These critical factors lay the groundwork for Houston Astros second half surge


The Houston Astros head into the All-Star break trailing the Texas Rangers by only two games in the American League West.

Jose Altuve and Yordan Alvarez are looking to start a rehab assignment in the minors shortly after the All-Star break, so that's good news for the Astros offense.

Altuve and Alvarez have only played in 13 games together so far this season, and the Astros' record in those games is 10-3. So they definitely can provide a boost to the club.

Be sure to watch the video above as the guys discuss what they learned from the first half of the season, how they see the second half playing out, and much more.
