March 31 to July 22

Because I can't write any opinions this morning that don't involve swearing, I thought we could take a look at the turnover in the 25-Man Roster from Opening Day to today, and see just what kind of turnover the Astros have faced:

25-Man Roster, March 31

Jose Altuve
Hector Ambriz
Rick Ankiel: Designated for assignment on May 6 
Brandon Barnes
Erik Bedard
Chris Carter
Jason Castro
Ronny Cedeno: Designated for assignment, July 21 
Xavier Cedeno: Claimed off waivers by the Nationals, April 23 
Carlos Corporan
Rhiner Cruz: Optioned to Oklahoma City, May 2 
Matt Dominguez
Josh Fields
Edgar Gonzalez: Designated for assignment, April 5; Re-signed by team on May 12, currently on DL. 
Marwin Gonzalez: Optioned to Oklahoma City, June 24 
Lucas Harrell: Sent to bullpen, July 7
Phil Humber: Placed on waivers, cleared, sent to OKC on May 17
Fernando Martinez: Designated for assignment on May 6
J.D. Martinez
Bud Norris
Brad Peacock: Optioned to Oklahoma City, May 2
Carlos Pena: Designated for assignment, July 21
Jose Veras
Brett Wallace
Alex White: Placed on the 60-Day DL
Wesley Wright

So that's 11 members of the Opening Day roster who are not on the July 22 25-Man roster. Seven of those 25 men were designated for assignment or placed on waivers. Three were sent back to the minors, and Alex White had Tommy John surgery.

Forgot Cosart and Villar, if we are talking all the guys that are called up and down.

Nope. The above is the 25-Man Opening Day roster.

Wasn't Brett Wallace on the opening day roster? Got sent down and came back?

Less swearing, Astros County. Not sure why you would be unhappy to have Pena and Cedeno released. This is what was going to happen the whole time. The front office took on short-term contracts on the cheap, hoping to catch lightning in a bottle then trade them at the trade deadline. Probably a 1 in 5 chance of success. Goodbye Ankiel, Fernandez, Pena and Cedeno, but hello Bedard, who should be a pretty reasonable trade chip (well at least until he couldn't throw 170 pitches to complete his no-hitter). Bedard has been pretty damn good recently.

To me, this means that there was very little in the way of trade interest for either player. :-( oh well, no prospects back.
