Michaels needs three plate appearances to make $100,000

The Astros have an option with Jason Michaels for 2011: Exercise it, and pay him $900,000; or don't.

However, if Michaels gets three more plate appearances, there will be an automatic $100,000 buyout in place. Let's keep an eye on this weekend to see if Mills gets him in the game. The Astros will face three righties this weekend against the Cubs (Coleman/Zambrano/Dempster), dampening his chance of getting a start in LF when Carlos Lee plays 1B against lefties.
