Justice is such a tease...

In a blog post this afternoon, Justice titled it "Astros may pick up a third baseman and a starting pitcher."

Where will these mystery men come from?

3B: Aaron Boone
Boone rejoined the Astros this afternoon and plans to play in the big leagues again this season. He'll take batting practice for the first time this afternoon since undergoing heart surgery last spring.

He'll make the week-long road trip to Chicago and St. Louis, and if all goes well, probably will do a rehab stint in the minors before returning to the big leagues.

SP: Bud Norris?
Bud Norris might just be ready to take his place in the rotation or the bullpen as well. The Astros have resisted the temptation to bring him to the big leagues before now, and there doesn't seem to be a real need for him at this point.

He may be relegated to middle relief, but that could be a perfect way to allow him to get his feet wet in the major leagues before he takes his place in the rotation next season.
