MLB.com's Bill Ladson says that the Astros are cooling off on Jesus Flores, but lefty outfielder Laynce Nix.
Meanwhile, with manager Jim Riggleman saying that outfielder Laynce Nix has an uphill battle to make the team, the Astros may have interest in the left-handed-hitting outfielder, according to the source. Houston would like to add a left-handed hitter off the bench.
I'm not sure what to make of this. You know who could be a lefty outfielder off the bench? Brian Bogusevic. Either there's something in the works, or the source is to be questioned.
