COLBY RASMUS RUMORS & GOSSIP

Deep League Waiver Additions

  Hitters Colby Rasmus – Houston Astros – OF Colby Rasmus has been hot and cold this season, much like every hitter that’s available on the waiver wire in fantasy baseball, but has been hitting well recently for the Astros. He hit his 10th home run of the season on Father’s Day, and added another two hit day Tuesday as well. Rasmus will provide solid numbers when he is...

Colby Rasmus, the Astros, and Strikeouts

I don’t think one should require much convincing that the Houston Astros are taking a worthwhile shot in signing Colby Rasmus. Most simply, it’s a one-year contract for a 28-year-old, and it’s worth just $8 million. Rasmus has had a volatile career — last year he finished with a .287 OBP — but he was […]

Let’s talk about Colby Rasmus

For some inexplicable reason, I’ve always been a Colby Rasmus fan. Actually, I can explain it – Tony La Russa hates Colby Rasmus, so I must love him. Traded for pennies on the dollar to Toronto, Rasmus (the former #3 prospect in baseball) has had a very up-and-down career so far. He’s now a free agent, and one the Cubs will no doubt look into. Offense Rasmus has put up some...

Player Profile #186: Colby Rasmus | OF | TOR

Just because Colby Rasmus hasn’t lived up to the potential he showed in his minor league career or his breakout 2010 season with the Cardinals doesn’t mean that he’s someone to ignore. After all, the 27-year-old outfielder has hit 22 or 23 HR in three of the last 4 years while posting a .225 ISO last year. But unfortunately Rasmus has become another one of those good power...

2013 fluke or future - Colby Rasmus

Would you believe me if I told you that Colby Rasmus' slugging percentage was only seven points lower than McCutchen in 2013? Would you believe me if I told you that he had a more valuable season than Adam Jones? How about if I told you that he had a better defensive season than Span, Ellsbury, Blanco and McCutchen? I would not blame you if you would not have believed any of those...
