The Astros are willing to listen to offers on outfielder Jake Marisnick "in the right deal," per Jerry Crasnick of ESPN.
As they should be. However, with center fielders like Denard Span, Dexter Fowler, and Austin Jackson on the open market, the Astros might not find a huge market for him. The 24-year-old batted .236/.281/.383 with nine home runs, 36 RBI, and 24 steals over 133 games this past season. Tue, Dec 1, 2015 02:27:00 PM

Making his first start in six days, Jake Marisnick went 2-for-3 with a homer, three RBI and a steal Monday against the A's.

Marisnick is supposed to be stuck on the bad side of a platoon with Colby Rasmus now that George Springer is back, but that could change if he keeps this up. He also homered off the bench Sunday and in his previous start last Tuesday. So, he's 5-for-7 with a 1.857 slugging percentage in September.

Jake Marisnick went 2-for-3 with a home run and two runs scored in Tuesday's loss to the Mariners.

Marisnick hit a solo homer in the fourth inning before singling and scoring in the sixth. The home run was his seventh of the year. The toolsy outfielder isn't a meaningful contributor for the Astros, hitting just .239/.269/.375 in a part-time role, but he's got 17 stolen bases to go with his seven homers through 107 games.

Jake Marisnick went 2-for-3 with a two-run homer in Friday's win over the Dodgers.

Marisnick got the Astros on the board early by taking Brett Anderson deep in the bottom of the second inning. It was his sixth home run of the season and his first since way back on June 17. That's a span of 35 games. It was a nice night for Marisnick at the plate and in the field, but he's not playing often enough to warrant attention in most fantasy leagues.

Jake Marisnick went 0-for-3 as the Astros' left fielder Wednesday against the Rangers.

Marisnick was in there against a righty tonight, but with Carlos Gomez in center, his playing time really should be limited to facing left-handers going forward. The problem there is that he's actually hit righties quite a bit better than lefties this year, not that the trend is necessarily likely to continue. His fantasy value is very, very limited at the moment.

CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports that Jake Marisnick "may be used as a chip to land a reliever."

They've been discussing Craig Kimbrel and Joaquin Benoit with the Padres and have also been in on other relievers. With Carlos Gomez now on board, Marsnick is expendable.

Jake Marisnick tripled, stole a base and scored two runs in a win over the Red Sox on Tuesday.

Marisnick made things happen with his legs in the fifth inning, collecting his 12th stolen base of the season and coming around to score when the throw ricocheted off his forearm and into left field. He later tripled and scored on a Jose Altuve single in the eighth. The 24-year-old has come down after a torrid start to the year, but he's still a dual threat who will have some exciting games for the Astros.

Astros activated OF Jake Marisnick from the 15-day disabled list.

He's back in center field and hitting ninth Sunday. Marisnick missed a little over two weeks of action with a left hamstring strain.

Jake Marisnick (hamstring) is scheduled to return from the disabled list on Sunday.

The center fielder played three games on a minor league rehab assignment with Triple-A Fresno, going 2-for-12 with a pair of walks. He'll rejoin the team on Sunday, though there is a chance that they'll wait on his activation until Monday.

Jake Marisnick (hamstring) is scheduled to begin a rehab assignment Wednesday with Triple-A Fresno.

Evan Drellich of the Houston Chronicle suspects that Marisnick will be cleared to rejoin the Astros' active roster next Monday in Cleveland. The 24-year-old outfielder has been on the shelf since June 19 with a strained hamstring. He boasts five homers and 11 stolen bases in 62 games this season.

Jake Marisnick (hamstring) will take swings off a tee on Tuesday.

It will be his first time swinging a bat since he went on the disabled list last week with a left hamstring strain. Obviously running will be the big test for Marisnick and it's uncertain when he'll be cleared to do that.
Tue, Jun 23, 2015 09:35:00 PM

Astros placed OF Jake Marisnick on the 15-day disabled list with a left hamstring strain.

Marisnick was forced to leave Thursday's game after sustaining the injury and wasn't feeling much better on Friday so the team will play it safe and put him on the shelf for a couple of weeks. Domingo Santana should remain with the club in his absence.

Jake Marisnick is considered day-to-day with left hamstring discomfort.

He was forced to leave Thursday's game after sustaining the injury. It doesn't sound as though it will require a trip to the disabled list, so look for the speedy outfielder to return at some point over the weekend.

Jake Marisnick is once again not in the Astros starting lineup on Saturday.

It has become pretty apparent that the struggling Marisnick has been replaced by Preston Tucker as a regular in the Astros lineup. After a blistering start to the season, he's hitting just .159/.194/.190 with 29 strikeouts in 63 at-bats over his last 22 games.
