Xander Bogaert’s contract demands are too much for the Red Sox
The Houston Astros revealed their lineup for their opening day game against the Los Angeles Angels. Here’s the line-up without Carlos Correa.
The Houston Astros, much like the rest of the league, are aiming for a fresh start in 2022. Losing to the Atlanta Braves in the World Series in six games, Houston will have its first season without Carlos Correa on the roster. Correa signed with the Minnesota Twins.
Houston will begin their 2022 season on the road when they take on the Los Angeles Angels at Angel Stadium. Here’s a look at their starting line-up ahead of the first game of the campaign.
Lineup Astros Opening Day vs. Angels
Replacing Correa as the starting shortstop is Jeremy Pena, the team’s No. 1 in the pipeline. Pena had an impressive spring with the team raking in the batter’s box.
Back to the order, second baseman Jose Altuve will lead things, followed by hitter-designate Michael Brantley and third baseman Alex Bregman. Jordan Alvarez will clean up and play in left field.
Starting for Houston is Framber Valdez, who comes off a 2021 season in which he had an 11-6 record, a 3.14 ERA, a 1,248 WHIP and 124 strikeouts over 134.2 innings.
