Astros' Charlie Morton: Throws minor-league game Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morton threw about 95 pitches in a minor-league game Wednesday, his final outing before he starts next Wednesday against the Mariners, Jake Kaplan of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Morton allowed just two earned runs and struck out 17 batters over 17.1 spring innings. The 33-year-old right-hander is not known for his power arm, but Morton experienced increased velocity this spring, continuing a trend he showed last year in Philadelphia before suffering a season-ending injury in April.

Astros' Mike Fiers: Prepares for start April 7
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fiers allowed two runs (one earned) on two hits and three walks whiles striking out five over 5.1 innings Wednesday against the Marlins.

Fiers made his final spring tuneup before he toes the rubber in next Thursday's series opener against the Royals. He'll make at least one start while Collin McHugh builds up his pitch count in simulated and minor-league games over the next week. Once McHugh is ready to go, Fiers is the most likely starter to be pulled from the rotation.

Astros' David Paulino: Will begin throwing program this week
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Paulino (elbow) is expected to begin a throwing program within the next day or two, MLB.com's Brian McTaggart reports.

Paulino is set to open the season on the disabled list after he was sidelined since March 10 with a bone bruise in his right elbow, but it sounds like three weeks of rest have helped remedy the issue. He'll likely remain at extended spring training for a few weeks while he works to increase his pitch count, and could make rehab appearances at a few of the Astros' lower-level affiliates before likely settling into the Triple-A Fresno rotation. Paulino, who is one of the team's top pitching prospects, could be a rotation option for the Astros at some point later in 2017 if injuries hit the big-league staff.

Astros' Collin McHugh: Will throw sim game Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McHugh (arm) is scheduled to throw a simulated game Saturday in Florida, MLB.com's Brian McTaggart reports.

The Astros have already indicated that McHugh will open the season on the 10-day DL after he was slowed by a case of dead arm in spring training, and the right-hander is still in the process of building up his pitch count. After being tagged for three runs and five hits over 1.2 innings Monday against the Cardinals, McHugh looks like he still has some issues to resolve, so he'll toss approximately 75 pitches Saturday before the Astros reassess his condition. If the simulated game goes well, McHugh is expected to head to a minor-league affiliate for one start next week before being activated. Mike Fiers looks most at risk of losing his rotation spot once McHugh is deemed ready to go.

Astros' Cionel Perez: Set for extended spring training
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Perez will open the season in extended spring training, Jake Kaplan of the Houston Chronicle reports.

It's an effort by the club to strategically build up his arm strength heading into his first full season of competition. The 20-year-old pitched in his first minor-league spring game Sunday, impressing with a fastball that topped out at 96 mph, but will likely need more time to adjust before joining an affiliate team.
