The Houston Astros have made some big moves this evening.
Reddick adds a pop in the lineup and strong defensive skills in the outfield for Houston.
As I reported earlier, the Astros’ main catcher, Jason Castro, was on the Top 25 Free Agents to Watch List. Looks like the Astros have decided that they didn’t want to entertain the thought of talking to him because they signed one of the best framing catchers in the league, Brian McCann. Houston will be paying for most of McCann’s remaining salary, while New York receives two pitching prospects who routinely throw 95 MPH. In the case of Guzman, he has hit 103 MPH on radar several times. However, both Abreu and Guzman are young and sometimes wild, so it will be interesting to see what develops.
