It’s championship season for Houston-area volleyball teams as the start of the trek to Garland, Texas – the site of the UIL state tournament – begins now.

So let’s take a look at the favorites coming out of Houston. We begin in Class 6A Region III, where the upper part of the bracket is brutal. Ridge Point, Cypress Ranch, Dawson, Seven Lakes and Friendswood will battle it out just to get to the Regional Finals.

The lower part of the bracket sees Langham Creek, up-start Tompkins, Pearland, Kingwood and Atascocita as the favorites.

In Region III, The Woodlands and Oak Ridge will be on a collision-course to the Regional Finals. Also, watch out for Klein.

In Class 5A Region III, Kingwood Park, Willis, Tomball, Manvel and Barbers Hill are the top squads in H-Town, while Foster will be a tough out in Region IV.

Check out Vype for complete brackets.

With Jake Odorizzi having completed two rehab starts in the minors, it appears he could join the Astros rotation as soon as July 4th, if the Astros decide to go that route. With Odorizzi's return in mind, will the Astros move to a 6-man rotation considering they only have one off-day before the All-Star break, and 19 consecutive games after the break?

Or, will Cristian Javier once again be moved to the bullpen to make room for Odorizzi and keep Verlander pitching every fifth day?

Plus, we examine how the timing of Lance McCullers' hopeful return may come too late for the Astros to trade away some key starting pitching depth before the trade deadline.

We discuss this and much more in the video above! Check it out!
