Astros Claim Reliever on Waivers


The Astros claimed 24 year old RHP Blake King off waivers from the Cardinals.  King was on the AAA roster of the Cardinals and was lost on waivers when he was removed from the 40 man roster.  The Astros will assign King to the AA Hooks team.  King's performance in AAA (13 innings) this year was terrible.  Walks appeared to be a big problem.  But it is a small sample, so maybe he has a mechanical issue that needs to be fixed.  King was tremendous out of the pen in AA last year, with a K rate over 11 per 9 innings.  Baseball America rated his slider as best in the Texas League in 2010.

Any Hooks' fan remember King from the Texas League last year?
