Lexington catcher Max Sapp played for the first time in almost four weeks over the weekend. The 2006 first round pick, was the DH for Friday and Saturdays contests. He hadn't played since April 12. I have not heard what his injury was.
As the season continues, here's a recap of the other players in the Astros system dealing with injuries...
Tip Fairchild, RHP, he had Tommy John surgery about a year ago, and is supposedly to start competing any day now most likely at Corpus.
Josh Flores, OF, Flores had ACL surgery in February. I'll be surprised if he plays at all this season.
Danny Klassen, IF, I'm not sure what his injury is.
Mark McClemore, LHP, He's in Florida rehabbing
Felipe Paulino, RHP, I'm guessing we won't see him until after the all-star break, if then
Chad Wagler, RHP, Hurt his toe in spring training. He should be ready by late May if I remember the reports correctly.
