With pitchers and catchers starting to report to Kissimmee for the beginning drills of Spring Training, the Climbing Tal’s Hill writers thought that we should begin predicting the 2015 Astros Opening Day roster. Baseball is definitely in the air, with only 44 days remaining until the 6:10 p.m. (CST) opening pitch against Cleveland.
To begin our predictions, we will look at the catchers and designated hitters. The eligible catchers are Jason Castro, Hank Conger, Max Stassi, and Evan Gattis. The eligible designated hitters are Chris Carter, Jason Castro, and Evan Gattis. As you can see, there is plenty of overlap in this group. With that said, let’s see how our writers decided to match them up!
