Who Will Be the 26th Man in Mexico, and What Will it Tell Us?

Who Will Be the 26th Man in Mexico, and What Will it Tell Us?

The Astros play a day game today in Minny, where it should be a balmy 60 degrees, before a rare Friday off day. According to MLB rules, one can add a 26th player for international games, but that player can’t be a pitcher. That would have been the obvious move, since the team has only 7 BP arms. Who will Luhnow call up for two games in Mexico against the Angels? In order to tame the fever around Yordan-mania, Hinch said that it would be somebody from the 40 man. No Alvarez! Cue the #Losenow memes. That leaves four players: Garrett Stubbs, Myles Straw, Kyle Tucker, and Derek Fisher....

Is It Time to Call Up Yordan Alvarez? (POLL)

Yordan Alvarez is destroying PCL pitching, and calls to have him join the big club are growing louder. Every year, there is one Astros hitting prospect whose call-up and major league debut is highly anticipated. In 2014, it was George Springer. In 2015, it was Carlos Correa. The following year, Alex Bregman made his way to Houston. Derek Fisher was the touted call-up of 2017. Last year, July 7 was “Ted day”, marking the debut of Kyle Tucker. Yordan Alvarez is doing everything he can in Round Rock to ensure that 2019 belongs to him. In 17 games, Alvarez is batting .339, with an...
