Another week; another 12 roster decisions.
This past week the Astros trimmed their Spring Training roster down to 32 players. Here are the recaps from all the moves made this past week:
The most surprising moves of the group are probably Dan Straily, whom I predicted to be a starter in the rotation to start the season due to the Oberholtzer injury carrying over, and Matt Dominguez, who probably should not be a surprise considering his 2014 season and 2015 Spring Training. Straily should be in line for a promotion at some point this season; Dominguez is a different story. For Dominguez to get called up some injuries and/or ineffectiveness will need to occur and he'll need to be producing at Class-AAA. If Jonathan Villar continues to play well he could fill in at third base. As far as first base the Astros have options in Jon Singleton, Chris Carter, Evan Gattis, and even Marwin Gonzalez.
Roster decisions have become tougher and that's a good thing.
