On the same day that he was traded to Houston, L.J. Hoes is starting Wednesday for the Astros against his former team, the Orioles.

Hoes is slotted to bat second between Jonathan Villar and Jose Altuve. Hoes will be starting in right field.

The outfielder was one of the pieces in the deal that sent Bud Norris to the Orioles earlier on Wednesday. Before the trade, he was ranked by MLB.com as the Orioles' seventh-best prospect and had hit .311 in the minors in 2013 before getting the call-up to the big leagues.
