MLB Trade Ideas: Updating Brett Myers' Potential Suitors If the Astros Struggle

It has been an ugly start for the Houston Astros, which sit at 2-7 and in the NL Central cellar. One of the few bright spots has been starting pitcher Brett Myers, who doesn't have a decision through his first two games of the season, but he was the starting pitcher for the Astros lone win. He also was the Opening Day pitcher and should've gotten a win if it wasn't for Brandon Lyon giving up three runs in the bottom of the ninth to the Phillies.

Both of his starts so far this season qualified for quality starts. He has pitched 13.1 innings over the two starts with an ERA of 2.03. He also has held opponents to a batting average of .200, but because of the Astros slow start, it may be advantageous for them to consider moving Myers for prospects with the future in mind.

There have not been any reports made that any of these teams are in connection with the Astros as possible trade partners, but these teams make sense to me as far as being interested in trading for Brett Myers.
