Roster Moves

In addition to the news from yesterday that RHP Edgar Gonzalez and RHP Jose Valdez were re-signed by the Astros to minor league contracts with invitations to Spring Training, today it was announced that LHP Sergio Escalona (who spent all of 2012 on the Astros disabled list) and newcomer OF Trevor Crowe have also been signed to minor league agreements with Spring Training invites.

Escalona pitched very effectively for the Astros out of the bullpen in 2011. As to Crowe, you shouldn't be surprised to find out that he was a first round pick by Cleveland back in 2005 since Jeff Luhnow has a penchant for picking up former first rounders as free agents, like Scott Moore, Brad Snyder, Landon Powell and Travis Buck. Here are Crowe's major league stats with Cleveland and his minor league stats.
