News
In 2014, the Astros had the highest bullpen ERA in baseball with a 4.80 mark. So, in the offseason, the team addressed that issue by bringing in a couple of solid right-handed relievers in Luke Gregerson and Pat Neshek.

A competing general manager called Houston "real smart" for being able to sign both men and making a strength out of a weakness, according to CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman. 

So far, the two have been stellar out of the bullpen for manager A.J. Hinch. Though Gregerson's 4.08 ERA is a bit high, he is 10-for-11 in save chances and has a 14:5 K:BB ratio.

Neshek, meanwhile, is in the midst of 11 straight scoreless outings, and has not walked a batter this season.

After missing his first game of the season and his first in 88 starts, Astros second baseman Jose Altuve is back in the lineup for Monday's matinee against the Orioles, hitting second. 

Altuve has had some success against Baltimore starter Wei-Yin Chen, going 4-for-10 with two RBIs against the pitcher. 

Altuve is hitting second behind leadoff man George Springer, who will get his second consective start at the top of the lineup, the first two times all year the right fielder has hit leadoff.

News
Astros pitcher Collin McHugh surrendered a season-high nine hits over seven innings of work during Friday's 6-2 loss to the Tigers.

"I was pretty bad," he said, per MLB.com. "I was pretty bad with the fastball command. Too many cutters. Too many hard-hit balls. I was behind too many batters. They had nine hits in seven innings. Every mistake I made, they were hitting hard. No, I didn't feel very good about it."

The nine hits led to three runs, which all came on a home run by J.D. Martinez in the third inning. McHugh has pitched at least seven innings in five of his last seven starts. His ERA now stands at 3.43.

"I thought McHugh battled tonight," manager A.J. Hinch said. "He made one or two mistakes. It seemed like every mistake was hit with some authority. They worked him the other way, obviously the big blow from Martinez with the home run in that inning, and they tacked on a few more runs [in the eighth inning]. For McHugh, seven innings, three runs, it was a matter of one swing that took a lot out of his night."

His next expected start is scheduled for Wednesday at Baltimore.

News
Astros pitcher Samuel Deduno (back) threw off a mound Saturday and reported feeling good, per MLB.com. He will throw another bullpen in Baltimore before facing live hitters.

Deduno is expected to return to the bullpen once healthy.

"The three-inning mark for a long reliever is about what you need, which generally is in the 40-to-55 range," manager A.J. Hinch said about Deduno's bullpen pitch count. "He's started a bit as well, but we'd like to get him in the 45-to-50 range to fill a role as a long reliever."

News
Astros right-hander Scott Feldman appeared destined to fall to 3-5 in Detroit on Thursday. His offense saved him, but his numbers still looked rather ugly.

Feldman allowed four earned runs on 10 hits in six innings. He walked one and struck out two after fanning a season-high 10 in his last start.

All was well until he gave up a two-run homer to Nick Castellanos in the fourth. He then fell apart, yielding three runs runs in the fifth and sixth before his removal with Houston trailing, 5-0.

Feldman has six quality starts in nine outings, but his ERA still sits at 5.17. He will attempt to lower it next Tuesday in Baltimore.

News
Outfielder Preston Tucker delivered once again in the clutch for the Astros, and this time, his pinch-hit homer paid off in Houston's 10-8 triumph over the Tigers on Sunday. 

For the second time in this series, Tucker tied the game with a longball. In the sixth inning Sunday, Tucker connected for a three-run homer to draw Houston even, and this time, unlike Thursday, when Tucker hit a pinch-hit homer in the ninth, the Astros were able to pull out the victory. 

Tucker has two homers since being recalled from Triple-A earlier in this month. 

"I don't necessarily feel comfortable pinch hitting," Tucker said. "Once I step into the box, I feel the same, but just the process of it is something I'm not really used to. That's pretty cool that I've been able to help us win."

Gregerson hasn't been dominant -- he's given up runs in four of his last 10 outings and homers in three of his last 10 -- but he's only blown one save this season for Houston.

Lance McCullers allowed two runs over six innings to earn his first career MLB win in his second start for the Astros over Detroit. 

McCullers allowed six hits and walked one, striking out six. He moved to 1-0, with a 2.53 ERA. 

"Just special," McCullers said, per the Houston Chronicle. "I'm just glad that we got the team win after two losses in a row."

McCullers threw 62 strikes in his 100 pitches. His next start is scheduled for Friday, against the White Sox. 

"This kid's got a really good demeanor about himself," Astros manager A.J. Hinch said to MLB.com. "He didn't scare against some better hitters. He's making it known he can pitch up here, and he can help us."

Finger - 15-day DL. Out until at least late May (Updated - 5/13/15)
News
Astros starting pitcher Brett Oberholtzer (finger) will throw live batting practice at Triple-A Fresno before beginning a rehab assignment, per MLB.com. He threw in the bullpen Thursday.

"Now he wants to face a few hitters, prior to a rehab assignment in Triple-A. I would imagine that would happen this weekend," manager A.J. Hinch said. "After that, it's the normal progression for a starter to get another bullpen and throw in a game. We're not too far removed from him being at that five-inning threshold. He'll probably be scheduled for four or five innings in that first outing in Triple-A."

Astros starter Roberto Hernandez didn't have his best stuff Sunday and it resulted in the veteran's worst outing of the season. However, Houston's late rally got Hernandez off the hook and a no-decision in the team's 10-8 victory over the Tigers. 

Hernandez allowed seven runs and nine hits in just five innings of work. Prior to Sunday, he hadn't given up more than four runs in any of his previous eight starts. Hernandez saw his ERA rise to 4.77 after the shaky outing.

Springer went 2 for 4 with a double and an RBI. In his last three games, he is hitting .500/.538/.750 with three doubles in 12 at-bats.
