Player Notes
Astros released LHP Joe Thatcher.

Advice: Thatcher was designated for assignment a week ago despite a decent 3.79 ERA with 22 strikeouts over 19 innings this season. He obviously has his limitations as a left-handed specialist, but someone will pick him up.

Astros designated LHP Joe Thatcher for assignment.

Advice: The move clears a spot for Vince Velasquez on the active roster. Thatcher has struggled a bit recently, but owns a decent 3.79 ERA with 22 strikeouts over 19 innings this season in a specialist role. He could draw interest on waivers.
