The Astros will host their former division rivals, the Cubs, in two exhibition games, March 29-30, at Minute Maid Park.

This is the only time the Cubs will be in Houston during 2013 as the Astros make their move to the American League.

Friday's game will start at 7:05 p.m. and Saturday's game will start at 1:05 p.m.

Before those two games, the Astros' Spring Training will begin when pitchers and catchers report on Feb. 11. The first workout will be the next day. Position players report on Friday, Feb. 15.

Spring Training will again be in Kissimmee, Fla. at Osceola County Stadium. They've been there since 1985. Their first Spring Training game is on the road against the Phillies on Feb. 23.
