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.

After the Carolina Panthers traded in front of the Texans to secure the No. 1 pick last week, many are now assuming the Texans are going to take either Bryce Young or CJ Stroud with the No.2 overall pick.

But before that trade was made, many believed Alabama edge rusher Will Anderson could be in play for the Texans. With that in mind, could the Texans swerve everyone on draft day and select Anderson?

Furthermore, if Bryce Young is off the board, and the Texans don't want to draft CJ Stroud because he's represented by Deshaun Watson's agent, which scenario is more likely?

The Texans trade back, or take Anderson at No.2?

Be sure to watch the video above as we cover all the angles and offer some scenarios that have yet to be covered.
