Brian McTaggart has the feel-good stories of call-ups Brian Esposito and Brian Bogusevic.
"At the end of the day, I put all the work in and to just get an opportunity like this makes you feel like all the hard work you've put into it has paid off. It's a good feeling for me. I know I worked hard and busted my butt to get myself in position to do this. I don't know how much I'm going to play or how little, but I'm here and available for whatever they need me for. We'll just take it from there."
And on Bogusevic?
Astros manager Brad Mills plans to use Bogusevic as a left-handed bat off the bench, though he will get some playing time in right field.
