NEWS UPDATE

Gurriel (hand) will likely return to action when first eligible Tuesday, Jake Kaplan of The Athletic Houston reports. "All signs are pointing in a great direction for him," manager A.J. Hinch said.

ROTOWIRE FANTASY ANALYSIS

Gurriel remains ahead of schedule in his return from February hand surgery. The 33-year-old was able to avoid a stint on the disabled list to open the season, and he could be cleared to make his season debut Tuesday -- which is the first day he's eligible to return from his five-game suspension -- if everything goes well in a set of minor-league games he's scheduled to appear in over the next few days. Once active, Gurriel will serve as the team's primary first baseman.
