The Astros optioned Bannon to Triple-A Sugar Land on Tuesday, Brian McTaggart of reports.

Bannon was battling for a spot on the Astros bench in spring training, but the 26-year-old will begin the season with Sugar Land instead. He has a shot to be up with Houston this summer as a bench option, but he's unlikely to be a regular with the club in 2023 or beyond.
