With spring training set to start in February, each team is filled with hope for a run at a World Series title and fresh faces are ready to make a name for themselves in the majors. After 90 wins and another deep playoff run in 2023, the Houston Astros will look to continue their sustained success in 2024.
Here are three rising stars who will look to make an impact for the Astros in 2024.
Chas McCormick, outfield
2023 MLB stats: .273/.353/.489, 22 home runs, 70 RBI and 19 stolen bases in 115 games played
In his third season with the Astros, McCormick had a breakout season in 2023 and is primed to produce even more in 2024.
After a slow start to the season, McCormick started to pick things up in June before exploding in July slashing .351/.440/.688 with 12 extra-base hits and 23 RBI in 22 games.
Setting career highs in nearly all batting categories, the 28-year-old outfielder showed pop in his bat with 41 extra-base hits after having only 54 in his first two seasons.
