West Chester’s Chas McCormick, a Houston Astros postseason hero, is feeling much better as he continues his rehab with the minor league team Corpus Christi Hooks and is ready to get back to work, writes Rey Castillo for the Caller Times.
McCormick played for the Hooks for two seasons when he was added to the Astros‘ Wild Card roster in 2020. Since then, he has earned the role as Houston’s starting center fielder and won a World Series championship after his team defeated his hometown team, the Philadelphia Phillies, in the 2022 Fall Classic.
The player hit 14 home runs last season, which was his career best, and had gotten off to a good start this season before injuring his back in April. This put him on the Astros’ 10-day injured list.
He returned to the Hooks to continue his rehab assignment. He said on Wednesday that he was feeling 100 percent.
“I feel great psychically and I’m just happy I’m able to play again,” said McCormick. “I’m just happy I’m able to get my work in everyday and I’m happy to be in the weight room.”
