With minor league opening day complete, the 98 players on the Astros four minor league affiliates have been set(several additional are inactive or disabled). Please reference the convenient roster links below to see who is where
A little tidbit from each of the four rosters after the poll
Watch out for the Lexington rotation... With Jordan Lyles, Ross Seaton, Brad Dydalewicz, Kyle Greenwalt, Robert Bono the Legends' starter may shed some light on the future of Astros' pitching.
Fast advancers in Lancaster... Ten members of the JetHawks roster ended last season at Short Season A Tri-City. Jason Castro, David Duncan, and Jack Shuck and seven others skipped a level in their development.
Repeating AA...Mitch Einertson is the only member of last season's Corpus Christi outfield to be back with the Hooks. Einertson is eligible to be a free agent after this season.
Who will lead the catching race?...Lou Santangelo has reportedly regained his position ahead of J.R. Towles in the depth chart. It will be interesting to see who gets called up if there is a catching injury at Minute Maid Park.
