Notes

The Astros start the 54th season in the Grapefruit League in Florida. It is the Astros first season in at The Ballpark of the Palm Beaches. Houston moved a little over 140 miles south to West Palm Beach.

The Astros travel doubles from years past with the trip to Publix Field At Joker Marchant Stadium to face the Tigers. Publix Field is in Lakeland, 45 miles away from Kissimmee.

Brad Peacock has struggled with injures for the past two seasons, appearing in only 11 games with Astros. Houston acquired Peacock in 2013 with Chris Cater and Max Stassi for Jed Lowrie and Fernando Rodriguez.
