Sanchez expected back Wednesday

Angel Sanchez' back has been an issue all Spring, but he's expected to be in the lineup against the Pirates on Wednesday.

Also, in the Astros' search for their OF5, you may have noticed that J.B. Shuck is still in Major-League camp, joining Brian Bogusevic and Jason Bourgeois as candidates for that OF5 spot.

Shuck:
"Hopefully, they know what my style of game is, and I just wanted to come in here and give the manager and coaches up here a chance to see it so they can see that I'm a hard worker and I just do what I have to do to get it done. Hopefully, I've been able to show that."

Still think Locke would be best choice.Best hitter of the bunch and had a better spring. Might as well just release him. He does not appear to be in their plans at all.

I've always wondered what the heck they are doing with Locke.

I wonder what they have told him about their plans for him. Maybe he will comment on his twitter at some point. Maybe he is just not very aggresive in pushing his own case. He should ask them for his release to try and get on with another team. Time is running out on him. Bogusevic may indeed be the fifth outfielder but he has done nothing to show he is worthy.
