Astros Claim Chuckie Fick

The Astros claimed right-hander Chuckie Fick off of waivers from the Cardinals, Jenifer Langosch of MLB.com reports (on Twitter). The Cardinals had designated Fick for assignment two days ago. Houston confirmed the move, noting that their 40-man roster is now full.

Fick, 26, appeared in two games for the Cardinals before they removed him from their roster. He spent most of the season at Triple-A, where he posted a 4.68 ERA with 4.3 K/9 and 2.8 BB/9 in 42 1/3 innings. Astros GM Jeff Luhnow selected Fick in the 15th round of the amateur draft back in 2007, when he was the Cardinals' VP of scouting and player development.

Did the Astros go back to the 1920’s to pick this guy up?

Seriously what a great Baseball name!

That may not be a bad idea. They need all the talent they can get.

The Astros’ play-by-play guys are going to be walking on egg shells trying not to mess his name up.

I live in Memphis and saw a lot games he pitched with the Memphis Redbirds. He’s not spectacular but he’s a good guy, and I hope he does well with the Astros organization.
