Houston Chronicle Daniel Lnerner The club is hoping the holiday season will help the series compete with the Yankees, after a stellar break.

After Al-Kokob’s break, the Astros are in a bit of a frenzy as they start with a double-header with Yankees as part of a stretch that will see them play 19 games in 18 days. By now going to IL, he will miss the games with A and the Angels, but he may be ready to go where the Yankees, sailors, A, Red Sox and Guardians are playing.
