Astros GM James Click said Wednesday that Jake Odorizzi (forearm) is likely to make a minor league rehab start or two. "Everything structurally is great, he feels great, it's just a question of building back up," Click told SportsTalk790 in Houston. The rehab stint could serve as a reset of sorts for Odorizzi, who allowed nine earned runs in eight innings (three starts) for the Astros before landing on the IL in late April with right forearm tightness.

New York Yankees DFS SPIN

Giancarlo Stanton went 3-for-4 with a homer, a double, four RBI and a walk Wednesday in the Yankees' 6-3 defeat of the Astros. That's 17 hits in six games for a guy who, even in his best seasons, has never topped a .290 batting average. He's at .314 currently. He has five homers and four doubles during his current 11-game hitting streak. He began that stretch with a .571 OPS through 15 games, but he's all of the way up to .953 now.
