Worth noting

• Porter said Brad Peacock's experience gives him a "leg up" for the fifth spot in the starting rotation, which the Astros will settle during Monday's off-day. Porter also said they will still keep at least one, probably two long relievers. Paul Clemens, Mike Foltynewicz and Jake Buchanan would be the options for that role.
