So the title was an exaggeration but the teams did announce that they have completed a 10 player trade. The Astros are sending Brandon Lyon, J.A. Happ and David Carpenter in exchange for Francisco Cordero, Ben Francisco and minor leaguers Joe Musgrove, Asher Wojciechowski, David Rollins, Carlos Perez and a player to be named later.
“Once again we are adding depth to our minor league system with quality young players,” GM Jeff Luhnow said in a press release. “We really feel this will help us moving forward and are extremely excited about the players we’ve added to our organization.”
