White Sox | Brett Myers acquired from Houston

The Chicago White Sox have acquired RP Brett Myers from the Houston Astros. It is uncertain what the Astros will receive in return.

Fantasy Tip: Myers heads to Chicago where he'll help a beleaguered bullpen. He won't be closing, though; that task is Addison Reed's at the moment and likely for the long term. Myers has virtually zero chance of saving any games for the ChiSox, so it's safe to drop him in most leagues. He won't give you much roto value if he's not closing out games in the ninth.

Now that the 'Stros also traded away Brandon Lyon and David Carpenter earlier this week, Wilton Lopez is next in line, with recently acquired Francisco Cordero a candidate to see some closures as well. Grab Lopez if you're still in the hunt for saves, with Cordero being a flier in cavernous mixed formats if you're desperate.
