Proposed Deal Includes Happ, Two Others

According to Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports, the Astros will be receiving JA Happ along with two other players, pending Oswalt’s approval. Rosenthal recently tweeted:

Deal is 3-for-1. Happ in. Astros would pay “very significant” part of Oswalt’s remaining salary, which is over 23M.

With Werth likely staying, the Astros will be assuming a large part of Oswalt’s salary. Hopefully this leads to better prospects in the deal; a JA Happ centerpiece trade is far less than ideal.
