According to reports, the Houston Astros are acquiring Orioles 30-year-old OF/1B Trey Mancini.

Mancini is hitting .268 with 10 home runs and 41 RBI this season. He was the AL comeback player of the year in 2021 after recovering from stage 3 colon cancer.

Mancini will be a free agent after the season, because he will likely opt out, so the Astros didn't have to give up too much to acquire him. The full trade package is below courtesy of Chandler Rome.
