Description: Jimmy Paredes has been sent to Triple-A Oklahoma City to start the season.
Insight: After hitting .286 in 46 games in the bigs last year, Paredes was expected to compete for the Astros' starting third base job. Instead, Paredes struggled this spring (.190 average in 10 games) and may have missed his chance. Now that Paredes is out of the mix, Chris Johnson (.353 in 11 games) will likely be Houston's Opening Day third baseman.
