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) 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.

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.

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.

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.
Mon, Mar 28, 2016 09:42:00 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.
Mon, Mar 28, 2016 09:25:00 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.

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.
