The Houston Astros have promoted a few prospects during the 2016 season: Tyler White, Chris Devenski, Colin Moran, Tony Kemp, and A.J. Reed. Not all of them have stuck in the majors, but the Astros continue to shuffle their prospect depth chart as multiple reports have indicated the team will promote infielder Alex Bregman and outfielder Teoscar Hernandez to Triple-A Fresno after the Texas League All-Star Game on Tuesday.
