Krauss called up

The Houston Astros called up first baseman/outfielder Marc Krauss from the RedHawks in time for Friday's game against the Cubs. Krauss made his major league debut at Wrigley Field, and struck out swinging in the eighth inning. He was hitting .277 with nine homers and 35 RBIs with the RedHawks. He was brought up to replace Trevor Crowe, who went on the 15-day DL with a right shoulder injury.

Briefly

To make room on the 40-man roster for Krauss, the Astros designated pitcher Ross Seaton for assignment. Seaton was 2-6 with an 8.64 ERA during 11 games (10 starts) with the Redhawks. ... Astros right-hander Edgar Gonzalez began a rehab assignment with Oklahoma City. Gonzalez went on the 15-day disabled list with a right shoulder strain May 26.

Up next

The RedHawks open a four-day, six-game homestand against Omaha at 7:05 p.m. Saturday night at Chickasaw Bricktown Ballpark. Brett Oberholtzer (4-6, 5.37 ERA) gets the start for OKC. Justin Marks (1-7, 6.29) will take the mound for the Storm Chasers.
