Houston Astros acquire outfielder Carlos Gomez, right-handed pitcher Mike Fiers in tr

The Houston Astros have acquired outfielder Carlos Gomez and right-handed pitcher Mike Fiers from the Milwaukee Brewers, according to Astros general manager Jeff Luhnow in a press release.

In exchange, the Astros have given up left-handed pitcher Josh Hader, right-handed pitcher Adrian Houser and outfielders Brett Phillips and Domingo Santana.

A release from the Astros on the trade read, in part: “Gomez, 29, was hitting .262 (75x286) with 20 doubles, eight home runs and 43 RBI in 74 games for the Brewers this season. Signed through the 2016 season, Gomez is a nine-year Major League veteran.

“Fiers, 29, has made 21 starts for the Brewers this season, going 5-9 with a 3.89 ERA (51ER/118 IP). He has collected 121 strikeouts in 118.0 innings pitched and has posted over a strikeout per inning in his Major League career, collecting 349 strikeouts in 341.2 innings.”

With the additions of Gomez and Fiers, the Astros 40-man roster is now full.

Santana was playing for Triple A Fresno and was on the club’s 40-man roster, while Hader, Houser and Phillips were all playing for Double A Corpus Christi.
