HOUSTON (CBS HOUSTON) – It was a who’s who of Houston Astros prospects on the press release from the Astros announcing six players have been sent to minor league camp. Many names of players some thought might make the big league club out of camp will start the year in AAA, barring a major injury in the last week of Spring Training.

Mark Appel (RHP), Carlos Correa (IF), Delino DeShields (OF), Mike Foltynewicz (RHP) and George Springer (OF) were reassigned to minor league camp. Jon Singleton (OF) was optioned back to the minors according to General Manager Jeff Luhnow.

Appel, Correa and Springer are the Astros last three first round picks. Appel and Correa were taken first overall for the Astros.

Correa was hit by a pitch on the hand on Wednesday but x-rays were negative for any broken bones.

The Astros now have 38 players on their Spring Training roster. The final roster for opening day will need to be trimmed to 25 players on the active roster.
