Paulino to the DL

Yep, Felipe Paulino is headed to the DL with tendinitis in his shoulder. Josh Banks' contract has been purchased from Round Rock, and he has been placed on the 40-man roster, and will start on Saturday at Arlington. No word yet as to who has been optioned off the 40-man roster to make room for him.

Update: McTaggart responded to The Crawfish Boxes on the 40-man roster space:
Astros DFA'ed three guys on Sunday and purchased only 2 contracts, so there was a 40-man spot open.
