Houston Astros SS Marwin Gonzalez and SS Tyler Greene are each getting a shot to show they can be the starting shortstop in spring training. "I said this to Tyler and Marwin, 'You guys are going to tell us who the starter is going to be,'" manager Bo Porter said Friday, March 8. "It cannot be something judged day in and day out. It's a process, and we're going to allow it to take place throughout the course of spring training, and when we get to the end of spring training, we'll have enough data and enough information to make a really good decision who the starter should be."
