Can Framber Valdez make the most of his reprieve as a member of the starting rotation? Let’s hope so. Join the discussion.

MLB: Houston Astros at Texas Rangers Jerome Miron-USA TODAY Sports

The Astros took a 7-4 win last night despite the starter going only 3.2 innings while surrendering five walks, and the bullpen surrendering three home runs. A three run homer by George Springer was the margin of victory for the Stros.

Today Framber Valdez (4-6, 5.14 ERA) tries to lock down the 5th starter role while facing Clay Buchholz (0-2, 5.87 ERA).

Here is today’s lineup and media access information.
