Johan Santana left his extended spring training start Friday with an Achilles injury.
No word on the severity of the injury but this will obviously keep Santana in the minors for an even longer period of time. The team will likely run a series of tests to see how long he could be sidelined, so expect additional updates soon.ANALYST: Howard Bender
Jake Marisnick was 2-for-4 with a double and a run scored on Thursday night against the Royals.
Jake Marisnick had two hits from the bottom of the order which included a double and a run scored in Houston’s 5 -2 win over Kansas City on Thursday night. His double in the second inning with two outs kept the inning alive and Marisnick scored on a single by Jose Altuve before Yordano Ventura left the game after a rain delay in the second inning. Although Marisnick struggled in the second half, he did finish September/October with a .275 average with three home runs and seven stolen bases. Analysis: Greg Jewett
