The Astros claimed utility player Steve Pearce off waivers from Baltimore. In order to make room on the 40-man roster for Pearce and for RHP Armando Galarraga, RHP Aneury Rodriguez and RHP Enerio del Rosario were outrighted (removed from the 40-man roster) to Oklahoma City. In order to make room on the active 25-man roster for Galarraga, LHP Fernando Abad was optioned to Oklahoma City. A corresponding move to the 25-man roster will have to be made before today's game in order to activate Pearce. Got all that? Phew.
RHP Jarred Cosart has been placed on the 7-day DL (blister problems again).
C Ryan McCurdy was assigned from Lexington to Corpus Christi (made official)
RHP Jose Trinidad was placed on the 7-day DL.
OF Drew Muren was assigned from Corpus Christi to Lancaster (made official).
C Cristian Moronto was assigned from Greeneville to Lexington.
LHP Chris Lee was assigned from Greeneville to the GCL.
