A second-round pick by the Diamondbacks in 2009, Krauss was acquired in the 2012 trade deadline deal that sent Chris Johnson to Arizona. Reaching the big leagues with the Astros in 2013, the big left-handed power hitter failed to live up to expectations. Krauss batted .200 with 10 home runs and 34 RBIs in 119 games spanning two seasons in Houston. Krauss was claimed off waivers by the Angels after the 2014 season.
