Manzella Rehab Assignment Moves to Round Rock

August 9, 2010 - Pacific Coast League (PCL) - Round Rock Express News Release

Houston Astros infielder Tommy Manzella, who has been on the disabled list since June 24, will join the Round Rock Express in a rehab assignment Tuesday. Manzella has spent the past five days with Double-A Corpus Christi. He was 6-for-14 with one RBI and three runs scored in five games with the Hooks, collecting two hits in each of the last two games.

Manzella hit .212 (40-for-189) with one home run and 16 RBI in 59 games for the Astros this season before sustaining a fractured left index finger. He hit .289 (153-for-530) with nine home runs and 56 RBI in 133 games for the Express last season.

Left-handed pitcher Polin Trinidad was sent to Double-A Corpus Christi following Monday night's game. The move frees space for right-hander Jordan Lyles, who makes his Triple-A debut Tuesday as the Express host the Sacramento River Cats (first pitch at 7:05 p.m. CDT). Lyles will be the first 19-year-old to pitch in a Pacific Coast League game this season.
