Astros designated C Tim Federowicz for assignment.

Brian McCann is back from the disabled list, so there's no longer a need for Federowicz. He'll surely clear waivers and can declare free agency at that point if he wants.
Jun 8 - 4:03 PM

Astros purchased the contract of C Tim Federowicz from Triple-A Fresno.

He'll replace the injured Brian McCann (knee) and serve as Max Stassi's backup behind the plate. The 30-year-old Federowicz had five homers with a .991 OPS through 29 games in Triple-A this year, but he's a .196/.245/.313 career hitter in the majors. He's unlikely to be fantasy relevant. The Astros will have to make a move to clear a spot for him on the 40-man roster.

The 30-year-old catcher saw just 14 plate appearances with the Giants in 2017, slashing .231/.286/.692 with a pair of homers and three RBI. He still offers valuable catching depth, so he shouldn't have difficulty finding a new club this winter.

Tim Federowicz didn't start Tuesday's game at Arizona, but he came on as a defensive replacement and finished 2-for-3 with a two-run home run.

Federowicz has just 12 at-bats in limited action, but he has reached the seats twice. He has been working as the third catcher and is only likely to be organizational depth heading into 2018.
