Taylor Rene: The Texans will finish closer to last place than first place

The Texans are going to have trouble overtaking the Jaguars and the Titans in the division because Houston hasn't improved the roster significantly in the offseason, and Jacksonville and Tennessee aren't going anywhere. Sure, the Texans added a few pieces in the draft and free agency, but so did the rest of the division.

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.
