That's great news! He tore it up spring training but I figured starting the year at AA we wouldn't see him until September 2020.

Interesting that he also played some catcher in the minors.

Ugh. Not gonna lie, getting tired of seeing call ups that aren't Tucker.


Yeah you probably said that when they called up Yordan too. Go take a look at the guy's numbers this season. I'm looking forward to seeing what he can do.

So someone Hs to get cut from the 40 man right?

Dean Deetz
Reymin Guduan
Brady Rogers

Those have to be the likely cast offs right?

But even if the IL shuffle does not happen, do you really expect any of the guys listed above to be a difference maker at any point for the Astros? Don't want to lose a player for nothing, but their value to the existing active roster is zero.

I hope Toro smashes immediately because I take this as a sign that Correa is going to be hurt awhile. Probably out for the majority of the playoffs. We may never see him in an Astros jersey again.

Guessing they cut ties with Jack Mayfield

That'd make room on the 40 and 25 man rosters

I did not. I was a very big "call up Yordan now" advocate.

I hope the guy does well. I honestly know nothing about him other than he hasn't even played much at AAA yet. Which in my mind means it's not likely he is a contributor yet.

I'd hate that. Need to check his numbers, but he's hit into some bad luck... maybe the data doesn't prove that out, though.

Super Jack:

16 G, 54 PA
.132/.148/.286. A HR and 5 2B in 7 hits.

His ISO is .151 and his BABIP is .154. He isn't walking at all. A grand total of 1 BB. But he wasn't walking much in the minors; his walk rate is 6-8%. Striking out at 24% and his minors rate is 16-18%. His pull% is 57% but his soft contact rate is only 15%. Maybe a bit of bad luck with his BABIP as low as it is. When he gets a hit it seems to be solid contact.

I would hate to give up on him after 54 PA. But he's been in AAA for part of 4 years too.

I doubt they cut Super-Jack. I think given his failures in the majors and his recent disciplinary actions, Guduan is most likely to be thrown overboard.

If the Astros brought up Tucker and gave away Reddick free to a good home, the number of posts in this thread would drop by 80%.

No. Not on Texags.

We will just zero in on the next least productive person in the order and the next promising minor leaguer and all the posts will be about them instead.

Still need to make room on the 25 man.

The only reason I think Jack may be a victim is cutting him opens up a spot on both. It's an even trade

Plus is Jack really an integral part of this team's future? **Not that any of the other guys mentioned are**

So good to see Cole slotted in the starter spot for tonight. Hopefully that can kinda get us on a good little roll here and we can win 6 or 7 out of the last 9 remaining this month.

Jeez. That's terrible news.

Best case scenario: He recovers in 4 weeks and finishes rehab assignments just in time for his first appearances to be in the post season.

Worst case scenario: He doesn't come back this season or postseason.

That's frustrating. This should have been done 3 weeks ago when he went on the IL the first time for this issue.

There are no rehab assignments that late since MiLB seasons are over.

He'd go to the Florida facility and work out there.

That would put him back either 2 wks before or right at the start of the postseason.

Good point. Interesting to see how the Astros play this, if he even recovers in time to make it back.

Injuries suck this year. Prayers for a full, healthy and constant playoff roster. Our 9 can and will beat all comers.

Phrasing said:

And a follow up question, assuming we don't sign him to a long term deal and let him go in FA, would you rather shift Bregs to short and get another mid to upper tier 3B, or leave Bregs at 3B and get a new SS?

I would like to leave Yuli at 1B instead of moving him to 3B, but that could be an option depending on the market and what players are available.


I think a likely scenario is Breggy to short and Toro to 3rd. Toro is 22 and been killing it at AA and AAA this year. I would imagine they will sign George to a deal which would probably preclude signing Yuli (who will be 36 at that time I think). Can only carry so many $25-30m deals. Need a tucker or yordon to be able to be able to play 1st in a year or 2.

This post aged well! Yeah, yeah, a little self quoting here and I was only off by a couple years, but even a blind squirrel finds a nut from time t time. Excited to see what Toro can do...
