The Astros 2017 Starting Rotation Preview

The starting rotation for the Astros has been set for the Opening Series next week. And the majority of the staff is full of familiar faces.

American Leaguers with something to prove in 2017

The American League is, by and large, an even playing field this season across all divisions, with no absolute, runaway favorite among its ranks. This opens it up to be a league that can be won by riding the hot hand or a free agent striving for the career year, or even a resurgent return from an injury candidate. Despite the well-earned reputation of being an offensive-driven league...

Keuchel says he's back following spring debut

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. (AP) Houston manager A.J. Hinch wasn't pleased to lose an hour of sleep to daylight saving time on Saturday night, but there was a silver lining. He was giving the ball to Dallas Keuchel for his spring debut. ''We were so excited to get Keuchel on the mound we stole an hour,'' Hinch joked. It worked out quite well, too.

At 79-71, Houston sits 3.5 games back of the Toronto Blue Jays and Baltimore Orioles for an AL Wild Card spot. The Astros are 9.5 games back of Texas for the division lead.

Dallas Keuchel’s Attempts to Adjust Back

Just a couple weeks back, Dave Cameron examined the things that should worry us about Dallas Keuchel. He was more nuanced, but we could break it down into three components: lower velocity, fewer calls on the black, and fewer swings. For a guy that had the third-lowest zone percentage in baseball last year, the latter two seem hugely important for his success. So I asked the Astros’...
