Astros viewed as favorites to win AL West
Tue, May 12th 12:17pm EDT
The Astros certainly had a tumultuous offseason, but it wasn't enough to knock them out of the projected top spot in the AL West. They are followed in the projected standings by the A's (+325), Angels (+700), Rangers (+1600), and Mariners (+10000). The Astros lost ace Gerrit Cole to free agency, along with their manager and GM, and they will be one of the most-watched teams this season to see how they can respond following the rulings handed down from MLB.
