Houston Astros Reassign Multiple Prospects to Minor League Camp

Houston Astros Reassign Multiple Prospects to Minor League Camp

With spring training in full swing, the Astros will be making roster moves daily. This includes potential cuts but also reassigning prospects to minor league camp. This doesn’t mean they are done for spring, as some can come back up to help the big league club during spring if needed.

The Astros announced today they have reassigned six pitchers to minor league camp:

This comes after they reassigned four position players just three days ago:

Alex Bregman, the Astros top prospect, was 1-for-10 with 2 BB/6 SO and 1 stolen base this spring. Third base prospect J.D. Davis was 2-for-5 this spring playing in 6 games. Breakout prospect of 2015, Jon Kemmer, was 1-for-11 with RBI, BB this spring. Lastly, outfield prospect Derek Fisher went 1-for-7 with the one hit being a homerun.

On the pitching side Musgrove was the top guy to go. He posted a line of 4.50 ERA, 4 IP, 5 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 0 BB, 4 SO (including a strikeout on a 94 MPH heater!)

Recent 40 man additions, Paulino and Minaya, were also reassigned. Paulino struggled a bit but has yet to pitch above A+. Minaya pitched in two games picking up two saves, not allowing a run in either outing. Also going to minor league camp is Brady Rodgers (3rd round pick 2012), Brendan McCurry (acquired from A’s), and Danny Reynolds (acquired from Angels).
