Newhan refuses Triple-A assignment, now a free agent

Nick Zaccardi is reporting that David Newhan refused to accept an assignment to Round Rock today and is now a free agent.

That means the Astros have Geoff Blum, Tommy Manzella, Edwin Maysonet and Drew Sutton available as backup infielders (provided Wigginton returns) and only Blum has significant Major-League experience.
