The Houston Astros made waves on Monday by calling up prospects Tony Kemp and Colin Moran. Kemp was able to get into Tuesday's game as a pinch runner -- scoring what should have been the Astros' game-winning run. Now Astros manager A.J. Hinch is putting both players in the starting lineup:

Moran will be batting sixth and playing third base. Tony Kemp will be playing left field and batting ninth.

The question about where the Astros other regular outfielders would play has been answered. Colby Rasmus moves over to center field -- the position he has played most of his career. George Springer stays in the right field. Three rookies will not be starting at the same time with Tyler White on the bench.

Kemp will be wearing No. 16 for the Astros and Moran will be wearing No. 8.
