Astros' Lance McCullers: Pleased with first BP session
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

McCullers (elbow) faced hitters for the first time this spring, throwing a live batting practice Friday, Brian McTaggart of the Astros' official site reports.

McCullers, who began and ended last season on the disabled list, missed the final month of the 2016 season due to elbow discomfort. The right-hander threw all of his pitches Friday -- the four-seam fastball, curveball, sinker and changeup -- and was pleased with the results. He'll throw two more BP sessions this week before making his Grapefruit League debut. When not on the DL last season, McCullers went 6-5 with a 3.22 ERA in 14 starts.

Astros' Francis Martes: Developing changeup with help from Oswalt
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Martes has changed the grip of his changeup from a two-seam to a four-seam grip, Jake Kaplan of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Martes impressed several hitters during his first live batting practice of the spring Friday, using his mid-90s fastball, power slider and a still-developing changeup. The 21-year-old right-hander has been receiving tutoring from former Astros ace Roy Oswalt, who spent time this week working on Martes' changeup, a pitch Oswalt believes is pivotal to the prospect's development. Martes had been throwing a two-seam changeup despite not throwing a two-seam fastball. Oswalt suggested the four-seam changeup to better deceive hitters.

Astros' Josh Reddick: Moving Springer to center field
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Reddick will make his spring debut Monday, starting in right field against the Mets in Port St. Lucie, Jake Kaplan of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Reddick, who signed a four-year deal with Houston during the offseason, is a Gold-Glove-caliber defender in right field. As such, George Springer, who played 148 games in right last season, will move to center field.

Astros' George Springer: Spring debut coming Monday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Springer will make his first game appearance Monday against the Mets in Port St. Lucie, Jake Kaplan of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Springer, who played 148 games in right field last season, will start in center field against the Mets. He's expected to play in center in 2017 as Josh Reddick, a free-agent acquisition during the offseason, will man right field.

Astros' Collin McHugh: Set for first live BP workout
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

McHugh will throw his first live batting practice session of the spring next week, Jake Kaplan of the Houston Chronicle reports.

McHugh hasn't had any offseason health issues, so this is probably just caution in his preparation. Perhaps they're changing things with him because he's had first-half struggles over the last two seasons. (He failed to recover as well in 2016 as he did in 2015.) The right-hander is often forgotten in the middle to late rounds of fantasy drafts, but his career 8.13 K/9 and 2.45 BB/9 show that he has the skills to deliver an elite season, like the one he treated opportunistic owners to in 2014 (2.73 ERA, 1.02 WHIP, 9.14 K/9, 2.39 BB/9).
