-T.J. Burton was reassigned to Corpus from Round Rock.

-The Hooks placed Danny Meszaros and Matt Nevarez on the 7-Day DL, and Greg Rajan speculates that Nevarez has a hamstring issue, while Meszaros' injury is unspecified.

-Within Rajan's blog post (linked above) we see that the Astros obtained Jailen Peguero from the Rangers for a PTBNL.

Peguero had been pitching for AAA Oklahoma City, where in 13 appearances, all in relief, he was 2-1 with a 4.09 ERA. Peguero is on his way to Corpus Christi tonight.

Peguero is an original Hook, spending all of 2005 and the first half of 2006 in Corpus Christi. He shares the club's all-time saves record with 26. In 77 appearances for the Hooks, Peguero is 4-2 with 26 saves and a 2.10 ERA, with 41 walks and 111 strikeouts in 103.0 innings. He ranks second all-time in appearances and has the best ERA for any pitcher in the team's six-year history with more than 100 innings of work.

Peguero has appeared in 25 games in relief in the big leagues over two seasons (2007 and 2008) with Arizona. He has a 1-0 record lifetime in the majors with a 7.50 ERA over 24.0 innings.


-The Legends placed Tanner Bushue on the 7-Day DL, and activated Brandt Walker from the 7-Day DL. Bushue's injury is unspecified.
