Get ready for some exciting news, as we cover all the highlights from on the field.
The Astros kicked off their Spring Training season with a strong outing from pitcher Framber Valdez, who allowed no runs, just one hit, and no walks in two innings pitched. He set the tone, and the next pitcher, Cristian Javier, followed suit, striking out three batters in his appearance. Relievers Hector Neris and Bryan Abreu continued the trend, shutting out the opposing team, with Neris striking out three batters in his one inning pitched. A comeback kid, Ty Buttrey, also made an appearance on the mound, retiring the side with only nine pitches and a single strikeout. It’s clear that the Astros’ pitching depth is looking strong this season.
But the Astros didn’t just succeed on the pitching side of things. On the offensive side, Kyle Tucker led the charge with his two hits, including a double. His exceptional performance means he is hitting .500 this Spring, and he’s headed to the World Baseball Classic. Additionally, there were doubles from Yainer Diaz and Will Wagner, while Jose Abreu, Korey Lee, and Rylan Bannon all hit home runs. It’s clear that the Astros are looking to be a potent offensive threat this year.
