News
Astros manager A.J. Hinch indicated Thursday that the final spot in the rotation is down between Asher Wojciechowski and Roberto Hernandez, according to the Houston Chronicle

"I'm not really making declarations at this point," Hinch said, per MLB.com. "Coming into next week, we'd like to have a clearer picture, but today, on Thursday, there's still many [bullpen] combos we could go with."

Wojciechowski owns a 1.08 ERA through five spring outings (two starts). He has 13 strikeouts in 16 2/3 innings. Hernandez has 4.50 ERA, a 1.42 WHIP and 4:5 K:BB ratio over 12 innings of work this spring.

Astros manager A.J. Hinch said Tuesday is getting closer to announcing bullpen roles, according to the Houston Chronicle.

“Once we get through that (back-to-back appearance) cycle of the work, we'll address roles," he said.

Hinch was referring to three candidates -- Luke Gregerson, Pat Neshek and Chad Qualls -- who are up for the closer's role. Gregerson pitched on consecutive days Monday and Tuesday, Neshek is pitching Tuesday and Wednesday, and Qualls will also pitch on back-to-back days this week.

News
Astros manager A.J. Hinch indicated Wednesday that first baseman Jon Singleton is making a good case to break camp on the team's 25-man roster, MLB.com reports.

"He's a very, very dangerous hitter, and he knows it, the other teams know it," he said. "He got off to a really hot start in the spring and continues to grind towards the roster spot that's becoming more and more debatable."

The team has the option of going with Chris Carter or Evan Gattis at first base if Singleton doesn't make the team, but he remains unworried about the potential roster crunch.

"I'm still out here playing ball and leaving it all on the field," he said. "I'm just trying to compete."

Singleton has hit .244/.295/.390 while striking out 14 times in 41 at-bats this spring.

Astros starting pitcher Collin McHugh racked up seven strikeouts in five innings during Tuesday's spring game against the Mets. He allowed three runs (two earned) on two hits and one walk.

McHugh gave up a two-run homer to David Wright in the third inning. He now has 4.96 ERA and 19 strikeouts in 16 1/3 innings.

"I wanted to get the pitch count up," McHugh said to MLB.com. "We got up over 75 pitches, which is good. I probably have one more start -- maybe one of the exhibition games [in Houston] -- to get back up to that 100 plateau by the time the season starts. Getting five innings under my belt, getting through a lineup 2 1/2 times were all things I haven't done yet this spring. It's a good progression so far."

Injuries
Quadriceps - Out until at least late March (Updated - 3/25/15)
News
Though he told reporters that his sprained ankle has gotten better, Astros outfielder Jonathan Villar was held out of workouts on Thursday as a precaution, according to MLB.com. Meanwhile, Robbie Grossman (quadriceps contusion) could return to action as early as Friday.

Both outfielders were involved in an outfield collision on Wednesday. Villar took the legs out from under Grossman while making a sliding catch in the fourth inning against the Phillies. 

Houston will face the Marlins on Friday.

News
It appears the competition for the final spot in the Astros' rotation is down to Asher Wojciechowski and Roberto Hernandez after Samuel Deduno pitched in relief Wednesday against the Phillies. It seems the Astros are lining Deduno up for a role as a sixth starter/long reliever.

“We wanted to simulate more of a long reliever role for him,” manager A.J. Hinch said of Deduno's outing Wednesday, per the Houston Chronicle. “We know we can stretch him out and he can start. He can throw a lot of pitches. He’s got a resilient arm, but he’ll have an outing here where he’ll go pitch, (have a) couple days off, pitch.”

Astros starting pitcher Scott Feldman had another rough outing during Monday's spring game against the Braves. Feldman (0-1) allowed five runs on seven hits and two walks in three innings, while recording no strikeouts in 14-10 loss.

Feldman has allowed eight runs in his last two starts (six innings). He has a 10.13 ERA through three spring starts.

“Ugh. I was like, felt like I never pitched before,” Feldman said, per the Houston Chronicle. “It was the weirdest feeling. … You don’t want to have bad body language. I could feel myself out there just like, I don’t know. I felt like my head was going to explode. I had no idea where I was throwing the ball. It was really an annoying game.”

News
Astros manager A.J. Hinch said over the weekend he was impressed with catcher Jason Castro, who has put together a strong spring at the plate coming off a down season in 2014. On Monday, it was Castro's turn to talk about his own performance and he seems just as pleased with his progress.

He is batting .280 (7 for 25) with two home runs, three doubles and five RBI in 10 games. One of those home runs came off Nationals starting pitcher Max Scherzer on Friday.

“Very happy with some of the adjustments that I was trying to make this offseason,” Castro said, per the Houston Chronicle. “At this point I’ve done the things that I’ve kind of wanted to do coming into spring training. Just to kind of check those boxes before this season starts.

“I feel like I’m at the point now where I’m pretty quiet (with my mechanics). I get into position to where I basically read the pitch and then just react. And that’s something I couldn’t really do last year. I had to, in order for me to kind of compensate for some kind of inefficiencies and mechanics in my swing, I had to look for a certain pitch in order to get to it. So it kind of threw me off on other stuff. I’m pretty happy with that aspect of it: being able to just read pitches, not having to cheat, being able to lay off stuff that I don’t want to swing at.”

News
Astros general manager Jeff Luhnow said Thursday that Evan Gattis will mostly play left field and serve as the team's designated hitter but could see some work at catcher as well, MLB.com reports.

"He will catch some, probably later in season," Luhnow said.

Gattis will slot in as the team's third catcher in addition to his regular role after coming to the team from the Braves this past offseason. He's 8 for 20 with one home run and two walks this spring.

Groin - Out until at least late March (Updated - 3/23/15)

Astros reliever Josh Fields told reporters that his groin strain has calmed down after he's been evaluated every day, per the Houston Chronicle.

"I don't think it'll be too long before I'm off the mound again," Fields said.

Fields has been sidelined since Monday -- his only appearance of the spring -- with a groin issue. He indicated that he remains uncertain if he'll be ready by Opening Day.

"I don't know. I don't think we've gotten there yet. I'm hoping, hopeful," Fields said.

News
Astros outfielder Colby Rasmus is used to seeing the ball from the center. This spring, Rasmus is moving back over to left field, where he last played six seasons ago. He still feels right in the position, reports MLB.com.

"I feel all right out there," Rasmus said. "I feel pretty comfortable. I'm kind of trying to take it easy and not try to, I guess, overdo it. I guess I'm playing a little cautious. It's still early, and I don't want to overdo it by trying to make things happen that aren't there. I'm trying to kind of learn it and take it slow, but I feel good so far."

Manager A.J. Hinch said he thinks Rasmus will see some time in center, but Jake Marisnick will be the primary starter.

"If that's what A.J. thinks will help us win, I'm fine with moving back and forth on days, or whatever he wants to do matchup-wise," Rasmus said. "I don't have a problem with it. When I get out there, I'm just going to play hard. We all make mistakes. My goal is if I do make mistakes, not dwell on it and get back out there and make the next one."

News
Astros outfielder George Springer was a pretty effective basestealer in the minors, totaling 87 stolen bases in 287 games. He had at least 32 stolen bases in 2012 and 2013.

Unfortunately, as a rookie in 2014, Springer didn't get to show off his speed on the basepaths. While he was effective when he did steal a base, he had just five on seven attempts.

It appears, however, the Astros want Springer to be more aggressive on the basepaths in 2015, per the Houston Chronicle

"I think he can run a little bit more than he has in his first year in the big leagues," manager A.J. Hinch said. "I think his history will show that he can steal a few bases and be a good baserunner."
