By designating Josh Banks for assignment, the Astros have solidified their rotation… for the time being, writes the Houston Chronicle 's Bernardo Fallas .
Here's how the rotation stacks up while Felipe Paulino recovers from shoulder tendinitis: Bud Norris faces the Brewers today, followed by Brett Myers and Wandy Rodriguez. Brian Moehler will pitch Thursday in San Diego, followed by Roy Oswalt, who is still an Astro at this point, but that could change.
Moehler and Banks had a one-off for the No. 5 spot this weekend against the Astros. Moehler went five innings and allowed three runs (two earned) and picked up the win on Friday, while Banks lasted just four-plus innings and allowed six runs, all earned, in his outing.
Paulino cannot be activated until July 6 at the earliest.
