The Astros are into the “there are no real starters available” in their starting rotation. Can they weather the storm today and tomorrow? Join the discussion.

MLB: Texas Rangers at Houston Astros Troy Taormina-USA TODAY Sports

It’s Jose Urquidy up today to face Shin-Soo Choo, Danny Santana, Elvis Andrus, Joey Gallo, Hunter Pence et al. I think at least one of the two teams will score a lot of runs tonight, and if the Astros hope to win, there better be two high scoring teams.

But maybe in his second big league appearance, Urquidy can improve on his 10.80 ERA.

Going for the Rangers is Ariel Jurado, 5-5, with a 4.63 ERA.

In case you hadn’t heard, Urquidy is replacing Tyler White on the 25 man roster. White was DFA’ed last night.

Here is the Astros lineup and media access information.
