Jared Hughes granted release from Astros

Pitcher Jared Hughes asked for and was granted his release from the Astros organization on Thursday, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports. Hughes signed a minor league deal with the club last month.

Hughes, 34, had a forgettable spring before play was suspended. The right-hander yielded four runs on five hits and three walks with four strikeouts over 5 2/3 innings. Last season, with the Reds and Phillies, the veteran posted a 4.04 ERA with 54 strikeouts and 27 walks across 71 1/3 innings.

Before injury exam, Munoz left team without notice and flew home, so Cardinals released him

JUPITER, Fla. — In a bizarre twist to the Cardinals’ competition for a spot on the bench, Yairo Munoz bolted the team without notice, flew home to the Dominican Republic, and left the Cardinals unsure when, or if, he would return.

So they made the decision for him Saturday morning.

The Cardinals gave Munoz, their utility infielder the previous two years, his unconditional release, allowing him to become a free agent. It is unclear where that leaves Munoz as far as interest from other teams because he went AWOL before he had a hamstring injury examined by the Cardinals. The move leaves the Cardinals with an open spot on the 40-man roster, and it gives an open avenue for players like Tommy Edman, Brad Miller, and prospect Edmundo Sosa to secure or compete for roles on the 26-man roster.

Manager Mike Shildt called Munoz’s departure and lack of communication with the team “baffling.”

Well, you don’t see something like this every day…..
