Kissimmee, Florida has been ripe with prospect as new left-handed reliever Neal Cotts is becoming quickly accustomed to his new deal. SB Nation’s MLB Daily Dish says “Houston has been looking to add a lefty reliever on a minor-league deal all winter, and had most recently been linked to Randy Choate. Cotts will join Tony Sipp as the only two lefties currently in the Astros’ bullpen mix, giving him a legitimate shot at cracking the team’s Opening Day roster.” The Veteran-turned-Baseball player also was reported by the Houston Chronicle to have “reported to camp Saturday morning, but he wasn’t able to work out and throw his bullpen until after he went through his physical.” Being an enthusiastic addition to to the Houston Astros minor league lineup, Cotts should be a fitting addition to the hype the early part of the 2016 season is yielding.
