Charlie Pallilo, Jake Asman, and Raheel Ramzanali share their thoughts on which pitcher they believe will take the mound for Houston in Game 4 of the ALDS.

According to multiple reports, the Astros are finalizing a deal to sign former White Sox first baseman Jose Abreu to a free agent contract.

The 35-year-old first baseman finished last season hitting .304 with 15 home runs, 75 RBI, and a .824 OPS. Abreu provides plenty of pop, with five seasons with at least 30 homers in his career.

This move most likely comes at the expense of Houston Astros first baseman and local favorite, Yuli Gurriel, who is also a free agent this offseason. On the other hand, the Astros had to upgrade at DH, and maybe Gurriel could still return to the team in a utility role or back at first base.

We'll update the details on Abreu's contract as the information becomes available.
