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. Jul 18 - 12:24 AM

Date:

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
May 16 - 10:25 PM

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.
May 1 - 3:52 PM

Jake Marisnick (concussion) is on track for activation on Monday.

Marisnick is slated to play a second rehab game with Double-A Corpus Christi on Sunday. Assuming he gets out of it with no issues, he'll be activated Monday.

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.
