POINT BLANK IS PRESENTED BY FITZ ROOFING

Here’s what stands between Yordan Alvarez and the AL Rookie of the Year award

Yordan Alvarez is off to a smoking hot start to his career with the Astros, but where does he stack up in the AL Rookie of the Year race?

Alvarez is posting numbers that compete with the rest of the front runners for AL ROY, and he's only played in about half the amount of games as those players.

ESPN 97.5's Joel Blank talks about the incredible numbers Alvarez is posting, and weighs in on who should be the favorite to win AL Rookie of the Year.

TEXANS MAKE SURPRISING CUT

Texans to release prominent player on defense

According to multiple reports, the Texans are waiving LB Zach Cunningham. Cunningham was benched last Sunday for disciplinary reasons, which reportedly stemmed from a missed COVID test. Cunningham was also benched for a quarter earlier in the season for breaking team rules.

According to Ian Rapoport, the Texans will have to eat his 12.8 million dollar cap hit next season.

Cunningham started in seven of the 10 games he’s played this season recording 67 tackles and a forced fumble. The Texans are at a point where there's hardly anyone left on the team that has any name recognition with what's left of the fan base. And now the Texans have another position that will have to be addressed this offseason.

Cunningham will likely command a lot of attention from other teams interested in his services.
