Astros Looking At Rusch, Jennings

UPDATE, 12-17-07 at 7:50pm: Rusch’s agency verified to my via email that he became a Padre as of Friday.

FROM 12-17-07 at 3:39pm:

The Houston Chronicle’s Brian McTaggart notes the Astros’ interest in starters Glendon Rusch and Jason Jennings.

  • Wait a minute, you’re saying, didn’t Tim Brown report on Friday that Rusch signed a minor-league deal with San Diego?  Indeed he did.  However, Tag says he hasn’t signed yet and Houston still has an offer on the table.
  • The Astros would like to get Jennings back on a one-year, incentivized deal.  Jennings wants two years, despite his lost ’07.  Not sure if anyone will be open to that.  Maybe one year with a club option.
  • It’s been reported previously that the Astros were one of the teams contacting free agent Mark Prior.
