Minor-league cuts

It was rumored that there were some major minor-league cuts (see what I did there? Bam!) on Monday night, and Baseball America confirmed it. Players no longer with the Astros are:

Casey Hudspeth
Ben Paxton
Jordan Powell
Spencer Hylander
Antonio Noguera
Kirkland Rivers
Craig Corrado
Mike Diaz
Gabe Suarez
Sean Barksdale

This makes me sad. Spencer Hylander had a good year. The Astros signed Paxton at the end of November - what the heck could have happened? And Gabe Suarez signed in May via the Long Island Ducks.
