Might this be a clue as to where Lyles will start 2010?

Sometime in the next week or so (I hope), we'll get to Jordan Lyles' season/career recap, and we'll see that he took it to the next level at Lexington in 2009. Travis Driskill was his pitching coach, and can take some credit for that.

So to see McTaggart's report that Driskill will be the pitching coach at Corpus, and former Greeneville pitching coach Rick Aponte will replace him at Lexington, certainly is interesting. Especially when Driskill said Lyles may find himself at Corpus in 2010.

Aponte has been with the Astros in some capacity for 34 years. He was the bullpen coach in Washington in 2007-08, and spent last season as the pitching coach with the GCL Astros.

Dust off your resume, because the Astros still need pitching coaches at Greeneville and the GCL.
