Astros send:

1B Chris Marrero (currently with MIL) - retain 50% of salary (Should be roughly $1.056 per season)

1B Alejandro Selen (MLB)


Rockies send:

SP Ty Lloyd (A-)

RP Charlie Toder (A-)

2B Bernardo Sanchez (A)


Houston made the dreadful mistake of confusing two players, and bidding on a player in the auction without the game open. Marrero was not who we thought he was, and so to move him and eat only a chunk of the contract made the most sense for us.

Selen was someone Mitch was after for some time, and Houston is able to move him with Ron Foster and Granados coming in rule 5.

In return we got a RP (fragile or not) prospect we like, a SP we feel can develop under our organizations guidance and a sleek fielding MIF.

Selen was a guide, as mentioned, the Rockies were looking at for quite some time.


Chris Marrero will be welcomed back with open arms to the Rockies organization after short stops in Milwaukee and Houston.

Though could be cut prior to opening day.


We thought the price for a bat like Selen was certainly worth this price.
