Astros' Myles Straw: Swipes first bag

Straw went 1-for-3 with two RBI and a stolen base in Thursday's 6-2 win over Oakland.Straw's speed is his greatest asset, and he'll need to reach base consistently for fantasy managers to cash in on that skill. He's reached base safely in six straight contests, including five times via the walk, and has a .357 on-base percentage to start the season. If he maintains the high OBP, continues to take walks, Straw could easily crack double-digit steals.

Astros' Myles Straw: Slow ramp up

Straw batted eighth and went 1-for-3 with a walk in Tuesday's 4-2 win over the Angels.Straw has reached base safely in five of the first six games, a stretch that includes five walks, but he's been a forgotten member in the productive Astros lineup. When he's started games, Straw has batted eighth and overall is hitting .200 (4-for-20) with no extra-base hits and one RBI. He hasn't been much of a replacement for the departed George Springer, but his limited production hasn't hurt the team. Houston can get by with his defense and middling production for now.
