Player Outlook
Jake Meyers was the Opening Day center fielder for the Astros last year and totaled 341 plate appearances during the regular season, chipping in 10 home runs and five stolen bases. He was dropped from the roster for the ALCS as the team welcomed veteran Michael Brantley back from injury, but Meyers is expected to get another chance as the primary center fielder for Houston to begin 2024. While he is not a high-OBP player, Meyers did well to trim his strikeout rate down to a more acceptable level last season (25.8 K%). His defense will buy his bat more time, though the clock is ticking for the 27-year-old. Meyers ranked in the 92nd percentile in terms of sprint speed last season, per Statcast, so there may be some hidden upside in the stolen base department. That said, if the bat doesn't improve, Meyers could shift into a reserve role for a team with World Series aspirations.

  • Astros' Jake Meyers: Ends homer drought

    Meyers went 1-for-5 with a three-run home run Friday against the Orioles. Meyers smacked his seventh home run of the season in the fifth inning, ending a 23-game drought without a long ball. He's hit only .195 in that span with seven RBI and seven runs scored, though he has still managed to chip in four steals.

  • Astros' Jake Meyers: Snaps hitless streak

    Meyers went 2-for-4 with two doubles and two runs scored Wednesday against the White Sox. Meyers entered Wednesday having failed to record a hit in his last five appearances, during which he was striking out at a 35.7 percent clip. Even with his performance Wednesday, he's still hitting only .167 across 54 at-bats in June. Despite the slow stretch, Meyers has started all but two of 16 games for Houston in June.

  • Astros' Jake Meyers: Sitting out Sunday

    Meyers is not in the lineup for Sunday's game against the Tigers. Meyers is hitless so far in the series, though he flashed the leather Friday with an incredible catch to rob Riley Greene of a homer. That defense will keep him in the lineup most days and afford him time to build on his nice start at the dish (.254/.315/.414). Meyers has already set a new career high with six steals and is on pace for a new career high in home runs.

  • Astros' Jake Meyers: Takes seat Wednesday

    Meyers is out of the lineup for Wednesday's contest in San Francisco, Matt Kawahara of the Houston Chronicle reports. Meyers started in both of the first two games of the series, going 2-for-8 with five strikeouts. He'll begin the series finale on the bench, giving way to Mauricio Dubon in center field.

  • Astros' Jake Meyers: Swipes bag Sunday

    Meyers went 2-for-5 with a stolen base in Sunday's loss to the Angels. Meyers notched his first base hit of the afternoon to lead off the fourth and would steal second before the inning ended. It was his fifth theft of the year and his third since May 29. He also roped a double in the seventh, which was his first extra-base hit since he homered May 24. Overall, the 28-year-old is slashing .263/.328/.431 with six homers, 25 RBI, 18 runs and a 13:37 BB:K in 184 plate appearances.

  • Astros' Jake Meyers: Late addition to lineup

    Meyers has been added to the lineup and will start in center field and bat cleanup Wednesday against the Cardinals. Meyers had been scheduled to receive the day off, but with Alex Bregman (hand) scratched from the lineup, the Astros had an opening. With Meyers filling his usual spot in center field, Mauricio Dubon will shift from center to cover third base for Bregman.

  • Astros' Jake Meyers: Swipes fourth bag

    Meyers went 0-for-3 with a walk and a stolen base Sunday against the Twins. Meyers started his 17th consecutive game in center field and hit fifth Sunday -- matching his highest spot in the order of the season. He's gone 19-for-61 in that span, also tallying three homers, eight runs scored 10 RBI and two stolen bases. Meyers is on the field primarily due to his defensive play, though he's benefitted at the plate from cutting his strikeout rate to 18.7 percent in 155 plate appearances.

  • Astros' Jake Meyers: Caps rally with homer

    Meyers went 1-for-4 with a three-run home run in Friday's 6-3 win over the Athletics. The Astros only scored in the fourth inning Friday, with Meyers providing half of their runs with his homer. The outfielder has three long balls over his last eight games, batting .448 (13-for-29) with nine RBI in that span. On the year, he has a strong .300/.369/.545 slash line with six long balls, 21 RBI, 14 runs scored and two stolen bases through 123 plate appearances. Meyers had some trouble sticking in the lineup early on, but he's operated as a near-everyday option in center field since May 7. As long as he keeps hitting well, he's got a starting job, even with Chas McCormick back in the mix.

  • Astros' Jake Meyers: Collects three hits in loss

    Meyers went 3-for-4 with a solo home run and an additional run scored in Saturday's loss to the Brewers. Meyers was the only Astro with multiple hits in the contest, and his fifth-inning solo homer plated one of the team's two runs. The outfielder has gone deep in back-to-back games and has gone 6-for-10 with four RBI over his past three contests. Meyers hit a career-high 10 long balls last season and is already halfway to that mark with five homers through 102 plate appearances this year.

  • Astros' Jake Meyers: Three hits, three RBI in win

    Meyers went 3-for-3 with three RBI in Sunday's 9-3 win over the Tigers. Meyers entered the game as a pinch hitter for Trey Cabbage in the top of the seventh inning, notching an RBI single. He proceeded to add two more RBI base knocks in the eighth and ninth frames, making the most of his three at-bats in the contest. The outfielder is now batting .360 with two triples, a double, four RBI, two runs scored and a stolen base over 25 at-bats in May.

  • Astros' Jake Meyers: Sitting in third straight

    Meyers is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Rockies in Mexico City, Matt Kawahara of the Houston Chronicle reports. Meyers will take a seat for the third game in a row, with two absences coming against right-handed pitching and one coming versus a lefty. Mauricio Dubon has been swinging a hotter bat of late and will get another start at Meyers' expense, though it's unclear if Dubon has permanently leapfrogged Meyers on the depth chart in center field.

  • Astros' Jake Meyers: Hits bench Thursday

    Meyers is out of the lineup for Thursday's game against the Cubs. Meyers had started in each of the Astros' last three games, going 1-for-8 with a solo home run. He'll get a break for Thursday's series finale in Chicago while Mauricio Dubon picks up a start in center field.

  • Astros' Jake Meyers: Losing work to Dubon

    Meyers isn't in the Astros' lineup for Saturday's game against the Nationals, Matt Kawahara of the Houston Chronicle reports. Meyers will sit down for the third consecutive game Saturday in favor of Mauricio Dubon, who is batting .319 on the year and has posted a 1.158 OPS across his last five games. Given Meyers' declining production at the plate, he may end up dropping down the depth chart if Dubon is able to continue his hot streak.

  • Astros' Jake Meyers: Sits again Friday

    Meyers is out of the lineup for Friday's game at Washington. It's the second straight game on the bench for Meyers, who has a .584 OPS over his past 11 contests. Mauricio Dubon is starting in center field Friday and could carve out a larger share of playing time if he can continue his hot stretch at the plate.

  • Astros' Jake Meyers: Out of Monday's lineup

    Meyers is not in the lineup for Monday's game at Texas, Brian McTaggart of MLB.com reports. Meyers started the previous three games and will head to the bench after going 2-for-8 with a home run, two RBI and two runs during that stretch. Yordan Alvarez will move to the outfield while Jose Altuve rests his legs as the designated hitter.

  • Astros' Jake Meyers: On bench Wednesday

    Meyers is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Blue Jays, Matt Kawahara of the Houston Chronicle reports. Despite having now been out of the lineup for two straight days and three times through the Astros' first seven games, Meyers still looks to be the team's preferred option in center field. Manager Joe Espada may just want to ensure that backup center fielder/utility man Mauricio Dubon stays fresh after having logged just six plate appearances so far this season.

  • Astros' Jake Meyers: Won't start Saturday

    Meyers is not in the lineup for Saturday's game against the Yankees. Meyers started in the first two games of the season, going 1-for-5 with a solo home run and a walk. Mauricio Dubon will get the start in center field Saturday and bat eighth against Yankees right-hander Marcus Stroman.

  • Astros' Jake Meyers: Set to play in exhibition

    Meyers (hand) will start in center field and bat ninth Monday in an exhibition game against Astros minor-leaguers. Meyers suffered an injury scare Saturday when he was forced out of a Grapefruit League game against the Mets after being struck on the left hand by a pitch, but X-rays came back negative. After taking Sunday off to let the soreness in his hand subside, Meyers is back in action. Assuming the hand issue doesn't present too much discomfort Monday while he swings the bat and plays the field, Meyers should be locked into a spot on the Astros' Opening Day roster as the team's primary center fielder.
