Your new third baseman? Stark says Chris Johnson

Jayson Stark says the Astros are leaning toward making Chris Johnson the “primary third baseman” and that Russ Ortiz will make the rotation.

We will see how it works out with Johnson, but he slugged .287 at Round Rock in 101 at-bats last year, which would not be considered a good sign. I don’t see a righty-lefty breakdown for him. Stark also said that the Rockies want a good young starter for Jeff Baker, and the Astros don’t have one, although they do have Russ Ortiz (34 years old), Brian Moehler (37) and Mike Hampton (36).
