The Astros did exactly what everyone expected them to at the deadline, moving any and all veteran pieces that were of any interest to contenders, shipping off a total of six veterans for 13 prospects total.
Among the highlights of their return was Marlins third baseman Matt Dominguez, who plays Gold Glove-caliber defense but looks like he'll be average at best with the bat.
Pirates outfielder Robbie Grossman (.294/.418/.451, 10 SB) has terrific plate discipline and the speed to make an impact at the top of the order.
Blue Jays starter Asher Wojciechowski (20 GS, 8-3, 3.42 ERA, 87 Ks, 105.1 IP) was a first-round pick in 2010, and he has pitched well in Double-A this season.
