Player Outlook
Joey Loperfido looks the part of a big leaguer, standing 6-foot-4, 195 pounds and showcasing above-average power and speed. The 24-year-old can play all over the diamond, seeing double-digit starts at every position except catcher, shortstop and third base. His arm is indeed the weakest part of his defensive game, but his athleticism makes him playable in the outfield and he's got enough arm for second base. He was old for every level he played at last season, so while his .296/.392/.548 slash line with 19 home runs and 20 steals in 84 games at Double-A was impressive, his run at Triple-A (.235/.333/.403 slash, 32.6 K%) was much less so. Loperfido has made a strong impression early in big-league camp, and given that he'll turn 25 in May, he could make his big-league debut this summer if there's an opening and he's performing better at Triple-A.

  • Astros' Joey Loperfido: Dispatched to Triple-A

    The Astros optioned Loperfido to Triple-A Sugar Land after Sunday's 5-2 win over the Athletics, Ari Alexander of KPRC 2 Houston reports. Loperfido will head back to Sugar Land after he produced a .333 average with one home run, five RBI, four runs scored and a stolen base over 39 at-bats in 14 contests with Houston following his April 30 promotion. Veteran first baseman Jose Abreu is set to be called up from Triple-A on Monday, replacing the 25-year-old on the Astros' major-league roster. Considering how well he played in limited action in the big leagues, Loperfido will likely be back with Houston relatively soon.

  • Astros' Joey Loperfido: Opportunities dwindling

    Loperfido is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Angels. With Jake Meyers and Jon Singleton having seemingly settled into full-time roles at center field and first base, respectively, and with left fielder Chas McCormick returning from the injured list Tuesday, Loperfido's time with the big club could soon come to an end now that his avenues to regular at-bats are starting to become more closed off. Loperfido has started just once in the Astros' last five games.

  • Astros' Joey Loperfido: Getting breather Saturday

    Loperfido is not in the starting lineup Saturday versus the Brewers, Brian McTaggart of MLB.com reports. Loperfido will get a breather after he went 2-for-8 with a two-run home run over the last three contests. Mauricio Dubon will replace him in left field and bat ninth against Milwaukee.

  • Astros' Joey Loperfido: Crushes first homer

    Loperfido went 1-for-3 with a two-run home run in Thursday's win over the Athletics while also drawing a walk. Loperfido jumped on a changeup from Joey Estes with two outs in the bottom of the third inning and sent it over the wall in right field for his first big-league home run, capping off a six-run inning for Houston. The rookie outfielder has gotten off to a fantastic start and has now hit safely in five straight games. Over that stretch he's batting .388 (7-for-18) with three RBI and three runs scored.

  • Astros' Joey Loperfido: Heading to bench Monday

    Loperfido is out of the lineup for Monday's game against the Athletics. With a single and a double in Sunday's 9-3 win over the Tigers, Loperfido propped his on-base percentage up to .367 for the season, but the rookie still has yet to take full control of an everyday spot in the lineup. He'll hit the bench for the second time in four games while catcher Yainer Diaz gets a day off behind the plate and serves as Houston's designated hitter. Meanwhile, Yordan Alvarez will pick up a start in left field, where Loperfido has seen most of his big-league action thus far.

  • Astros' Joey Loperfido: Sitting versus left-hander

    Loperfido is not in the lineup for Thursday's game versus the Guardians. He started each of the first two games following his promotion against right-handers, but with southpaw Logan Allen starting Thursday, the left-handed hitting Loperfido will take a seat. The Astros are going with Mauricio Dubon in left field, Jake Meyers in center field and Jon Singleton at first base.

  • Astros' Joey Loperfido: Two RBI in debut

    Loperfido went 1-for-5 with two RBI and a run scored Tuesday against the Guardians. Loperfido was officially called up Tuesday for his big-league debut and started in left field in place of Chas McCormick (hamstring). Loperfido flew out in his first plate appearance, but he delivered a two-RBI single with the bases loaded in the fourth inning for his first big-league hit. The Astros have been somewhat unclear on their plan to use him in the short term, but there are regular plate appearances available with Jose Abreu away from the team.

  • Astros' Joey Loperfido: Confirmed for call-up

    The Astros confirmed that they will select Loperfido's contract from Triple-A Sugar Land on Tuesday, Chandler Rome of The Athletic reports. Loperfido earned his first promotion to the big leagues by slashing .287/.393/.713 with 13 home runs and five stolen bases in his first 25 games with Sugar Land this season. He also had a 30.3 percent strikeout rate, and contact has often been an issue for the 24-year-old throughout his time in the minors. However, with Jose Abreu performing so poorly at first base, the Astros appear willing to give Loperfido a look at the position even if strikeouts are abundant. Loperfido can also play the outfield, and he could be an option for at-bats there, as well, if the Astros elect to cut the playing time of Mauricio Dubon and/or Jake Meyers.

  • Astros' Joey Loperfido: Making impression in camp

    Loperfido has hit .348 with a .217 ISO across 26 plate appearances in Cactus League action. Loperfido is among the Astros' top prospects and logged 138 plate appearances at Triple-A Sugar Land to close the 2023 season. He struggled at the level, striking out at a 32.6 percent clip while posting a 79 wRC+. On the surface, Loperfido has made a strong case to reach the majors at some point in the upcoming campaign with his performance this spring, though his strong surface stats have also come with a 38.5 percent strikeout rate and a .615 BABIP.

  • Astros' Joey Loperfido: Impressing in Astros' camp

    Astros manager Joe Espada said Saturday that Loperfido's performance so far this spring has "been eye-popping for sure," Brian McTaggart of MLB.com reports. Loperfido drew a walk in both of his plate appearances Saturday versus the Cardinals and scored two runs. He's gone 4-for-9 with three walks in 12 trips to the dish during Grapefruit League play. The 24-year-old is not yet on the 40-man roster and could still be a longshot to make the Opening Day roster, but he's put himself in position to reach the big leagues sooner rather than later. Loperfido slashed .278/.370/.510 with 25 home runs and 27 stolen bases between Double-A Corpus Christi and Triple-A Sugar Land in 2023 while seeing starts at five different positions.

  • Astros' Joey Loperfido: Breaking out at Double-A

    Loperfido is slashing .306/.457/.565 with four home runs and six steals in 18 games since getting promoted to Double-A Corpus Christi. Given that Loperfido just turned 24, his exploits at High-A Asheville didn't carry much weight, but he has been excellent thus far at a more age-appropriate level. He has more walks (18) than strikeouts (15) in 81 plate appearances for the Hooks. Loperfido has started in all three outfield spots as well as at first base and designated hitter, but he has more starts (seven) at second base than any other position.
