KISSIMMEE, Fla.—The Houston Astros gave infielder Brett Wallace his unconditional release on Wednesday.
The 27-year-old Wallace played with the Astros for four years, mostly at first base and also at third base. He played in 79 games last season, batting .221 with 13 home runs. In eight games this spring, Wallace was 2-for-14 with eight strikeouts.
That leaves first basemen Chris Carter and rookie Jon Singleton on the roster. The Astros have 51 players remaining in camp, including 16 non-roster invitees.
Catcher Jason Castro is the only player on the current roster who has been with the Astros continuously longer than Wallace.
What teams need an ‘upgrade’ at 1B?? How many of them would consider Wallace an upgrade….I can think of only one team!
