In the latest edition of McTaggart's Notebook:
*Jeff Luhnow addresses the Brett Wallace mystery directly, saying Brett will be up for the "vast majority of the remainder of the season," but injury-related and other personnel moves that "may or may not occur the rest of this month" are being evaluated first.
*In a move that Astros fans on Twitter had already been contemplating, Jimmy Paredes may be moving to the outfield, since Altuve is "going to be with us for a while," says Luhnow. They also discussed him playing short, if needed due to Jed Lowrie's injury.
*If Lowrie is out for a long while, the team may look for outside help, but in the meantime, Marwin Gonzalez is your SS1.
*Lowrie and Jason Castro will be seeing doctors in Houston today.
