Astros optioned LHP Luis Cruz to Triple-A Oklahoma City.
Cruz, a 5-foot-9 left-hander, was protected from the Rule 5 Draft after he posted a 4.56 ERA and 150/44 K/BB ratio over 130 1/3 innings last season between High-A Lancaster and Double-A Corpus Christi. His secondary numbers were better than the results suggest, so the Astros are hoping the 23-year-old will continue to progress. Mar 10 - 2:20 PM

Date:

Astros purchased the contract of LHP Luis Cruz from Double-A Corpus Christi.

The former ninth-round pick logged a 4.56 ERA and 1.23 WHIP across two levels (High-A Lancaster, in addition to Corpus Christi) this past season. He stands only 5-foot-9, 170 pounds, but he's a 23-year-old lefty that has shown just enough promise for Houston to protect him from inclusion in next month's Rule 5 Draft.
