    Good news I guess. I was concerned it was a shoulder issue similar to Jakes last year

    Good thing we traded Enmanuel Valdez for a catcher who plays once a week!

    I like Vazquez, but damn.

    Seems extremely unlikely, but Justin Dirden is making a push here for a September call up. Still mashing.

    Valdez has continued his mash tour in Boston farm system.

    This one will hurt if he becomes a player.

    Seemed like a lot of value for what Vazquez is to this team currently.

    Quincy Hamilton had a grand slam last night... he now has 14 home runs on the season.

    He couldn't come off the field under his own power...and it's just a forearm bruise?!?

    From what I saw on twitter, it’s about a month’s rehab.

    He’s done for the season.

    There's always winter ball, curious to see where he starts off next season.

    I expect him to be invited as a non roster player to Spring training then assigned to High A.

    Valdez was way too much. He should have never been included in this type of deal.

    He's got potential to be a bat-first positionless guy, which usually equals "bench" or "DH". I hope he rakes it and makes it, but this bbs overvalues him like nothing I've seen since James Mouton. Or Tyler White. Or....

    If they can retain Vazquez it looks a whole lot better, right?

    The Astros coaches and execs didn't see a big future for Valdez. Good organizations trust what their people say, that's why they hired them.

    Zach Dezenzo hit his second homer for Fayetteville.

    Vasquez is a legit everyday catcher that can hit… what are the odds Valdez approaches a career anywhere nearly as productive?

    Most overrated Astro prospect ever was the guy that got sent to Milwaukee with Hader and then just cut by Tampa.
