Sun Sep 1912:36Yuli Gurriel On The Bench For Sunday's Game
Houston Astros first baseman Yuli Gurriel will not start Sunday's matchup with the Arizona Diamondbacks. Aledmys Diaz will get the nod at first base, batting second in the lineup. Gurriel has been very hot at the plate lately, slashing .375/.375/.438 with five multi-hit games in his last seven starts. Gurriel last homered on September 5, and while he has a very safe fantasy profile in terms of batting average, he lacks the top-end contributions with power or speed. Fantasy managers can expect him back in the lineup Monday against the Los Angeles Angels.
