I've been following him for a few years now and I think he can perform at this level. I'm excited by this news. Solid contact guy. Can provide a bit of pop. Serviceable defense and a good arm.


Purple_Money_9146

Yeah I had wondered when we'd se him. 6'6" seems weird for a utility infielder lol.


manofconviction

I wonder what the corresponding move is... hopefully not Yordan to the IL


mrg_2002

Perhaps Dubon to the IL maybe?


ToyCannon1982

Hopefully it’ll be Matijevic back to Sugar Land. I say hopefully because that means no one is headed to the IL. Nothing against JJ.


successadult

Yordan might play tomorrow so no IL stint for him I think.


Takingbacklives

Diaz has a groin injury.


manofconviction

Diaz is already on the IL


thehammerismypen1s

Matijevic got called up when Diaz went to the IL. This is a separate move.

JJ sent back down


willydillydoo

It sounds like the Yordan thing isn’t really an injury,


bordomsdeadly

Really expected a Goodrum call up. Why hang onto him if we won’t use him in case of injury. This will require a 40 man spot to be made available. Maybe Goodrum being put on waivers? Unless Dubon is out for the season and going on the 60 day


chimp20

Drop Goodrum. Totally worthless.


mfwood8

Not even for his secret rum stash?


Purple_Money_9146

If his name was Badwhiskey, he'd be a bad ass.


Gus_Frin_g

I was thinking the same thing. If Goodrum didn't get called up now, he is almost certainly being waived.


NolanRyanGod

niko played one game for the space cowboys after returning from his rehab assignment and hasnt been in the dugout since


slippytoadstada

because we already know he's ass, this guy could theoretically be better, at least in the short term


willydillydoo

Probably kept Goodrum around not expecting this guy to be as good as he has been


Uberjeagermeiter

So what was the diagnosis for Jordan. Was it food poisoning?


Purple_Money_9146

He left the hospital. Everything checked out normal. He's at the park. Further evaluation.


mrg_2002

Shortness of breathe, not helped by the fireworks Atlanta fired off


cantsay

That's not a diagnosis lol *It's like saying diagnosis is upset tummy! -technicality aside, it's not *the answer* & [I called anxiety](https://old.reddit.com/r/Astros/comments/wsvwum/post_game_thread_aug_19_2022_astros_7744_braves/il0sda7/) as the DIAGNOSIS

Oh, case closed, then. We've solved it.


Packtex60

I don’t think they can send JJ down this soon but that would be the move in my opinion. Release Niko as well.


[deleted]

They sent him down


Packtex60

JJ was sent down to make room for Hensley


Sneaky__Rafiki

Can he play CF?


makashiII_93

This feels like it’s going to matter in the outfield.


JadeWithTheFade

Got to see him play in Sugarland this year and guy is a stud!


HelmOfBrilliance

How tall is David Hensley really? The ump is 6’7 and David standing next to Him looks like a child.


Illustrator_Worried

This is all well and good but on another note. You do realize WTF Dusty is stupidly setting us up for. Maldonado is catching Verlander, LMJ and Framber. Vazquez is catching Garcia, Javier and Urquidy. Two of those pitchers won't be on the post season roster and one of them is also named Javier. So Dusty is laying the groundwork for "Maldonado is the one that caught the three playoff starters" instead of doing his fucking job and rotating Vazquez over the next 6 weeks to catch all 6 pitchers multiple times.


Buckcheeks

Not sure how you figure two of those six players won’t be on the postseason roster. That is unequivocally false.


Illustrator_Worried

Hahahaha if you think the Astros are carrying 6 fucking starters in a best 3 of 5 first round series you should stop commenting about baseball. They will carry 4 starters and Maton will be your bridge guy. Then 8 relievers. Smith Neris Montero Stanek Pressly Abreu recall Martinez and probably await Taylor's return for a second LH reliever.


Buckcheeks

They absolutely will be carrying all 6 guys.


Kasekubrick

You sound ridiculous. Some of you Dusty haters create scenarios in your head that dont make any sense. Dusty doesnt even control the postseason roster, Click does. So if he chooses to leave off Javier, he should be fired.


Illustrator_Worried

Hey Dumbass Javier won't be left off. It will be Garcia and Urquidy in the first series. JFC. And yes a fucking manager does have control of the post season roster along with the GM. Click isn't keeping anyone on there Dusty says he ain't using. And you can suck Dusty's cock all you want but pay attention to his idiocy in the Atlanta series, the last playoff intense series of the rest of the regular season.


Kasekubrick

You are a 10 year child. Listen to what you just said. You literally said Dusty is setting this up for 2 of those 3 starters to not make the postseason roster and then in another comment, you state that the Astros wont be carrying all 6 starters so 2 of them have to go. Lmfao. You dont even know what you are mad at. Youre just an unhinged Dusty hater. Im glad he makes some of you guys so mad, because youll never be happy. You’ll hate any manager in that dugout. Just an absolute tool with an incurable mental illness.


Illustrator_Worried

Again keep sucking Dustys cock. Guess you missed his amazing handling of the pitching staff late tonight in a playoff type game. Fucking loser. I'll be waiting when we come up short again and waste another years talent with Dustys final swan song!


Kasekubrick

You are a baby.
