Astros Waiver Wire

According to Ken Rosenthal (h/t MLB Trade Rumors) both Loretta and Lamb were claimed on waivers and subsequently pulled back, so they can’t be traded before the Aug. 31 deadline to set playoff rosters. Rosenthal says the Astros are likely to try to re-sign Loretta, which I think is a bad idea. But what do I know? No word about any other Astros players. I wonder if someone like Jason Jennings might have cleared waivers. MLB doesn’t announce the information publicly, so we have to rely on reporters for info like that. It’s not likely that another team would want him now, but if a starting pitcher on a contending team goes down in the next two weeks, he might draw interest.
