The Houston Astros have sold off most of their veteran
players over the past year-plus in an effort to acquire talent and build toward
a squad that can compete for years to come. With the regular season
approaching, Houston continues to tell teams that they are willing to listen on
any of their players, according to Jayson Stark of ESPN.
Other clubs say #Astros still telling teams they'll listen on anyone if they get 2 or more players back. Lots of scouts eyeing Lucas Harrell

Other clubs tell Stark that the Astros are willing to trade
any player as long as they are able to get two or more players in return. Lots
of scouts are currently eyeing right-hander Lucas Harrell, while Bud Norris has
also been mentioned in trade talks this offseason.
Over the past year-plus the Astros have traded shortstop Jed
Lowrie, outfielders Ben Francisco and Carlos Lee and pitchers Brandon Lyon,
J.A. Happ, David Carpenter and Mark Melancon – among others – in an effort to
get young and build its farm system.
