The definition of a defense-first catcher, Cash has put together a horrendous .183/.248/.278 batting line over eight big league seasons. He'll likely be given a shot to compete for the backup job in spring training.

Astros purchased the contract of C Kevin Cash from Triple-A Round Rock.

Cash, 32, was batting .174/.208/.174 over 23 at-bats with Triple-A Round Rock. The veteran receiver has a similarly putrid .186/.248/.287 batting line in the major leagues, so he should fit right in with the Astros. He'll function as the primarly backup to Humberto Quintero until Jason Castro is deemed ready, likely after Memorial Day.

Astros reassigned C Jason Castro, C Kevin Cash, RHP Casey Daigle, RHP Gary Majewski, RHP Gustavo Chacin, IF Drew Meyer and 1B Chris Shelton to minor league camp; optioned RHP Wilton Lopez, IF Edwin Maysonet to Triple-A Round Rock.

J.R. Towles and Humberto Quintero have captured the two catching spots on the Astros' Opening Day roster, though it's not clear which one will start. Castro is one of the top prospects in the organization and could be recalled quickly if Towles and Quintero struggle out of the gate.

Yankees purchased the contract of catcher Kevin Cash from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

Cash takes the injured Jose Molina's place, and with Jorge Posada out as well, has a chance to claim some significant playing time behind the plate. Still, with a .184 career batting average, you should have better options.
