In essence, this is how my projected Astros Opeing Day roster breaks down:
Infield: Altuve, Correa, Bregman, Gonzalez, Gurriel, McCann, Gattis (7)
Outfield: Springer, Reddick, Beltran, Aoki, Marisnick (5)
Starting Rotation: Keuchel, McCullers, McHugh, Morton, Musgrove (5)
Bullpen: Giles, Gregerson, Harris, Devenski, Feliz, Sipp, Chapman, Fiers (8)
We all like to make a big deal about an Opening Day roster. Probably too much so. But it is still a fun exercise to partake in. I have a feeling that my projected roster won’t come to pass exactly. But if you look at the core alone, the 2017 season has the makings of being a memorable one.
