Designated for assignment earlier this week, reliever Lance Pendleton has been claimed by the Houston Astros.

This will be, essentially, Pendleton’s second stint with the Astros. He was with them in spring training after being selected in the Rule 5 draft, but Houston sent Pendleton back to the Yankees shortly before Opening Day and he was in New York by early April.

Perpetually overshadowed in the Yankees pitching-rich system, Pendleton had a 3.21 ERA as a big league long man. He had a 3.10 in Triple-A this season, and he has a 3.36 in his minor league career.
