Tuesday morning tidbits

The great, albeit hot, weather we’ve experienced entire spring gave way this morning to the first rain of camp. That put a damper on the Astros’ early-morning workouts, but the skies should clear in time for today’s 12:05 p.m. CT game against the Braves.


Here is the lineups:


CF Jason Bourgeois

SS Clint Barmes

RF Hunter Pence

LF Carlos Lee

2B Bill Hall

DH Brian Bogusevic

1B Koby Clemens

C Humberto Quintero

3B Tommy Manzella

RHP Brett Myers


LF Jordan Schafer

CF Nate McLouth

DH Chipper Jones

2B Dan Uggla

RF Jason Heyward

3B Joe Mather

1B Freddie Freeman

C J.C. Boscan

SS Diory Hernandez

RHP Tommy Hanson

Also scheduled to pitch: Brandon Lyon, Jeff Fulchino, Wesley Wright, Mark Melancon, Ryan Rowland-Smith, Gustavo Chacin, Patrick Urckfitz. 

  • Left-hander Fernando Abad, who was scheduled to pitch on Tuesday, was sent home ill and will likely throw tomorrow.
  • Manager Brad Mills said he might try some other guys at the No. 2 hole, though Clint Barmes might have the tools to be there on Opening Day. One name he mentioned was Brett Wallace, who had three hits on Monday.
