There was a bit of shadow around who will start for the Houston Astros on Monday. Doug Fister was scheduled to start but his wife was due to give birth to the family's child at some point right around at that time. Thus top pitching prospect Jose Musgrove was flown to Houston to possibly make the start in Fister's place.
As of Monday afternoon, MLB.com's Brian McTaggart and Fox 26's Mark Berman is reporting that Fister will make his scheduled start.

Fister, 32, will make his 21st for the Astros. He is 3-4 with a 4.58 ERA in nine starts at Minute Maid Park. He is 3-4 with a 4.60 ERA in his last seven starts.
No word yet if Musgrove will be interjected in the Triple-A rotation right away or will have put back in his natural spot the next go around for the Grizzlies.
