The Astros were going nowhere this season. They are, of course, headed to the AL next season. As such, they've decided to go with a full-blown rebuild.
They moved seven players and future considerations out, while bringing back 17 players, a player to be named and cash.
You have to love that the 'Stros are looking long term. They already have a good young core in Jose Altuve and, to a lesser degree, Jed Lowrie. These trades should help to bolster the team down the line.
