The Houston Astros Acquire the Detroit Tigers #4 Prospect for Reliever Jose Veras

The Houston Astros continue to bolster their farm system Monday as they have acquired outfielder Danry Vasquez and a player to be named later from the Detroit Tigers in exchange for right-handed pitcher Jose Veras (Pictured on the Left).  The nineteen year old Vasquez has spent the 2013 season at Class A West Michigan, where he has hit .281 with 16 doubles, five triples, five homers and 39 RBIs in 96 games.

Houston hopes he will be able to come in in the next few years and really bolster their outfield and be a viable bat.  Now the Astros will miss reliever Jose Veras as he has 19 saves and a 2.93 ERA, but with the offense being the main issue it is understandable why this move was made.

The Astros will more than likely will not see Vasquez this season.  With him being the number four prospect out of the Detroit Tiger farm system though, one can expect his time in the minors to be short lived.
