Fast as the Mariners started, the Astros are already on top in the AL West and they are big favorites to stay there until the end of 162.
They has won four in a row against the A’s and 10 overall before Oakland finally won on Wednesday night, 2–1, behind Frankie Montas. Wade Miley pitched well in defeat for the ‘Stros.
Josh Reddick’s 111 OPS+ represents the lowest of the nine regulars in AJ Hinch’s lineup and Justin Verlander struck out 11 without walking a batter in Seattle the last time he took the ball. All is good in Houston.
In December of 2017, the Cubs signed Drew Smyly for two years, knowing that he would miss most of the 2018 season to recover from Tommy John surgery.
He threw just one inning in the minor leagues in 2018 and the Cubs cut ties, sending him and what remains on his $10 million contract to Texas for, well, not much of anything.
Texas isn’t very good and will kind of take what it can get on the mound. So far, the Smyly experiment hasn’t been anything to be proud of.
He went three innings in his first start of the season (vs. Houston) and pitched out of trouble to finish with just one run to his name, despite four hits and two walks.
In two starts since then, he’s gone 8.1 innings, given up 10 hits, eight runs, and struck out nine to go along with five walks.
