Spring Training has only just begun for the Astros. But we can still attempt to project the team’s Opening Day roster.

The depth on this year’s Astros squad is arguably the best in franchise history. In fact, the wealth of talent could arguably be the team’s greatest asset.

This development also presents a problem for Astros management. A good one mind you, but a problem nonetheless. In other words, how do you fill out the 25-man roster while leaving talented players off?

As one could imagine, this will for generate something interesting position battles. And one position battle could take place on the infield dirt.
