What's going on with Whitley and Bukauskas this year?
Whitley is at the spring training facility fixing some mechanics stuff. He was about as bad as could be to start this season.

Bukauskas was trending in the right direction but had a blow up game his last outing

Whitley was also on the IL wasn't he?

Or was that one of those "shoulder discomfort" IL stints?

Whitley (shoulder) is expected to resume mound work within the next couple weeks, Brian McTaggart of MLB.com reports.

Whitley was placed on the minor-league injured list in late May with right shoulder fatigue and has been rehabbing at the Astros' spring training facility in Florida. The 21-year-old is expected to return to minor-league games around the third week of July, assuming he avoids any setbacks.

Joe Smith to the 60-day DL? I thought he was somewhat close to being back relatively speaking
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.

I think it can count back to the beginning of the season so he can still come back when his rehab assignment is complete in a week or two. They would just need to make another 40 man roster move. Probably something like DFA Dean Deetz or AJ Reed. Or they could put Corbin Martin on the 60 day IL as well if his injury is serious enough.

I think they are just cheating the system. He's been out long enough to qualify for it, so it frees up a spot on the 40-man. But when he comes back after the ASB it will put them in a bind. Someone on the 40-man will have to go bye bye.

edit: yeah, Bearkat is probably right. They could use Corbin on the 60 if it were a real problem with him.

Straw at short and Yuli at 1st.

I actually think I would prefer this line-up except with Robbie until Correa gets back. Would rather have Straw be a pest at the plate, maybe get a hit or walk, and have speed on for the top of the order.

I agree. Hopefully we see more of it if Straw can prove himself adequate at SS.

Man Kemp's PT has all but vanished.

Hope we find a taker for him because he's seriously just wasting a spot on the roster right now in a time when we need spots.

If we trade for pitching, he probably gets shipped off to the other team.

This team needs a win in a bad way. My BAS is kicking in high gear right now.

We can't rely solely on Verlander and Cole in the postseason ... we've got to get another all star caliber starter

Absolutely need a number 3 at this point. Can't rely on the mash of McHugh/Peacock/Valdez/Random to win games.

Their lineup is really good, but not this good. Peacock has sucked as a starter in 18 and 19 for the most part

35 pitches and counting. He won't get past 4 innings even if he stops the bleeding here.

I'm going to say it now. We may very well have a 4.5 game lead by this evening. This is officially a race. I don't care how crappy we think the Rangers are. They are winning and we aren't.

I know its semantics, but a ball hit to the first row of the Crawford Boxes is not a bomb.

I wouldn't go so far as to say the we're in danger of not winning the division, but the lack of organizational pitching depth is concerning. I think we need to make a move for a headline arm and 1-2 smaller deals for veteran undervalued bullpen guys that we can mold.
