More Spring Training photos
The first day of Spring Training went off without a hitch Wednesday. The Astros can only hope the next 44 go just as smoothly. Astros general manager Ed Wade said everyone reported on time and in good health, with the exception of pitcher Sammy Gervacio (shoulder surgery) and infielder Jeff Keppinger (foot surgery).
There were 15 position players in camp, most of whom worked out: Hunter Pence, Jeff Keppinger, Chris Johnson, Brett Wallace, J.D. Martinez, Angel Sanchez, Tommy Manzella, Clint Barmes, Brian Bogusevic, Jiovanni Mier, Brian Dopirak, Drew Locke, Koby Clemens, Jack Shuck and Anderson Hernandez.
