Astros-Tigers preview

DETROIT -- The Houston Astros are a little pinched in the outfield and on the bench until center fielder Carlos Gomez gets back into action.

Houston plays the middle of a three-game weekend series in Detroit on Saturday night with Mike Fiers facing Justin Verlander in a matchup of right-handers.

Doug Fister didn't travel with Houston -- he's not scheduled to start again until Monday -- to be with his wife awaiting the birth of their first child. The Astros will place Fister on paternity leave once the baby's birth is imminent and at that time could add an extra player to alleviate the bench shortage.
