• Bo Porter announced on Saturday that shortstop Marwin Gonzalez will return to the lineup on Monday, though Gonzalez is available off the bench in an emergency on Saturday.
• With the First-Year Player Draft taking place next week, the organization has been busy going over last-minute details and finalizing whom they will select with their No. 1 overall pick. Although Porter's main focus is the current 25-man roster, he is confident that the organization will use the pick wisely.
"We're in a great position, and I believe our scouting department has done a great job of scaling possible picks," Porter said. "I believe we will make a decision that will be beneficial to the Houston Astros for many years to come."
