WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. (AP) - Lance McCullers was back on the mound for the Houston Astros for the first time since having Tommy John surgery after the 2018 season. McCullers started Sunday's spring training game against St. Louis and threw 16 pitches. He finished up by striking out Cardinals star Paul Goldschmidt with a curveball. The Astros want to be cautious with McCullers as he comes back from his elbow injury. If he's OK, McCullers could take the third spot in Houston's rotation behind Justin Verlander and Zack Greinke.
