Rowland-Smith Remains With Astros

Pitcher Ryan Rowland-Smith cleared waivers, elected free agency, and re-signed with the Astros on a minor league deal according to this tweet from Alyson Footer.  The Astros signed Rowland-Smith to a big league deal in December, so these machinations allow him to remain with the organization without taking up a spot on the 25 or 40-man rosters.  He can join the Oklahoma City RedHawks in Triple-A and await a potential opening with the big club.
