How Astros top-notch pitching performances just recalibrated expectations

The Houston Astros have already dealt with their fair share of injuries this season, but the pitching staff has done an admirable job filling in for Lance McCullers, Luis Garcia, and Jose Urquidy to this point.

Hunter Brown is managing to live up to lofty expectations, and JP France has looked terrific in his first two big league starts. And even Brandon Bielak is keeping the team in the ball game when he's had his opportunities to start.

While many were concerned about the Astros starting rotation while the team is waiting on their starters to get healthy, it now looks like they have the depth to weather the storm until Urquidy and McCullers are hopefully ready to return around the All-Star break.
