Astros DFA Borkowski, Sign Jorge Sosa

To make room for Wandy Rodriguez‘s return from the DL tonight, the Astros designated reliever Dave Borkowski for assignment.  They also signed righty Jorge Sosa to a minor league deal.

Borkowski, 31, makes $800K this year.  His 2.67 K/BB (21 innings) this year wasn’t bad, but he allowed too many hits and home runs.

Sosa, 30, was designated for assignment and then released by the Mets earlier this year.  $2MM down the tubes for the Mets.
