Yeah that's my hope but I doubt they DFA him right now especially with the guys we have on the IL.

This injury update was in Brian McTaggart's Astros story today:


Quote:

Hinch said Friday that Altuve, Springer and Diaz could be sent on Minor League rehab assignments by the end of the homestand. Altuve has been out since May 10 with a strained left hamstring/right leg fatigue. Springer has been out since May 24, and Diaz has been out since May 26, both with strained left hamstrings.

Pretty amped about this Yordan call up. I've got Crawford Box tickets for Tuesday's game, so I've got a chance at snagging his first career HR. He'll probably put a couple into orbit before then, but a man can hope.

Nah. Will be a Tucker repeat. Hit a buck-oh-five and loaf around the field while people make excuses about needing time.

Talking the other day about crazy scores in AAA... Round Rock just won 19-5. 2 days after winning 26-11

Players missing from their team include Yordan Alvarez, Garret Stubbs, Myles Straw, Jack Mayfield

Fightin' Texas Aggie and Sam Houston State Bearkat

They scored 19. But they left 22 on base.

I'm looking for Ray Finkle.... and a clean pair of shorts. I'm just a very big Finkle fan. This is my Graceland, sir.

No clue. I just thought it was a cool thing to tweet out on the day of the biggest call up of the year

The Death Star. The ultimate weapon capable of destroying worlds; itself destroyed by a bratty teenager dropping a bomb up its poopshoot.

Gudwan, mayfield, fisher, straw and white are the possibilities imo.

With us gassed in the bullpen and needing middle infielders more than outfielders for the foreseeable futures that "could" theoretically eliminate gudwan and mayfield even though they have both been terrible.

I wouldn't waste an option on straw as I think he belongs regardless. Fisher I'm meh on.

Not saying it's going to happen but wouldn't surprise me if this is D day for Tyler white

It will be interesting to see what happens. I really do wish that TW could get sent down to work on his swing and his weight. I think the options limit is hurting both sides in this case.

FWIW, ZIPS projections have Alvarez hitting .255/.315/.440, 17 HR & 56 RBI the rest of the season. (equivalent of just under 30 HR/100 RBI over a full season).

That seems a little aggressive and these are the same projections that had TW hitting 20 HR and 75 RBI (oops), so let's keep the anointing oil in its case for now, but what else are they supposed to say about the Barry bonds of AAA...and they are the most accurate around (meaning they are not quite as awful as others.)

Oh really? You're not going to keep using the masseuse that cracked a rib and cost you a spot in the ASG and a chance to shake the "brittle" reputation?

I know it's unlikely, but I'd love to see Alvarez homer, today. Want him to come out as hot as Austin Riley

wonder why Correa won't come out and give the name of the masseuse. Or has he already done so?

Probably doesn't want to ruin that person's career just because they made one mistake. It was obviously not intentional & losing Correa as a client and reference and being non grata with all of his circle is punishment enough.

It'll be known when the lawsuit is filed for malpractice. But Correa's statement that it hurt before the massage was probably not a good thing to say out loud.

This vaunted Orioles pitching staff, worst in MLB, has pretty much silenced the Astros bats in this series. Looking forward to that changing at some point today.

And another 1st where they put 20 plus pitches on us and we barely get 10 on them.
