Moreno waived, claimed

Texas announced that Philadelphia has claimed pitcher EDWIN MORENO, who had been placed on waivers.

Moreno suffered throughout 2004, missing two months with a sore elbow and pitching poorly upon his return. Repeating at AA, he allowed almost fifteen baserunners per nine innings and his strikeout rate fell to an uncomfortably low 4.7 per nine.

Moreno's departure drops the roster to 38 players. Texas will need to add at least two before the season begins: a middle infielder to be determined plus one or both among Carlos Delgago (if he signs) and Greg Colbrunn.
