Astros | More On Hubbard

The Houston Chronicle reports Houston Astros OF Trenidad Hubbard was signed to a minor-league contract mainly for insurance in the outfield. "He's a veteran guy who's played all over the world and came through the organization, so we know him fairly well," Astros general manager Tim Purpura said. "He provides an option for us both as an insurance policy at Triple-A and if something happens at spring training. I don't think he changes the mix a whole lot."
