How an exciting new reality is taking shape for Astros slugger Chas McCormick

Chas McCormick continues to dominate this season. Is it fair to call him the top CF in the American League, over guys like Julio Rodriguez and Luis Robert?

While many people might scoff at the thought of McCormick being a better center fielder than Julio Rodriguez, the numbers tell a very interesting story. Chas currently has a .917 OPS and Rodriguez is sitting at .798. That's a big difference. How about slugging percentage? McCormick .544, Rodriguez .462.

Finally, let's look at home runs. Julio has Chas beat with 21 to McCormick's 19. But Rodriguez has over 500 at-bats and McCormick has less than 300.

Be sure to watch the video above as Jeremy Branham makes his case for McCormick.

The Houston Texans have a huge game against the Jacksonville Jaguars this week, and they must come away with a victory if they want to avoid falling to 0-3 on the season.

And don't look now, but beating the Jags just got a little more difficult with Aaron Wilson reporting that Derek Stingley Jr is expected to miss multiple weeks with a hamstring injury. Plus, nickel corner Tavierre Thomas will also be out after having surgery on his hand.

The Texans are dealing with a massive amount of injuries just two weeks into the season. But one could argue some of these could have been avoided.

Both Stingley and guard Kenyon Green (IR) had injury concerns coming out of college and GM Nick Caseiro decided to draft them in the top half of the first round, despite those red flags.

Green will miss the rest of the season needing shoulder surgery, and if Stingley is placed on IR and misses 4 games, he will have only played in 11 of a possible 23 games to start his career. Don't forget, Stingley missed time due to a hamstring issue in 2022 as well.

And let's not forget, Caserio passed on All-Pro corner Sauce Gardner, when he decided to draft Stingley No. 3 overall in 2022. The Jets selected Gardner with the very next pick.

Be sure to watch the video above as we discuss the implications of these injuries for the Texans and Caserio's future in Houston.
