Astros | Like Rick Ankiel

Houston Astros manager Bo Porter seems to like OF Rick Ankiel, who can play all three outfield spots and possesses a plus arm. "He's a veteran guy with great leadership ability, and I think he's going to add to the leadership in our clubhouse and add to the leadership on the field, as well. You look at our roster, you look at the opportunity that presents itself, there's a definite opportunity for Rick to come in here and play well and be part of our 25-man roster," Porter said.
