2017 MLB Predictions: From Division/Wild Card Winners to World Series Champion

AL West - Houston Astros

The Astros have arguably the brightest future of any franchise. It’s a squad littered with young, big-time talents (Carlos Correa, George Springer, Alex Bregman) to go along with veterans in Brian McCann, Carlos Beltran, and Josh Reddick. Oh yeah… there’s also that Jose Altuve guy (who’s pretty good if you’ve never seen him play). The lineup also features eight hitters projected to hit more than 10 home runs. With a very deep farm system, expect the Astros to target a front-line starting pitcher as the trade deadline creeps up in July.
