The Toronto Blue Jays and Houston Astros have completed a 10-player trade, according to Shi Davidi of Sportsnet:

In the trade, the Blue Jays send seven players to the Astros, including right-hander Francisco Cordero, outfielder Ben Francisco, minor league right-handers Joseph Musgrove and Asher Wojciechowski, minor league left-handers David Rollins, and minor league backstop Carlos Perez along with a player to be named later.

In exchange for this haul of players, the Blue Jays receive right-handed relievers Brandon Lyon and David Carpenter along with left-handed starting pitcher J.A. Happ from the Astros.

Buster Olney of ESPN spoke with a talent evaluator who says there are no “game-changers” involved in the trade. He added that Musgrove “is the best of the prospects.”

The Astros will need a starting pitcher to take Happ’s spot in their rotation, and Zachary Levine of the Houston Chronicle thinks Dallas Keuchel would be “fine rest-wise” to takeover.

On the Blue Jays end, Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports notes that the trade finally opens up a spot for former top prospect Travis Snider in Toronto.
