Astros claim Will Harris off waivers from Diamondbacks

Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic reports that the Astros have claimed right-hander Will Harris off waivers from the Diamondbacks.

Harris is 29 years old and has been passed around the waiver wire quite a bit during his career, but he’s also got a 3.42 ERA with 88 strikeouts in 82 innings for the Diamondbacks since 2013.

Despite that success Harris spent much of this season at Triple-A, where he posted a 0.99 ERA in 46 innings, and combined in 75 career innings at Triple-A he’s got a 1.56 ERA and 87 strikeouts.

Seems like a decent pickup and possibly useful middle reliever for Houston.
