David Newhan Re-Signs With Astros

THURSDAY: The Astros signed Newhan to a minor league deal.  He'll compete for a backup infield job.

FRIDAY: Brian McTaggart talked to Astros GM Ed Wade, who said David Newhan could rejoin the team on a minor league contract.  That seems to be all Wade has cooking; here's what he said:

"Otherwise, we're not talking to anybody else. If things fall in our lap we have to think about — it's got to be something of a front-line nature — but I think we're covered with regard to competition at positions.  In the existing player payroll budget, there is no more to cover anything of significance."

Newhan, 35, hit .308/.355/.535 in Triple A and .260/.297/.404 for the Astros.  He'd contend for a backup infield job.
