The Astros traded third baseman Chris Johnson to the Diamondbacks for outfield prospects Bobby Borchering and Marc Krauss
The Houston Astros made another move by trading third baseman Chris Johnson to the Arizona Diamondbacks for outfield prospects Bobby Borchering and Marc Krauss. This is the fifth trade that the Astros have made this season, and in the case with Johnson he was shocked to learn that he had been moved:
"I know that's strange to say because it seems like everybody's getting traded over here, but I was pretty surprised," Johnson said. "When they called me out of the cage, I was in shock. I didn't know what to do. This is all pretty new to me."
