    R.A. Dickey is still very much alive in the conversation for the National League Cy Young award. The knuckleballer tossed seven innings of one-run ball this afternoon at Citi Field as part of a 3-1 win over the Astros. The strong performance helped the Mets snap a six-game losing streak. Dickey actually got the Mets…

    Kansas City has added a pair of bench players by acquiring catcher Humberto Quintero and outfielder Jason Bourgeois from the Astros for minor leaguer Kevin Chapman and a player to be named later.

    Released by the A’s last week, Landon Powell has signed with the Astros on a minor-league contract.

    Houston Astros v Florida Marlins

    Backup catcher Humberto Quintero has left Astros camp and traveled to Houston to have his injured back examined by team doctors. Quintero told Brian McTaggart of MLB.com that he’s “feeling better,” but players tend not to leave spring training and fly to another state unless the injury has people worried.

    Wandy Rodriguez

    The 2012 Astros are pretty sure bets to lose 100 games, with the big question being whether they’ll top last year’s mark of 106 losses. That achievement will be tied to their ability to move the contracts of Wandy Rodriguez, Brett Myers and Carlos Lee. Ideally, they’d be able to sell off at least the…

    Jason Castro breaking his foot while playing in the Arizona Fall League left the Astros short on catching depth and Brian McTaggart of MLB.com reports that they’ve agreed to terms with veteran backstop Chris Snyder.

    Jason Castro missed the entire season following knee surgery for a torn ACL suffered during spring training and now the Astros catcher may not be ready for next spring because of another operation.
