Dominguez came over from the Marlins in the Carlos Lee deal, and was recalled from Triple-A prior to Thursday’s contest.

Still just 23 years old, there could be offensive upside here in the future, but he’s unlikely to contribute much more this season.

Astros optioned 3B Matt Dominguez to Triple-A Oklahoma City.
Current Astros’ starting third baseman Chris Johnson is having a pretty decent year, so the newly-acquired Dominguez will get more at-bats in the minors.

It’s unknown exactly how the playing time will be split up after the Carlos Lee trade, but in the first game it was Dominguez getting the call at the hot corner and Chris Johnson moving across the diamond to first base. Even if he does garner consistent playing time, Dominguez shouldn’t merit consideration in most mixed leagues, as he’s unlikely to generate much offensive production.
