Jermaine Every: Texans continue to celebrate mediocrity

The Texans had a draft party on Friday night despite not having a pick until the 3rd round. Houston used their 1st round pick to acquire Deshaun Watson, which worked out just fine. But trading away their 2nd rounder just to rid themselves of Brock Osweiler's contract is another story all together. They didn't even use that extra cap space to acquire any big-name free agents, and that money would have come off the books anyway.

MLB Network's Jon Heyman is reporting that starting pitcher Jake Odorizzi and the Astros have agreed on a 2-year year contract with a 3rd-year player option. Odorizzi is 30 years old with a 3.92 career ERA. This signing seems to indicate Framber Valdez will miss significant time with a fractured left ring finger. But overall, the Astros rotation is looking good with the addition of Odorizzi, and hopefully Valdez will return to the rotation at some point this season.
