Making the adjustment this season as the team's full-time first baseman, the Astros' Chris Carter credits first base coach Rich Dauer and bench coach Trey Hillman with assisting him in the transition, per the Houston Chronicle.

“Richie and Trey have been there helping me out since spring training putting the reps in and being at first base every day and working with me,” Carter said. “Their dedication and being out there working with me every day has helped.”

Carter has started 19 of the Astros' 23 games at first base this season while only starting 14 times at first in 2014.

Astros second baseman Jose Altuve went 1 for 4 at the plate in Houston's 11-4 win over the Mariners Saturday.

Altuve did his damage in the fourth inning when he took a Taijuan Walker pitch to deep center field for a three-run bomb, his third of the season.

Altuve's one hit also broke his streak of nine straight multi-hit games, but still boasts a .371 average with 19 RBI in 105 at-bats.

News
Astros pitcher Collin McHugh allowed four runs on six hits, including four home runs, in Houston's 11-4 win over the Mariners Saturday. 

McHugh's biggest rough patch came in the second inning when he allowed three solo shots to Nelson Cruz, Logan Morrison and Mike Zunino. Then in the sixth, Cruz got ahold of another one, his league-leading 13th of the season. But McHugh was able to limit the damage and add three strikeouts to his totals.

"It helps when your team scores 11," McHugh said per the Associated Press. "Our guys did an unbelievable job. Every time they threw a punch, our guys came back and counter-punched and even more. It makes it a little bit easier, breathe a little easier after the guys put you back on top."

McHugh, who moves to 4-0 with the win, moved his ERA to 3.41 and will look to keep rolling Thursday against the Angels.

News
Astros pitcher Dallas Keuchel allowed one run on three hits in eight innings of work in Houston's 7-2 win over the Padres Wednesday.

Keuchel surrendered just one run in the first inning when Matt Kemp doubled to deep center field to drive in Wil Myers, two of the three hits he gave up in the outing. Keuchel settled in after that, recording four strikeouts on 115 pitches in his appearance.

"I just try to continue to make pitches," Keuchel said. "The more pitches you make in the course of a game, the better off you're going to be most of the time, and now I just try to follow that groove.

"We have a lot of potential, and it's nice to see the guys in the lineup just roll it over," Keuchel said. "With that being said, some of the guys haven't even hit their peaks, so I think we have still have room to grow, and it's just fun to be a part of right now, especially with the way some of those guys are running the bases out there and setting us up for some runs."

Keuchel, now 3-0, boasts a minuscule 0.73 ERA in 37 innings of work. The lefty will look to keep rolling Monday against the Rangers.

The Astros have optioned outfielder L.J. Hoes to Triple-A Fresno and recalled pitcher Kevin Chapman from the same club, the team announced Thursday.

The team will use reliever Samuel Deduno as the team's starting pitcher Friday, increasing the need to bring up a bullpen arm. Hoes was 0 for 1 with one run in two appearances while with the team.

News
First baseman Chris Carter is out of the Astros' lineup Saturday against the Mariners with Marwin González getting the start instead.

Carter has started at first base 20 of the Astros' 23 games this season.

With Jed Lowrie recently placed on the disabled list, Jonathan Villar will make his second straight start at shortstop on Saturday.

"Villar played very good shortstop (Friday)," manager A.J. Hinch said to the Houston Chronicle. "I want to keep him in the mix. I wanted Marwin to face Walker. He's had limited time against him, but he's had a little bit of success. We have to keep our guys fresh. One of the downsides of carrying 12 position players is the lack of rest you can get your guys. There's only three bench players, especially with (Evan) Gattis being the primary DH.

"So when I can get Carter off his feet for a day and it matches up well with Villar and Gonzo that’s good."

News
Astros right-hander Samuel Deduno has apparently completed a 360 in his career by going from starter to reliever to starter again. That was confirmed when A.J. Hinch announced that he would get another start Wednesday against visiting Texas.

Deduno performed well in his conversion game from the bullpen Friday night. He held the Mariners to one run on three hits with four strikeouts in four innings. He threw 41 of 61 pitches for strikes. He has a 2.70 ERA on the season.

"I think he competed very well," Hinch told the Houston Chronicle. "I think he had a few first-pitch strikes. I think his fastball was in the zone, which helped his breaking ball ... I probably overreacted a little bit by taking him out of the game so quickly. I think he probably had 10 or 15 pitches left in the tank before it was getting into the danger zone of not being stretched out. I wanted Sammy to leave with a good (feeling)."

Hinch went on to say he expects Deduno to go longer against the Rangers.

News
With Astros shortstop Jed Lowrie on the disabled list and top prospect Carlos Correa off to a torrid start at Double-A, it would make sense for the Astros to call up the talented youngster since he could play regularly with Lowrie months away from returning. 

Yet, despite the calls for Houston to give the 20-year-old Correa a chance to fill in for Lowrie, the Astros are just not ready to make that call.

“Carlos is getting close, but he’s had 70 at-bats above A-ball so we’d like to see more," Astros general manager Jeff Luhnow wrote in an email to the New York Post. "We are going to go with [Marwin Gonzalez/Jonathan Villar] for now, but we will be monitoring the situation closely.”

Correa, who is considered a top-five prospect by MLB.com (No. 3) and Baseball America (No. 4), has a .387/.452/.760/1.212 slash line through 18 games for Corpus Christi. He has one triple, five home runs, 11 doubles and 22 RBI.

Hand - 15-day DL. On Triple-A rehab assignment (Updated - 4/30/15)
News
Astros pitcher Brett Oberholtzer was rocked in his rehab debut with Triple-A Fresno Thursday, allowing seven earned runs on seven hits and one walk in 2 2/3 innings while striking out two.

Oberholtzer, who gave up one home run in the outing, is on the disabled list due to a blister on his throwing hand. He has yet to make a regular-season appearance this season but went 5-13 with a 4.39 ERA and 94:28 K:BB ratio in 143 2/3 innings in 2014.

Right fielder George Springer played hero for the Astros on Friday night, hitting a solo home run in the bottom of the eighth inning, helping to secure the team's 12th win in their last 13 games. 

Springer's home run, his fourth of the season and second in four games, gave the Astros a much-needed insurance run, as the Mariners put up two runs in the top of the ninth. Houston was able to hang on for the 4-3 victory. 

Springer is starting to come alive at the plate recently. Over his last 10 games, he is hitting .244 with three home runs, nine RBI and five stolen bases.
