The Astros added a pitcher to the stable by claiming left-hander Wade LeBlanc off of waivers. The Marlins had put him on waivers on Sunday after he recorded five outs in relief of Kevin Slowey against the Mets. Overall, LeBlanc posted a 5.18 ERA in 48.2 innings this season. Pitching in between the rotation and bullpen last year with the Marlins, he finished with a 3.67 ERA in 68.2 innings.

The Astros official Twitter reports the team will make a roster decision to make room for LeBlanc when he joins them in Kansas City tomorrow.

    Anytime a guy who did well last season does badly enough to be cut by the Feesh, you have to suspect that he planned it this way. I think you could make more of a case for that based on circumstantial evidence than you could for the verity of the napkin records from Bufogenesis. In any case, good luck, Wade. You deserved better than to work for Scrooge McLoria and the Chihuahua, and you finally got it – though, of course, the improvement is merely incremental.
