Astros set Tri-City, Greeneville and GCL rosters
The Astros have set the preliminary 2013 Minor League rosters for the Class A short season Tri-City, rookie league Greeneville and Gulf Coast League clubs. The announcement was made by Astros director of player development Quinton McCracken.
The rosters are subject to change and will not be officially finalized until each club begins league play. Tri-City is scheduled to begin its season tonight while Greeneville begins play Thursday. The Gulf Coast League Astros will start their season on Friday.
Last year, Tri-City set a club record with 51 wins and advanced to the New York-Penn League Championship Series for the second time in three seasons.
The combined record of the Astros’ Minor League clubs this season is 162-125 (.564), which ranks third among all 30 MLB organizations. The Astros’ top three affiliates are currently in first place while Corpus Christi (Double-A) and Lancaster (Class A advanced) each clinched first half titles in their respective leagues to qualify for the postseason.
