The Astros traded Joe Smith and Abraham Toro to the Seattle Mariners on Tuesday and received pitchers Kendall Graveman and Rafael Montero in return.

Houston's relievers have been an issue this season, and the Astros got some much-needed help today. Graveman is 4-0 with a 0.82 ERA and 10 saves in 30 appearances this season. Montero was designated for assignment last week.
