The Houston Astros were scheduled to take on the Texas Rangers for three games starting Tuesday at Minute Maid Park. These games are on hold right now with Houston dealing what might be the worst hurricane disaster in the past 100 years.

The Astros have traveled to Dallas to wait out Tropical Storm Harvey. But there has been no determination made about if the Astros will reschedule or swap home and home series with the Rangers.

Astros manager A.J. Hinch said:

"Really, I think everything is up in the air. We might get to Houston sometime in the next couple of days and play. We might not. I don't know what's possible. The commissioner's going to have to handle all of this in communication with the two teams. Baseball is secondary right now. Our schedule, our flight times, where we're going to be, the buses, all of that stuff is meaningless compared to what everybody is suffering through."

The other aspect of this series is the fact that the Dallas/Arlington area is also dealing with rain. It may mean the game will place outside of Texas if not rescheduled.
