Summary

The 2017 AL MVP was replaced by a pinch runner.Baker planned to play Altuve, Bregman, Correa and Gurriel no more than five innings in Houston's first true road exhibition since a Major League Baseball investigation found that the Astros broke rules by stealing signs during their championship season in 2017.While most of the team made the three-hour trip from West Palm Beach by bus early Monday, Baker said the team's starting infield traveled the previous day and spent the night in Orlando. Established players rarely make such long road trips during spring training."That made it easier for them to show up here, and it makes it easier for me to say: 'Hey, man, do you want to come?'" Baker said before the game, adding that he did not try to prepare Altuve, Bregman, Correa and Gurriel for Monday."No, I don't tell 'em anything. If not, you go ahead and live your life.''Two other Astros were hit by pitches in the late innings, though Gardenhire stressed that it wasn't on purpose.Earlier, Detroit starting pitcher Matthew Boyd, who fanned Altuve in the first inning, said it wasn't difficult to block out the booing and heckling, and he remained focused on playing the game."It's spring training.
