It is that time again, the Astros get their turn on the center stage of MLB Network. MLBN had its annual 30 Clubs in 30 Days tour make a stop in West Palm Beatch earlier this week.

Astros manager A.J. Hinch opened up about the team’s pitching rotation:

“The starting pitchers are the tone-setters of the day. When we’re right, we’re rolling out a good starting pitcher every night. We haven’t had a full rotation intact for over a year now. Dallas [Keuchel] sets the tone at the top. The Cy Young version of him is excellent. Last year he battled through a lot of different things, mostly the execution, a little bit of fatigue and injury. When he’s right, we’re right. …Our rotation needs to set the tone, hand the ball to a really effective bullpen. Keeping them intact as a rotation and having them work as a functional unit is very key.”

Dallas Keuchel talked about his struggles in 2016 and how he has adjusted:
