The Yankees claimed Storey off waivers just after Thanksgiving, but they placed him on waivers a week later with the hopes of keeping him, but removing him from the 40-man roster. Today he was claimed off waivers by the Houston Astros which is also the team that released him two weeks ago.
It’s too bad too because while Storey is not a big name prospect or anything he did have some potential. He’ll be 27 next season and has a career 3.86 ERA with a 10.1 K/9 and a 3.0 BB/9 in 30.1 major league innings. In the minors he had a 3.13 ERA, a 9.4 K/9 and a 2.5 BB/9.
