As the Astros’ spring training is just warming up, the writers here at CTH have boldly chosen their Astros roster predictions for shortstop and third base. If you missed the first two installments, the CTH writers submitted their predictions for Catcher and Designated Hitter and First and Second Base.
Like the other predictions so far, third base and shortstop seem to be locked up. The Astros signed Jed Lowrie to a three-year deal to play shortstop, or until the boy wonder Carlos Correa is ready. The Astros weren’t satisfied with the production they got out of shortstop and third base from 2014, so part of their offseason goals were to improve these two spots.
