Houston (CBS Houston)– The Houston Astros General Manager Jeff Luhnow announced Wednesday that they’ve acquired right-handed pitcher Anthony Bass from the San Diego Padres for a player to be named later or cash considerations as the franchise continues to rebuild.

Bass, 26, will serve as a useful arm pitching 42.0 innings, across four stints out of the Padres bullpen in 2013.  In 2012, Bass had a 2-8 record and a 4.73 ERA in 97 innings, with 80 strike-outs against 39 walks. He has struggled with shoulder problems after 2011.

The Padres will receive a player to be named later or cash considerations for the exchange, making the Astros 40-man roster stand at 38.
