HOUSTON (CBS Houston): A tough night got even tougher for Lucas Harrell on Tuesday.

Following the team’s 4-2 loss to the Kansas City Royals, starting pitcher Lucas Harrell was to be designated for assignment, according to reports.

Harrell has struggled mightily again this season, now 0-3 with an ERA of 9.49.  Harrell has managed to only go a total of 12.1 innings in his 3 starts this year.

Harrell has now lost his last 8 decisions, dating back to last year, and led the American League  in losses last year with 17.

Starter Scott Feldman is due to return from the bereavement list on Thursday.
