Astros-Royals preview

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- After scoring 12 runs in the first two innings to crush the Kansas City Royals 13-4 on Friday night, the Houston Astros are adding another offensive weapon Saturday.

The Astros announced left-handed hitting first baseman A.J. Reed's contract has been purchased from Triple-A Fresno after the game. Manager A.J Hinch said Reed would be the designated hitter in his big league debut.

Reed, who was the Astros top prospect, hit .340 with 34 home runs and 127 RBIs last year with High-A Lancaster and Double-A Corpus Christi.
