Jake Elmore, Brett Wallace called up

The Astros have decided to not bring up another reliever in Wade LeBlanc's absence and have instead called up both Jake Elmore and Brett Wallace.

Elmore is hitting .300/.383/.434 and gives the Astros flexibility in the middle infield while Wallace - hitting .326/.398/.554 (.355/.406/.559 in June) - gives the Astros another option at 3B with the occasional 1B start, as well.

Let's hope that Wallace can improve on his .042/.115/.042 line in his first 26 PAs this season with Houston.

Oh my... it next year yet?

It's conceivable that Elmore could be around for a couple of years as a utility guy. I hope he does well.

Unless Wallace finally produces, this has almost got to be his last go in Houston, right?
