In addition to the players acquired in the Rule 5 draft yesterday, the Astros also re-claimed RHP Mickey Storey from the Yankees. Storey had been claimed off waivers by the Yankees last month when he was removed from the Astros 40-man roster in advance of the Rule 5 draft. Storey has been placed back on the 40-man roster which now stands at 40.
RHP Cameron Lamb, one of yesterday's Rule 5 draft picks, is currently playing for the Perth Heat in the Australian Baseball League. Tom Fee, a writer covering the Heat, posted this article about Lamb which may be of interest as we get to know Lamb a bit better. Be warned, though, that there is an oddly placed Public Service Announcement that is a tad confusing.
I have re-configured the Off-Season Transactions list in an attempt to make it more coherent (yet still comprehensive) and I have added these latest moves.
