INF Izturis heading to camp with Astros
Izturis was an All-Star in 2005. He hit .209 in with 11 RBIs in 63 games for Cincinnati last season.
Among the Houston minor leaguers invited to camp are 2012 top overall pick shortstop Carlos Correa, who is considered Houston's top prospect, and right-hander Mark Appel, the overall No. 1 pick last summer.
