The Houston Astros acquired OF L.J. Hoes and P Josh Hader from the Baltimore Orioles Wednesday, July 31, in exchange for SP Bud Norris. Houston also received a competitive lottery draft pick, roughly 35th overall.
Fantasy Tip: Hoes, a left-handed pure swinger, is developing some moderate power. He hit .304 with three home runs and 40 RBIs in 365 at-bats with Triple-A Norfolk. He should have a chance to see significant playing time in Houston after they traded Justin Maxwell away. Consider adding him in deep AL-only leagues. Hoes is starting for the 'Stros Wednesday.

The Baltimore Orioles placed SP Jason Hammel (forearm) on the 15-day disabled list with right forearm tightness Wednesday, July 31, and OF Steve Pearce was recalled from the minors in a corresponding move. Also, RP Jairo Asencio has cleared waivers and was outrighted to the minors.
Fantasy Tip: Bud Norris, who the O's just traded for today, will effectively take Hammel's place in the rotation. It's unclear if Hammel will have a rotation spot when he's ready to return, but he can be dropped in shallow formats.

The Baltimore Orioles have agreed to acquire SP Bud Norris from the Houston Astros for OF L.J. Hoes and another player.
Fantasy Tip: Norris' move to the Orioles probably will not affect his fantasy value much because he will be staying in the American League, although it could go down because he will be playing AL East teams more often.
