Worth noting

• Astros pitcher Bud Norris, who left Tuesday's game with a blister on his right middle finger, is expected to make his next start, DeFrancesco said. Norris leads the team with 14 quality starts in 24 outings, but he hasn't won since May 21.

• DeFrancesco said Jimmy Paredes, who made his season debut with the Astros on Tuesday while getting his first career start in right field, will eventually get some time in left field later this season. The Astros want him to get more comfortable in the outfield before putting him in the tricky left field at Minute Maid Park.
