POINT BLANK PRESENTED BY FITZ ROOFING

A.J. Hinch's secret weapon is the Astros' one clear advantage over the Nats

The bullpen came through for the Astros in the ALCS against the Yankees, and Will Harris was a big reason for Houston's success.

The Astros begin the World Series on Tuesday night, and Harris will be relied on to make some big pitches once again in high leverage situations.

ESPN 97.5's Joel Blank discusses how impressive Harris has been in the postseason, and what he expects from him in the World Series. Point Blank is presented by Fitz Roofing.

MLB.com's Brian McTaggart is reporting that Jason Castro will rejoin the Astros after agreeing to a two-year deal with Houston for $7 million which also includes 2 million in incentives. Martín Maldonado and Castro will split the catching duties, which gives the Astros lineup flexibility by having a right-handed and left-handed hitting option at catcher.

Castro was drafted by the Astros 10th overall in 2008 and left in free agency after the 2016 season. Last year, Castro hit .188 and is a career .230 hitter.
