    The Crawfish Boxes: New hope in the rotation: Jose Urquidy dominates Rangers. Astros take game two, 6-1

    Jeff Luhnow reportedly commented today that the Astro are set in the starting rotation, at least from positions one through three, but that their only need for the playoffs is for the occasional # 4 pitcher in a potential ALCS or World Series .

    Well let's hold off on that a bit. Maybe, just maybe, the Astros found a #4.

    It's only one game of course, but Jose Urquidy, fresh back up from AAA, was dominant today. His performance could rank as one of the top three starts by an Astros pitcher all year. He went seven innings, allowed two hits, no walks, and one run on a Shin-Soo Chu solo home run.

    House of Houston: Houston Astros: Another injury update on Carlos Correa and Aledmys Diaz

    The Houston Astros have been 9-4 since the All-Star Break, which is definitely representative of a remarkable feat considering the challenges that they've faced with the injuries that have been on deck as of late.

    At one point, Jose Altuve, George Springer, Carlos Correa and Aledmys Diaz were all on the shelf, which took a ton of firepower out of the lineup while they recovered from their ailments. Altuve and Springer have since been back for a few weeks now and they look like they're back to their old selves once again.

    Fansided: Astros: What's the first base situation with Tyler White gone?

    When news broke that the Astros had designated Tyler White for assignment, it seemed like a decision that simply had to be made. White never could get it going at the plate this season, hitting just .225/.320/.330 in 71 games. The offense should be improved with a different bat in the lineup.

    White started 40 games at first base this season and was inserted into the game there another eight times. That's a lot of defensive innings and a lot of starts for the team to replace this season. Plus, since White couldn't stick, he's likely not part of the team's future plans either.

    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.
