Worth noting


• Minor League right-hander David Martinez will start for the Astros on Sunday against the Marlins at Osceola County Stadium. Porter says he's trying to get his starting rotation lined up by the start of the regular season in a week.

• Porter said most of the Astros' regular players will stay in Kissimmee, Fla., to face the Tigers on Thursday, when the Astros have a split-squad scheduled for the final day of the Grapefruit League season. Some of the reserves and Minor League players will travel to Disney to face the Braves that day.
