Spring training gamethread 3/5: Astros vs. Tigers, 12:05 p.m.

Join the conversation as the Astros take on the Tigers for the second time this Spring Training.


At first I had trouble typing out this lineup card today's Spring Training game, it was like opening the ark in Raiders of the Lost Ark. The lineup reads like the possible 2015 opening day lineup card. Maybe not Lucas Harrell, but you never know. He was a half step away from opening the 2013 season.

Then there was a late scratch of Dexter Fowler. Delino Deshields Jr. will take his place, which doesn't change the picture of the future one bit.

  1. Dexter Fowler, CF Delino Deshields Jr., CF
  2. Jose Altuve, 2B
