Earlier today, the Astros sent four players to minor league camp - pitchers Michael Feliz, Vincent Velasquez, Brady Rodgers, and infielder Ronald Torreyes. We can now add right-handed pitcher Jordan Jankowski and infielder Joe Sclafani to that list.

Jankowski, a 2012 draft pick out of Catawba College finished the season in double-A Corpus Christi. He appeared in two games with the Astros this spring, giving up five runs on five hits and a walk over two innings. Jankowski did strike out four in those two innings of work.

Joe Sclafani, another 2012 draft pick out of Dartmouth, represented the Astros in the Arizona Fall league after finishing in Triple-A Oklahoma City in 2014. Sclafani appeared in six games for the Astros this spring, going 3-for-7 with four runs scored.
