Jason Castro went 2-for-3 with a homer, four RBI and two walks versus the Twins on Wednesday.

Castro was hitting .175/.299/.263 with no homers through Monday's action. Now he has two homers in two days, and he's upped his RBI total from two to seven.

Astros optioned RHP Michael Feliz to Triple-A Fresno.

Jake Marisnick will take Feliz's roster spot. The 22-year-old right-hander struggled in his first three appearances, surrendering 10 runs (nine earned) over 7 1/3 innings Feliz actually pitched well in his last appearance, tossing two scoreless innings during Wednesday's romp over the Twins. He figures to earn future appearances this season if he can hold his own in the minors.
May 5 - 12:04 AM

John Ryan Murphy went 0-for-4 with two strikeouts on Wednesday, leaving him 3-for-40 on the season.

At least the Twins pitchers had been performing much better with Murphy catching than with Kurt Suzuki behind the plate, well, at least until they gave up 16 runs in this one. The Twins might opt to send down Murphy to give him a chance to sort through his offensive struggles in the minors.

Stephen Piscotty went 3-for-5 with two RBI as the Cardinals came back to beat the Phillies 5-4 on Wednesday.

Piscotty delivered a game-tying infield single in the bottom of the ninth, and Matt Holliday followed with the game-winner one batter later. Piscotty is batting .303 with four homers, seven doubles, 18 RBI and 17 runs scored through 27 games. He could well end up being one of this year's biggest bargains in the outfield.

Mike Leake was lifted after allowing four runs in five innings Wednesday against the Phillies.

Leake had a very good spring, but he's opened the regular season by giving up four or five runs in six straight outings. We wouldn't go dropping him in mixed leagues -- he's just in such a good situation in St. Louis -- but it'd be great to see some improvement from him next time out against the Angels.
May 4 - 11:47 PM

Adam Morgan yielded three runs in four-plus innings Wednesday against the Cardinals.

Morgan made it look pretty easy for four innings, allowing just two hits. Then the fifth started and he failed to retire any of the five hitters he faced before being yanked, giving up four hits and a walk. Fortunately, Colton Murray came in and stranded both baserunners he inherited, protecting Morgan's ERA from further damage. Still, he's at 6.00 in two starts since his callup.
May 4 - 11:45 PM

Andrew Bailey tossed a scoreless seventh inning on Wednesday and has allowed just two hits in six scoreless innings since his callup.

Hector Neris is probably first in line to become the Phillies' closer if the team makes a change, but Bailey has also presented himself as an alternative. In truth, the Phillies should have just saved themselves some trouble in the first week of the season by making Bailey the closer at the end of spring training.
May 4 - 11:42 PM

Jeanmar Gomez took his first blown save and loss after giving up two runs in the ninth Wednesday against the Cardinals.

Gomez retired just one of the six hitters he faced, with one of his two outs coming on a baserunning miscue from pinch-runner Carlos Martinez. Gomez has done excellent work as the Phillies' closer, but the team would be better off if Hector Neris or Andrew Bailey could secure the job, allowing Gomez to return to his old stomping grounds in the middle innings. It might happen before too long.
