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.
