Astros set Minor League rosters

The Astros on Monday released the roster for their four full-season clubs. As expected, 2012 No. 1 overall pick Carlos Correa is starting in Class A Quad Cities, which is a big jump for a kid who was in high school in Puerto Rico at this time last year.

Other notable assignments:  Pitchers Travis Ballew and Aaron West, catcher Tyler Heinemann and outfielder Preston Tucker are all jumping low A and going to high Class A Lancaster. Outfielder Austin Wates and pitchers Jason Stoffel and Ross Seaton are repeating a level at Double-A Corpus Christi.

Here are the rosters:


Pitchers – Kevin Chapman, Jose Cisnero, Paul Clemens, Jarred Cosart, John Ely, C.J. Fick, Dallas Keuchel, Jordan Lyles, Wes Musick, Brett Oberholtzer, Rudy Owens, Jose Valdez, Josh Zeid.

Catchers – Cody Clark, Jason Jaramillo, Chris Wallace.

why is delino deshields repeating high A?

He’s not. He made it to Lancaster at the end of the season, but pretty much spent two full seasons at Class A Lexington.

Whatever happened to Kyle Weiland? Is his career over?

What happened to Adrian Houser? Is he hurt?

Houser is in the extended program continuing his development.
