Villar, Abad & Lyles all in mix for 2010 Houston Rotation

Brian McTaggart updates us today on the Astros pitching plan for 2010. He says that Jordan Lyles will be given a shot to earn the 5th starter role. His competition for that may include former G-Stros Henry Villar & Fernando Abad.

McTaggart on Villar:
Villar's stock has risen so much that he's considered one of the club's top three prospects.
Astros GM Ed Wade on Abad:
Abad, if healthy, and he's healthy right now - I always says that with pitchers - that's a pretty significant left-handed arm in our bullpen. But if he can win 11 games in our starting rotation, we'll figure out the left-handed, right-handed stuff to deal with.
