• Astros add Farnsworth, option Clemens

    Summary of 3 articles · Updated May 17, 2014
    With the addition of Farnsworth, the Astros' roster is now full at 40. The Houston Astros have signed reliever Kyle Farnsworth to a major-league deal. The Astros’ bullpen saw more shuffling Saturday morning, with veteran righthander Kyle Farnsworth agreeing to terms just days after being released by the New York Mets, and Paul Clemens being optioned to Class AAA Oklahoma City to make room on the active roster. Farnsworth, who has been used in high-leverage situations throughout his 16-year career, including serving as the Mets’ closer this season, will be in uniform for Saturday night’s game against the Chicago White Sox at Minute Maid Park, according to a statement released by the Astros. Clemens, 26, has a 4.08 ERA while appearing in eight major league games this season, most recently tossing 2 1/3 innings in Friday’s 7-2 loss to the White Sox. He had agreed to an "advance consent" agreement that allowed the Mets to dump him within 45 days of being added to the roster and avoid paying the full-year salary.
