The Houston Astros have signed Ryan Sadowski, a 27 year-old right-hander who made his major league debut with Giants last season. Sadowski was unexpectedly impressive upon arrival, tossing 13 shutout innings in his first two starts. However, he eventually faded, earning a record of 2-4 with a 4.45 ERA. He was subsequently sent back down to the minors.

The ‘Big Sadowski’, a six-year minor league veteran, finally got to the majors when the Giants called him up to start against the Brewers in Milwaukee on June 28th. Thursday, the former 12th-round Giants’ draft pick signed with the Houston Astros.

This isn’t a bad move by the Astros. The team has the bats, but they obviously need more quality arms. Sadowski just needs the opportunity to prove himself over the long haul and the Astros are willing to make that happen. Of course, the pitching is a tad crowded over in the Giants’ camp, so Sadowski was up for grabs.
