The Houston Astros would likely listen to trade offers for SPs Bud Norris and Lucas Harrell this summer, even though they are the team's two most reliable pitchers so far. Executives would almost all prefer trading for Harrell over Norris, though, mainly because he won't be a free agent until 2018. Scouts are concerned that Norris is still a two-pitch pitcher, too.

Houston Astros SP Bud Norris will be the team's opening day starter against the Texas Rangers March 31. SP Lucas Harrell will pitch April 2, followed by SP Philip Humber.
Fantasy Tip: Norris flies under the radar in the group of midrange fantasy starting pitchers, and his move to the American League West will probably scare even more folks away. His skill set is solid, though, despite a rise in ERA last season.

Houston Astros SP Lucas Harrell has been trying to perfect his curveball this spring. He thinks improving the pitch will help him reduce his pitch counts and work deeper into games. "It's usually my fourth-best pitch," he said. "But I want to make it one of my strengths. I threw a lot down in the bullpen and today I wanted to throw it in situations I wouldn't get hurt. I threw it a couple of times today for a first-pitch strike."

Houston Astros general manager Jeff Luhnow said SP Erik Bedard should have a spot in the Houston Astros rotation this year behind right-handed P Bud Norris, P Lucas Harrell and P Jordan Lyles. "When you have a lot of right-handers in the mix and to have a left-hander with his type of Major League experience and success and track record, it can only help us," Luhnow said. "He's got a strong chance to be in our rotation all year long, and we're hoping that's the Erik Bedard that's had tremendous success already in his big league career."
