The Houston Astros scratched right-handed pitcher Hunter Brown from his final start of the Grapefruit League on Wednesday. The rookie will miss his final action of spring training against the New York Mets due to lower back tightness.

Brown made four starts this spring, totaling nine innings pitched. He surrendered five earned runs on five hits, five walks and one hits batsman. Over his last two starts, the righty found his groove, stretching to seven-combined innings with one run and seven of his 10 total strikeouts this spring.

The Astros scheduled non-roster invitee Jairo Solis to start in lieu of Brown. Solis is scheduled to make his second spring training appearance, and his first recorded start since 2018. Two Tommy John surgeries derailed a promising career for Solis, who started the 2021 season on the 40-man roster. On March 13, Solis tossed a perfect inning in relief against the Miami Marlins, throwing seven of his 13 pitches for strikes.

The Astros listed non-roster invitee Devin Conn as a potential reliever for a consecutive game Wednesday to follow Solis. Houston reassigned the right-handed reliever to minor league camp Tuesday.
