Still in the midst of the wild card race in the American League, the Houston Astros are looking to add a high-upside arm to the rotation. The team is reportedly set to promote top prospect David Paulino from Triple-A Fresno. 

The 22-year-old Dominican was pitching to a 5-4 record with a 2.00 ERA and nearly 11 strikeouts per nine innings in 20 appearances (15) starts between Double-A and Triple-A. It's possible he might replace the injured Dallas Keuchel in the rotation.
