The Houston Astros have set their 2013 Opening Day 25-man roster, General Manager Jeff Luhnow announced today. In order to set the active roster at 25, the team had to make three transactions today.

Houston officially purchased the contracts of outfielder Rick Ankiel, left-handed pitcher Erik Bedard and right-handed pitcher Edgar Gonzalez.
