Astros closer Giles working to ensure he's around to finish

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. (AP) Houston manager A. J. Hinch elected to give the Astros a shortened work schedule Sunday, the day before for position players report for workouts.

Closer Ken Giles was having none of it.

"I don't take light days," Giles said. "That's the thing with me. I don't like taking short break days. I always go out there with a mindset of getting something done. I set a goal for myself and I'm going to go do it."
