Astros getting healthy as they host A's

HOUSTON -- At one point during the Astros' series against the Cleveland Indians, Houston manager A.J. Hinch had a two-time batting champion, a near All-Star last season, and a potential Hall of Famer on his bench in part due to a rash of injuries.

While splitting their six-game road trip through Tampa Bay and Cleveland, the Astros lost a pair of outfielders (George Springer and Jake Marisnick) plus All-Star second baseman Jose Altuve to injury. The cruelty in Altuve going down with a sore shoulder was that his injury came via a collision with Teoscar Hernandez, an outfielder called up to replace Marisnick (concussion) on the active roster.

The spate of injuries, albeit minor, gave Hinch a peek at his roster depth. Things were a bit closer to normal on Friday, when the Astros (15-8) opened a three-game series with the Oakland Athletics with a 9-4 victory at Minute Maid Park.
