Astros Cut Ties With Philip Humber

D. Kersey/Getty Images(HOUSTON) -- Philip Humber threw the 21st perfect-game last year in the MLB, but a year later will now be searching for a new team.

The Houston Astros designated Humber for assignment on Sunday after he failed to get through the top of the sixth inning against the Texas Rangers on Saturday.  Humber gave up five runs in relief and only recorded two outs.

Humber was 0-8 with a 9.59 ERA this season with Houston.  

Edgar Gonzalez will take Humber's spot in the roster.
