The Astros are still trying to shake things up with their pitching staff. Zachary Levine at the Houston Chronicle reported on Friday that Houston traded for Garrett Mock, a homegrown product who went to North Shore High School and the University of Houston. The Stros acquired Mock from the Boston Red Sox for future considerations.
Astros acquire Class A RHP Chris Devenski from White Sox as PTBNL in Brett Myers trade. Still one coming from Jays too.— Zachary Levine (@zacharylevine) August 3, 2012
Mock, 29, has pitched only 135 2/3 innings in three MLB seasons - all with the Washington Nationals from 2008-10. Devenski has a 3.83 ERA in 44 2/3 innings pitched in his last 10 games for the Class A Kannapolis Intimidators this season. He's struck out 36 batters and walked 14.
