In his weekly spot with SportsTalk 790, Astros manager Dusty Baker announced that Michael Brantley had been activated from the 10-day injury list. Brantley missed more than two weeks with tightness in his hamstring.

The Astros are flushed with talent at the moment in their lineup, so cracking the top of their lineup will take a little bit of time even for Brantley despite his .305/.346/.455 slash line in 41 games.
Houston is in Boston to take on the Red Sox in a three-game series. They won three out of four games against Boston when they faced them at home last week. Framber Valdez is expected to start against Martin Perez, who will take his for the Red Sox.
Boston is as high as a -125 favorite, and 54% of the tickets are currently backing them with 65% of the money.
