Astros Designate Wade LeBlanc For Assignment

The Astros announced that they have designated pitcher Wade LeBlanc for assignment.  The move, coupled with catcher Carlos Corporan's placement on the seven-day concussion disabled list, will allow Triple-A right-hander David Martinez and Double-A catcher Max Stassi to join the big league squad. 

LeBlanc, 29, had a rough time in four relief appearances for the Astros this season.  For his career, LeBlanc owns a career 4.51 ERA with 6.1 K/9 and 3.3 BB/9 in parts of six seasons with the Padres, Marlins, and Astros.
