Astros' transaction for today. Goodbye to the Barber of Seville.
Houston Astros designated RHP Nelson Figueroa for assignment.
Houston Astros recalled Sergio Escalona from Oklahoma City RedHawks.
I would've preferred to see Lewis back in LF against the right-hander, but I guess Dusty isn't going with a straight platoon.

What's wrong with Janish?
Most Vottomatic Player
Drew with the leadoff walk. Then almost gets picked off by the catcher. Renteria ahead 3-0 on Myers.
ER with the BB. 2 on for Joey.
JV with a double down the RF line. 1-0 good guys, 2nd and 3rd.
Wow........how did Renteria not score on that?
Votto will hit a 2 run double here.
Edit: I now see that my phone is way behind the actual action, and again my prediction fails.
