Astros' Hinch says prospect Nolan Fontana made good impression
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Astros prospect Nolan Fontana was sent to minor-league camp Friday after batting just .111 (1 for 9) in nine spring games. While it doesn't appear Fontana made a lasting impression, stats don't tell the whole story.

"He doesn't come with as much attention, but from a well-rounded baseball skill standpoint he made a good impression," manager A.J. Hinch said.

Fontana, who was a second-round pick in 2012, is not among the Astros' top 10 prospects, according to Baseball America.
