Interim manager Tony DeFrancesco said the team will likely add extra pitching, a position player or two and an extra catcher sometime soon. But DeFrancesco also wants to get players already with the team a real chance to learn at the Major League level.
"We're going to try to get a consistent lineup out there," DeFrancesco said. "We're going to try to give these guys some Major League at-bats."
The regular season for Triple-A Oklahoma City ends on Monday. The Astros will probably wait until then to make any moves, barring injury or a dire bullpen situation.
The RedHawks entered Tuesday 4 1/2 games out of first place in the Pacific Coast American Southern division. They have three more games against first-place Albuquerque this week, so qualifying for the postseason is still possible.
Houston probably wouldn't promote players from the RedHawks roster right away if the Triple-A affiliate extends its season beyond Monday.
"You never know in baseball," DeFrancesco said. "They could sweep them and have a chance down the road."
