Astros send Singleton, Chapman to Triple-A; DFA Alex Presley
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

The Astros have optioned first baseman Jon Singleton and left-hander Kevin Chapman down to Triple-A Fresno, and designated outfielder Alex Presley for assignment, according to the Houston Chronicle on Tuesday.

According to MLB.com, the Astros may try to trade Presley if they are unable to keep him. Presley, 29, slashed .212/.316/.333 with three RBI over 33 spring at-bats.

Singleton, 23, made his debut in 2014 and hit .168 over 310 at-bats in his first season in the majors. He hit .213 this spring.

"There are definitely things I need to improve on," Singleton said. "This move was necessary."

Chapman, 27, registered a 4.64 ERA in his second season in the majors last year. This spring, he posted a 2.16 ERA, a 1.44 WHIP and 10:3 K:BB ratio over 8 1/3 innings.

"I just need to just polish up a little bit," Chapman said.

Tony Sipp lands role in Astros bullpen, last spot still open
by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com

Astros manager A.J. Hinch announced that LHP Tony Sipp had earned a spot in the bullpen.

"Sipp's on the team," Hinch told MLB.com's Brian McTaggart

There are still three pitchers battling for the final spot in the Astros pen: Kevin Chapman, Joe Thatcher and Darin Downs

Thatcher is the most experienced, but he's not on the team's 40-man roster. Still, he appears to be the favorite. 

"Thatch has thrown well and has some experience," Hinch said. "Chapman is still in the mix."

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' Kevin Chapman trying to keep hitters guessing with changeup
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

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.

Kevin Chapman making return to majors
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

The Astros will recall pitcher Kevin Chapman from Triple-A Oklahoma City Friday, reports MLB.com.

Chapman has a 1.23 ERA in 44 innings of relief in Triple-A this season, but struggled mightily in his last trip to the majors. He allowed seven runs over 5 2/3 innings in seven major-league appearances earlier in the season.
