The Astros are going to announce … something tomorrow

I have no idea what. But I actually got a press release from the Houston Astros which foretold of a coming announcement. As most press releases I get actually say what those announcements may be, this one is kinda interesting:

source:

“Enos Cabell — Astros Legend.” OK, have it your way.

Anyway: Until told otherwise, I’m going to assume it’s about them moving back into the Astrodome or something like it.

Mark Feinsand of MLB.com reports that Colby Rasmus has agreed to a minor league deal with the Baltimore Orioles.

Rasmus, 31, played only 37 games with the Rays last year. The reason: the previous offseason he underwent surgery to repair his left hip labrum and his core muscle, and the hip continued to bother him throughout spring training. He began the season on the disabled list and made his debut on May 2, hitting .281/.318/.579 in 129 plate appearances before going back on the DL June 23. He’d never return, “stepping away” from the game in the words of the club, which placed him on the restricted list for the remainder of the season.
