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.
