Padres sign Hector Ambriz to minor-league contract
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

The Padres have signed pitcher Hector Ambriz to a minor-league contract, MLB.com reports.

Ambriz made 43 appearances with the Astros last season but struggled, finishing with a 2-4 record, 5.70 ERA and 27:14 K:BB ratio in 36 1/3 innings. He'll likely provide depth to the team's Triple-A bullpen.

Looking at the Astros' closer candidates
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

The Astros have yet to name a closer to replace Jose Veras, who they traded to the Tigers Monday, and if I had to guess, I'd say they go with a committee to start out. Hector Ambriz and Josh Fields were both mentioned as candidates this spring, and you have to figure Wesley Wright will factor against lefties.

But inevitably, every committee leads to one guy stepping up and claiming the role for himself, and the obvious candidate to do that here is Jose Cisnero. He's a hard-thrower with strikeout-per-inning stuff, and though his 3.48 ERA and 1.48 WHIP don't seem like anything special, both are skewed by a particularly ugly outing on May 11 in which he gave up eight hits and six earned runs in 2 2/3 innings. Remove it from the equation, and he has a 2.33 ERA and 1.34 WHIP on the year.

Still not impressed? Yeah, OK. Well, everyone left in the Astros bullpen has a high ERA and WHIP, which is probably the takeaway here. Though Cisnero is the reliever to target in deep leagues where saves are nowhere to be found on the waiver wire, you probably shouldn't bother with him outside of those leagues.
