Houston Astros Face Uphill Battle Amidst Injury Woes and Tough Schedule Ahead

The Houston Astros are facing challenges in the current season due to the physical strain of past successful seasons and deep playoff runs. Injuries have impacted their rotation, with key players such as Jose Urquidy and Cristian Javier out of commission, while Lance McCullers Jr. and Luis Garcia are unlikely to pitch before the All-Star break. The team is not performing at the level of previous seasons, prompting speculation about possible moves before the trade deadline. Despite a strong recent performance by Valdez, he will face a formidable opponent in Webb in the upcoming game. The San Francisco Giants hold a better home record than the Astros on the road. Given Houston's recent loss and the pitching prowess of Webb, the advantage is likely to be in favor of the Giants in their upcoming matchup.
