Jose Cisnero On His Way To Houston To Replace Brett Oberholtzer

J. Meric

Astros minor league pitcher Jose Cisnero is on his way to Houston.

Good morning. This morning we get word from Brian McTaggart that Jose Cisnero is on his way to Houston:

I'm pretty sure someone in the comments called this move, unfortunately, I don't remember who so I can't give them their due here.

Jose Cisnero is a 24 year old right-handed pitcher who has been in the Astros system since 2008. He's appeared in three games, one start, for Oklahoma City giving up 10 runs, nine earned, in 8.2 inning. Of course, it's early in the season and pitchers ERA often times are a volatile thing.

In the minor leagues Cisnero has struck out just over a batter an inning and walked just over four per nine innings mostly out of the rotation. Who Cisnero replaces in the bullpen has yet to be determined.

Rhiner Cruz and Brett Oberholtzer stick out as two pitchers I could see being optioned for Cisnero but as with any Luhnow transaction all bets are off.

Update: Per McTaggart Brett Oberholtzer is optioned to Oklahoma City

Here's an interesting tidbit from Brian T. Smith

I'm going to go out on a limb and say that Jose Cisnero will probably be optioned within the week.
