Cordero to DL, Storey up

Moar tranzactionz! Francisco Cordero has been placed on the 15-day DL with a chronic case of suck right foot sesamoiditis ("toe inflammation," says Zach Levine). To take his spot in the bullpen, the Astros have purchased the contract of RHP Mickey Storey from Oklahoma City.

Storey, 26, will be making his major league debut after five seasons in the minors. Acquired by trade from Oakland last season, he's put up a 7-4 record with a 3.05 ERA, 10.0 K/9, and 1.9 BB/9 in 65 innings primarily of relief work (2 starts in 38 games).

If my count is correct, this move puts Houston's 40-man roster back at a full 40.
