Astros trade P Scott Feldman to Toronto for pitching prospect

The Houston Astros traded pitcher Scott Feldman to the Toronto Blue Jays Monday for pitching prospect Lupe Chavez.

Feldman was 5-3 with a 2.90 ERA in 62.0 innings pitched this season, his third year in Houston.

Chavez, 18, is 4-1 with a 1.69 ERA in 32 innings pitched in six starts this season for the Gulf Coast League Blue Jays. Chavez, a native of Sinaloa, Mexico, is in his second professional season after signing with the Blue Jays as an international free agent in July 2014.

In his two seasons, Chavez has an 11-3 record and a 2.41 ERA in 20 games.

The Blue Jays are in town, so Feldman will switch over to the visitors' clubhouse at Minute Maid Park.

The Astros division rivals, the Texas Rangers, made two big moves Monday, acquiring Carlos Beltran from the New York Yankees and Jonathan Lucroy from the Milwaukee Brewers.

A 39-year-old switch-hitter, Beltran has been the Yankees' top offensive player, leading the team with a .304 batting average, 22 homers and 64 RBIs.

Beltran signed a $45 million, three-year contract before the 2014 season but played with an elbow bone spur during much of his first season in New York and got off to a slow start in 2015 following surgery. He will be eligible for free agency after this year's World Series.

The 'Stros trail the Rangers by 6 games for the AL West division heading into Monday night's action. Houston is 2.5 games out of the second and final wild card spot.

The Latest on Major League Baseball's deadline Monday for trades where players do not first have to pass through waivers (all times EDT):


------
3:35 p.m.
The AL Central-leading Cleveland Indians acquired outfielder Brandon Guyer from Tampa Bay for two minor leaguers on Monday.
Cleveland sent outfielder Nathan Lukes and right-hander Jhonleider Salinas to Tampa Bay.
Guyer, a right-handed hitter, is batting .241 with seven home runs and 18 RBIs in 63 games. He has been hit by a pitch 23 times, a major league high, and is batting .344 (22 for 64) with four homers against left-handers.
The 30-year-old Guyer played all three outfield positions with the Rays this season. He spent most of June on the disabled list with a strained left hamstring.

3:05 p.m.
A person with knowledge of the trade says the San Francisco Giants have acquired left-handed reliever Will Smith from the Brewers to bolster their bullpen for the stretch run, sending backup catcher Andrew Susac and pitching prospect Phil Bickford to Milwaukee.
The person spoke on condition of anonymity Monday because it hadn't been announced.
The NL West-leading Giants have struggled mightily since the All-Star break and had been looking to upgrade a relief corps that has been so reliable in recent years, helping them win World Series championships in 2010, `12 and `14. San Francisco has won two straight games since losing 11 of 13 following the All-Star Game.
The 27-year-old Smith is 1-3 with a 3.68 ERA this season in 27 games and 22 innings.

Colin Rea is heading back to the San Diego Padres after leaving with an injury in his first start since being traded to Miami.
The Marlins acquired Rea on Friday in a seven-player deal with the Padres, but he had to leave Saturday's game against St. Louis in the fourth inning and was put on the 15-day disabled list with a right elbow sprain.
San Diego announced Monday it reacquired Rea from Miami and sent minor league pitcher Luis Castillo back to the Marlins. Castillo had gone from Miami to San Diego in Friday's deal.
Miami acquired Rea and right-hander Andrew Cashner on Friday as part of a push for a postseason spot, but Rea is of little use to the Marlins if he's hurt.

2:17 p.m.
The Oakland Athletics traded right fielder Josh Reddick and left-hander Rich Hill to the contending Los Angeles Dodgers on Monday for a trio of pitching prospects.
The deal was announced two hours before the deadline for completing trades without waivers.
The A's received minor leaguers Jharel Cotton and Grant Holmes, along with Frankie Montas, who made seven appearances with the White Sox last year.
Hill, who signed a $6 million, one-year contract with Oakland during the offseason, is on the disabled list with a pesky blister on the middle finger of his throwing hand that hasn't healed. He had been scheduled to pitch Sunday in Cleveland before the DL stint.

Two people with knowledge of the trade say the Oakland Athletics have traded right fielder Josh Reddick and left-hander Rich Hill to the Los Angeles Dodgers for a trio of right-handers.
The A's receive minor leaguers Jharel Cotton and Grant Holmes, along with Frankie Montas -- who made seven appearances with the White Sox last year -- in the deal. Both people spoke on condition of anonymity to The Associated Press on Monday because the trade had yet to be formally announced by either club.

The Boston Red Sox have acquired left-handed reliever Fernando Abad from the Minnesota Twins for minor-league pitcher Pat Light.
The deal was first announced Monday before the non-waiver trade deadline, giving the Red Sox another veteran for the bullpen in their pursuit of Baltimore and Toronto in the AL East race.
Abad posted a 2.65 ERA in 39 appearances for the Twins, making $1.25 million this year. He'll be eligible for free agency after the 2017 season. The 30-year-old Abad has held opponents to a .220 batting average this year. He came up with Houston and also pitched for Washington and Oakland.
The right-handed Light has a 2.32 ERA in 31 innings for Triple-A Pawtucket.
