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.
