Phil Humber: Claimed By Astros

Rotowire.com
Update: Humber, who was claimed off waivers by the Astros on Friday, is expected to compete for one of the final spots in the starting rotation come spring, MLB.com reports.

Recommendation: After being claimed Friday, Humber inked a one-year deal with the Astros that includes a club option for 2014. His 2012 season went downhill fast after his perfect game in April, but he'll look to turn the page next season. "As far as the way things went last year -- there were obviously some extreme highs and getting hurt and not pitching the way I was capable of -- I'm excited about the opportunity to get back out there and prove I'm capable of being a good Major League pitcher," Humber said Friday.
