KISSIMMEE, Fla. (AP) The Houston Astros gave infielder Brett Wallace his unconditional release on Wednesday.
The 27-year-old Wallace played with the Astros for four years, mostly at first base and also at third base. He played in 79 games last season, batting .221 with 13 home runs. In eight games this spring, Wallace batted 2-for-14 with eight strikeouts.
That leaves first basemen Chris Carter and rookie Jon Singleton on the roster. The Astros have 51 players remaining in camp, including 16 non-roster invitees.
