Astros: Should Myles Straw or Tony Kemp stay on the roster?

The Astros will soon have a roster crunch when Aledmys Diaz and Carlos Correa return from the IL following their rehab assignments. Much has been written about Tyler White‘s struggles, and I find it unlikely he will survive such a roster crunch. But there also may not be room for both Tony Kemp and Myles Straw.

These two are similar players in that they provide good speed and generally decent contact at the plate. They’re both primary outfielders but also can play an infield position (Straw can play shortstop and Kemp second base).
