Astros' Dallas Keuchel: Throws BP on Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Keuchel (shoulder) faced hitters Sunday for the first time since last August, Jake Kaplan of the Houston Chronicle reports. "All went well" during the live batting-practice session, according to Houston manager A.J. Hinch.

Keuchel, who finished up the final five weeks of the 2016 season on the disabled list because of a shoulder injury, threw between 35 and 40 pitches Sunday morning. The left-hander is on an individualized throwing program and is not expected to make the first of his five spring starts until the second week of March.

Astros' Evan Gattis: Will man DH spot in Sunday's lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gattis (shoulder) will man the DH spot and bat in the cleanup spot in Sunday's Grapefruit League game against the Braves, Jake Kaplan of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Gattis received an anti-inflammatory injection in his right shoulder a little over a week ago and has been limited in workouts lately, but it appears the worst of the injury is behind him. It remains to be seen when the Astros will use him behind the plate in a game, but the fact that he's serving as the DH on Sunday suggests that the issue is probably nothing to worry about.

Astros' Brad Peacock: Works two scoreless in Saturday's opener
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Peacock allowed two hits and struck out one in two scoreless innings Saturday against the Tigers.

Peacock is a longshot to make the Astros' Opening Day roster and if he does, it will be as a long reliever. There are a few paths to that roster spot: either Mike Fiers beats out Joe Musgrove for the final rotation spot or an injury to another starter. If the Astros want him to return to Triple-A Fresno, Peacock will need to clear waivers because he's out of minor-league options.

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.
