Astros reportedly showing interest in Trevor Bauer trade

Trevor Bauer

The Houston Astros are looking to add a starting pitcher at the trade deadline and are looking at Trevor Bauer, according to a few reports.

MLB.com’s Jon Morosi reported on Tuesday that the Astros and Cleveland Indians have been in trade talks about Bauer.

The Astros have also explored a Madison Bumgarner trade and reportedly have talked with the New York Mets about Zach Wheeler.

The New York Post’s Joel Sherman says the Astros’ target list includes those three pitchers.

Bauer, 28, got lit up by the Kansas City Royals in his latest start and had a mini-meltdown when pulled from the game. He has a 3.79 ERA and 185 strikeouts in 156.2 innings this season. He would give a pretty terrific Astros rotation that already includes Justin Verlander and Gerrit Cole a nice boost, although things could be uncomfortable at first.

The big issue here is that the playoff-contending Indians may not want to trade Bauer despite exploring talks.
