A huge shake-up occurred in the Texans' front office

ESPN's Adam Schefter is reporting that Texans team president, Jamey Rootes, resigned from his position. While we have no proof that this move has something to do with Jack Easterby and all the firings that have occurred on Kirby over the last several weeks, it's hard to believe it didn't have something to do with his decision. Either way, it's just another bad look for the Texans. Rootes was with the team for over 20 years. You have to wonder if more changes are coming in the organization. We'll continue to update as more information becomes available.

The Astros have assigned left-handed reliever Matt Gage to minor league camp, which means Houston's pitching staff is likely to head into the season without a lefty in the bullpen.

Ronel Blanco and Seth Martinez are expected to be the last two pitchers in the Astros bullpen now that Gage isn't expected to fill a spot on the club. With the Astros playing so many games in the month of April, could we see Blanco or Martinez making some starts with Lance McCullers still on the shelf?

Plus, should the Astros check in on Yuli Gurriel for some depth considering his versatility and the loss of Jose Altuve for the first couple months of the season? Gurriel still hasn't been added to the Marlins 40-man roster, which means he can opt out of his deal on Saturday if nothing changes.

Based on how things played out for Carlos Correa, the guys aren't very confident the Astros would change their stance on Yuli. But you never know.
