Right-hander Lucas Harrell went from looking like he might be part of the Astros’ long-term plans in 2012 to being designated for assignment this season, and now the Diamondbacks have released him from Triple-A.

Harrell was traded from Houston to Arizona in April, but posted a 5.15 ERA in 22 starts at Triple-A without making it back to the majors.

Harrell threw 194 innings with a 3.76 ERA for the Astros in 2012, but since then he has a combined 6.13 ERA in 166 innings as a big leaguer and has struggled with extreme control problems.

    I suppose the silver lining here is that players who have left Arizona in recent years have fared pretty well.
