Paul Clemens added to 40-Man Roster

The Astros haved added right-handed pitcher Paul Clemens to their 40-man roster. This move brings the club's 40-man roster count to 38. Clemens played for Corpus Christi and Oklahoma City in 2011 after being acquired from Atlanta in the Michael Bourn trade.
This evening is the deadline for club's to set their rosters in preparation for next month's Rule 5 Draft. I assume the Astros won't be making any more additions, meaning Kody Hinze and Dayan Diaz will be left unprotected in the draft which will be held December 8.
In a side note, the Astros also signed right-handed starter Lance Pendleton and invited him to spring training as a non-roster player
