After an up-and-down first season in Houston, Giles looked to be emerging as the dynamic late-inning weapon the "Stros had hoped to acquire in 2017, tossing 62 2/3 innings of 2.30 ERA ball with 14 strikeouts per nine innings against 3.4 BB/9".

The Astros have optioned righthander pitcher Ken Giles to Triple A after his ninth-inning meltdown Tuesday night, the team announced Wednesday.

Giles has had a tumultuous season so far with several poignant negative moments. When manager A.J. Hinch went to the mound to pull Giles from the game, the struggling closer cursed at Hinch before leaving the field.

But when Giles came in during the ninth inning, the Astros had a 4-0 lead. For Hinch's part, he said he didn't know if he was the target, but if it was, "we'll talk about it". He has allowed 17 runs all season in 34 appearances. The sweeping slider that was often Giles's strikeout pitch has none of the snap it had last year, leaving hitters to sit on his fastball, which has velocity, but doesn't appear to have almost as much movement as in previous years. He allowed five earned runs in 1⅔ innings in the World Series against the Dodgers.

The Houston Astros won Tuesday's game against the A's in ridiculous fashion, but it wasn't all smiles for the AL West leaders.

And this incident, along with his generally churlish attitude, seemed out of place set against the backdrop of the mostly mild-mannered and fun-loving Astros clubhouse.
