Brett Wallace went 3-for-4 with a homer Tuesday as an Astros split-squad topped the Tigers 9-4.
Wallace started at third base today, but he later moved to first. He's expected to play mostly first base this spring, but his path to a starting job was cut off when Chris Carter from the A's. Wallace has options left, so it's quite possible he'll head to Triple-A to begin the year. It'd help his chances of sticking as a part-timer if he showed he could serve as a backup at third.
