Cardinals Roster: Astros Claim RHP Chuckie Fick From St. Louis

The MLB.com beat writer for the Houston Astros, Brian McTaggart, is reporting the St. Louis Cardinals have lost bullpen rookie RHP Chuckie Fick:

Fick, 26, made his major league debut with the Cardinals earlier this season and has appeared in two games, pitching 1 and 2/3 innings. He started the season in the Triple-A, where he had a 4.68 ERA and 5.09 FIP through 42 and 1/3 innings.

He was designated for assignment on Wednesday to open a 40-man roster spot for the recently-signed LHP Brian Fuentes, who was released by the Oakland Athletics earlier in the season.
