I am now working on the Washington Nationals Top 20 prospects for 2017 list. The next team in line is the Houston Astros, to be followed by the St. Louis Cardinals, Tampa Bay Rays, San Francisco Giants, Texas Rangers, Philadelphia Phillies, and the Boston Red Sox.
Use this thread to discuss the Houston Astros organization. Some points for potential discussion include, but are certainly not limited to:
***The Astros finished 84-78 in 2016, third place in the American League Western Division. For 2017, is this team a bit over .500 again? Can they get back to 90 wins or better?
***Carlos Correa is still only 22 year old. No point here, I just wanted to mention that. Cool, isn't it?
***What's Alex Bregman's slash line for 2017?
***Can George Springer take another step forward in his age 27 season? Could that make him a non-Trout MVP candidate? Or is that a step too far?
***Do you agree with the Josh Reddick contract?
***Are you comfortable with the starting rotation as is?
***I know a lot of you are on this guy, but I think Franklin Perez (assuming good health caveat) could be a Top 10 MLB pitching prospect a year from now. Agree or disagree?
***As always, feel free to discuss sleeper prospects or anything else Astros-oriented.
