Poor Gaston Gazette. I don't want to do it. I really don't. They seem so happy. So proud. But someone should probably tell them that Jake Buchanan didn't make the 25-man roster.
A former two-time Gazette player of the year, Buchanan has been promoted to the Houston Astros opening day roster and could soon be North Gaston’s first major-leaguer. Buchanan, a 2007 North Gaston High graduate, got the call late Tuesday night and will be with the Astros as they open their 2012 season with a three-game home series against Colorado that begins Friday night.
I've scoured Twitter. Searched the Tranzactionz feed at astros.com. Asked around. The best I can come up with was confirmed by Farmstros, that Buchanan is at Minute Maid for the exhibition game tonight against the White Sox, but that's it.
