Cole, Astros open two-game set vs. Giants

HOUSTON -- Despite their perch atop the American League West, the Astros remain in search of consistent production from a few spots in their lineup, with left field representing a concern.

With Jake Marisnick optioned to Triple-A Fresno and Derek Fisher landing on the 10-day disabled list with gastrointestinal discomfort, opportunity has again knocked for Tony Kemp. A fifth-round pick by the Astros in 2013, Kemp has found himself wedged between the majors and Fresno, excelling at the latter level while lacking the chance to stick with the Astros. He had compiled 175 plate appearances over 76 games and two seasons before his recall last week, and with some competitive at-bats and defensive handiwork, Kemp is raising eyebrows again.

"This is not new; he just hasn't done it at this level because we haven't given him the opportunities," Astros manager A.J. Hinch said. "I applaud him for his patience, it's been a tough road for him overperforming Triple-A and not getting an opportunity here.
