Matt Dominguez, one of the players acquired in the Carlos Lee trade, joins the Astros' lineup right away. That's a little weird, because he hasn't really hit much throughout the minors, and he's only 22. If the Astros want to develop him, one would think the way to do it would be to keep him in AAA, where he posted a .647 OPS so far this year.
Norris has allowed seven homers in his last four starts, so he doesn't look nearly as invulnerable now as he has at times while facing the Pirates in the past.
