Why this week matters: Wait and see with Keuchel

Although Dallas Keuchel is projected to miss only one start, there's no way to know how his neck will respond to treatment or if this will be a recurring issue.

Revisiting preseason questions: Astros

In mid-February, we wondered if the Astros' rotation was strong enough to make them contenders. That group has been awfully sharp so far, and voila, Houston tops MLB's standings.

ESPN Stats and Information  

The Astros can't seem to find a way to beat the Indians this season, losing four of their five meetings and scoring 1.5 less runs per game than against all other opponents.

ESPN Stats and Information  

After struggling out of the gate in 2016, Dallas Keuchel has been lights out through his first nine starts of this season. The 2015 AL Cy Young winner is leading the MLB with a 1.84 ERA.

Astros say Keuchel injury is not serious (0:56)

Seeing Dallas Keuchel head to the DL is the Astros' worst nightmare, but he's expected to miss just one start. Absent their workhorse, this could add to Chris Devenski's mid game workload in the short term, and long-term boosts the odds they deal for a top starter by the deadline.

Astros 2B José Altuve became the first player in franchise history with two doubles and two triples in the same game during Wednesday's 3-0 win vs. the Marlins. It was the first time any player had accomplished the feat since the Rays' Carl Crawford in 2005. (Elias Sports Bureau)


BBTN: Bautista Causes A Stir, Cubs' Hoyer, More

Before a conversation with Cubs GM Jed Hoyer about Chicago's struggles, Buster Olney and Jerry Crasnick discuss the reaction to another Bautista bat flip, the Mets' woes and more. Plus, Marly Rivera on the Astros' hot start and Starlin Castro's resurgence in New York.

ESPN Stats and Information  

Astros right-hander Lance McCullers (4-1) added six innings with no earned runs on Wednesday vs. the Marlins to six against the Yankees and seven against the Angels in his two previous starts.

David Schoenfield ESPN Senior Writer 

With today's shutout over the Marlins, the Astros are 29-12 -- the same record the Cubs had last season after 41 games. The impressive thing: Other than Dallas Keuchel and Marwin Gonzalez, nobody is playing out of their minds. The bullpen has had some hiccups. They're not getting much production from Carlos Beltran. Mike Fiers has allowed 16 home runs already. And they're on a 114-win pace.

ESPN Stats and Information  

The Astros' 12-2 win Tuesday vs. the Marlins improved Houston's record to an MLB-best 28-12. Per the Elias Sports Bureau, three of the last four teams to win at least 28 of their first 40 games went on to win the World Series that year: the White Sox in 2005, Red Sox in 2007 and Cubs in 2016. The exception was the Rays in 2010.

ESPN Stats and Information  

Two of Tuesday's five longest home runs traveled 450 feet or more, including a 453-foot homer from Rays DH Corey Dickerson against the Indians.
