USA Today's Bob Nightengale is reporting that Framber Valdez and the Astros got good news when an MRI came back on Valdez's finger which showed "significant healing." Valdez fractured his left ring finger during a start two weeks ago when he fielded a ball hit back to the pitching mound.

Many believed this injury could force Valdez to have surgery, which might cost him the entire season. Let's hope this report is correct and Valdez won't have to have surgery, which could have him back sooner than later. The Astros can certainly use him at the top of the rotation with Justin Verlander likely out for the year after having Tommy John surgery.

With the NFL Draft right around the corner, Texans GM Nick Caserio met with the media to discuss the team's approach this year since they no longer have a first round pick. He also answered questions about the acquisition of Stefon Diggs, and addressed any concerns the team has about their new receiver having the reputation as a “diva.”

In the video above, Rich Eisen reacts to Caserio's presser and projects how the season will play out for the Texans with Diggs added to the team. Let's just say he's bullish on the Texans.
