    Call him up. Worst he could do is 0-17.

    Too early to ask who is eligible for next Rule V draft?

    Great return for Fields. Jankowski, Hoyt, Gustave, McCurry, plus more all equal to Fields, good move for Luhnow.

    Wow, shrewd move by Luhnow.

    Astros were definitely sellers this trade season. They traded guys who were taking up space and had lost favor with the coaching staff. Feldman had a good ERA, but a reliever isn't worth the type of money he was making.

    Josh Field had his chances, but never capitalized on it fully. I had hopes he'd of become the closer, but it just never happened.

    I'd guess Hoyt gets a roster slot come September.

    Teoscar Hernandez probably also deserves a slot with his current mashing.

    They were eligible last year, so yes. Not many 1st time eligible.

    Worth protecting or not much of a chance they get taken?

    Rodgers, yes. Heineman, probably not, though I like him.
