Astros Designate Joe Inglett For Assignment

The Astros designated Joe Inglett for assignment to create roster space for Clint Barmes, according to MLB.com's Brian McTaggart. Barmes was hit by a pitch in Spring Training and has now recovered from a fractured hand.

Inglett hit .208/.208/.250 in 24 plate appearances for the Astros, who acquired him from the Rays this spring. The 32-year-old appeared in 102 games for the Brewers last year, hitting .254/.331/.401 and playing second base, left field and right field. He has also played shortstop, third base and center field over the course of his six-year MLB career. The left-handed hitter has a .286/.345/.397 line in the majors.

Barmes has not appeared in a big league game for the Astros since they acquired him for Felipe Paulino last November. He hit .235/.305/.351 in 432 plate appearances for Colorado last year, playing short, second and third.

I remember when the jays let him go and people flipped their lid.

I remember that too. He was hot for a while but everyone in Toronto thought he was the second coming. When what he really is is a jack of all trades. Nothing to see here.

Too bad, he really seemed to make that infield fresh. I guess he really is disposable. I bet he’ll mop up in the minors.

Darn, and here I was hoping he could be the PTBN that we sent back to the Rays for himself.

What a waste of a signing…

In my copy of ‘Out of the Park Baseball’ he’s my starting 2B with a slashline of something like .270/.330/.400. He also has a sick goatee. Joe Inglett must be one of those guys who’s better in theory than in practice.
