when are the Astros going to bring Wallace up to play first, F. Martinez in outfield and get johnson back to AAA where he belongs?

Brian I don’t understand why the Stros don’t call up Jimmy Paredes, he gives you incredible speed and hits for avg. Leading OKC in runs scored: 64 triples: 5 & SB: 28 plus he’s hitting 313, he was so exciting to watch when he was called up late last year, I know he got hurt in the spring, but with 3rd base open now I say call him up, I think he brings more to the table than Brett Wallace or call them both up and move CJ to right field because Brian Bogusevic is not producing.

Paredes is a middle infielder and they’re not going to play him over Lowrie or Altuve. But he’s having a heckuva season down there.

Why not play him at 3rd base, that’s the position he’s playing at OKC and the position is currently open,

He wasn’t good defensively at third.
