Welcome to the Gameday! Astros RHP Michael Feliz punched out six in as many one-run frames while org-mate 3B JD Davis was 4-5 with a pair of homers, a double, and six runs driven in.

Hello everyone and welcome back to the Gameday. John's annual pre-season prospect reviews have now come to a close, and you can find each team below. Just as a reminder, these are not new rankings. These are the pre-season prospect rankings but with comments from John on their 2015 performances. I will be leaving these here at the top of the Gameday for the next week or so before moving them to the Library section.
