According to several reports, DeMarcus Cousins has agreed to a one-year deal with the Houston Rockets. Cousins has dealt with his fair share of injuries over the past few years, including an Achilles and ACL tear. Cousins last played 30 games in the 2018-2019 season for the Golden State Warriors. Clearly, the Rockets are looking to add more size after signing Christian Wood to a contract over the weekend.

The Astros have now lost five straight games and the starting pitching and bullpen have let them down over that stretch. Cristian Javier was recently demoted to help him build up his stamina so that he can pitch deeper in games as the team's 5th starter when the schedule demands a 5-man starting rotation. But in the meantime, the Astros could desperately use his help out of the bullpen, and he's likely headed for relief duty when Framber Valdez returns from injury anyway. So this begs the question, is a role as the team's fifth starter the best way to maximize Javier's abilities? Check out the video to find out.
