The Astros have made their first round of cuts this morning.

Those who will head on over the minor-league side of the field:
Doug Arguello
David Carpenter
Cesar Carrillo
Koby Clemens
Jorge De Leon
Brian Dopirak
Rene Garcia
Jon Gaston
Arcenio Leon
J.D. Martinez
Jiovanni Mier
Jimmy Paredes
Jose Carlos Thompson

Nothing too shocking here. Rene Garcia was never a threat to open the season behind the plate for the Astros. I thought Arcenio Leon had an outside shot at the Opening Day roster, but otherwise, all expected.
