Delino DeShields begins extended spring training


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(4/30/2014) Extended spring training has begun in Florida for Astros prospect Delino DeShields , who sustained a sinus fracture with Double-A Corpus Christi when he was hit in the face by a pitch on April 18.

The team is hopeful DeShields can return when it comes back from a road trip.


Delino DeShields could be back in 10 days


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(4/25/2014) Astros outfielder Delino DeShields has made a quick recovery from a sinus fracture, and could be back in the Double-A Corpus Christi lineup within two weeks.

"DeShields is progressing, and he might be in lineup in the next 10 days," general manager Jeff Luhnow told MLB.com Friday. "I think that's a possibility. We need to be cautious any time someone gets hit in the head, so we're going through concussion protocol with him."


Delino DeShields to begin limited baseball activities


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/22/2014) Astros infield prospect Delino DeShields was slated to begin limited baseball activities Tuesday after seeing a specialist Monday, the Houston Chronicle reports.

DeShields was hit in the face with a pitch last week, suffering a fractured cheekbone. "With a non displaced fracture, sometimes those things can heal up pretty quickly," general manager Jeff Luhnow said. "We’ll wait and see. He’s going to start some activities as tolerated."

DeShields may be able to expedite his return with the help of a protective mask, though the team isn't committed to going that route with the prospect.

Carlos Correa, Mark Appel headline Astros' spring invitees


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(1/14/2014) The Astros invited 20 non-roster minor-leaguers to spring training Tuesday, including infielder Carlos Correa and pitcher Mark Appel, the team announced.

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.

DeShields earns high praise


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/10/2013) The Astros endured their first cuts of the spring Sunday and a few of their top prospects were among the names reassigned to minor-league camp. Players reassigned Sunday were Delino DeShields Jr., Jake Goebbert, Marc Krauss, George Springer, Chris Wallace, Rudy Owens and Sam Demel. Astros manager Bo Porter came away impressed with DeShields. “Delino did a great job," Porter said, per MLB.com. "Every situation we put him in, we gave him an opportunity to use his skill sets and he used him to the best of his ability and helped us win some ballgames. Like we told him, go down there and continue to work on the things you do well and allow your speed to impact the game. He did a tremendous job when he was here and we expect him to have a tremendous year.”
