The elusive player to be named later has been named now, and the Houston Astros are receiving RHP prospect Kevin Comer from the Toronto Blue Jays. Comer completes the ten-player swap that sent J.A. Happ, Brandon Lyon and David Carpenter to Toronto in exchange for right-hander Francisco Cordero, outfielder Ben Francisco, minor leaguers Joe Musgrove, Asher Wojciechowski, David Rollins and Carlos Perez, and now Comer.
Comer, a former second-round pick, was drafted as a hard thrower, but Keith Law says that his velocity is down to the upper-80s this season.
"I, along with many other commenters here, thought that the PTBNL would be some organizational depth guy or maybe a few thousand dollar bills. Losing Kevin Comer in that deal seems to make the price a little too steep to me."
So if Astros fans can take solace in anything these days, it's that they might have gotten more for Happ than originally announced.
