Astros: 3 players that could be optioned for Zack Greinke’s return
2 of 4
While likely the odd man out, Brandon Bielak could be an easy option for the Astros.
The bullpen doesn’t hold a slew of optionable arms at this point in the season, while Brandon Bielak could be the last man out. The right-hander hasn’t pitched since Saturday, where he tossed 43 pitches against the Los Angeles Angels.
Bielak is among a small group of arms that would be in contention to be optioned, but even on two days rest, the right-hander is better off in Triple-A. Any of the three options could finish the series on the taxi-squad, but the Sugar Land Skeeters are in Round Rock, which is a quick drive to Central Texas from Arlington.
