Olney: Why the Astros should go after Zach Britton

The Astros already have a really good bullpen, but Britton could help Houston the way Aroldis Chapman and Andrew Miller helped the Cubs and Indians, respectively, in 2016.

What are the Dodgers and Astros looking to do at the deadline?

With playoff spots inevitable, MLB's two juggernauts have the flexibility to say no. But should they choose to pursue deals -- perhaps for an outfield bat in L.A. or a pitcher in Houston -- it'll be only for October's sake.

Correa disappointed to miss 6-to-8 weeks (1:32)
How does Correa's injury impact the Astros? (1:55)

Eric Karabell ESPN Senior Writer 

Astros shortstop Carlos Correa will miss 6-to-8 weeks with a thumb injury and it's obviously big news in fantasy but don't drop him. He could return for early September as the Astros ready for playoffs. It's like the Mike Trout injury/absence. Marwin Gonzalez and Alex Bregman should handle shortstop for Houston and each add value. Each should already be owned in your league. Bregman will hit. Let's see who hits third in the lineup. Tonight it's Josh Reddick, and that's good for him. Yuli Gurriel moves up as well.

Jerry Crasnick ESPN Senior Writer 

The loss of Carlos Correa for 6-8 weeks with a torn thumb ligament is a hit to the Astros. But Correa is expected to return in plenty of time for the postseason, and Houston should be OK at shortstop with Marwin Gonzalez and/or Alex Bregman. That's the luxury of playing .667 ball and having a 15 1/2 game lead in the American League West: GM Jeff Luhnow doesn't have to rush out and make a panic trade.

ESPN Stats and Information  

Carlos Correa is expected to be out 6-8 weeks with a torn ligament in his left thumb. Correa is second on the Astros in Wins Above Replacement (4.8), trailing only José Altuve, and ranks first among all MLB shortstops in most major offensive categories. The Astros enter the day an AL-best 62-31, the only team in the AL West above .500, and own the largest division lead in baseball at 15.5 games.

Real or Not? A strange and wild day for the Astros

A "funeral" for a glove, a rehab start for their ace, an injury and a loss in extras made for an unrelaxed 24 hours for what should be a relaxed team.

ESPN Stats and Information  

Lance McCullers Jr. allowed more than three runs in a home start for the first time in his career against the Mariners. McCullers Jr. had gone 27 straight home starts with three or fewer runs allowed, which was the longest streak by a player to start their career since the mound was moved to its current distance in 1893 according to the Elias Sports Bureau.
