Sampson to DL, Daigle called up

Big story today is that of Chris Sampson's placement on the DL with tendinitis in his right rotator cuff. This resulted in Casey Daigle getting the call-up to the Big Club.

In order to make room on the 40-Man Roster, Evan Englebrook was designated for assignment.

MLBTR had this, on Englebrook:
Englebrook, 28, has a 6.46 ERA, 8.7 K/9, and 5.3 BB/9 in 23.6 Triple A relief innings this year. Baseball America ranked him 23rd among Astros prospects heading into the season, noting that his mid-90s fastball is his only above-average pitch.
