The Yankees have been at the center of almost every trade rumor and will have a lot on their minds as they begin a 3 game set in Houston on Monday.
The Astros have came back from the dead and are now right within striking distance in the AL Wes.t
New York Yankees
The Yankees bullpen is one of the best in the MLB and that has stemmed them into getting plenty of phone calls.
While they’ve said Chapman is going to be traded, they’ve also said Andrew Miller is going to be retained. The first part of that is about to come true as it came out Sunday night that Chapman would be on the move to Chicago.
In return, the Yankees receive Cubs prospect Gleyber Torres. In 94 games this season, Torres has hit .275 with 9 homers and 47 runs batted in.
Despite all this, New York sits 7.5 out of the AL East and 4.5 out of the Wild Card. They send out RH Michael Pineda, who will look to try to get the Yankees closer.
Pineda struck out 8 last time out in 6.0 scoreless innings against a very impressive Baltimore offense.
The RH has won just 1 of 4 starts against Houston, thanks to the offense putting up 16 runs back on April 6th.
The Astros started the season with the worst record in the AL and looked like all the preseason predictions of them being a top team weren’t true.
However, the script has been flipped. Houston sits just 2.5 games behind the Rangers for the AL West lead and just 0.5 game behind the Wild Card. Winners of 4 straight, winning streaks have become a familiar sight for them as of late.
Top prospect Alex Bregman was called up Sunday and is expected to be in the lineup on Monday.
Pitching wise, Houston will send out LH Dallas Keuchel. He continues to pitch like the Keuchel of old, not recording a loss over his last 6 starts.
In 4 career starts, Keuchel has gone 3-1 with a 1.45 ERA against the Yankees.

Free New York Yankees vs. Houston Astros MLB Prediction:
New York will be without Chapman here and with the rumors swirling, does that hurt the Yankees mentality?
New York is still in the race, but shipping away key parts has to start getting into the heads of their players.
