Jose Siri

As mentioned earlier the battle for playing time in center field is about to get even stickier and the Astros have the luxury of too many players at a premium position. All three are great defenders with room to grow their offensive potential.

Whereas Chas McCormick is a consistent, steady, even-keeled player, Jose Siri is the flamboyant, fiery, energetic, and sometimes overly aggressive player who takes risks that can make or break a game.

Siri’s energy and reckless abandon style of play is in stark contrast to Chas McCormick. Both are not spring chickens as McCormick is 27 years old and Siri is 26, but Siri plays like he’s still a kid with a ton of flash and showmanship.

Siri may have slightly higher trade stock than McCormick in terms of what he could fetch, though it’s not by much.

It’ll be interesting to see which (if either) of these players gets traded.
