The Astros sent four more players to minor league camp on Monday. Pitchers Michael Feliz and Vincent Velasquez and infielder Ronald Torreyes were all optioned to the minors while right-hander Brady Rodgers was reassigned to minor league camp.

Feliz, Velasquez and Torreyes are all on the 40-man roster.

Rodgers, 24, appeared in three games, his first appearances in big league spring training. Rodgers allowed six hits and six runs in 3 1/3 innings, striking out one and walking three.

Velasquez, 22, did not appear in a game this spring after suffering a lat injury. The oft-injured right-hander was put on the 40-man roster for the first time this winter.

Feliz, 21, threw in two games for the Astros. In three shutout innings, the right-hander struck out three while allowing one hit and one walk.

Torreyes, 22, appeared in six games during the spring. The utility man went 0-for-8 at the plate with two strikeouts, one walk and one RBI. Torreyes was a surprise addition to the 40-man roster last winter and could be in Houston's plans as a backup infielder if injuries strike.

With the moves, Houston's spring roster stands at 53.
