PHouston Astros
October 11, 2020
The Astros recalled De Jong from their taxi squad Sunday ahead of Game 1 of the team's ALCS matchup with the Rays, Jake Kaplan of The Athletic reports.
ANALYSIS
The Astros decided that having an extra long-relief arm in De Jong on hand for the ALCS was more important than retaining a reserve outfielder in Chas McCormick, who was optioned to the team's taxi squad in a corresponding move. De Jong made three appearances for Houston in the regular season, giving up 12 runs on 12 hits and four walks over 7.1 innings.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2019
2017
De Jong, a second-round pick in 2012, found new life with the Twins after a midseason trade from Seattle. Minnesota had him stop using his two-seam fastball and focus on his four-seam fastball, which resulted in an increased strikeout rate (7.8 K/9 at Triple-A). De Jong earned a promotion to the majors as a result, where he continued to roll with a 3.57 ERA in four starts. De Jong wouldn't appear to have much upside with poor velocity (89.3 mph fastball) and as a flyball pitcher without great control. Still, he could carve out a productive role with the Twins if he can improve his command and the Twins can return to their outstanding outfield defense of 2017. He'll compete for a back-end rotation spot or long-relief role this spring, but likely needs to show his improvement is real with a return to Triple-A.
De Jong was acquired in July 2015 for international bonus slot money, which the Dodgers didn't need anyway because they had already well exceeded their pool. Since then, he has posted solid numbers as he's worked his way through the minors, progressing enough to where the Dodgers decided to add him to their 40-man roster for Rule 5 protection. He put up a 2.86 ERA in 141.2 innings with Double-A Tulsa this season, with a 1.03 WHIP and 125 strikeouts, earning promotion to Triple-A Oklahoma City at the end of the season. He was roughed up during the Pacific Coast League playoffs, allowing nine earned runs in 10 innings, but his overall body of work was strong. Given that injury woes forced the Dodgers to use 15 different starting pitchers in 2016 and 16 in 2015, it's quite possible that De Jong could find himself throwing a spot start or two in the majors by the end of the 2017 season.
