Astros interested in Jesus Flores?

The Examiner's Stephen Goff references a MASN report that the Astros are interested in Nationals catch Jesus Flores.

Goessling reports the Astros may scout Flores over the course of this week; however, Bill Ladson of states that Houston remains concerned about the condition of his right shoulder.

Flores is 26, but is 3rd on the depth chart. Just so we're clear, the Astros may be checking out the Nationals' 3rd-string catcher to be Houston's C1a.
