The Astros were forced to give up on Wallace who has offered little to nothing at the major league level across the last four seasons compiling a .242/.313/.391 line with 29 home runs and 102 RBI in 311 games.
He passed though waivers in February and was a non-roster invitee to camp this spring by the Astros but in the end the team saw no spot for him.
“He’s been a big part of this organization for past few years, but we didn’t see a role for him at the big league level,” said general manager Jeff Luhnow.
Wallace, 27, has been a Triple-A masher and someone will surely pick him up with that in mind. It is his only path back to the majors.
