KEY GAME INFORMATION
HOUSTON: 2017: 101-61, first place, won World Series.
MANAGER: A.J. Hinch (fourth season).
ADDITIONS: RHP Gerrit Cole, RHP Joe Smith, RHP Hector Rondon.
SUBTRACTIONS: DH Carlos Beltran, RHP Luke Gregerson, RHP Joe Musgrove, RHP Mike Fiers, RHP Michael Feliz, INF Colin Moran.
OUTLOOK: With almost everyone back from last year's championship team, the Astros fully expect to contend for another title. They have a right to be confident with Altuve leading a potent lineup that includes Springer, the World Series MVP, and Correa, a young All-Star shortstop coming off his best season. Their rotation is one of the best in baseball, with Cy Young Award winners Keuchel and Verlander leading the group and new acquisition Cole and young star McCullers following that 1-2 punch. Barring debilitating injuries, the Astros should win the AL West and have an excellent chance to repeat as World Series champs.
CHI WHITE SOX: 2017: 67-95, fourth place.
MANAGER: Rick Renteria (second season).
ADDITIONS: RHP Miguel Gonzalez, C Welington Castillo.
SUBTRACTIONS: LHP Derek Holland, RHP Mike Pelfrey, RHP Al Alburquerque, RHP Jake Petricka, C Geovany Soto, OF-2B Alen Hanson, RHP Zach Putnam.
OUTLOOK: For a team with five straight losing seasons and a record that ranked among baseball's worst last year, the White Sox are generating plenty of buzz. That's because they're loaded with promising young players after going all-in on a rebuild prior to last season. The moves have sparked a belief that better days are ahead. Moncada and hard-throwing pitchers Giolito and Lopez showed promise in the majors last season. Right-hander Michael Kopech, outfielder Eloy Jimenez and outfielder Luis Robert are elite prospects on their way in the minors. Garcia, coming off a breakout season, is looking to prove he's not a one-hit wonder. Anderson hopes to bounce back from a trying season in which a close friend was shot to death. Abreu is back after the slugger was viewed as a potential trade candidate this winter. Left-hander Carlos Rodon is expected to be out until at least June following shoulder surgery last September. It's not clear when he'll be ready. Rodon also was sidelined at the start a year ago because of shoulder and biceps problems. The big question is whether he'll ever develop into the pitcher the White Sox envisioned when they drafted him with the No. 3 overall pick in 2014.
PREVIEW
Struggling White Sox face tough test in Keuchel, Astros
 

CHICAGO -- Even before the season began, the Chicago White Sox realized that this year would not be one to focus on wins and losses.

As the White Sox continue to look to the future, however, they have struggled perhaps more than expected. Having the defending World Series champions in town this weekend won't make things any easier.

The White Sox will take their 4-13 record into Saturday's game after the Astros were dominant in a 10-0 victory Friday night that extended Chicago's losing streak to five games and nine of 10.

General manager Rick Hahn is doing his best to keep the big picture in mind. But still, the losing hasn't been easy to deal with.

"Obviously, we haven't been thrilled with the wins and losses," Hahn told the Chicago Sun-Times before Friday's loss. "As an organization, we haven't shied away from the fact that we're two years into a rebuild right now and that there are going to be difficult stretches and that there are going to be growing pains.

"That said, we're all competitors, we're all watching these games and wanting to see the team battle through and come out ahead, and when we don't, it's frustrating."

The White Sox managed only two hits on Friday as Chicago's skid continued. Like Hahn, manager Rick Renteria is attempting to remain positive.

The White Sox will send Lucas Giolito to the mound on Saturday. Giolito (0-2, 5.50 ERA) last pitched on April 12, when he walked five and surrendered three earned runs. Giolito is 0-1 in his lone career start against the Astros. He allowed only two runs in 6 2/3 innings and struck out three.

On Saturday, he will attempt to get the White Sox back on track after another tough loss Friday.

"From the perspective that the win/loss record is indicative or a tell (a story) of who you are or not, do I wish we had more wins in the column? Absolutely," Renteria told reporters Friday. "Can I use that solely as the indicator of who we are? Not necessarily. I mean, look at all the factors that are involved in what goes on 1/8on 3/8 a day-to-day basis. Winning is ultimately the end goal. Make no mistake about it, there are no players on that field, young or old, that want to come to a ballgame and lose. They want to win."

The Astros carry a four-game win streak in Saturday's game and will turn to Dallas Keuchel, who is attempting to get things on track. Keuchel (0-3, 3.52) has dropped two of his past two outings, when he has given up a combined five earned runs and has struck out 12. Keuchel is 2-4 in seven career starts against the White Sox with a 4.12 ERA.

Despite being winless this season, Keuchel believes he is moving closer to regaining the form that earned him a Cy Young award in 2015.

Coming off Friday night's 10-run output, the Astros will look to give Keuchel more to work with than they did when he took the loss despite throwing a complete game in a 2-1 loss to Seattle.

"We just have no margin for error, but our starter keeps giving us plenty of opportunities," manager A.J. Hinch told reporters after Keuchel's last start. "If we keep doing that, we're going to be happy with it."
