Because how can you not love a baseball player named "Bubba"?
Lance Pendleton says it's always been his dream to play for his hometown Astros. And apparently, they liked him, too. Though they didn't want to commit to keeping him on the roster all year after taking him via Rule 5, they did try to work out a trade with the Yankees. The Yankees preferred to keep him, but DFA'd him on Tuesday, and the Astros ended up getting him for free.
The article says Pendleton will pitch out of the Astros pen the rest of the year, but so far, he is not on the active roster. He's listed on the 40-man, but not on the active roster.
Good luck to you, Lance.
Here are a few photos I took of him at a SWB Yankees game on August 7.
