News: Hoes is not in the starting lineup Thursday against the Royals. Impact: Hoes, who Astros' manager Bo Porter said would get a long look in left field, had a rough day at the plate Wednesday, going 0-for-5 with three strikeouts. He'll take a seat in favor of Alex Presley, who will bat eighth and man left field against Royals' starter James Shields.(RotoWire, )

News: Astros manager Bo Porter said Wednesday that Hoes will get a long look in left field, Brian McTaggart of MLB.com reports. Impact: Robbie Grossman's demotion has opened up playing time in left field, and it sounds like Hoes will get an audition in an everyday role. The 24-year-old has very little pop, but his speed and ability to hit for decent average make him somewhat interesting in deeper mixed and AL-only formats.(RotoWire, )
