Astros add Roberto Hernandez, Joe Thatcher to roster

by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(4/4/15) The Astros have added pitchers Roberto Hernandez and Joe Thatcher to the Opening Day roster and designated pitcher Alex White for assignment, the team announced Saturday.

Hernandez is set to open the season as the team's No. 5 starter in the rotation while Thatcher is likely to come out of the bullpen after signing a minor-league deal in February.

Hernandez posted a 3.71 ERA with five strikeouts and seven walks in five appearances while Thatcher posted a 1.13 ERA with six strikeouts in nine appearances.

White struggled in his three appearances this spring, posting a 15.75 ERA with no strikeouts and six walks.

Report: Astros add Joe Thatcher to MLB roster

by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(3/30/15) The Astros are adding LHP Joe Thatcher to the Opening Day roster, according to a report by Fox Sports' Ken Rosenthal, citing a source.

Thatcher signed a minor league deal with the team on February 13 and was invited to Major League camp as a non-roster player. 

Thatcher had a 1.35 ERA in seven games with five strikeouts in six and two thirds innings. 

Tony Sipp lands role in Astros bullpen, last spot still open

by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(3/14/15) Astros manager A.J. Hinch announced that LHP Tony Sipp had earned a spot in the bullpen.

"Sipp's on the team," Hinch told MLB.com's Brian McTaggart

There are still three pitchers battling for the final spot in the Astros pen: Kevin Chapman, Joe Thatcher and Darin Downs

Thatcher is the most experienced, but he's not on the team's 40-man roster. Still, he appears to be the favorite. 

"Thatch has thrown well and has some experience," Hinch said. "Chapman is still in the mix."

Hinch: Astros 'likely' to use seven-man bullpen in 2015

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(3/3/15) Astros manager A.J. Hinch indicated that the team is likely to use a seven-man bullpen this season, leaving two spots open for competition this spring, the Houston Chronicle reports.

"Likely," Hinch said of a seven-man bullpen. "There’s always a chance that (changes) depending on how the schedule plays out, and there’s always a debate on how many pitchers to carry during interleague. Now interleague is pretty much year round, so I mean, in a perfect world with our roster, it’s likely to carry a seven-man ‘pen. If we feel like we need an extra pitcher or injury happens, there’s different ways to shape our roster, then we will, but likely 12."

The two open spots will likely be filled by a left-handed pitcher and a long reliever. The competition for the second lefty in the pen likely comes down to Kevin Chapman and nonroster invitees Joe Thatcher and Darin Downs. The long relief role has a broader list of candidates, including Alex White and Asher Wojciechowski, who will prepare both as starters and relievers.

"We’re going to stretch out a lot of our guys," Hinch said. "Some of them are because they’re competing in that fifth starter spot, some of them are bullpen guys. Will Harris is going to throw multiple innings. Obviously (Sam) Deduno has been a starter in the past, he’s in a competition for the fifth man spot. Wojo, White, those guys are going to need to, going to plan for the season on both fronts, whether it’s a starter or reliever. But we’re preaching multiple innings. It’s important if you have a seven-man bullpen that you have a couple of guys that can get four, five, six outs if needed and be a bridge to the rest of the bullpen."

Astros, Joe Thatcher agree to minor-league deal

by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(2/13/15) The Astros have signed pitcher Joe Thatcher to a minor-league contract, the team announced Friday.

Thatcher, who pitched in the majors last season for the Diamondbacks and Angels, went 2-1 in 2014 with a 3.86 ERA in 30 1/3 innings pitched and 27 strikeouts. The deal will reportedly pay Thatcher $1 million if he makes it to the majors with an additional $1.3 million in incentives. He can also opt out of the contract five days before opening day, according to Chris Cotillo of SBNation.com.
