While not common, Astros manager Brad Mills has had some experience with late roster moves, like the one the team made with starter Jordan Lyles.
"In 2001, we were playing the [Korean national team] in Taipei," Mills said, referring to his time as a bench coach for USA Baseball. "They warmed two people up, and since we were the home team, we had to hand our lineup in first at home plate. After we did, the guy who handed it in for them looked at it and picked the right card. One of the funniest things I've ever seen."
