  • Astros' Corbin Martin: Major-league spring training on tap

    Martin received an invitation to the Astros' major-league spring training, Jake Kaplan of The Athletic reports.

    Martin quickly received a promotion after starting the season at High-A Buies Creek, and posted a 2.97 ERA, 1.09 WHIP and 96:28 K:BB over 103 innings with Double-A Corpus Christi. The 22-year-old seems unlikely to make the Astros' Opening Day roster though a promotion to Triple-A early on in 2019 wouldn't be surprising.

  • Astros' Forrest Whitley: Receives spring training invite

    Whitley has been extended an invitation to major-league spring training, Jake Kaplan of The Athletic reports.

    Whitley was suspended for the first 50 games of 2018 for violating the minor-league drug program and was limited to eight starts for Double-A Corpus Christi as he battled oblique and lat injuries. The 21-year-old has only 31 career innings at the Double-A level and is unlikely to start the season in the majors given his inexperience. That said, Whitley, who is regarded by many as the top pitching prospect in the game, could very well reach the majors by the summer.

  • Astros' Robinson Chirinos: Switching Texas teams

    Chirinos is close to signing a contract with the Astros, Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports.

    Rosenthal noted that a deal is believed to be in place, pending a physical, though the terms of the contract are not yet known. Across 113 games with the Rangers in 2018, Chirinos hit .222/.338/.419 with a career-best 18 homers and 65 RBI. The 34-year-old figures to step in as Houston's primary option behind the dish following the departure of Brian McCann.

  • Astros' Jose Altuve: Continues to progress well

    Altuve (knee) feels good and expects to be completely healthy for the start of spring training, Jake Kaplan of The Athletic reports.

    Altuve underwent surgery on his knee early in the offseason, but he's had no issue with his recovery thus far. "He's doing very well. All reports are that he feels good and our doctors say he's progressing well. No problems at all. He's going to be 100 percent for spring training," stated Houston's general manager Jeff Luhnow. Expect Altuve to be good to go come February.

  • Astros' Bryan Abreu: Moved to 40-man roster

    Abreu was added to the 40-man roster Tuesday, Jake Kaplan of The Athletic reports.

    Abreu will be protected from the Rule 5 draft following this latest move by the Astros. The 21-year-old prospect has yet to advance past Low-A Quad Cities through two seasons in professional ball, although he allowed just nine runs over 54 innings and struck out 90 across stops at short-season Tri-City and Quad Cities in 2018.

  • Astros' Rogelio Armenteros: Shielded by Astros

    Armenteros had his contract purchased by Houston on Tuesday, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports.

    Armenteros posted a 3.74 ERA and 1.31 WHIP to go along with 134 punchouts over 118 frames a season ago with Triple-A Fresno, and the Astros have protected him from the Rule 5 draft by adding him to the 40-man roster. He'll likely begin the 2019 campaign at Triple-A given Houston's pitching depth but could make his big-league debut later in the year if he continues to experience success.
