Houston is a well oiled machine who can hit with the best of them and more importantly pitch with the best of them. One can argue they have the most balance. Players like George Springer, Jose Altuve, Michael Brantley, Yuli Gurriel, Alex Bregman have been fantastic as expected. The pleasant surprise has been rookie Yordan Alvarez who has taken the league by storm. Alvarez is hitting .355 with 17 homers and 51 RBI’s in only 46 games.
