HOUSTON -- The Houston Astros have released Shawn Chacon,
opting to cut the right-hander a day after he reportedly grabbed
general manager Ed Wade by the neck and threw him to the ground.
The team requested waivers on Chacon on Thursday for the purpose of giving him his unconditional release. If he isn't claimed by
another major league team by Monday, waivers will expire and his
contract will be terminated without pay.
