Houston sends:

CF Carroll Curtis (MLB)*

 

Tampa Bay sends:

CF Mickey Moniak (A)

RP Marty Vaughn (AA)

RP Hilton Lee (A+)

 

Houston got Curtis through the rule 5 draft, when it was a huge surprise that he was unprotected, so essentially he was a free acquisition. He fit in well with the plans for HOU, but has run into massive injury troubles this season and has not shown that he's ready at the Major League level. This made him a player that Houston management was willing to move on, and in return get Moniak, who has shown solid hitting potential with great defense and two relievers who will end up in the back end of the bullpen with Gompertz & Sachko. Any day you can acquire a former 1st round pick & the son of Rick Vaughn, it's hard to say no.

* Tampa Bay is aware of Curtis' injury & that he is a rule 5 pick

Rays confirm - we've had basically a black hole in LF and it's our hunch that Curtis' talent will show through and he'll get his big-league success. While we like Moniak - with Curtis and Winter in the fold long-term he likely won't have a great shot at seeing a ton of time with us. Vaughn and Lee are nice pieces, but we've got a stable of young relievers from which to pull from
