Rangers have started to sell off some players at the trade deadline that occurred on Monday. Texas let go of Robin Chirinos and Todd Frazier for a player to be named later from the Mets. Pitcher Mike Minor was also shipped off to Oakland to help them to try to win a title.
Joey Gallo and Lance Lynn were on the trading block, but no one offered anything close to what the Rangers were asking for so they remain Texans for another year.
With two starters out of the lineup, some rookies and players auditioning for playing time will have their shot for their remainder of the year. As a team, the Rangers are the worst offensive team in the league scoring just 3.64 runs per game.
Luis Garcia will make his first start of the year after making six appearances from the pen this year. Garcia is 0-1 with a 5.40 ERA in 2020.
Houston is coming off a long weekend of rest after an off-day on Monday and their game on Sunday being canceled due to COVID concerns.
Carlos Correa has been the best Astro’s player on the year as he leads in the team in average and RBI’s. Kyle Tucker has been a recent spark plug for the offense as he has had three home runs in his last four games. As a team, the Stro’s average 5.33 runs per game which ranks them 4th in the league.
Framber Valdez will make his sixth start of the year looking for his fourth win of the year. Valdez is 3-2 with a 2.35 ERA and 1.096 WHIP. He has allowed 14 runs in 38.1 innings of work to go with his 40 strikeouts.

Free Texas Rangers vs. Houston Astros MLB Prediction:
Astro’s are coming off a few days of rest and I think this is a game the Rangers can steal. Texas is 0-7 on the road in their last seven games in Houston and they have to win one some time and I think here is the spot. Give me the Rangers to have some sort of offense here and squeeze one out against the Stro’s.
