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.
