TCB's own TRosser92 found the scoop of the day on twitter this morning, as a source told him that free agent outfield Colby Rasmus was in Houston, literally across the street from Minute Maid Park.

Well, his sleuthing started the wheels turning. SB Nation's Chris Cotillo confirmed Houston's interest from earlier in the winter.

Then, the national guys chimed in.

Yep, they even credited TCB.

Brian McTaggart and Mark Berman both confirm that Rasmus is in Houston for a physical with the Astros, but reports that no deal is imminent. Tags also has some quotes from Rasmus about why the free agent is intrigued by the Astros.

More on this as it develops.

UPDATE:

CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports the Astros have signed Colby Rasmus.
