After getting shut out Monday, Bob Melvin has Marcus Semien penciled in at the top of the lineup with Jake Smolinski in center field.
With Sean Manaea uncertain whether he will be able to make his next start, the A's may have to summon another pitcher from the minors.
Rookie Ryon Healy made two errors in the second inning that led to a pair of Astros runs and the A's were never able to recover, losing 6-0 in Houston.
