Astros Designate Storey For Assignment

The Astros announced that they designated right-hander Mickey Storey for assignment. The move creates 40-man roster space for Carlos Pena, who officially signed with Houston today.

The Yankees claimed Storey off of waivers from Houston on November 20th, only to designate him for assignment in early December. Houston then claimed Storey back off of waivers, but he's now losing his 40-man roster spot again.

Storey made 26 relief appearances for the Astros this past season. The 26-year-old posted a 3.86 ERA with 10.1 K/9 and 3.0 BB/9 in 30 1/3 innings at the MLB level. He also spent considerable time at Triple-A in 2012, posting a 3.05 ERA with 10.0 K/9 and 1.9 BB/9 in 65 innings.
