Blue Jays acquire Feldman from Astros for minor leaguer
TORONTO (AP) The Toronto Blue Jays have acquired right-hander Scott Feldman from the Houston Astros for minor league pitcher Lupe Chavez.
The playoff contenders made the deal Monday.
The 33-year-old Feldman is 5-3 with a 2.90 ERA in 26 appearances for the Astros this season. He's made five starts but has pitched almost exclusively out of the bullpen since the end of April.
Feldman is 1-2 with a 3.65 ERA as a starter this year, and he's gone 4-1 with a 2.41 ERA in relief.
The 18-year-old Chavez is in his third professional season, and this was his second with the Gulf Coast Blue Jays.
