The Astros have been very active according to reports so they seem to be working many different avenues, trying to improve this team’s present and future.
In McHugh and Cosart’s case, the Astros would need to be overwhelmed by other teams if they want to trade their young, good, and controllable pitchers.
The trade deadline is today at 3:00 PM CT.
