Astros upgrade roster with trades for 1B Mancini, C Vázquez
HOUSTON (AP) — The Houston Astros have acquired first baseman Trey Mancini from the Baltimore Orioles in a three-team trade that also moved speedy outfielder Jose Siri to the Tampa Bay Rays. Houston also received minor league right-hander Jayden Murray from Tampa Bay. The Astros sent Siri to the Rays and minor league right-hander Chayce McDermott to the Orioles. The AL West-leading Astros were in the market for a first baseman with Yuli Gurriel struggling this season. The 30-year-old Mancini is hitting .268 with 10 homers and 41 RBIs in 92 games this year.
