Triple-A Norfolk following Sunday's Grapefruit League game, reports the Baltimore Sun

Hoes batted .320 in 16 spring games for the Orioles and made his major-league debut last year. "I think the thing I was most impressed with is how far he came defensively," manager Buck Showalter said of Hoes. "He played a good outfield here." 


Hoes moves to instructional league


by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com
(9/29/2012) The Orioles added Steve Pearce off waivers Saturday and sent L.J. Hoes to the instructional league for some at-bats. Hoes, the organization's minor league player of the year on offense, was not getting at-bats while up with Baltimore.
