Below is a graph of where the Astros have ranked over the course of the season.

And here is what Power Rankers are saying about the Astros this week:

ESPN

Astros ranked 15th - "Maybe Carlos Correa isn't the MVP candidate, as many picked back in March, but he's on pace for 24 home runs, 82 walks and 112 RBIs, and he ranks 11th in the majors in WAR among position players."

Sports Illustrated

Astros ranked 15th - In Jonah Keri’s weekly power rankings he selects four teams to write about. Although your team was not chosen this week, Jonah’s work is well worth the read.

USA Today

Astros ranked 14th - "Yulieski Gurriel the latest first-year player club hopes can provide a spark."

Bleacher Report

Astros ranked 10th - "The Houston Astros bounced back from dropping a two-game series to the St. Louis Cardinals to take three of four from the Baltimore Orioles, leaving them 3.5 games back with three teams to pass for the second AL wild-card spot.

After a rocky start to his big league career, Alex Bregman has caught fire with a .328/.370/.567 line over his last 15 games that includes seven doubles, three home runs and 13 RBI.

The Astros also promoted Cuban star Yulieski Gurriel over the weekend, a little over a month after signing him to a five-year, $47.5 million deal.

He was 1-for-2 with a walk in his debut on Sunday and could serve as the team's primary designated hitter the rest of the way with the potential to make a huge impact."

Reddit

Astros ranked 14th - "Gurriel looked good last night. According to Astros fans, this might be the only good move Lunhow has ever made."
