Player Notes

  • Dallas Keuchel available out of pen Game 7
    Astros manager A.J. Hinch has already made it known that it will be an "all hands on deck" approach for the club's pitching staff in Game 7 of the ALCS against the Yankees on Saturday.

    Advice: "I'll use every pitcher on the staff if we have to to get 27 outs" Hinch told reporters after Friday's victory. Presumably, that means the entire staff minus Justin Verlander who fired 99 pitches over seven shutout innings in Friday's win, but stranger things have happened. Keuchel has already announced that he's available for Saturday's elimination game. Rotoworld.com 42 minutes ago
  • Morton will start Game 7 versus the Yankees
    Astros manager A.J. Hinch announced Charlie Morton will start Game 7 of the ALCS versus the Yankees on Saturday.

    Advice: He will oppose starter CC Sabathia of the Yankees. Morton is fresh off a beatdown at the hands of the Yankees on Monday in Game 3 of the series. He was shelled for seven runs in 3 2/3 innings in that one and seems like a shaky choice in a must-win game. He has a 10.13 ERA in eight post-season innings across two starts. Morton pitched well in the regular season, turning in a 14-7 record with a 3.62 ERA and 163 strikeouts in 146 2/3 innings. He will likely be on a short leash in this game as Hinch stated the pitching staff will be "all hands on deck" in Game 7. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:53 pm
  • Verlander fires seven shutout frames vs Yanks
    Justin Verlander struck out eight batters while firing seven shutout frames to beat the Yankees 7-1 in Game 6 of the ALCS on Friday.

    Advice: He was on top of his game and didn't give the Yankees any chance to do much damage all night. He scattered five hits -- all singles -- issued one walk and hit one batter. It was his second win in the series to go with a 0.56 ERA and 21 strikeouts in 16 innings. The Astros gave up a ton of money and a load of prospect talent to get Verlander on September 1st but his performance in the playoffs has made it all worthwhile. He is 4-0 with a 0.93 ERA in 24 2/3 post-season innings. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:35 pm
  • Bregman goes 1-for-3 with two runs, two RBI
    Alex Bregman went 1-for-3 with two RBI and two runs scored in a win over the Yankees in Game 6 of the ALCS on Friday.

    Advice: He walked and scored on a Brian McCann double to put the Astros ahead 1-0 in the fifth inning. He broke the game open with a double that plated two runs in the eighth inning, then dashed home on a sacrifice fly lifted by designated hitter Evan Gattis. Bregman now owns a paltry .150 batting average in this series and a .184 average in the post-season as a whole. It hasn't been pretty but he came up big with the season on the line tonight.

  • McCann goes 2-for-4 with an RBI and a run
    Brian McCann went 2-for-4 and drove in a run with a clutch double against the Yankees on Friday.

    Advice: He stroked a ground rule double to drive in the game's first run in the fifth inning. It was the first crack in what had been a tight pitchers' duel between Luis Severino and Justin Verlander. McCann came around to score on a single by Jose Altuve as the Astros took a 3-0 lead they would never relinquish. He had been 2-for-26 in the post-season prior to tonight.
