This week's Home Team Hero is J.J. Watt. After raising millions of dollars for Houstonians after Hurricane Harvey, Watt is giving back to the Houston community again. J.J. responded after the tragedy at Santa Fe High School by offering to pay for the funerals of the 10 victims, and visited the survivors at the hospital. Watt always seems to be ready to help whenever he's needed.

You can give to Santa Fe High School too by donating to their gofundme page here.

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.
