Astros set Minor League rosters

The Astros have set their preliminary 2014 Minor League rosters for four of their affiliates, Triple-A Oklahoma City, Double-A Corpus Christi, Class A advanced Lancaster and Class A Quad Cities. The announcement was made by Astros director of player development Quinton McCracken.

These rosters are subject to change and will not be officially finalized until the Minor League Opening Day. Rosters do not include Disabled List players.

Triple-A Oklahoma City:

After going 82-62 and capturing an American Southern Division title, the RedHawks are primed for another successful season. Six players on the roster are ranked among the Astros top 30 prospects ranked by Outfielder George Springer (No. 3), pitcher Mike Foltynewicz (6), first baseman Jon Singleton (4), outfielder Domingo Santana (8), catcher Max Stassi (12) and pitcher Nick Tropeano (17).

Overall, 15 players on the preliminary roster spent time with the RedHawks in 2013. Six logged time with the Astros last season, and three others suited up for different Major League teams.

The RedHawks open the season Thursday in Round Rock at 7:05 p.m.
