Astros Minor League Recap

I'm sure most of you know now that Lucas Harrell has been called-up to make a start fro Brett Myers.  Ed Wade said that Harrell was going to be called up anyway in September so he will be staying with the club afterwards.  To take his spot in the AAA rotation, Paul Clemens has been called up to AAA.  To take his spot in the AA rotation, Jake Buchanan has been called up.  I haven't seen anything on a possible replacement for Buchanan. 

These aren't your normal promotions.  These are simply to fill rotation spots.  Although, it does give some indication whom the Astros think is the most advanced of the pitchers at those levels and feel who could handle the next level for a start or two.  Clemens is no surprise.  Buchanan is a little as you could make a case for both Cisnero and Robinson.  Although, Cisnero is on the DL and Robinson was supposed to pitch today, so you would have had to move other pitchers up on short rest.

Jarred Cosart had another great outing last night.  He had the strikeouts to go with his innings pitched last night which has been a knock on him.  His numbers caught up with his stuff last night.  Although, he didn't have the extreme groundball to flyout ratio we have gotten used to seeing from.
