The Astros recalled four players from Triple A after Saturday's loss to the Athletics.


Bo Porter said that when Jonathan Villar first walked into the Astros’ clubhouse on Monday, the 22-year-old acted as if he belonged there, and was going to make his major league stay a long one.


It doesn’t mean Brett Wallace won’t end up in a slump. It doesn’t mean he’ll never be sent down again. Heck, it doesn’t even mean he’ll finish this season with the Astros.


The Astros have optioned outfielder Robbie Grossman to Triple-A Oklahoma City.
