During a batting practice session Friday, Astros manager A.J. Hinch noticed he could assist with some fundamental work behind the plate with catcher Max Stassi

With Stassi catching pitcher Chad Qualls, Hinch advised him to turn his shoulder on certain pitches, according to the Houston Chronicle

“There’s some angles you try to create both for the visual for the pitcher and also for the benefit of the umpire,” he said. “With all the talk of the framing stuff, we want to get the most strikes out of our pitchers. There’s certainly techniques to pay attention to even in side sessions and live BPs.”

For Stassi, it appears he was happy with the advice from Hinch, a former major-league catcher. 

“He’s caught in the big leagues," Stassi said. "He’s been there and done that. He was just giving me a few tips. It’s just framing and the positioning of your body too. It’s just real simple, a better presentation of the pitch for your pitcher and the umpire.

News
Astros first baseman Jon Singleton is ready to put the 2014 season in his rear view mirror. Singleton hit a woeful .168 with 13 home runs and 44 RBI in 310 plate appearances in 2014.

"To be honest, I believe the only competition I have is myself," Singleton said. "I feel like I'm the only person who can prevent myself from reaching the potential I need to reach or getting out of the game what I need to get out, but if I prepare and I work and I leave it all out there, there's nothing really else to worry about."

Manager A.J. Hinch thinks Singleton is a threat to hit 30 home runs this year.

"He's done what he needs to do this offseason to come in and improve off of, not only a tremendous Minor League career, but his start to the Major League career last year, which was mixed," general manager Jeff Luhnow said. "My money's on Jon Singleton to do the things he needs to do to make this club."

News
The Astros are leaning toward pitcher Collin McHugh as their starter for the opening of spring training, reports The Houston Chronicle.

"It's trending toward Collin McHugh starting that first game and getting our pitching lined up," Astros manager A.J. Hinch said. "Everybody should pitch in the next four or five games, so [pitching coach Brent Strom] and I are putting that list together. He's got another live BP, so that's why I hesitate to put it in pen. But right now we're planning on seeing him early."

However, Hinch indicated the starter for Opening Day has not been determined.

"Truthfully, I mean, that and even who throws game one of the regular season — game one of the regular season's a little more kind of like a nod to more what you did in the past year, usually," he said. "But, yeah, all five of us are going to get a chance somewhere through the rotation. It's just where we fall."

News
Astros pitcher Dallas Keuchel told reporters he was pleased with how he felt after his first live batting practice session, the Houston Chronicle reports. The left-hander threw 30 pitches and faced some of Houston's top prospects, including shortstop Carlos Correa.

"I felt good," Keuchel said. "I was pretty much trying to throw as many strikes and fill up the zone as possible. I was able to establish both corners. I was just trying to let the movement take shape and see where I was at in my first time ramping it up a little bit more than bullpens.

"You get your adrenaline flowing when you see a batter up there and your competitive juices start flowing," Keuchel said. "I was very happy with the way I was able to command the ball and some of the shape that was able to take place."

Keuchel led the club in victories in 2014, posting a 12-9 record with 2.93 ERA.

News
Astros pitcher Kevin Chapman is figuring out quickly the need for a third pitch in his arsenal. He posted a 2-0 record with a 4.64 ERA in 21 1/3 innings pitched in 2014. 

"[The changeup is] something I sort of messed with last year when I was sent down and I was in Triple-A," Chapman said. "I thought while I was there I'd try to throw it and get another pitch. When I came back up, I didn't use it that much, but when I did, it was effective. That's something I really wanted to explore and see what it's got for me."

He wants to be able to keep hitters on their toes for this season.

"Last year, it wasn't like key situations or a full count or something like that, but any time I had an opportunity to use it in a situation that's not vital to one pitch, I used it and I was getting good results and getting it for strikes, and when guys were putting it in play, it was weak contact," he said.

Astros catcher Jason Castro was behind the plate while Brett Oberholtzer and Samuel Deduno threw live batting practice Friday and liked what he saw from both pitchers, per the Houston Chronicle

“Obie looked good,” Castro said. “He had some good movement today, some late life on his sinker. He’s working on throwing changeups to lefties and righties, so it will be good for him. His curveball’s got some good bite on it too. For him at this point it’s just about finding that command because the movement is definitely there.

“Deduno was good. He’s the kind of guy that’s got unbelievable movement. He impressed me with his changeup actually today. I think that was a pitch that has probably improved the most since what I remember from him last year. Both of those guys look pretty good.”

Injuries
Hip - Questionable for start of season (Updated - 2/24/15)
News
Astros pitcher Brad Peacock threw 30 pitches in his third bullpen session of the spring Saturday and reported no pain in his hip, the Houston Chronicle reports.

"No pain," Peacock said. "I felt all right. My arm felt good. I was a little wild, but that’s normal. It was only my third bullpen, but no pain in the hip. I’ll take it."

Peacock is working his way back from offseason hip surgery. He'll take two days off and throw another bullpen Tuesday, when he hopes to increase his session to 35 pitches. If he continues to progrees, he hopes to throw his first live batting practice March 11.

News
Astros starting pitcher Roberto Hernandez, who is expected to compete for a spot in the rotation, has still not arrived for spring training due to visa issues.

While he is throwing bullpen sessions in the Dominican Republic, manager A.J. Hinch said Friday that Hernandez's absence could cost him a chance to earn a spot in the rotation.

"It's going to depend upon him showing up ready to go," Hinch said, per MLB.com. "He is a veteran guy, so I don't sense that he's going to come in unprepared. But once games start, we're starting to get a little bit behind."
