Astros to draft a pitcher with No. 17 pick?
In his latest mock draft, Keith Law now has Houston selecting Illinois right-handed pitcher Cody Sedlock with the No. 17 pick. Sedlock is still working on a few pitches, but his fastball is strong in the mid-90s. Law: Mock draft 2.0 (Insider)

Luck a factor for Astros hitters?
Carlos Gomez has suffered a massive OPS decline this season. Meanwhile, Jose Altuve and Jason Castro have seen notable improvement at the plate. Are these performances for real or is luck -- good or bad -- a factor? FiveThirtyEight has the answer. Hitting hard, or into hard luck?
Keuchel might not get back on track
Dallas Keuchel has performed much worse than expected this season, but that has actually been the norm for the left-hander in every year except 2015's Cy Young campaign, Baseball Info Solutions notes. Don't expect the left-hander to return to his award-winning form. Pitchers who won't rebound (Insider)
