• Another new feature in the Osceola County clubhouse this year is the presence of small mirrors on each of the players' lockers. The mirrors are more symbolic than they are practical and serve as a reminder for each player to take accountability for his action.
"It starts with the man in the mirror," said manager Bo Porter, who has also encouraged players to bring music into the clubhouse and has had food delivered after workouts.
• Right-hander Hector Ambriz, who rolled his ankle Saturday while stepping on first base, remains day to day after X-rays revealed no structural damage. Porter said the swelling was subsiding, and Ambriz remained in a walking boot, though he no longer requires crutches.
• Catcher Max Stassi, who has been held out of drills for three days with a strained oblique, was able to perform some drills Saturday and continues to improve. He was acquired by the Astros from the A's on Feb. 4.
• The only player who wasn't on the field Saturday morning was infielder Jose Martinez, who was scheduled to arrive in the area later in the day. He had been held up on visa issues, and Porter expected him on the field Sunday.
