Astros' Jake Marisnick: Works to become more complete
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Marisnick put in a lot of work on his swing over the offseason.

Marisnick's value defensively and as a baserunner is well known, but the 25-year-old's bat is tough to maintain in the lineup everyday. He batted .209 with five homers, 21 RBI while stealing 10 bases (15 attempts) in 118 games last season. Houston manager A.J. Hinch called it a "work in progress," while Marisnick admitted there's plenty to improve upon. The organization's offseason acquisitions of Josh Reddick, Carlos Beltran and Nori Aoki appear to signal a reduced role for Marisnick, who could thrive as a fourth-outfielder / defensive specialist.

Astros' Michael Feliz: Returning to pen
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Feliz has a "leg up" on other relievers in competition for one of the final spots in the Astros' bullpen.

Feliz, a starter in the minor leagues, made the major-league roster out of training camp last year as part of the bullpen. He delivered some strong work early in the season, but faltered over the second half. Houston manager A.J. Hinch cited the right-hander's ability to miss bats -- Feliz posted a 13.2 K/9 rate -- and will utilize the former starter in a long-relief role.

Astros' Evan Gattis: Does some light throwing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gattis (shoulder) got in some light throwing Sunday morning, Brian McTaggart of MLB.com reports.

Gattis' progress from his shoulder soreness is certainly a good sign, as it has prevented him from participating in baseball activities early in camp. There's still plenty of time for him to get caught up before the start of the regular season. When healthy, the 30-year-old slugger figures to see time as both the backup catcher behind Brian McCann and as the designated hitter, where Carlos Beltran also figures into the mix.

Astros' Brian McCann: Brushing up on Astros pitchers
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

McCann caught Dallas Keuchel's first bullpen session of spring training Friday.

The Astros are hoping Keuchel and McCann are the battery come Opening Day, so it was encouraging to hear Keuchel talking about a comfort level with Houston's new catcher. McCann's been around and understands what it takes for a catcher to become acquainted with a bunch of new starters. The 12-year veteran has caught 1,372 games since his debut in 2005, so he's learned some about the catcher-pitcher relationship. He also brings a power bat to the position, having averaged 20 homers, 74 RBI and a .799 OPS. McCann will serve as Houston's primary catcher this season with Evan Gattis his backup.

Astros' Yulieski Gurriel: Adjustment to MLB schedule
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gurriel admitted to getting fatigued at the end of last season, noting the difference in schedules between MLB and Cuba, where players don't play everyday.

The 32-year-old Gurriel, who his making the transition to a full-time first-baseman in 2017, spent the offseason preparing himself for the grind of a full MLB season. He spent 15 years in Cuba's Serie Nacional, but never played more than 89 games since 2005. Gurriel is taking on quite a bit this offseason, learning the positioning of a new infield spot and adjusting to the daily haul of baseball in the United States.
