Yuli Gurriel finished Sunday's 8-7 win with a single, a pair of doubles and a solo home run across five at-bats.

Gurriel's homer temporarily broke a tie in the seventh inning. He has hit safely in 14 of his past 16 outings, posting multi-hit performances in each of his past two and 10 of his past 21. He has raised his batting average from .243 to .295 just since May 3, helping the Astros to a season-high 17 games over .500.

Yuli Gurriel went 4-for-5 and knocked in three runs against the Diamondbacks on Friday.

Gurriel has raised his average from .220 to .280 in a six-game hitting streak. The power hasn't come yet, but that's not surprising, given that he's still just a couple of months removed from suffering a broken hamate bone.

Yuli Gurriel is not in the Astros' lineup Sunday.

It's a routine day of rest. Marwin Gonzalez is at first base and Derek Fisher is in left field.

Yuli Gurriel went 2-for-5 and crunched a three-run homer in Saturday's loss to the Rangers.

He pounced on a Mike Minor offering to give his club a 5-0 lead in the fourth inning but the Astros wouldn't score again and ended up losing in extra innings. This was Gurriel's second game after being activated from the disabled list on Friday.
Apr 14 - 7:57 PM

Astros activated 1B Yuli Gurriel from the 10-day disabled list.

Gurriel has been out all season following surgery to remove the hamate bone in his left hand. A player's power can often be sapped when they come back from the procedure, so it's something for fantasy owners to keep in mind. Gurriel put up a .299/.332/.486 batting line with 18 home runs and 75 RBI for last year's World Champs.
Apr 13 - 3:42 PM

Yuli Gurriel (hand) is expected to be in the Astros' starting lineup on Friday.

Gurriel has reported to Minute Maid Park in Houston after going 9-for-21 (.429) with four doubles and three RBI on his five-game minor league rehab assignment. The 33-year-old first baseman was placed on the disabled list April 2 after serving a five-game suspension for an inappropriate gesture toward Yu Darvish in last year's World Series. He underwent surgery in late February to address a fractured hamate bone in his left hand.
Apr 11 - 11:50 AM

Yuli Gurriel (hand) is set to begin a minor league rehab assignment with Double-A Corpus Christi on Thursday.

Gurriel is eligible to be activated from the 10-day disabled list next Friday -- April 13 -- and all signs point to him being ready on that date. The 33-year-old first baseman needed surgery in late February to address a fractured hamate bone in his left hand, but he's made a swift recovery. Gurriel slashed .299/.332/.486 with 18 home runs and 75 RBI in 139 regular-season games last season for the World Series-champion Astros.
Apr 5 - 11:36 AM

Astros placed 1B Yuli Gurriel on the 10-day disabled list with a left hand injury.

Houston was hoping that Gurriel might be ready to join the active roster after he got done serving his five-game suspension for an insensitive gesture toward Yu Darvish in last year's World Series, but the 33-year-old first baseman needs some tune-up at-bats in the minor leagues. There has been no setback with his surgically-repaired hand and he should be ready to rock in exactly 10 days. Marwin Gonzalez and J.D. Davis have been sharing time at first base for the Astros.
Apr 2 - 10:35 PM

Astros manager A.J. Hinch suggested Monday that Yuli Gurriel (hand) might not join the active roster on Tuesday.

Gurriel is eligible to return from his five-game 2017 World Series suspension on Tuesday, but it sounds like the Astros might place him on the 10-day disabled list and send him out on a minor league rehab assignment so that he can get some tune-up at-bats. The 33-year-old first baseman missed most of spring training after undergoing surgery to remove the hamate bone from his left hand in late February. "No setback. It’s just a tedious process to make sure that he’s capable of handling major league pitching and the workload that comes with it," said Hinch.
Apr 2 - 5:22 PM

Yuli Gurriel (hand) will likely return to the Astros' lineup on Tuesday against the Orioles.

Gurriel is recovering from surgery to remove the hamate bone in his left hand, but wasn't placed on the disabled list to begin the season. He is, however, serving a five-game suspension for an insensitive gesture toward Yu Darvish in last year's World Series.
Mar 31 - 5:23 PM

Astros placed 1B Yuli Gurriel on the restricted list.

Gurriel is recovering from February surgery to remove the hamate bone in his left hand, but the Astros opted not to place him on the disabled list so he could presumably make his regular-season debut next Tuesday. He first has to serve a five-game suspension for an insensitive gesture toward Yu Darvish in last year's World Series.
Mar 29 - 12:25 PM

Yuli Gurriel (hand) will stay in Florida this week and continue his rehabilitation.

Guriel began fielding grounders and working on the field last week, and also was able to get some swings in. It currently looks as if he'll be back with the Astros at some point in the middle of April. Once cleared to return, he'll serve a five-game suspension for his insensitive gesture towards Yu Darvish in the 2017 World Series.
Mar 25 - 10:38 AM

Yuli Gurriel (hand) fielded grounders, ran the bases, and did some light hitting Tuesday in Astros camp.

Gurriel underwent surgery in late February to remove the hook of the hamate bone in his left hand. The original timetable called for him to be sidelined for 5-6 weeks, and it appears that will turn out to be fairly accurate. He could be ready to rock around the second or third week of the regular season as long as there are no setbacks. Gurriel still has to serve a five-game suspension for his insensitive gesture toward Yu Darvish in last year's World Series.
Mar 21 - 11:02 AM

Yuli Gurriel (hand) returned to Astros' camp Monday and went through a light workout.

Gurriel required surgery last Wednesday to remove the hook of the hamate bone in his left hand. He's due to miss 5-6 weeks and will also serve a five-game suspension for his insensitive gesture to Yu Darvish during the World Series, so a return in mid-to-late April is likely.
