Astros cut a handful of top prospects from camp
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/20/14) The Astros made a handful of roster moves Thursday, mostly taking their top prospects off the spring roster. George Springer, Mike Foltynewicz, Jon Singleton, Delino DeShields, Carlos Correa and Mark Appel were all sent down to the minors Thursday.
Carlos Correa, Mark Appel headline Astros' spring invitees
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(1/14/14) The Astros invited 20 non-roster minor-leaguers to spring training Tuesday, including infielder Carlos Correa and pitcher Mark Appel, the team announced.

The team's other invitees include pitchers Jake Buchanan, Rhiner Cruz, Jorge De Leon, Bobby Doran, Mike Foltynewicz, Jason Stoffel and Nick Tropeano; catchers Rene Garcia, Tyler Heineman and Carlos Perez; infielders Japhet Amador, Jonathan Meyer and Ronald Torreyes; and outfielders Delino DeShields, Leo Heras, J.D. Martinez, George Springer and Preston Tucker.

Correa, 19, was the No. 1 overall pick in the 2012 amateur draft. He hit .320/.405/.467 with nine home runs, 86 RBI and 10 stolen bases in 450 at-bats with Class A Quad Cities last season.

Appel, 22, was the No. 1 overall pick in the 2013 amateur draft. He went 3-1 with a 3.79 ERA, 1.18 WHIP and 33:9 K:BB ratio in 38 innings over 10 starts between low Class A Tri-City and Class A Quad Cities.

Astros' minor-league pitcher of the year promoted to Double-A
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(5/2/13) The Astros announced Thursday pitching prospect Mike Foltynewicz was promoted from Class A Lancaster to Double-A Corpus Christi. He was 1-0 with a 3.81 ERA and 1.73 WHIP in seven outings (five starts) for Lancaster.

Foltynewicz struck out 29, while allowing four home runs and 14 walks in 26 innings in the hitter-friendly California League. However, he managed a 1.71 ERA in his last five appearances. Foltynewicz was the Astros' minor-league pitcher of the year in 2012.

Mike Foltynewicz being tested in California League
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/10/13) Astros starting pitcher prospect Mike Foltynewicz has struggled with the unique climate conditions that come with pitching in the California League (Class A). Foltynewicz, who is considered the team's fifth-best prospect by Baseball America, has posted a 16.20 ERA and .522 opponents' batting average through two starts.

The Astros didn't want the right-hander to miss the Lancaster "experience," according to the Houston Chronicle.

"They sent me out here,'' Foltynewicz said. "It wasn't my choice. But I know they just want me to learn to pitch better. In 2011 and part of 2012, I'd just go out and throw the ball through a brick wall. Controlling my fastball was my weak point. I've gotten a lot better at it, but I can still improve things. It teaches you to pitch out here."

Despite his early struggles, Lancaster manager Rodney Linares feels Foltynewicz has a high ceiling.

"Folty has all the stuff to be a No. 1 in the big leagues," Linares said. "He's got the fastball, the breaking ball, the changeup. He's also got that No. 1 starter attitude. The conditions here will torment you, but he won't let them get to him. He doesn't lack for confidence."

Mike Foltynewicz Ks seven Cubs
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(3/30/13) Astros prospect Mike Foltynewicz turned in a solid performance against the Cubs at the Alamodome Saturday.

Foltynewicz, who entered the game in the fourth inning, struck out seven while allowing a hit in four innings of a 6-3 victory. He has not allowed a run in five innings this spring. The 21-year-old is expected to start the season at Class A Lancaster.
