    The manner in which the Houston Astros organization has completely bungled its initial handling of the sign-stealing scandal has led to unending mock, ridicule and scorn.

    Lance McCullers Jr. has “been dying” to return to the mound, and “is ready for the season to start tomorrow if it could,” the Astros righty tells MLB.com’s Brian McTaggart.  Recovery from Tommy John surgery in November 2018 kept McCullers sidelined for all of last season, though he said he is on track for Spring…...2019
  • • Astros avoid arbitration with Lance McCullers Jr.
    The Astros have avoided arbitration with righty Lance McCullers Jr., according to (Twitter links). He’ll receive $4.1 million. That’s just what MLBTR and Matt Swartz projected McCullers to earn.

McCullers, 26, will be looking to return from Tommy John su...2019

  • • Report: Astros among teams pursuing Nathan Eovaldi
    The Astros are among the teams showing “continued interest” in righty Nathan Eovaldi, according to MLB.com’s Jon Morosi. Eovaldi has already been connected to a slew of interested parties, including the Phillies, Yankees, Brewers, Braves, Angels, White Sox, Blue Jays, Giants and Padres. The match between the two sides is obvious, and Houston’s interest was widely expected. The Astros lost Lance Mc...2018

    The Mariners are set to retool this offseason, leaving few to no untouchables on their roster. Left-hander James Paxton has emerged as arguably their highest-profile trade candidate early this offseason, and he’s drawing interest from an array of teams, per Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic. As World Series contenders who are seeking starters, the Astros are a logical match for Paxton. Although the cl...2018

    The Astros began last season with a team-record $182M payroll, the fifth-highest mark in the league, but after falling short of their bid to repeat as World Series champs, there’s a possibility that payroll could rise even higher by the start of 2019, according to MLB.com’s Brian McTaggart. They won’t extend beyond the luxury tax mark, but Owner Jim Crane is giving the green light to inch closer t...2018

    Lance McCullers puts a lot of thought into his craft. The 22-year-old right-hander fashions himself a bulldog — understandably so; his father was a big-league closer — but in between starts he puts on his pitching-theorist hat. In many respects, he fits the analytic Astros’ paradigm to a tee. Selected 41st overall by Houston in the 2012 draft, McCullers features a mid-90s fastball and a killer cur...2016
