Burke brought up, Lane sent back down

New, 6 comments

As many of you probably already know, Chris Burke is once again a member of the Houston Astros big league club... Jason Lane has been sent down to clear up a spot for Burke and has also cleared waivers.

Chris Burke will take Lane's spot in the platoon spot with Luke Scott. I can only assume that Burke will get more chances to play then Lane did. Burke will also get some starts at 2nd base and possibly SS. Burke only hit .250 in Round Rock, but he has been pretty good lately(I think I heard he was 7 for his last 17 on the radio) raising his average from ~.165. I'm sad to see Lane go, but happy to see Burke back up. Maybe Burke being back up will help Lance as well, being they are pretty good buds.
