Spring Training Starts for Astros Minor Leaguers

It's only the first day of camp for the vast majority of Astros minor leaguers, but a few have already gotten some time playing on the major league squad. After the first five games, here are the best starts* by those in the system who have not yet made their major league debut:

RHP James Hoyt, obtained this offseason along with Evan Gattis in a trade with Atlanta, has made two appearances for a total of three innings and has allowed only one hit and one walk while striking out one. RHP Michael Feliz (2IP H BB SO), RHP Asher Wojciechowski (2IP H BB) and RHP Tyson Perez (1IP BB SO) have also not allowed any runs.

At the plate, 3B Colin Moran (3x6 R SO R CS) and SS Carlos Correa (3x7 R RBI 2SO) have seen the most game action. Andrew Aplin (1x4 2R BB SB) has the distinction of collecting the only stolen base thus far. Tyler Heineman's (1x2) lone hit was a double and Matt Duffy's (1x3) lone hit was a solo home run. Brett Phillips (1x2) and Nolan Fontana (1x4) each collected an RBI in their limited action and Joe Sclafani (1x2) has already scored two runs in his short time.
