Pregame concerns: Former buddy Shawn Chacon is starting for Houston. ... In his last spring start, Pettitte pitched two innings, allowing only one hit. ... Duncan is 7-11 with two home runs and nine RBI this spring. ... Rivera will pitch for the first time this spring. He will only pitch 8-10 innings before the season starts.
