Ronny Cedeno Signs With Houston Astros

In an bid to seaside adult a shortstop position, a Houston Astros sealed Ronny Cedeno on Saturday. The 30-year aged shortstop now joins Tyler Greene and Marwin Gonzalez in an bid to find a starter after final year’s starter Jed Lowrie was traded to Oakland behind in February.

Cedeno strike .259/.332/.410 final deteriorate in 78 games with a Mets and has played for 3 teams in an eight-year career. Cedeno has a repute as a good defensive shortstop, posting 6.1 Fielding Runs in 2011 with a Pirates. He doesn’t offer most in a approach of attack or a sold aptitude for a leadoff spot, given his career travel rate is 5.3 percent.

However, Cedeno has played second, third and shortstop in his career, as good as a little bit in a outfield early in his time with a Cubs. If Houston doesn’t consider Tyler Greene will produce, they could collect adult Cedeno and use possibly him or Marwin Gonzalez as a application infielder and urge a altogether efficacy of a brood of sinkerball pitchers they have on this stream patrol (maybe).

What do we think? Is this a required addition? Will Cedeno give Houston some coherence on a infield or will he be Triple-A depth? Do we consider Luhnow and Co. are finished perplexing to repair a shortstop mark or will they make some-more moves before a finish of camp?
