It's Spring Training preview day, apparently, because all 30 teams have Spring Training previews up. Catch what I did there? Logic.
Anyhow, what did the teams who lost players to the Astros say about them?
Marlins, on Lindstrom:
The hard-throwing right-hander entered last year as the closer, but he had some shoulder problems, and later on had forearm/elbow issues. Lindstrom had a rough year, and he was traded in December to the Astros.
Phillies, on Feliz:
He will be playing third base for the Astros this season. The Phils will miss his glove.
Tigers, on Lyon:
The Tigers gave some effort toward re-signing Lyon before he landed a three-year, $15 million deal in Houston and Detroit turned its attention towards Valverde. Not many relievers could duplicate Lyon's second-half dominance, but a healthy Zumaya would go a long way toward replacing Lyon in his previous eighth-inning role.
