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. May 23 - 11:39 PM

Jake Marisnick ripped a pair of two-run homers on Tuesday in Miami.

Both were bombs that clanked off of the home run sculpture at Marlins Park. It's the first multi-homer game in the career of Marisnick, who also added a double and scored three runs on the night. It should go without saying that these kinds of nights will be few and far between for the 26-year-old.

Astros activated OF Jake Marisnick from the 7-day concussion disabled list.

Marisnick came down with post-concussion symptoms after colliding into the outfield wall on April 23, but he didn't have any issue during a brief minor league rehab assignment. The 26-year-old returns to a .286/.400/.571 batting line over 17 games.

Apr 30 - 12:45 PM

Astros placed OF Jake Marisnick on the 7-day concussion disabled list.

Marisnick took early batting practice and ran in the outfield ahead of Tuesday night's game against the Indians, but he apparently exhibited some post-concussion symptoms. He slammed hard into the outfield wall after making a catch on Sunday against the Rays.

Jake Marisnick (head) took early batting practice and ran in the outfield on Tuesday.

Brian McTaggart of MLB.com notes that Astros manager A.J. Hinch watched during Marisnick's batting practice session. The outfielder left Sunday's game with concussion-like symptoms and could still be a possibility for the disabled list.
Apr 25 - 2:02 PM

Astros manager A.J. Hinch said during an appearance on MLB Network Radio on SiriusXM that Jake Marisnick is going through concussion protocol.

Marisnick left Sunday's game with concussion symptoms after colliding into the outfield wall while making a catch. According to Jake Kaplan of the Houston Chronicle, Teoscar Hernandez would be added to the active roster if Marisnick is headed to the DL.

Jake Marisnick was lifted from Sunday's game versus the Rays after experiencing concussion symptoms.

Marisnick slammed hard into the outfield wall after making a catch. He initially stayed in but apparently wasn't feeling quite right. The Astros are calling his removal precautionary, but certainly when concussion symptoms are involved there's a possibility that he'll be out a while.
Apr 23 - 2:51 PM

Getting a rare start against a right-handed pitcher, Jake Marisnick hit his second homer Thursday against the Angels.

Marisnick has mostly been a defensive replacement thus far, but he's done well with his limited opportunities, going 5-for-16 with two homers and four walks. We don't expect him to keep it up, but he could get starts over Nori Aoki until he cools off.
Apr 20 - 6:02 PM

Jake Marisnick went 3-for-3 and homered Friday versus the Mets.

Marisnick was a big disappointment last year, hitting just .209/.257/.331 in 287 at-bats. The Astros are expected to carry him again this year anyway, and he'll probably play right field over Josh Reddick versus certain left-handers.
Mar 3 - 5:51 PM

Astros and OF Jake Marisnick avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $1.1 million contract.

It's Marisnick's first year of arbitration eligibility. He hit an ugly .209/.257/.331 for the Astros last season and will enter 2017 in a reserve role.
Jan 13 - 11:11 AM

Jake Marisnick went 0-for-3 with two strikeouts Friday in the loss to the Angels.

The Astros were hoping Marisnick would step it up when they let Carlos Gomez go, but he's been miserable offensively while continuing to play very good defense in center field. Not only is he batting just .204, but he has a hideous 81/16 K/BB ratio in 280 at-bats. The Astros won't be penciling him in as a 2017 regular.

Jake Marisnick is still dealing with some soreness in his right groin.

Marisnick return to action Tuesday after missing a few days of action, but he's not 100 percent yet. Astros manager A.J. Hinch plans to play Marisnick every other day for a while. He's not in Friday's lineup.

Jake Marisnick (groin) remains out of the Astros starting lineup on Saturday.

Marisnick tweaked his right groin during the first game of Thursday's doubleheader and hasn't played since. Teoscar Hernandez is once again starting in his place in center field and batting eighth for the Astros on Saturday. Marisnick remains day-to-day.
