Houston Astros Release Woody Williams

HOUSTON -- The Houston Astros announced today that the club has asked for waivers on right-handed pitcher Woody Williams for the purpose of giving him his unconditional release. The announcement was made by general manager Ed Wade.

It's sad to see Woody go, but it needed to happen. This means that Sampson will indeed be the 5th starter for the Astros... at least for now.
