Lowrie could miss Opening Day

Marwin Gonzalez could be your SS1 come Opening Day, as there's some concern about Jed Lowrie's thumb, which he sprained diving into 2nd base on Wednesday.

"He wasn't able to grip the ball as well as we'd like. We're going to wait and see how that works out. It's pretty tender."

Lowrie says he can't pick up the bat, and Luhnow isn't giving away any details:
"That could be a few days; it could be a couple of weeks, and anywhere in between. We need to proceed with contingency plans in place for Jed being ready to go Opening Day, and Jed not being ready to go Opening Day.

If Gonzalez doesn't stick on the roster, the Astros have brought Angel Sanchez and Brian Bixler back over from minor-league camp. Because God has forsaken us.
