Houston Astros SP Rudy Owens (foot) is ready to go this year after missing most of last season with a stress fracture in his left foot. "My foot is good to go," said Owens. "I'm just kind of getting it used to running around in spikes all day again. It's good to go. It's 100 percent, for what it's worth now." He'll likely start the year in the starting rotation for Triple-A Oklahoma City, but could make his major league debut this year.
