• Congrats to two interesting Houston Astros rookies. Right-hander Jordan Lyles finally got his first win Wednesday in 12 starts, allowing three hits in seven innings. Lyles hasn't been bad, with a 1.25 WHIP and decent strikeout rate, and he could break out in 2012. Outfielder J.D. Martinez, batting third -- it's the Astros -- in his fourth start, homered and knocked in four. Each player has NL-only value.
