Mets Astros Spring Baseball

Houston Astros shortstop Jack Mayfield dives for a ground ball single by New York Mets' Michael Conforto during the third inning of a spring training baseball game Saturday, Feb. 29, 2020, in West Palm Beach, Fla.

It’s back to work for Del Rio’s Jack Mayfield.

Mayfield and 55 other players return to spring training today as part of the Houston Astros’ player pool for the upcoming abbreviated 2020 Major League Baseball season. The 56 players selected by the Astros will be eligible to play for the team during the season, but the opening day roster will be limited to just 30 players with that number eventually shrinking to 26 players after about a month.
