Astros Designate Luis Durango For Assignment

The Astros announced that they have designated outfielder Luis Durango for assignment. They have called outfielder J.B. Shuck up from Triple-A in a corresponding move.

The Astros claimed Durango from the Padres in June and he pitcked up a single and a walk in seven plate appearances for Houston. He appeared in 28 games as a backup center fielder for the Padres last year and had a .243/.328/.294 line with 10 stolen bases at Triple-A Tucson before Houston claimed him.

Shuck, 24, has yet to appear in the Major Leagues. The 2008 draft pick has a .302/.401/.375 line at Triple-A and was a Pacific Coast League All-Star this year.
