Houston Astros And Toronto Blue Jays Complete 10 Player Trade

Gone: J.A. Happ, Brandon Lyon and David Carpenter

Arriving: Francisco Cordero, Ben Francisco, Joe Musgrove, Asher Wojciechowski, David Rollins, Carlos Perez and PTBNL.

Cordero (5.77) and B. Francisco (.285 wOBA in 54 PA) are veteran Major Leaguers. I'm being told by one of the Blubird Banter writers that the Astros received some good prospects in Wojciechowski, Musgrove and Perez with a special mention of Perez.

I don't expect the Astros to keep Cordero or Francisco past this year. It seems that both were players that the Blue Jays were looking to get off their roster.

My initial reaction is that the Astros bullpen has been further weakened with the departure of Lyon who had a 3.28 FIP in 36 innings for the Astros this season. If we're lucky a change of scenery, and maybe Mike Fast, will do Cordero some good and ease the loss of Lyon.

More reaction and analysis is coming, but to hold you over until then check out MLB Trade Rumors and Astros County.
