Jake Marisnick was diagnosed with a fractured right thumb and is expected to miss 6-8 weeks after surgery Friday.
That's quite a bummer for Marisnick and the Astros; he would have at least played center against lefties in the postseason and maybe gotten some time against righties too. Marisnick, who was hitting .243/.319/.496 in 259 at-bats, was hurt sliding into second base last night. The Astros will now have to give more time to Derek Fisher and Cameron Maybin as they try to figure out a new postseason outfield alignment. Sep 14 - 6:04 PM

Jake Marisnick flew back to Houston late Wednesday night to have his injured right thumb examined by team doctors.

Marisnick jammed the thumb while sliding into second base on an attempted double in the third inning of Wednesday's game at Anaheim. "We'll know more in the next couple of days, but it doesn't look good," manager A.J. Hinch said after the 9-1 loss. "He slid into the bag and beat up his thumb pretty well. So we're going to send him back to Houston, but it doesn't look good." Derek Fisher entered to play left field with Cameron Maybin shifting to center.

Jake Marisnick was removed from Wednesday's game with an apparent injury to his hand.

The injury took place when Marisnick was sliding into second base in the top of the third. Derek Fisher took Marisnick's place. We should have more information on the severity of the injury after the game.

Jake Marisnick was ejected from Sunday's game for arguing balls and strikes.

Marisnick voiced his displeasure after taking a questionable called-third strike to end the fifth inning. Home plate umpire Ramon De Jesus had heard enough and gave Marisnick the heave-ho. Cameron Maybin took over in center field for the Astros.

Jake Marisnick (groin) scored as a pinch-runner in the Astros' defeat of the Mariners on Wednesday.

Marisnick entered the game for Carlos Beltran after Beltran led off the top of the ninth inning with a double. He then trotted home on Cameron Maybin's go-ahead two-run blast to right field. Marisnick had been sidelined for several days with a groin injury.
Sep 7 - 8:51 AM

Jake Marisnick is dealing with a groin injury.

The hope is that he'll be available to play early this week in Seattle. Marisnick is hitting .246/.323/.504 with 16 homers this season.

Jake Marisnick homered, doubled and scored twice versus the Angels on Saturday.

Marisnick was making his first start in three days, but he's now gone 6-for-12 with two homers and two doubles the last three times he's been in the lineup. It'll be bad news for Derek Fisher if Marisnick starts getting more time against righties.

Jake Marisnick homered twice, doubled and knocked in five runs as the Astros beat the Rays 14-7 on Monday.

A quiet five-week stretch had resulted in fewer at-bats for Marisnick lately -- the start tonight was just his second in seven games -- but he helped the cause tonight. It ended up being his second career two-homer game and first game with either four runs scored or five RBI. In spite of his recent struggles, Marisnick has an .882 OPS for the year. We doubt he'd match that in an expanded role, but he's been a significant asset for the AL's best team.

Jake Marisnick homered and doubled Monday in a losing cause versus the Mariners.

Marisnick had a slow month leading up to the All-Star break and didn't start the first two games back, but he's 3-for-6 with a walk and a steal the last two days. While he's mostly started against lefties -- and he had a good game against one in Ariel Miranda tonight -- he's actually been far more productive versus righties this year. Right now, though, it's not leading to extra at-bats.

Jake Marisnick clocked a three-run homer Thursday in the Astros’ 12-9 win over the Athletics.

He wasn’t in the Astros’ lineup but subbed in for George Springer, who left after getting hit by a pitch in his first at-bat. Marisnick promptly clubbed a homer off Jesse Hahn as the Astros exploded for eight runs in the second inning. That gives Marisnick a career-high 10 homers including four in the month of June. He could play regularly in center field if Springer misses extended time.

Jake Marisnick drove in two of Houston’s five runs Wednesday in a win over the A’s.

Marisnick staked the Astros to a 3-0 lead in the sixth by ripping an RBI single off left-hander Sean Manaea. He also plated a run on an eighth-inning sac fly. Marisnick carries minimal fantasy weight despite homering in three of his last six games.
Jun 22 - 1:25 AM

Jake Marisnick smacked a two-run home run in Monday's 4-1 victory against the Athletics.

It was Marisnick's second straight game with a homer, and third time in four games he has left the yard. He has homered in back-to-back games twice this season, and he had a two-homer game May 16 in Miami against his former organization.
Jun 20 - 2:10 AM

Jake Marisnick picked up a pinch-hit two-run single in the ninth inning of Thursday's win over the Royals.

Marisnick capped off a five-run ninth by the Astros when he pinch hit for Nori Aoki and came through with a two-run single. Overall, the 26-year-old outfielder is slashing .259/.341/.506 with six homers and 13 RBI over the course of 81 at-bats.
Jun 8 - 11:06 PM

Jake Marisnick slugged a solo home run Friday against the Orioles.

Marisnick went deep in the third inning before Carlos Beltran added some insurance with a solo blast of his own in the sixth. The 26-year-old has been very productive in a small sample this season, batting .290/.362/.597 with six home runs and four steals through 35 games. He’s a useful player to have around, but it’s worth noting that he has struck out 26 times in 69 plate appearances. We don’t expect this sort of production to last.

Jake Marisnick went 3-for-4 with an RBI single in Tuesday's win over the Tigers.

Marisnick struck out in his first plate appearance, but he picked up singles in his next three trips to the plate, with the final hit scoring the Astros' last run of the night. He now has two three-hit games in his last three starts and is hitting a surprising .296/.377/.537 on the season. It won't last, but Marisnick has probably earned a few more starts while his bat is hot given his plus glove.
