Astros get C Hank Conger from Angels for RHP Nick Tropeano

The Houston Astros have acquired catcher Hank Conger in a trade with the Los Angeles Angels.

The Angels got right-hander Nick Tropeano and minor league catcher Carlos Perez in the deal Wednesday.

The 26-year-old Conger played 80 games with 70 starts last season for the Angels. A first-round pick in 2006, Conger hit .221 with four homers and a career-high 25 RBIs.

Houston general manager Jeff Luhnow says: "We scouted him extensively this year as a divisional opponent and feel he brings a unique skill set to our organization."

Tropeano went 1-3 with a 4.57 ERA in four games for Houston in 2014. He spent most of the season at Triple-A Oklahoma City, where he was 9-5 with a 3.03 ERA in 23 games.

Perez spent last season in Triple-A, hitting .259 with six homers and 34 RBIs.
