Astros Farm Report: 4/13

I'm back with an abbreviated Farm Report today ...

WISHING A VERY HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO

4-13: RHP Enrique Chavez (20)
4-17: OF Nestor Tejada (19)

TRANSACTIONS/ROSTER MOVES

Over the last few days, several of our missing-in-action Astros minor leaguers showed up on the DL, including LHP Chris Cotton, RHP Gonzalo Sanudo, RHP Christian Powell, RHP Agapito Barrios and OF James Ramsay. Other transactions include:

4/12: 3B/1B Matt Duffy optioned from Houston to Fresno
4/12: RHP Edgardo Sandoval assigned from Greeneville to Corpus Christi
4/12: RHP David Schmidt assigned from Tri-City to Corpus Christi
4/11: LHP Zac Person assigned from Tri-City to Quad Cities
4/11: LHP Evan Grills activated from the Lancaster DL
4/10: RHP Andrew Walter placed on Lancaster 7-day DL retroactively
4/10: RHP Danny Reynolds claimed off waivers by the Angels
4/7: LHP Albert Minnis placed on the Corpus Christi 7-day DL

For why the move of Sandoval to Corpus Christi isn't a huge surprise and why the move of Schmidt is, see what I wrote about the two in the 2016 Houston Farm System Handbook.

STANDINGS

The rainouts in Las Vegas and San Jose wreaked havoc on the early schedules of Fresno and Lancaster, but they are now back on track and playing baseball! Following the first six days of the young season, here are how things stand with the Astros four full season minor league teams.

AAA  Fresno  3rd  2-2  .500  1.5GB  L1
AA  Corpus Christi  T2nd  3-3  .500  2.0GB  L1
A+  Lancaster  3rd  2-1  .667  1.5GB  W2
A- Quad Cities  T7th  1-5  .167  4.0GB  W1
