Catcher Jobduan Morales - acquired from Miami in the Justin Ruggiano trade - has been spending some time at 1B for Tri-City.
The Troy Record's Ed Weaver:
He could be in a higher league but the Astros wanted him to work on his throwing and play a little first base.
He started at first base for the first time this season two weeks ago and made two leaping catches of line drives.
“That felt good,” he said.
