  • Cristian Javier Keeps Scoreless Streak Alive

    Headshot for Cristian Javier

    Houston Astros starting pitcher Cristian Javier was superb during Wednesday's 8-0 rout of the Toronto Blue Jays, tossing five innings of one-hit ball with three strikeouts to record his first win of the season. Javier walked five in this one, but the free passes didn't come back to haunt him in this scoreless outing. With the effort, the 27-year-old Dominican right-hander now boasts 11 shutout frames with nine punchouts through his initial two appearances of 2024. Javier gets the Kansas City Royals and ace left-hander Cole Ragans next Tuesday for the start of a three-game series, and a pitching duel could be in store for that one. Despite being winless with a 7.20 ERA in two appearances against the Royals since 2022, Javier will still be a strong fantasy play on the road.

  • Cristian Javier Turns In Rough Start Monday

    Headshot for Cristian Javier

    Houston Astros starting pitcher Cristian Javier yielded his worst start of the spring in Monday's 10-1 Grapefruit League loss to the Nationals. Javier pitched 4 2/3 innings, allowing five runs on three hits (including a solo home run) and four walks with one strikeout. The 26-year-old is coming off of a surprisingly poor 2023 season and now has a 4.30 ERA with a 1.02 WHIP and 14 strikeouts in 14 2/3 IP this spring. He is still a bounce-back fantasy candidate given his career track record, but hopefully, he can turn in a few more positive outings heading into the regular season.

  • Offseason In Review: Houston Astros

    Headshot for Bryan Abreu

    The Astros entered the offseason anticipating a few depth acquisitions. An injury to one of their anticipated setup relievers spurred them in another direction: a bold strike for one of the sport’s best late-game weapons.

  • Cristian Javier Drops 15 Pounds This Offseason

    Headshot for Cristian Javier

    Houston Astros right-hander Cristian Javier has reportedly lost 15 pounds in the offseason as he acknowledged some of his struggles in the 2023 season could be related to some extra weight he was carrying around. A steady force from 2020-2022, the right-hander indeed took a step back in the 2023 season as he put forth a 4.56 ERA across 31 starts, a far cry from the 2.54 ERA he tossed across 30 outings (25 starts) in the 2022 campaign. More so, Javier saw his strikeout rate drop from 33.2% in the 2022 season all the way to 23.1% a season ago. His presence is key for an Astros team that has Lance McCullers Jr. and Luis Garcia sidelined until the second half of the season while his fantasy value is questionable after a significant dip in 2023.
