Player Outlook
Chas McCormick set a new personal high with 457 plate appearances. He could have topped 500, but McCormick was sidelined for about a month early on with a back strain. His underlying metrics didn't change from 2022, but a deeper look reveals McCormick's fly ball average exit velocity increased 1.5 mph, manifesting more power, along with a higher BABIP. Not only did McCormick exhibit more power, but he also took advantage of the new rules with 19 steals in 25 attempts. In his first 727 plate appearances, McCormick swiped only eight bags in 13 tries. After being a bit below average with the glove the prior season, McCormick rebounded with an above average defensive campaign. The only yellow flag in McCormick's numbers is he has outperformed his expected batting average throughout his career. This could be due to Minute Maid Park, it could be something he does that isn't captured, but it can also be good fortune, so factor in some batting average regression. Even so, McCormick was one pilfer from a 20/20 campaign, and he has a great chance of joining the club this year.

  • Astros' Chas McCormick: Hitting bench Wednesday

    McCormick is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Angels. McCormick returned from the 10-day injured list Tuesday and started in left field in the Astros' 6-5 victory over the Angels, going 0-for-3 with a strikeout. The Astros haven't indicated that McCormick suffered a setback with his hamstring in his return to the lineup Tuesday, so his absence Wednesday is likely just for maintenance purposes. Mauricio Dubon will get the nod in left field in the series finale.

  • Astros' Chas McCormick: Hits ninth in return

  • Astros' Chas McCormick: Activated Tuesday

    McCormick (hamstring) was reinstated from the 10-day injured list Tuesday, Chandler Rome of The Athletic reports. McCormick has missed all of May with hamstring soreness, but he'll return to the active roster after a six-game rehab stint. The 29-year-old went 5-for-23 with a pair of doubles and a stolen base in the minors. While McCormick should end up as the Astros' starting left fielder, he's likely to split time with Joey Loperfido and could see more DH work considering the fragility of a hamstring injury.

  • Astros' Chas McCormick: Won't be activated Monday

    Astros manager Joe Espada said that McCormick (hamstring) will not be activated from the 10-day injured list prior to Monday's game versus the Angels, Chandler Rome of The Athletic reports. However, McCormick is with the Astros at Minute Maid Park and will go through a pregame workout. His activation will come "soon," per Espada, with Tuesday seeming like a distinct possibility.

  • Astros' Chas McCormick: Rehab stint on tap

    Manager Joe Espada said Wednesday that McCormick (hamstring) could begin a rehab assignment this weekend, Matt Kawahara of the Houston Chronicle reports. The 29-year-old landed on the injured list with hamstring soreness last week, and he is now on the cusp of returning to game action. McCormick will likely only need a few games in the minors to get back up to speed due to the brevity of the absence, though he could use a few extra at-bats given his .603 OPS through 21 games.

  • Astros' Chas McCormick: Ends up on injured list

    The Astros placed McCormick on the 10-day injured list Wednesday due to right hamstring discomfort, retroactive to Sunday, Brian McTaggart of MLB.com reports. Manager Joe Espada said Wednesday that the Astros were debating placing McCormick on the injured list, and the team ultimately decided sitting him down for another week is the best course of action. The 29-year-old outfielder likely won't require more than a minimum stay on the IL, so he may be able to return to the lineup when eligible May 8. Jacob Amaya was recalled from Triple-A Sugar Land in a corresponding move.

Though McCormick won't start Wednesday, he'll be available to hit, per Brian McTaggart of MLB.com, despite still having issues with his hamstring. Joey Loperfido will get the nod in left field and bat eighth in McCormick's stead.

  • Astros' Chas McCormick: Nursing sore hamstring

    Astros manager Joe Espada said Tuesday that McCormick is dealing with some hamstring soreness, Chandler Rome of The Athletic reports. Houston has yet to post its lineup for Tuesday's matchup with Cleveland, but the 29-year-old outfielder doesn't seem likely to be included. Prospect Joey Loperfido is being called up for his first taste of the big leagues, and he'll see some run in the outfield with McCormick banged up, per Espada. McCormick's injury doesn't appear to be a serious concern, but he may be limited over the next few days.

  • Astros' Chas McCormick: Checks out of starting nine

    McCormick is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Rockies in Mexico City, Matt Kawahara of the Houston Chronicle reports.

  • Astros' Chas McCormick: Retreats to bench

    McCormick is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against Atlanta, Matt Kawahara of the Houston Chronicle reports. McCormick recently overcame a hamstring issue before starting in each of Houston's last three games, so his absence from the lineup Wednesday is most likely for maintenance purposes as the Astros and Atlanta close their series with an afternoon contest. With McCormick on the bench, the Astros will run out an outfield of Yordan Alvarez, Mauricio Dubon and Kyle Tucker from left to right.

The 28-year-old sat out the first two games of the series due to hamstring soreness but will return to action Sunday for the finale. McCormick had a hot first week of the season with an .845 OPS through six games, but he's gone just 2-for-20 with four walks and five strikeouts over his past six contests.
