NEW YORK (AP) -- The New York Yankees have claimed right-hander Mickey Storey off waivers from the Houston Astros.
The 26-year-old was 0-1 with a 3.86 ERA in 26 relief appearances after making his major league debut in August. He was 7-4 with a 3.05 ERA this year at Triple-A Oklahoma City.
New York also added seven players to its 40-man roster, selecting left-handers Manny Banuelos and Francisco Rondon from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre; outfielder Ramon Flores, right-hander Brett Marshall and left-hander Nik Turley from Double-A Trenton; and right-hander Jose Ramirez from Class A Tampa.
The Yankees said right-hander Dave Herndon refused an outright assignment and elected free agency.
