Houston Astros SP Philip Humber will be moved to the bullpen with SP Dallas Keuchel taking his spot in the starting rotation. Keuchel will start against the Texas Rangers Friday, May 10, and SP Erik Bedard will make the start Saturday, May 11.
Fantasy Tip: Keuchel pitches to contact and won't give fantasy players many strikeouts. On the positive side, he doesn't walk many hitters, either, but he's not very attractive outside of AL-only formats. The matchup against the Rangers should probably be avoided at all costs.

The Houston Astros starting rotation is as follows: SPs Bud Norris, Lucas Harrell, Philip Humber, Brad Peacock and Erik Bedard.
Wed, 20 Mar 2013 12:05:55 -0700
Houston Astros SP Bud Norris will be the team's opening day starter against the Texas Rangers March 31. SP Lucas Harrell will pitch April 2, followed by SP Philip Humber.
Fantasy Tip: Norris flies under the radar in the group of midrange fantasy starting pitchers, and his move to the American League West will probably scare even more folks away. His skill set is solid, though, despite a rise in ERA last season.
