Tigers | Jose Veras acquired
The Detroit Tigers acquired CL Jose Veras from the Houston Astros for Class A OF Danry Vasquez.
Fantasy Tip: Veras has had a very solid year closing for the Astros with a 2.93 ERA, a 1.00 WHIP and 19 saves in 22 chances. He has also struck out 44 batters to 14 walks in 43 innings. It's unknown if he'll immediately serve as the Tigers' closer.. Veras' value would enhance a bit due to the likelihood of more save chances. For Houston, Joshua Fields or Jose Cisnero is likely to take over closing duties. Fields has had a rocky season, but the former first-round pick has great stuff. He has just been marred by injuries. Cisnero has had an OK season, but he doesn't have a track record of success above Double-A. We'd expect a committee approach here.
