ST. LOUIS (BaseballStL) -- The Houston Astros claimed former Cardinals call-up Chuckie Fick on waivers on Friday.
The move comes two days after Fick was designated for assignment to help make room for the Cardinals to promote Brian Fuentes from Springfield.
Fick allowed one earned run over 1.2 innings pitched in two appearances with the Cardinals this year.
The 26-year-old was drafted by the Cardinals in the 15th round of the amateur draft in 2007.
