The 2015 season was very successful for the Houston Astros, as the team improved their win total by 16 games from the previous season and also made their first playoff appearance since 2005. However, the team came up short in the playoffs, as they were eliminated by the Kansas City Royals in the American League Division Series.

With a group of young talent already starting to impact the big league club, the future is definitely bright in for the Astros, as the club looks to win their first ever World Series title. Like every other Major League team, the Astros definitely have room to improve. With the Astros looking to be serious contenders in 2016, here are some offseason moves that could definitely help them get to the next level.

    I’m not sure Scott Kazmir would leave a hole in the Astros’ rotation. They would still have Keuchel, McCullers, McHugh, Fiers (assuming they don’t move him to the pen), and Feldman (back from injury). They also have Vincent Valesquez, who was pitching fairly well as a starter and was moved to the bullpen mainly because they acquired Kazmir.

    Don’t forget 3rd base. That’s the only loose end, I think, once you address catcher, bullpen, one more elect starter, and 1st base.

    Oh, sorry, you didn’t address 1st. So let’s add 1st and 3rd base … Maybe we can count on A.J. Reed at first, but 3rd needs an upgrade, too, I think.
