In a surprise move (to me, anyway) the Astros designated Brett Wallace for assignment to make room for Jerome Williams on the 40-Man roster.
The Astros have ten days to trade, release, or outright Wallace to OKC.

When it comes down to the roster construction...we have to make again the best decision for the Houston Astros today with a watchful eye on tomorrow.
In parts of four seasons with the Astros, Wallace has hit .242/.313/.391, with 318K in 1077 PAs. This is odd, since in parts of five seasons at Triple-A, Wallace posted a .308/.375/.500 line with 349K in 1607 PAs.
Also in the mix at 1B is Jesus Guzman, Chris Carter, and possibly Jon Singleton.
