|by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com|
|(5/7/15) The Astros officially selected outfielder Preston Tucker to their 25-man roster on Thursday, the team announced.
Tucker is filling the spot of George Springer, who went on the 7-day concussion disabled list. Tucker has done well with Triple-A Fresno this season. He holds a .320 batting average with 10 home runs and 32 RBI.
Manager A.J. Hinch said the plan is to play Tucker in left and right field, according to the Houston Chronicle. He won't be playing first base
The Astros also designated infielder Ronald Torreyes for assignment. Torreyes was on the Astros' 40-man roster.
Hinch: Astros' Torreyes has 'earned every chance to get a look'
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(2/28/15) Astros infielder Ronald Torreyes checks in at about 5-foot-6 and 130 pounds, but his success at avoiding strikeouts has manager A.J. Hinch ready to give him a chance at showing what he can do this spring, the Houston Chronicle reports.
"You like to see these guys play," manager A.J. Hinch said. "He can look to our starting lineup at the top or hitting first or second and he’ll see a guy who is pretty successful who is not the biggest guy in the world. I see a unique size for this level, but the way he’s hit and the way he’s performed he’s earned every chance to get a look."
Torreyes was added to the team's 40-man roster in November after hitting .298/.345/.376 with two home runs, 46 RBI and 12 stolen bases in 460 at-bats with Triple-A Oklahoma City in 2014.
"He doesn’t look like a ballplayer because he’s little like me, but he’s a young bull," Astros second baseman Jose Altuve said. "He hits a lot and plays good defense. Last year they put him on the 40-man roster because he has a good chance to help us. There aren’t many players like him so skinny and little in the big leagues, so when you see him for the first time you say, 'You know he has to be good to be here.' Then when you see him hit you realize the organization has a good reason to give him this opportunity."
Torreyes will look for an opportunity to latch on as a utility player this spring. He's capable of seeing work at second base, shortstop and third base as well as in left field and center field.
