Astros go out and get another infielder

Just to catch you up:

Lance Pendleton has been sent back to the Yankees, and now the Astros have gone and acquired infielder Joe Inglett from Tampa Bay for a PTBNL, or cash (because they have so much of that).

Inglett will be 33 and posted a .733 OPS (99 OPS+) in 102 games with the Brewers last season.

Also, this move makes absolutely no sense. More later.

Update: Except he's not a candidate for SS1. He's in the mix to be the LH OF5, according to Footer and Levine. So there you have it.
