Casey Daigle has been designated for assignment following today's game (0.1IP, 4H/3ER, 1BB) against the Pirates (which may or may not get County Clerked. I'm too depressed to do it, and the County Clerk is at a rally.) Who replaces him? Why, Gary Majewski, of course!
The same Gary Majewski who hasn't been in the Majors since 2008, and who has a 4.04 ERA/1.29 WHIP in 35.2IP (35H/16ER, 21K:11BB) for Round Rock this season.
Just want to point out that Jonah Bayliss has thrown 41.1IP at Round Rock, has allowed 40H/15ER, 41K:12BB, and has a 3.27 ERA/1.26 WHIP. Both Majewski and Bayliss are 30, righties, and weren't on the 40-man roster. Bayliss also has a delivery slower than molasses, so maybe the Astros just wanted to get games over with.
