    Preston Wilson anyone?

    HOUSTON -- The Houston Astros announced on Saturday that outfielder Preston Wilson was designated for assignment, which gives them 10 days to trade, release or reassign the 32-year-old to the Minor Leagues.
    The move was made in order to make room for rookie right-hander Jason Hirsh on the 25-man roster. Hirsh, 24, is set to make his big league-debut Saturday against the Padres.

    Wilson, whom the Astros signed to a one-year deal with a club option for three years in January, hit .269 (105-for-390) with nine homers and 55 RBIs over 102 games for the Astros.

    ok now we definfitly know wat he can do and he wasnt having that bad of a season plus his three year deal only kicks in with an option so thats out of the way. hmmmm this man should be a serious candidate
    He's twice the player that Holly is. Offer up Bergolla for him.

    Preston Wilson is terrible.

    princeton was looking for a right-handed bench guy with pop. I don't know if Preston Wilson qualifies for that these days...but I'd rather have him at the plate late vs. a lefty late in the game if it was between him and LaRue.

    Take him. Chambliss can help free swingers (see Brandon Phillips). Also if Griffey gets injured we're in trouble.

    But he's better than Todd Hollandsworth.

    I think Wilson was one of the first guys to get freaked out over the LF wall in Houston. He's golfing everything.

    Houston would never trade him to us anyway, so the point is moot.

    I have a feeling Wilson would resist being used in a bench role unless it was the Yankees or something.

    It can't hurt to try. Right now the Reds have no real option on the OF if Freel needs a day off.
    I'm East of you. Be very very worried. Not quite OBX. But, be worried.

    I would much rather have Denorfia.

    Deno should try switch hitting, even if he stinks from 1 side he'll be back here in place of Holly.

    Talk about racking up some serious K's as a team. Can you imagine Dunn and Wilson in the same lineup?
