This isn’t the first time Robbie Ray has been in the cross-hairs of the Astros. Houston, along with Philadelphia, was one of the teams expressing interest in him this past offseason. Interestingly enough, the Astros and the Phillies are again the same two teams connected to Ray in recent rumors.
With the latest news about Brad Peacock having a setback in his rehab, the Astros situation with their shrinking starting rotation has become a dire one. Peacock was scheduled to be activated and start tonight’s game against the Angels. After feeling soreness in his right shoulder, that has been delayed indefinitely.
