The Astros arrived to Minute Maid Park around 11:30 Monday night, after a quick flight following their game against the Hooks in Corpus Christi. There’s about a 30-minute wait between the time the buses pull in to the ballpark and the time the truck with the luggage and equipment arrives from the airport, so most players pass the time in the clubhouse settling in at their lockers.

Lots of players and staff members already sent the bulk of their personal luggage back on the truck that traveled from Kissimmee to Houston a few days ago, so this was as good a time as any to gather those belongings. Other than that, the main focus was getting out of there and hitting the sack. That was a long, long day.

Jose Altuve, Wilton Lopez

This is just a small sampling of the luggage that arrived a couple days ago, on the 18-wheeler that headed out of Kissimmee a few days ahead of the team.

J.A. Happ, Chris Johnson

Jordan Schafer, J.D. Martinez

Chris Snyder

Happ, Kyle Weiland
