The Astros made the first move this trade season, acquiring Scott Kazmir from the Athletics. Of course, this moves the dial and the parties involved must comment on the transaction:

Astros general manager Jeff Luhnow from an Astros press release:

"Scott Kazmir is one of the best pitchers in the American League and strengthens our rotation," said Luhnow. "His addition gives the Astros a better chance of reaching and succeeding in the postseason. It has been a while since the Astros have been relevant late in the summer and winning now is a priority."
