    Fansided: Astros rumored to have interest in upgrade over Stassi

    Former Astros catcher Martin Maldonado was traded from the Royals to the Cubs earlier this week, which in and of itself wasn't that noteworthy. But the juicy tidbit came after the trade when The Athletic's Ken Rosenthal reported the Astros had interest in re-acquiring him to possibly replace Max Stassi.

    With all the talk about the Astros upgrading the pitching staff, little attention has been given to the spot behind the plate. While it may not be the team's most pressing need, there is some clear room for improvement.

    Fansided: Astros Designate Tyler White for Assignment, call up Jose Urquidy

    With the Astros current pitching situation and the inevitable return of Carlos Correa and Aledmys Diaz, some tough roster decisions had to be made. Jose Urquidy has been called back up to start Saturday's game and Tyler White was the odd man out this time to make the roster room.

    Houston now has seven days to trade White or put him up on waivers, making him available for other teams to pick him up. If neither one of those happens, the Astros have the choice to release him or assign him to one of their Minor League teams.

    The Crawfish Boxes: Game Thread 99, July 19th, 2019, 7:10 CDT, Rangers vs. Astros.

    Wasn't the trip to Anaheim full of drama and excitement? The Astros couldn't make the opener concept work for them in games 1 &2 in LA, and they couldn't score much on those nights either, getting clobbered in both games. (literally and figuratively, right Jake?) But it all came together on the last two nights, behind Verlander and Miley, with the Astros outscoring the Angels 17-4 in those games.

    Bad karma to the Angels for throwing at Marisnick?

    Classic pitcher's duel tonight. All Stars Justin Verlander (11-4, 2.98 ERA) and Mike Minor (8-4, 2.73 ERA) face off

    Although just a few weeks ago the Rangers were breathing down the Astos' backs, a close second place in the AL West, they are now in third place, but a full 10 games behind the first place Stros.

    House of Houston: Houston Astros: A proposed move that almost costed Max Stassi his job

    Houston Astros fans -- things are getting hot and heavy before the MLB trade deadline as we're now less than two weeks to go before the proverbial D-Day for the league's 30 franchises. Some will be buyers and some will be sellers but it's good to know that our team will be on the buying side.

    Obviously, we know that the Houston Astros are trying to do their utmost to bring in some quality, veteran pitching arms to help what has been quite a taxed, yet stressed rotation busting at the seams.

    Earlier in the season, grabbing a quality left-handed reliever would've been enough but with the latest injury to Brad Peacock and some of our prospects not living up to the hype, the Houston Astros have a real problem and they need to seek starting pitching help.

    The Crawfish Boxes: Tyler White designated for assignment. Jose Urquidy called up to start tomorrow's game

    According to Mark Berman of Fox 26, the Astros have designated for assignment 1B/ DH. Tyler White.

    The pitching deprived Astros have called up Jose Urquidy to the 25-man roster to replace him. Urquidy will start tomorrow's game.

    White has seven days to pass through waivers. Chandler Rome explains all the possibilities here:

    The Astros have seven days to either trade Tyler White or pass him through waivers. If White goes unclaimed on waivers, he will either be outrighted back to an Astros minor league affiliate or released

    White slashed .225/.320/.330 with 74 strikeouts in 253 plate appearances-- Chandler Rome (@Chandler_Rome) July 20, 2019

    After hitting 12 home runs in only 66 games last year, the Astros relied on him to provide similar punch from the DH position this year.

    The Crawfish Boxes: Four Astros homers give Mike Minor major problems. Astros beat Rangers 4-3

    MLB

    If it wasn't for home run luck, the Astros wouldn't have had any luck at all tonight. They could only muster seven hits, but the four home runs among them were the margin of victory over the Rangers.

    Not that all the home runs were exactly lucky. Especially not this one by Yordan Alvarez.
