Promotions few, far between, unless someone gets hurt. And this is the Astros we're talking about, so...you know...

Ricky Bennett says the players on the minor league rosters are pretty much staying put this season.
“We've made most of our moves. There may be one or two more moves toward the end of the season from a promotion standpoint that we may look to do. But generally speaking, our players are where they need to be, and I want them to settle in and finish on a good note and look toward next year.”

On Koby Clemens, on playing just about everywhere except Hot Dog Vendor:
“I think it will increase his value. He's a baseball player, and that's what we like about Koby. It doesn't matter where he plays; he just wants to be in the lineup every day. This year being his second year in High A ball, he's really putting it together. I think he's really understanding how to use his hands, and he has a much better approach using the whole field that's really helping him.”
We also find out 1st round pick Jiovanni Mier got drilled on the hand for Greeneville. X-rays were negative, and he'll be back in the lineup mid-week.
