The Astros made some last minute roster moves ahead of the Rule 5 draft deadline. One of their top prospects, Paul Clemens was added to the 40 man roster. He was one of the guys who came over from the Braves system in the Michael Bourn trade. He was a Southern League All Star and he put up decent numbers splitting time between Double-A and Triple-A.
The Astros also signed Lance Pendleton to a minor league deal and he’s going to get a spring training invite. Pendleton had a rough season in the big leagues and he split time between the Astros and the Yankees. Pendleton was a Rule 5 draft by the Astros but he got returned to the Yankees and then in September, the Astros picked him up off of waivers so he kind of bounced back and forth.
