Notes 
 Valdez isn't getting enough credit for basically saving Houston's season last summer. Following the loss of Gerrit Cole to free agency, the loss of Justin Verlander to Tommy John surgery, and the loss of Zack Greinke's effectiveness, Valdez stepped up in a big way. He both increased his strikeout rate and lowered his walk rate to produce a career-best season. Unfortunately, this also came with a less-than-ideal hard-hit rate. Living in the zone more often led to batters doing more damage with Valdez's offerings. This was also combatted by his increased sinker usage, which led to many of these batted balls going directly into the ground. His breakout looks real, and I'm investing accordingly.
