Astros general manager Jeff Luhnow indicated Tuesday that Jake Marisnick is the favorite to start in left field.
"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)." Marisnick batted .272/.299/.370 with three homers over 51 games for the Astros after coming over in a trade from the Marlins. He has an ugly 94/14 K/BB ratio in his career and had similar issues in the minors, so it's hard to think Marisnick will hit for average. He does have an intriguing blend of power and speed, which could make him interesting if he can make enough contact. Jan 20 - 11:55 PM

Jake Marisnick went 2-for-5 with a home run and three RBI as the Astros downed the Mariners 8-3 on Sunday.

With a one-run lead in the seventh inning, Marisnick blew the game wide open with a three-run shot off Mariners reliever Yoervis Medina. The homer was Marisnick's third of the year and his second in the past two games. He also scored the first run of the game on a wild pitch. The multi-faceted outfielder is hitting .276 since moving to the American League and is slashing .250/.285/.325 with 11 steals and three homers overall.

Jake Marisnick went 2-for-4 with a walk, a stolen base, and an RBI single, accounting for the Astros' only run in Thursday's 13-inning loss to the Indians.

Marisnick put the Astros on the board with his fourth-inning RBI single, but it was all his club would muster on the offensive side. The 23-year-old has plenty of potential, but he has struggled since joining the Astros, hitting just .266/.300/.324 in 152 plate appearances.

Jake Marisnick went 3-for-4 with an RBI and a stolen base against the Angels Sunday.

Marisnick had three singles on the afternoon, coming through with an RBI single in the sixth inning. The stolen base was his ninth of the season in 11 attempts. Marisnick is hitting .264 since joining the Astros and is batting .237/.274/.282 overall this year.

Jake Marisnick went 0-for-3 and committed an error in right field Friday against the A's.

Marisnick is still hitting .252 for the Astros, but that comes with a 23/2 K/BB ratio and just five extra-base hits (one homer, four doubles) in 107 at-bats, making him a pretty lousy player thus far. The Astros will stick with him this month, but if he doesn't show some real improvement, they shouldn't pencil him in as a 2015 regular.

Jake Marisnick went 0-for-5 at the plate in his return to the lineup Tuesday.

Marisnick wasn't in Sunday's lineup in part because he's dealing with some soreness in his lower back. He's cooled off of late after a hot start with the Astros.

Jake Marisnick is dealing with some soreness in his lower back.

He's not in Sunday's lineup, though Astros manager Bo Porter insists the back ailment isn't the reason why. Marisnick is hitting .293/.311/.397 with one homer and five RBI over 15 games with Houston.

Jake Marisnick delivered a 10th inning go-ahead, two-run double in a 5-3 win over the Red Sox.

Marisnick dropped a bloop just inside the right-field line which bounced into the stands for ground-rule double. The 23-year-old finished the evening 2-for-5 and is now hitting .315 (17-for-54) since coming over from the Marlins in the Jarred Cosart deal. His plate discipline is a work in progress, but he has speed to burn and is worth monitoring in deeper formats.

Jake Marisnick went 2-for-4 with a home run and two runs scored in Tuesday's win over the Twins.

Marisnick hit a solo shot in the third inning off Twins starter Yohan Pino, his first home run of the season. The outfielder has taken well to the American League since being dealt to the Astros, batting .333/.341/.452 in 11 games. Marisnick has an intriguing combination of power and speed that makes him a decent option in AL-only leagues for the rest of the season.
Tue, Aug 12, 2014 11:47:00 PM

Jake Marisnick had four singles in four at-bats Monday against the Twins.

Unfortunately, since he was batting eighth in the Astros lineup, those hits added up to no runs scored and no RBI. He's hit .316 in 10 games since joining the Astros, but that's come with no homers, no steals, two runs scored and two RBI.

Astros acquired OF Jake Marisnick, 3B Colin Moran, RHP Frances Martes and a 2015 compensation pick from the Marlins in exchange for RHP Jarred Cosart, INF Enrique Hernandez and OF Austin Wates.

Marisnick had been at Triple-A but will report to the Astros' big league club. The 23-year-old has hit just .178/.226/.223 over his first 54 big league games, but he has power and speed upside and should be a fixture in the Astros' outfield for years.
Thu, Jul 31, 2014 04:56:00 PM

Marlins optioned OF Jake Marisnick to Triple-A New Orleans.

Marisnick is batting just .167/.216/.167 across 51 plate appearances this season. He'll be back in September, if not before.
Tue, Jul 29, 2014 10:34:00 PM

Mariners recalled OF Jake Marisnick from Triple-A New Orleans.

Marisnick is just 8-for-47 (.170) this season at the major league level. The 23-year-old outfielder has posted promising speed and power numbers in the minors, but he is doubtful to hold fantasy relevance in 2014.
Mon, Jul 28, 2014 02:45:00 PM

Marlins optioned OF Jake Marisnick to Triple-A New Orleans.

Marisnick had a low .159 batting average in 44 at-bats with the Marlins in June. The 23-year-old shouldn't be considered as a viable fantasy option this season.

Marlins recalled OF Jake Marisnick from Triple-A New Orleans.

Marisnick hit only .159 with three runs scored in 44 plate appearances with the Marlins last month. He's getting another shot but doesn't have a clear path to playing time this time around. Stay away from him in all but the deepest of fantasy leagues.
