Erik Bedard won a rotation spot after striking out nine and allowing no runs over this spring.

KISSIMMEE, Fla. (AP) Brad Peacock and Erik Bedard have made the Houston Astros' rotation and will pitch the fourth and fifth games of the regular season.

Right-hander Edgar Gonzalez was sent to Triple-A Oklahoma City, bringing the Astros' roster to 25 players three days before Sunday night's opener against the Texas Rangers.

Peacock, acquired in a February trade from Oakland, will start against the Athletics on April 5, the Astros' fourth game. Bedard, a veteran left-hander signed as a free agent in January, will pitch the following game against Oakland.

Bud Norris, Lucas Harrell and Philip Humber will pitch the Astros' first three games against Texas.
