Houston Astros Add Zack Greinke To Already Stacked Rotation
The MLB Trade Deadline is always one of the most hectic times of the year in sports, and this year's was no different. The Houston Astros looked to add another starter to their rotation and boy oh boy did they get a perfect pitcher.
Zack Greinke comes to Houston from the Arizona Diamondbacks with 2 more years left on his contract as he looks to help the Astros reach the World Series again. It did cost a pretty penny to pull this deal off as the Astros had to deal some of their biggest prospects.
All 4 of these players were ranked inside the top 22 of the Houston Astros minor league prospects.
Seth Beer has been blocked by the emergence of Yordan Alvarez at first base. Josh Rojas also has been blocked by the young core of players in the infield for the Astros. Pitcher Corbin Martin just had Tommy John Surgery, and J.B. Bukaskas has struggled during his time in the minor leagues.
If you want to become the most dangerous team in all of baseball without having to completely breaking down your farm system, this is how you do it.
