Astros | Team expresses interest in Van Benschoten as a hitter

The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette's Dejan Kovacevic reports the Houston Astros expressed interest in free-agent SP John Van Benschoten (Pirates), as a hitter. However, he wants to continue pitching. He was the NCAA's home run champion in 2001, but a lingering injury in his left, non-throwing shoulder, has hurt his swing over the years.
