Astros Farm Report: 4/28

The Astros are cranking them out from Extended Spring Training this week!

STANDINGS

Let's take a look in on the standings of the Astros farm teams within their respective divisions a little over three weeks into the new season.

AAA Fresno 3rd 9-12 .429 3.0GB L3
AA Corpus 1st 12-8 .600 0.0GB L1
HiA Buies Creek 1st 14-7 .667 0.0GB W2
LoA Quad Cities T3rd 11-10 .524 3.0GB L1

ROSTER MOVES/TRANSACTIONS

Note: The Astros have been moving players back and forth to either Tri-City or Extended Spring Training as a means of managing their rosters. I won't be including those moves in this list if I believe that they are only being made on paper for roster management.
