Astros have Rule 5 decisions to make


by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com
(3/23/2013) The Houston Astros are close to making their decision on whether to keep Rule 5 picks first baseman Nate Freiman or relief pitcher Josh Fields, reports MLB.com Saturday.

Fields, the No. 1 overall pick in the Rule 5 draft back in December, could make a wide-open bullpen for the Astros after appearing in eight games and allowing seven hits, six walks and three earned runs with four strikeouts.

Freiman, who has hit .278 this spring with a homer and seven RBI, has a tougher shot at making the club with the emergence of Brandon Laird and Brett Wallace's solid springs.

If the players do not make the club out of spring training, the Astros risk losing them to their original teams.
