    Not publicly available except for minor leaguers that played in an MLB spring training game at a site with tracking data.

    Odd, considering he appeared for them in tonight's game

    Yep I saw that. As of the time of this comment, his milb.com status shows as suspended. There must be something wonky with the roster updating.

    Well, Enoli's rehab seems to be going well as he struck out five of the six batters he faced for Corpus tonight.

    McKenna's was a grand slam. Nice start for him so far... this is a fairly important year for him if he wants to get back in the top prospect conversation.

    Yep, McKenna needs to make quick work of High A.

    Good to see HR from all those guys capable of playing up the middle (Barefoot, Barber, Dawson, Meyers, and McKenna can all probably handle CF, Berryhill is a catcher, and De Goti is a SS). The clip I saw of Meyers’ HR was very encouraging. He looks like he’s in great shape and his swing/bat speed looked really good on that one. He is still probably a 4th OF but a Jake Marisnick type career is in play for him.

    I think this has happened in previous years. The Astros get around roster limits by placing players on the temporarily inactive, so I suspect that it's a misclassification. Either that or the Astros hand our short suspensions like candy.

    Only 2 Astros prospects related comments from Goldstein’s chat today. He is worried about Jairo Solis since his injury is pretty serious. And he believes that Freudis Nova has the bat to be viable even at 3B, so long as his pitch selection improves.

    Not sure of Garcia's prospect status, but in other Astros news he mentioned Garcia might not be the one that goes down/to the pen when Astros get Odorizzi or Valdez back.

    After Taylor Jones hit a two-run single, Jose Siri hit a two-run homer.

    Siri now has two home runs in the early going.

    So the AAA rotation is Shawn Dubin, Brett Conine, Tyler Ivey, Ryan Hartman, and Nivaldo Rodriguez. Austin Hansen appears to also be stretched out.

    Nerio Rodriguez has his fourth multi-walk game this season.

    He's finally getting a chance to play outside of the complex leagues and I honestly think he's the system's top prospect at catcher.

    He’s definitely underrated and off to a great start, but so far this season he’s also struck out in 27% of his pa, sporting a lucky .429 BABIP, and had at least one passed ball on defense. If he is able to keep walking a bunch and show power like he has, he will raise his profile big time. For now I would still give the nod to Korey Lee.
