The Houston Astros continue to be the biggest players (and sellers) on the trade front as we make our way to the trade deadline. As the Astros continue their full-scale rebuild from top-to-bottom, they've now completed the two biggest trades we've seen to this point.

First it was the ten-player trade with the Toronto Blue Jays and now the Astros have traded closer Brett Myers to the Chicago White Sox in exchange for minor league players Matt Heidenreich and Blair Walters as well as a player to be named later.

Myers, 31, posted a 3.52 ERA across 30 2/3 innings of work in the closer role for Houston with a 5.9 K/9 and 1.8 BB/9.
