I see the 2020 rotation as
Verlander
Greinke
McCullers
Sanchez
Urquidy/Valdez/James/FA

Sanchez is out until late summer, minimum.

I’d keep my eye on Zach Wheeler.

I believe there ought to be a constitutional amendment outlawing AstroTurf and the designated hitter. I believe in the sweet spot, soft-core pornography, opening your presents Christmas morning rather than Christmas Eve and I believe in long, slow, deep, torture of Bud Selig.

Sanchez may not pitch again until 2021.

Yes. His surgery was on sept 16th and the full recovery timeline is 12-14 months. The optimistic timeframe puts him back in play the last week of the season. Which would make no sense. I can’t imagine how tendering him an offer is logical unless they ink home to a multi-year deal.

That said, the Astros saw something in him of some immediate or future value that may have been more than a rental. Maybe multi-year makes sense.
Another trenchant comment by a jealous lesser intellect.

Multi-year makes sense, something like Pineda’s deal in Minnesota but with smaller numbers. It’d have to be a non-tender & re-sign. Sanchez should be open to it—what better place to turn himself around?

A hatchet job by Drellich? I'm shocked.

I do not know him from Adam. His piece was mean. I do know he got fired from a Res Sox gig.
Often wrong, but never in doubt.

He had that terrific season a few years ago.  The Astros obviously didn't know the injury existed prior to the deal for him.  I don't think we'll know how the Astros feel about him long term until after the contract situation is done.
Goin' for a bus ride.

Don't clubs get to see medicals on guys before consummating a deal? Not being a wise-guy, I'm just not really sure. I thought that was part of the process?

Of course they do. He was healthy enough to fire 6 no hit innings in his first start with the Astros.

Any medical report they likely were to have received wouldn't have had the eventual diagnosis. They initially thought he had a problem with his pectoral muscle. Turns out after a more thorough examination he had a torn capsule in his right shoulder.
Everyone's talking, few of them know
The rest are pretending, they put on a show
And if there's a message I guess this is it
Truth isn't easy, the easy part's shit

Shoulder issues are a bitch to diagnose pre-explosion.

Evan Drellich penned a big article for The Athletic in the wake of the Taubman trainwreck that raised criticisms (some deserved, some not) of the "Astros culture." 

Buried in the article, he telegraphs that at least two front-office employees would be leaving the Astros this offseason, in addition to Taubman, for reasons that are not currently known.  Ocampo, as a special assistant to the GM, would certainly count as one.  If Drellich is right, we can expect at least one more.

Per Kaplan, Eve Rosenbaum, Manager of International Scouting , is the other.
