Astros need Keuchel, rotation to bounce back to contend

HOUSTON (AP) They have the AL batting champion, a big-hitting shortstop and a few newcomers to boost a potent lineup.

What the Houston Astros really need to get back into playoff contention is a bounce-back by Dallas Keuchel and the rotation.

Injuries and inconsistency were themes for Houston's staff last season. That came a year after Jose Altuve, Carlos Correa and the Astros ended a long postseason drought and looked primed for the future.
