Jake Marisnick (groin) is back in the Astros' starting lineup on Tuesday night against the Cardinals.

Marisnick tweaked his groin last Thursday and hadn't appeared in a game since. He will start in center field and bat ninth Tuesday versus lefty Jaime Garcia.

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.
Aug 13 - 10:20 AM

Jake Marisnick is not playing Friday after tweaking his right groin in the first game of Thursday's doubleheader versus the Twins.

It's considered a day-to-day injury. Teoscar Hernandez is in center field Friday.
Aug 12 - 5:12 PM

Jake Marisnick had a nice night at the dish in Friday's loss to the Tigers, going 2-for-4 with a homer and two runs scored.

Marisnick's solo shot came off of Tigers starter Matt Boyd in the third inning, but the game was already out of hand at that point as the Tigers led 9-3. He also flashed his defensive prowess in this one, making a terrific running catch just before crashing into the center field wall. With the two-hit attack, Marisnick is now hitting .221/.269/.329 with a pair of long balls and nine RBI.

Astros recalled OF Jake Marisnick from Triple-A Fresno.

Marisnick saw 10 at-bats in April, but the Astros optioned him to Triple-A at the end of the month after he managed just one hit (and six strikeouts) in his limited action. Still just 25, Marisnick slashed .236/.281/.383 with nine homers, 36 RBI, and 24 steals across 339 at-bats last season at the major league level. He won't see regular playing time, but if he can carve out a niche for himself, he at least makes for a speed option off the bench for fantasy owners in chasm-deep AL-only leagues.

Astros optioned OF Jake Marisnick to Triple-A Fresno.

Marisnick was off to a dreadful 1-for-10 start this year in Houston, with six strikeouts and one walk in 12 games. He's better off getting regular playing time on the farm as he tries to work his way out of this early-season slump. Marisnick, 25, is buried on the Astros' talented outfield depth chart.

Jake Marisnick (ankle) is expected to play a couple innings on Thursday.

Marisnick suffered a mild right ankle sprain in Monday's Cactus League game against the Braves and took a day of rest on Tuesday before going through a full workout Wednesday in Astros camp. He should be fine for the start of the 2016 regular season and makes for a solid real-life reserve outfielder on what should be a very good Houston team.
Mar 30 - 4:28 PM

Jake Marisnick was diagnosed with a mild right ankle sprain.

The injury forced him to exit Monday's Cactus League game against the Braves. It's probably safe to call him day-to-day for now.
Mar 28 - 9:42 PM

Jake Marisnick exited Monday's Cactus League game against the Braves with an apparent injury.

The exact issue isn't yet known. Marisnick wanted to stay in the game, so it doesn't sound too serious, but the Astros should provide an update either after the game or on Tuesday.
Mar 28 - 9:25 PM

Jake Marisnick went 0-for-4 and struck out twice against the Nationals on Monday.

Marisnick's plus defense made him a solid enough contributor to the Astros last season, even if his .236/.381/.383 line was disappointing. The plan was to use him as a fourth outfielder this season, but with all three starting outfielders capable of playing center, it's not like the Astros have to keep Marisnick around for his defense. He'll need to hit better over the rest of the spring to keep his hold on that spot. Right now, he's 4-for-23 with one extra-base hit and one walk.
Mar 14 - 4:29 PM

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.

Jake Marisnick will start in center field and bat ninth in Game 1 of the ALDS Thursday against the Royals.

The full starting lineup for Houston: Jose Altuve 2B, George Springer RF, Carlos Carrea SS, Colby Rasmus LF, Evan Gattis DH, Luis Valbuena 3B, Chris Carter 1B, Jason Castro C, Jake Marisnick CF. Collin McHugh will pitch for the Astros while Yordano Ventura toes the rubber for the Royals.

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.
