Five pitchers still vying for final spot in Astros' rotation
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Astros manager A.J. Hinch indicated Thursday the final spot in the rotation remains up for grabs, per the Houston Chronicle. The candidates vying for the fifth spot in the rotation are Samuel Deduno, Asher Wojciechowski, Roberto Hernandez, Dan Straily and Alex White.

“It’s the sum of the entire spring that we pay attention to, but you always want to leave a good impression in the minds of the decision makers and coaches and your teachers,” Hinch said. “They’re always big. And these guys that are pitching for a spot on the team or playing for a spot on this team as a position player, there’s a little bit of stress and pressure that goes into it. But that’s a good thing.”

Deduno and Wojciechowski will be on the mound Friday against the Nationals. The duo have pitched particularly well this spring, as Deduno has allowed one run in eight innings and Wojciechowski hasn't allowed a run in nine innings.

“It’s a point of emphasis for Sammy to get ahead and utilize all of his weapons,” Hinch said. “For Wojo to get ahead and for him to be able to expand on purpose is a great point of emphasis for him. Wojo’s changeup and Deduno’s fastball are pitches that we’re paying close attention to just because the effectiveness that they have on the hitters."

Hinch: Astros 'likely' to use seven-man bullpen in 2015
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Astros manager A.J. Hinch indicated that the team is likely to use a seven-man bullpen this season, leaving two spots open for competition this spring, the Houston Chronicle reports.

"Likely," Hinch said of a seven-man bullpen. "There’s always a chance that (changes) depending on how the schedule plays out, and there’s always a debate on how many pitchers to carry during interleague. Now interleague is pretty much year round, so I mean, in a perfect world with our roster, it’s likely to carry a seven-man ‘pen. If we feel like we need an extra pitcher or injury happens, there’s different ways to shape our roster, then we will, but likely 12."

The two open spots will likely be filled by a left-handed pitcher and a long reliever. The competition for the second lefty in the pen likely comes down to Kevin Chapman and nonroster invitees Joe Thatcher and Darin Downs. The long relief role has a broader list of candidates, including Alex White and Asher Wojciechowski, who will prepare both as starters and relievers.

"We’re going to stretch out a lot of our guys," Hinch said. "Some of them are because they’re competing in that fifth starter spot, some of them are bullpen guys. Will Harris is going to throw multiple innings. Obviously (Sam) Deduno has been a starter in the past, he’s in a competition for the fifth man spot. Wojo, White, those guys are going to need to, going to plan for the season on both fronts, whether it’s a starter or reliever. But we’re preaching multiple innings. It’s important if you have a seven-man bullpen that you have a couple of guys that can get four, five, six outs if needed and be a bridge to the rest of the bullpen."

Astros' Alex White ready to contribute this season
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Astros pitcher Alex White is hoping he can help the club this season, according to the Houston Chronicle

White underwent Tommy John surgery in March of 2013, and admitted it took a bit longer for him to get back on track. "It was up and down," White said. "At first relieving went really well, and then you know it just kind of, it’s one of those things where people say it’s going to be up and down coming back that quick (from surgery) and it really was."

This offseason, White was able to undergo his usual routine. "I feel like I’m back to just being a regular baseball player. Here to try to win a job. It’s exciting." White, who appeared in the majors in both 2011 and 2012, is just hoping to get back.

"I think we’re ready to do that," he said. "I think the arm’s ready to do that, and it’s been a while since I’ve been in the major leagues, but it’s time to get back."

The 26-year-old posted a 6.50 ERA over 63 2/3 innings in Triple-A last year.
