12/20/2018 Joe Smith, Hou, P
The Astros announced Smith has undergone surgery for a ruptured left Achilles tendon and is expected to be sidelined from 6-8 months.

Analysis: The veteran reliever could be out through next year's All-Star break. Smith isn't a major part of the Astros' bullpen, as he appeared in just one of the team's eight playoff games last season, but remained effective by compiling a 5-1 record with a 3.74 ERA and 1.01 WHIP in 56 regular-season appearances in 2018.
