HOUSTON -- Carlos Corporan was behind the plate on Sunday afternoon, catching Astros starting pitcher Lucas Harrell. Jason Castro is Houston's primary catcher.

Corporan last played on Tuesday against the Rangers, also catching Harrell in his first start of the season.

"They've developed a real good rapport, and with today being a day game after a night game, I probably would have given Castro a day off, anyway," said manager Bo Porter. "It just so happens that it aligns up to where Corporan can catch Harrell."

In Spring Training, Corporan caught the majority of Harrell's starts.
