Jake Marisnick, Jonathan Villar, Will Harris crack Astros' roster
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Astros outfielder Jake Marisnick, utility man Jonathan Villar and pitcher Will Harris have all been informed they will break camp with the big-league club, according to the Houston Chronicle.

It will be the first time Marisnick has cracked the Opening Day roster. The 24-year-old hit .306/.395/.500 this spring and is a candidate to play regularly at center field.

"It's going to feel like Christmas," Marisnick said.

Villar, 23, batted .209 during his second season in the majors in 2014. This spring, he slashed .256/.356/.436 over 39 at-bats.

"He's made some of the most spectacular plays of the spring, both in the outfield and in the infield," general manager Jeff Luhnow said of Villar. "It's a great story."

Harris, 30, will join Houston's bullpen this season after posting a 4.34 ERA last season with the Diamondbacks. He registered a 2.45 ERA, a 1.18 WHIP and 5:2 K:BB ratio over 11 innings this spring.

Astros' Springer OK with Marisnick starting in center field
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Astros outfielder George Springer has started 15 times in right field this spring and has yet to play an inning in center field. It appears the Astros are going to name Jake Marisnick the starter in center field, and that's fine with Springer, according to the Houston Chronicle.

“I’m going to go out there and I’m going to play the only way I know how," Springer said of starting in right field. “He obviously is extremely skilled. He’s extremely fast. I understand his range, he understands mine, and I think this spring has been good just because he’s so aggressive. I understand that and I’ m just going to let him run. He’s there when I need him to be and it’s the same way for him.”

Still, in the long run, Springer sees himself as a center fielder.

“I think I consider myself a center fielder playing right field, but I think anybody who has some speed considers that,” Springer said. “I’ve obviously had more repetitions there and kind of more game experience now (this spring). So it’s kind of one of those things where I can kind of also slow myself down more."

Astros' Jake Marisnick early favorite to start in left field
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

Astros outfielder Jake Marisnick appears to be the early leader to become the starting left fielder for Houston when the season begins, according to general manager Jeff Luhnow said Tuesday.

"I got to say, based on how Jake did at the end of last year, he’s going to be strong consideration for a starting spot," Luhnow said. "But you know, I think part of the theme of how we’re constructing the roster is there’s options at every position. … Based on what Jake did second half of last year with us, yeah, he deserves every opportunity to be a starting outfielder, and he’ll probably get (that opportunity)."

George Springer and newly signed Colby Rasmus are expected to start as well in the outfield, according to Luhnow. Marisnick is expected to compete with Robbie Grossman for left field.

Marisnick hit .249 in 221 at-bats in 2014 between Houston and the Marlins. He also added three home runs and 19 RBI.

Springer or Marisnick could start in center field for Astros
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

The trade of Dexter Fowler opens up a starting job in center field for the Astros. Jake Marisnick or George Springer will likely start in center field, with the other playing in right field. Alex Presley and Robbie Grossman could also be backup options in center field.

"It's something [manager] A.J. [Hinch] and the staff is going to have to work through," general manager Jeff Luhnow said, per MLB.com. "Marisnick is a natural center fielder, and it's possible he's our opening day center fielder. Who knows? I think it's nice having guys with versatility."
