Astros | J.D. Martinez to be tested in RF

Houston Astros manager Bo Porter said OF J.D. Martinez will be tested in right field this spring, even though he's played almost exclusively in left field in his career. OF Chris Carter will be given every chance to win the starting job in left field. "He played a lot of right field coming up and he has a strong arm," Porter said. "He has good range and it also allows us, as the transition takes place, we want to get a look at Carter in field. This allows us to look at him, (Justin) Maxwell and J.D. all in the outfield at the same time."
