Samuel Deduno elected free agency.
Deduno was outrighted off the Astros' 40-man roster earlier this month. He struggled with a hip injury for much of 2015 and wound up with a 6.86 ERA in 21 innings, but there should be a minor league deal out there somewhere for him. Deduno, 32, owns a 4.38 ERA in 314 1/3 career major league frames. Nov 19 - 11:31 AM

Astros activated RHP Samuel Deduno from the 60-day disabled list.

Perhaps mercifully, August hip surgery spelled the end of Deduno's 2015 season, a season that saw him post a 6.86 ERA when healthy. He'll likely be battling for a bullpen spot next spring.

Astros transferred RHP Samuel Deduno to the 60-day disabled list.

The right-hander underwent season-ending hip surgery on Friday and will miss the remainder of the season. The move was made to create a spot on the 40-man roster for the newly-acquired Oliver Perez.

Samuel Deduno will undergo season-ending arthroscopic surgery on his right hip.

It's a labrum repair. Deduno was told in early June that he could probably avoid surgery, but the injury wasn't healing quickly enough on its own. It's not clear what the future holds for the 32-year-old right-hander.

Samuel Deduno has been shut down and will visit a hip specialist on Monday.

Deduno was placed on the disabled list a couple weeks ago with what was called a lower back strain at the time, but the pain is actually more focused on his hip. More should be known about his timetable after Monday's exam.
May 31 - 12:11 PM

May 20 - 10:01 AM

Astros placed RHP Samuel Deduno on the 15-day disabled list with a lower back strain.

Deduno has posted an ugly 6.86 ERA, 1.57 WHIP, and 17/9 K/BB ratio in 21 innings this season for Houston. Top pitching prospect Lance McCullers is making his major league debut on Monday night against the A's and could be stick around if the outing goes well. Deduno will likely work in long relief when his health returns.
May 18 - 3:08 PM

Samuel Deduno was left in to give up 10 runs in 4 2/3 innings versus the Rangers on Wednesday.

Well, that's not very nice. The Astros were short-handed in the pen tonight and thus left him in to take the beating that raised his ERA from 2.70 to 7.00. Deduno was making his second straight start, but he'll probably return to the pen next time through.
