The Houston Astros have added three players to their 40-man roster in preparation for the 2013 Rule 5 Draft. The players added yesterday were left-handed pitcher Luis Cruz, outfielder Domingo Santana and right-handed pitcher Asher Wojciechowski. The announcement was made by Astros General Manager Jeff Luhnow. Cruz, 23, combined to post a 10-6 record with two saves and a 4.56 ERA (66ER/130.1IP) in 31 games, including 20 starts, with Double A Corpus Christi (4g/2gs) and Class A Lancaster (27g/18gs) in 2013. He fanned 150 hitters in his 130.1 innings pitched this season, and led all Astros minor league pitchers in strikeouts. Cruz spent the majority of his season at Lancaster before being promoted to Corpus Christi in late August. With the Hooks, Cruz made four appearances (two starts), posting a 2-0 record with a complete game and a 0.53 ERA (1ER/17IP), while allowing just five hits and fanning 21 in 17.0 innings pitched. Cruz was originally a ninth-round pick by Houston out of Puerto Rico in the June 2008 draft."/>
