Tranzactionz

This all took place yesterday evening, before the win over the Padres, but let's recap for you, with the help of McTaggart's notebook:

*The Astros will use a six-man rotation at least until the All-Star Break (which sounds like it's far away, but it's only two weeks.)

*Justin Maxwell has been placed on the DL with "loose bodies" in his ankle.
*Travis Buck was DFA'ed.
*Fernando Martinez was taken off the Concussion List and optioned to Oklahoma City.
*The Astros purchased the contract of Scott Moore.

Moore, whose middle name is actually "Alanboyd," has a .965 OPS for OKC in 73 games, hitting .318/.410/.555, with 51K:35BB in 292 PAs. In 23 June games, Moore is hitting .289/.400/.518, with 18K:13BB.
