Good for Maxwell...
 

Astros Claim Justin Maxwell Off Waivers



The Astros have claimed outfielder Justin Maxwell off of waivers from the Yankees, the club announced. Maxwell will report to the Major League club on Monday and the Astros will make a corresponding roster move after he reports.  Houston's 40-man roster now stands at 39.


Maxwell, 28, was out-of-options and designated for assignment by the Bombers on Wednesday.  The outfielder saw his 2011 season cut short with an injured shoulder but hit .260/.358/.588 with 16 homers in Triple-A up until that point. 


The Yankees acquired Maxwell from the Nationals in February for minor league right-hander Adam Olbrychowski.  The Astros and the Orioles were said to have interest in Maxwell prior to Opening Day.

Always proud to be a Yankee fan.

Good for him.  The guy certainly has some tools if he could cut down on his strikeouts.  With such a bad team he'll probably get some playing time.

This team couldn't score in a whorehouse.

Good for him.  He probably needs a fresh start, and that might be a place where he can get another shot.

He's playing for an awful team, I doubt it.

He's fulfilling a dream though, he's playing a game he loves and getting paid at a major league salary now, something he wasn't getting being a NY Yankee..

That's nice and all but he isn't going to make the Yankees regret not keeping him.
