Blue Jays Send Kevin Comer to Astros to Complete Lyon/Happ Trade

The Houston Astros acquired right-hander Kevin Comer as the player to be named later in the trade that sent Brandon Lyon and J.A. Happ to the Toronto Blue Jays, reports Zachary Levine of the Houston Chronicle:

Levine notes that the reason the PTBNL label was necessary was that Comer wasn’t eligible to be traded at the time the transaction took place. He also says Comer will remain pitching at rookie-level once he joins the Astros.

Comer was a supplemental first-round pick of the Blue Jays in June of 2011. The 20-year-old began his professional career this season and has maintained an ERA of 3.95 with 6.0 SO/9 and 1.7 BB/9 over ten appearances, including seven starts, spanning forty-three and one-third innings.
