MLB insider Jeff Passan is reporting that the Astros are sending Jake Marisnick to the Mets. In return, the Astros will receive two prospects, Blake Taylor and Kenedy Corona. Marisnick had one year left on his contract and hit .233 with 10 homers and 34 RBI for the Astros in 2019 as a part-time player.

The Astros will likely use Kyle Tucker in the outfield more this year, and Myles Straw can provide the speed the Astros lose with Marisnick in New York. Brian McTaggart provides a look at the prospect's stats below.

The Houston Astros are finally firing on all cylinders, winning nine of their last eleven games. They now trail the first-place Mariners by only four games as they prepare to play the Angels this week at Minute Maid Park.

What's going right?

Now that the Astros starting pitching is healthy, the club has been stacking up wins, with Kyle Tucker leading the offense along with Jeremy Pena and Jake Myers.

Can they keep it up?

Even if Tucker tails off a bit, hopefully that will coincide with Yordan Alvarez getting hot and the offense overall not skipping a beat.

Be sure to watch the video above as we discuss the Astros winning ways, and what we should expect from the team in the short and long-term.
