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.

Video: Porter, Luhnow share good news

Here’s a video of Astros general manager Jeff Luhnow and manager Bo Porter on Monday’s roster activity:

Debating the roster part of daily routine for Luhnow

Greetings from Port St. Lucie, Fla., where the Astros will play the Mets at 12:10 p.m CT today.

Traditions Field

Traditions Field

Astros general manager Jeff Luhnow and assistant GM David Stearns are on the trip, and Luhnow said he’s pleased with some of the players who are having consistent performances, such as Brandon Laird, Rick Ankiel and Brandon Barnes.

“Those have been good outcomes,” he said. “It’s nice to have a couple of starting pitchers do well like [Philip] Humber and [John] Ely, so you can find good news and bad news in every game during the spring. It’s still early on, but I’m very excited about some for the early strong performances and hoping that more guys jump on that train.”

Luhnow and manager Bo Porter talk roster composition on a daily basis, but with three weeks before the start of the regular season, a lot can change. Remember last year? It wasn’t until halfway through spring a year ago when Lucas Harrell was stretched out and put in the rotation, and he wound up being their best starting pitcher, going 11-11.

“Bo and I are talking about it constantly, and upstairs we’re hypothesizing on scenarios on who makes the club and what it means for everybody else,” Luhnow said. “Our conversations will different today than they will a week from now and than they will at the end of March. If spring would end today, what we would we do? We have that conversations every couple of days.”
