Farewell, Rudy and Pat. We hardly knew thee....

According to Matt Eddy of Baseball America (twitter links):

LHP Rudy Owens signed a minor-league deal with Oakland.  He was outrighted off the 40-man in the post-season purge after throwing 5-and-two-thirds in the majors with Houston.

LHP Pat Urckfitz signed a minor-league deal with Miami.  He never made it to the 40-man, but he tested my typing skills when I was doing minor-league recaps.

Best of luck, gents.  Just don't bring your best stuff should you run into Houston at some stage in the future.
