Houston is making their intentions to win another World Series very clear with the acquisition of Greinke. He has a 10-4 record with 2.87 ERA this season for the Diamondbacks.
The Astros lost Dallas Keuchel this offseason and now have Greinke to help bolster their pitching staff. Their pitching staff already has the third-best ERA in the league and are adding to it.
Rojas, 25, is a utility player who has been in Double-A and Triple-A this season with a .315 average between both levels. Beer is a first baseman and outfielder who is hitting .299 in Double-A this season. Bukauskas is a right-handed pitcher who has a 2-5 record with a 5.25 ERA in Double-A this season. Corbin Martin is another right-handed pitcher who actually made it to the majors with a 1-1 record with a 5.59 ERA in five starts for the Astros.
