It may have felt like forever for some, but Astros No. 1 prospect Alex Bregman is officially a Major League ballplayer.
Keuchel didn't get the win - the Astros had no answer for the Yankees pitching in a 2-1 loss, falling to 54-45.
With the Aug. 1 non-waiver trade deadline officially a week away, the Astros remain in constant talks with teams and will do so up until the end of the clock.
On a night when a legendary franchise with 27 championship rings safely stored inside its jewelry box visited Minute Maid Park, your local ballclub had just 10 playoff seasons to its name. The future looked brighter though, on a night when another in a string of top prospects debuted for the home club.
The Chicago Cubs have added an important piece to the back end of their bullpen on Monday, acquiring closer Aroldis Chapman from the New York Yankees in exchange for a package including Single-A shortstop prospect Gleyber Torres.
The Cubs got better, the Yankees got a steal, and the Reds have regrets. But that's all sort of missing the larger point, here.
Some kids see their heroes and freak out. This guy didn't even realize he was hanging out with a member of the Oakland A's.
