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.
Just a of couple hours later, Levine informed the Twitter world that RHP Chris Devenski will be the "player to be announced" from the trade that sent Brett Myers to the Chicago White Sox.
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.
