Astros' Ronnie Dawson: Called up, starting Wednesday
The Astros selected Dawson's contract from their alternate site ahead of Wednesday's game against the Tigers, Brian McTaggart of MLB.com reports. He'll serve as Houston's designated hitter and hit eighth in his MLB debut, per Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle.

Until at least a couple of those players clear MLB's health and safety protocols, the lefty-hitting Dawson could be a strong-side platoon player for Houston.
