    If you have been DFA's by the Astros,Cubs or Marlins this season and not named Giancarlo Stanton then its a bad idea to consider picking up the player. Those three teams are just full of awfulness.

    I think Casper is now an A. Traded for "cash considerations."

    I think you mean a White...Sock? I've always been a little fuzzy about the singular. Traded from the A's to the White Sox.

    Infielder Josh Bell has been released by the White Sox, according to Mark Gonzales of the Chicago Tribune (on Twitter). Bell, 26, was with the club's Triple-A affiliate in Charlotte where he hit .273/.310/.345 in 58 plate appearances this season. He was the key player in the July 2009 trade that sent George Sherrill to the Dodgers.

    Ah yes. My memory fails. Thanks for the pick-up.

    And I am pretty sure White Footie would be the singular.

    And to put that in perspective, Drew Stubbs has struck out 33 times in 102 AB's. You're welcome.

    Astros Sign Edgar Gonzalez, Designate Philip Humber
    By Zach Links [May 12 at 9:40am CST]
    The Astros announced that they have signed right-handed pitcher Edgar Gonzalez to a major league contract and designated right-handed pitcher Philip Humber for assignment. Gonzalez elected free agency from the Blue Jays yesterday rather than report to Triple-A Buffalo.

    Gonzalez, 30, owns a 5.88 ERA with 5.8 K/9 and 3.2 BB/9 across parts of ten big league seasons. He didn't fare well in his eight innings for the Blue Jays in 2013, allowing seven runs, five walks, and three strikeouts. Gonzalez made six starts for Houston last year and posted a 5.04 ERA with 6.5 K/9 and 2.9 BB/9.

    Humber, also 30, has an $800K salary for this season with a $3MM club option for 2014 that will not be exercised. The right-hander has struggled in seven starts and two relief appearances for Houston this season, posting a 9.59 ERA with 5.0 K/9 and 3.8 BB/9. Last night, Humber gave up five hits and five runs in two-thirds of an inning.
