Reports: Houston Astros connected to blockbuster trade
Trade rumors have been swirling about the Houston Astros with the MLB trade deadline approaching in less than two weeks.
The latest reports link the Astros to the Chicago White Sox. John Heyman recently reported that a dream scenario for the Astros would be a deal bringing starting pitcher Dylan Cease to Houston.
Michael Schwab is hearing that the Astros have inquired about acquiring both Cease and Luis Robert Jr. from Chicago.
The Astros have discussed the possibility of trading for Dylan Cease AND Luis Robert Jr, per people familiar with the process.
It'd require several big league and fringe talent, but there is momentum.
Have fun with that info.
