 Mike Minor and the Texas Rangers will not play their scheduled Monday night contest against the Angels. This sadly comes after the baseball world learned about the tragic passing of a Los Angeles Angel. The next three games are expected to be played, but the makeup game will have to be rescheduled for a later date.

Notes 
  The Astros replaced Keuchel with Wade Miley and Charlie Morton with rookie Josh James, but now that he is hurt, you'd better believe that as soon as Whitley is ready, the Astros will call him up. Assuming that is before the All-Star break, Whitley is an excellent draft and stash option if you have enough bench spots. He could have a Walker Buehler like impact from the get-go.
