In the run-up to Spring Training, Dana Brown indicated that the Houston Astros hoped to make further additions to the pitching staff before Opening Day.

However, that no longer appears to be the plan as the general manager downplayed the likelihood of such an addition this weekend.

"We might add something later (around the trade deadline), but right now I think our team's built to win and we're ready to go," Brown said.

Brown went on to specifically note that he doesn't expect the club to sign Blake Snell.
