Alex Presley hits off tee Wednesday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Astros outfielder Alex Presley hit off a tee Wednesday morning and is encouraged by his progress, MLB.com reports.

"I'm happy to be moving forward," he said. "You don't want to go in there and try to go full speed and then not come back if you try to do it too early."

Presley has been working at 60-70 percent speed while swinging the bat. He has been sidelined by a strained oblique since July 7.

Robbie Grossman goes deep in first to help bury Oakland
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Robbie Grossman has just two hits in his last 17 at-bats for the Astros, but the second of those hits was a doozy. It traveled over the fence in the first inning to complete a blitz that gave his team a 6-0 lead.

Grossman also walked twice in the rout to improve his on-base percentage to .313, which is strong when considering he owns a .195 batting average. He has 29 walks in 170 at-bats this season.

Jon Singleton shines light in midst of darkness with home run
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Astros first baseman Jon Singleton has still not achieved a multi-hit game since July 8, but he certainly made the most of his one hit in a Wednesday rout of Oakland. It left the yard for his eighth homer of the season.

The two-run blast in the fifth inning was merely the cherry on top of an 8-1 victory. Singleton has just five hits in his last 44 at-bats.

Dallas Keuchel stays hot in shutting down Athletics
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Astros ace Dallas Keuchel continued to rebound from a miserable slump with his second straight strong outing Wednesday against Oakland.

Kuechel, who blanked Miami for seven innings last week, yielded just one run in pitching his first complete game since May 25. He gave up five hits, walked three and fanned five. His lone mistake was sent over the fence by Josh Donaldson in the second inning.

He will attempt to maintain his momentum Tuesday in Philadelphia.

Astros could be active at trade deadline
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

The Astros are looking to trade DH Chris Carter, according to the New York Post. Carter is batting .212 with 111 strikeouts in 92 games, but he has 21 homers and is slugging .474.

The Post reports the Astros would also be willing to listen to trade offers for starting pitchers Jarred Cosart, Dallas Keuchel and Collin McHugh.
