Nice piece on Jose Carlos Thompson

Want to know more about Cuban-born Jose Carlos Thompson? So did the Astros.

Wade, on Manager of Latin American Operations Felix Francisco:
"Felix talked about the plus bat speed, and we've seen that. Felix saw him at shortstop and thought he profiled more as a second baseman. He's shown good hands and pretty good range and seems to run pretty well. It's all short snippets. It's all pretty much drills we're looking at. We've liked what we've seen so far, and it certainly looks like he'll go to the other side [Minor League camp], and we'll pay a lot of attention to him going forward."
