Astros claim Mickey Storey

The Astros filled up the 40-Man roster today, after the two Rule 5 selections, and by claiming reliever Mickey Storey off waivers from the Yankees. Back in November, the Astros waived Storey, where he was claimed by the Yankees. Now the Astros get him back.

Storey, 26, threw 65IP for OKC in 2012, where he posted a 3.05 ERA/1.17 WHIP, with 72K:14BB. In 26 games for the Astros, Storey threw 30.1IP, allowing 27H/13ER, 34K:10BB, for a 3.86 ERA/1.22 WHIP - and was one of the bright spots in the bullpen.
