Astros Outfielder Joins Team in New York


Jake Meyers has joined the Houston Astros in New York.

There's a chance Meyers is activated sometime this weekend during the Astros' series against the Mets. 

Meyers was not fantastic during his rehab stint, hitting just .188/.259/.271 in the first 13 games of his minor league rehab assignment. However, in his last game at Triple-A Sugar Land, Meyers went out with a bang going 4-for-4 with a couple of home runs and a walk.

The outfielder has not appeared in a major league game since suffering a torn labrum in his left shoulder in the ALDS last year.

The Astros could use Meyers in center field, as they have had to use multiple players at the position as of late. Jose Siri, Chas McCormick and Mauricio Dubon have all started at least four times this month at center field and although Dubon has performed the best at the position, the Astros need him at shortstop with Pena and Diaz injured at the moment.

Meyers appeared in 49 games for the Astros last season, hitting .260/.323/.438 with six home runs and 28 RBIs.
