With Roy Oswalt out for the rest of the season, the Astros acquired some pitching help Wednesday when they purchased the contract of right-hander Chad Paronto from Triple-A Round Rock and placed right-hander Billy Sadler on the 60-day disabled list with right shoulder scapular dyskinesis.
Paronto, 34, appeared in two games for Houston in July and allowed six runs in 2 1/3 innings of relief. Paronto went 2-1 with a 1.39 ERA in 44 relief outings for Round Rock in 2009. In 173 career Major League games with Baltimore (2001), Cleveland (2002-03), Atlanta (2006-07) and Houston (2008-09), Paronto is 6-12 with a 4.27 ERA.
Sadler, 27, appeared in one game for Houston on Sept. 10 vs. ATL, allowing two runs in 1.1 innings. The right-hander went 5-3 with a 5.12 ERA in 16 combined starts for Triple-A Round Rock and Triple-A Fresno this season. He was signed by Houston to a minor league contract on Aug. 6, after being given his unconditional release by San Francisco on Aug. 5.
