LOS ANGELES -- The short-lived tenure of Daniel Reynolds with the Dodgers has ended. The right-handed pitcher was claimed off waivers by the Astros on Wednesday.

The Dodgers designated Reynolds for assignment on Friday to make room on the 40-man roster for left-handed pitcher Tyler Olson, who was acquired from the Mariners for a player to be named later or cash considerations.

Reynolds, who turns 25 in April, was 2-3 with a 4.57 ERA in 43 games for Double-A Arkansas in the Angels' farm system in 2015, with 50 strikeouts and 28 walks in 43⅓ innings. He was originally drafted by the Angels in the sixth round in 2009.

The Dodgers claimed Reynolds off waivers from the Angels on Dec. 7. His brief time on the 40-man roster followed by subsequent exit from the Dodgers' organization in the same offseason he was acquired puts Reynolds in the same boat as Ryan Jackson and Ryan Lavarnway last offseason.

Reynolds' stay on the Dodgers' 40-man roster lasted 11 days this offseason. Last year, Jackson lasted 21 days and Lavarnway five days.
