Daily notes

Astros are in the mix for one of Tampa Bay Rays starting pitchers as the industry waits for Rays to decide whic young bats they want

Jayson Stark ESPN Senior Writer 

Other clubs report the Astros are still hunting for starters but only if it's a rotation upgrade. Could be a fit on Edinson Volquez or the Rays' starters

White to be called back up by Astros

First baseman Tyler White will rejoin the Astros in Detroit for their series against the Tigers, according to the Houston Chronicle. The 25-year-old was sent to Triple-A Fresno on July 15 and was hitting .288 with 11 home runs in 34 games during his stint with the team. Houston Chronicle

Youth is served as McCullers beats Yanks

Lance McCullers struck out 10 in the Astros' win over the Yankees on Wednesday. Over the last 40 years, only three pitchers have beaten the Yankees while recording 10 or more K's at a younger age than McCullers (22 years, 299 days old), the Elias Sports Bureau notes.

  • Moose Haas (21 years, 355 days on April 12, 1978)
  • Mark Prior (22 years, 274 days on June 8, 2003)
  • Matt Moore (22 years, 96 days on Sept. 22, 2011)

Small chance Astros trade Bregman

Alex Bregman just got called up and even though the Astros just signed Cuban third baseman Yulieski Gurriel, Bregman looks like a future All-Star even if his ultimate position is unclear. Schoenfield: Untouchable players for all 30 teams

Correa projected to earn #MLBRank spot

It would've been a reach for 21-year-old Carlos Correa to make our all-time top-100 list after just one full MLB season. However, Dan Szymborski thinks his projected WAR would be good enough for inclusion in five years. #MLBRank: Future top 100 candidates
