The Blue Jays are acquiring right-hander Scott Feldman from the Astros, reports MLB.com’s Brian McTaggart (Twitter link). The Astros will receive minor league pitcher Lupe Chavez in return, tweets Yahoo’s Jeff Passan.
Feldman opened the season as the Astros’ fourth starter, but by the end of April was spending most of his time working as a reliever. The 33-year-old is owed about $2.75MM this year, after which he’ll be a free agent. In another move, the Jays sent Jesse Chavez to the Dodgers for Mike Bolsinger.
