The Houston Astros had OFs Travis Buck, Justin Ruggiano and J.B. Shuck outplay OF Jack Cust (elbow) during the spring. Cust was limited to 25 at-bats, and he had just one hit during the spring. He was also unable to play the outfield due to discomfort in his left elbow. "The thing with Cust, we weren't able to use him in the outfield all of spring, really," manager Bradley Mills said. "He got to play a couple of innings of a 'B' game out there, and the bat wasn't there and (it wasn't) what we had hoped."
