Friday Morning Hot Links

The Astros were off yesterday.

*There aren't many spots open on the 25-Man roster.

*The Chronicle's Hunter Atkins has a nice piece on how players choose their bats.

*Jon Heyman's newest column has absolutely nothing of value for Astros fans, unless you care what Ken Giles is making in 2017.

*FanGraphs released their Top 100 Prospects list. Francis Martes led the way for Houston at #18, Kyle Tucker at #63, and that was it. Nice write-ups on both, though.

*Former Astros manager Bill Virdon will have a life-size statue unveiled at the Missouri Sports Hall of Fame in May.

*Bob Bruce - the first starting pitcher at the Astrodome - died.

*The tools of baseball's fly-ball revolution.
