The Astros will throw starting pitchers Scott Feldman and Brad Peacock for four or five innings each in a Minor League game Tuesday, which is a scheduled off-day for the Major League club. Brett Oberholtzer will pitch in a Minor League game on Wednesday.
"When you have a limited number of innings as far as the main game, you have to make sure you find a way from a competitive standpoint to keep all your guys sharp, and make sure the guys that are in competition have enough information to be able to base your information on when it gets to decision-making time," manager Bo Porter said.
