The new Astros pitcher has pitched well out of the bullpen this season. He has a 3.86 ERA in 49 appearances this season. Through four seasons as a Blue Jay, he has a 4.76 ERA with a 1.43 WHIP. He’ll be a big piece in this team’s bullpen. The Astros have been one of the most active teams at the deadline, as they’ve acquired Zack Grienke, Martin Maldonado and Aaron Sanchez as well. The Astros have upgraded in almost all areas of their roster.
The Blue Jays will receive Derek Fisher. Fisher has only played 17 big league games this season where he slashed .226/.317/.358. However, he did well in triple-A Round Rock. After 60 games, he had a solid line of .286/.401/.522.
