The Second Cut is also the deepest

The Astros have optioned four pitchers: Jose Cisnero, Jarred Cosart, Brett Oberholtzer, and Ross Seaton to minor-league camp, and the roster is currently at 49.

Again, no real surprises. While we've heard for some time that Cosart will not be in the bullpen and will develop as a starter to begin the year, this is confirmation that the Astros are sticking with that plan. Later we'll take a look at the Bubble Players fighting for those 25 spots.
