The Astros have released 27-year old righty reliever/starter Cesar Carrillo. Carrillo pitched in 5 games (0 starts) in AAA-ball for the Astros this year and he was 1-1 with a 9.62 ERA and a 2.04 WHIP. He gave up 12 hits (2 homers) and walked 7 batters in only 9 1/3 innings which caused the Astros to pull the plug on him. Carrillo’s only major league experience came back in 2009 with the Padres and it didn’t go too well. Carrillo pitched in 3 games (all starts) for the Padres in 2009 and he was 1-2 with a 13.06 ERA and a 2.71 WHIP. No loss here for the Astros.
