  • Toronto Blue Jays' Lourdes Gurriel Jr. celebrates with teammates after he hit a home run against the San Diego Padres during the fifth inning of a baseball game Friday

It's not necessarily Astros news, but it's a great feel-good story for their fans.

The move added Biggio - the 24-year-old son of Craig Biggio - to the same Major League Baseball roster that already includes Guerrero Jr, also the son of a Hall of Famer.

Skipper Charlie Montoyo said Biggio will start Friday's game against the San Diego Padres at second base, according to Jim Bowden of MLB Network Radio.

Jansen was given the reigns at the catching position when Canadian Russell Martin was sent to the L.A. Dodgers, a team he has played for previously in his career.

Biggio is batting.307 with six home runs and 26 runs batted in over 42 games with triple-A Buffalo.
