Houston Astros Designate Pitcher For Assignment

The Houston Astros have designated Jonathan Bermudez for assignment.

Bermudez has yet to make his MLB debut, and this latest development is not going to help his chances. The 26-year-old is now off the Astros' 40-man roster and cannot get called up to the majors unless placed back on it. 


It will be intriguing to see if another team elects to claim Bermudez once he's placed on waivers. Teams in need of some depth could give him a shot. In 19 games this season in Triple-A, he has a 2-4 record and 8.96 ERA.
