Astros acquired RHP Mike Fiers and OF Carlos Gomez from the Brewers for OF Domingo Santana, OF Brett Phillips, LHP Josh Hader, RHP Adrian Houser and international bonus slot #76.

The Astros now boast a very strong top four hurlers in their rotation, as Fiers likely slots in behind Dallas Keuchel, Scott Kazmir and Lance McCullers. The 30-year-old right-hander boasts a 3.89 ERA, 1.36 WHIP and 121/43 K/BB ratio through 118 frames on the year and should benefit from a move away from the launching pad that is Miller Park.

Brewers acquired RHP Adrian Houser, OF Domingo Santana, OF Brett Phillips, LHP Josh Hader and international bonus slot #76 from the Astros for OF Carlos Gomez and RHP Mike Fiers.

While the 22-year-old hurler doesn't have the cache of the other three prospects heading to the Brewers in this deal, he isn't simply a throw-in either. He has a live arm and the ability to pitch out of the bullpen or rotation. In 19 appearances between /High-A Lancaster and Double-A Corpus Christi this season, he owns a 5.10 ERA, 1.47 WHIP and 78/35 K/BB ratio across 83 frames.

Brewers acquired LHP Josh Hader, OF Domingo Santana, OF Brett Phillips, RHP Adrian Houser and international bonus slot #76 from the Astros for OF Carlos Gomez and RHP Mike Fiers.

The 21-year-old southpaw was the Astros Minor League Pitcher of the Year in 2014. He has split time between the starting rotation and the bullpen at Double-A Corpus Christi this season, compiling a 3.17 ERA, 1.29 WHIP and 69/24 K/BB ratio across 65 1/3 innings.

Brewers acquired OF Domingo Santana, OF Brett Phillips, LHP Josh Hader, RHP Adrian Houser and international bonus slot #76 from the Astros for OF Carlos Gomez and RHP Mike Fiers.

The 22-year-old outfielder has seen limited action with the big league club this season, but has mashed to the tune of .320/.426/.582 with 16 homers and 59 RBI in 75 games at Triple-A Fresno. With little left to prove in the minor leagues, he could immediately get an opportunity to play everyday in Milwaukee.

Brewers acquired OF Brett Phillips, OF Domingo Santana, LHP Josh Hader, RHP Adrian Houser and international bonus slot #76 from the Astros for OF Carlos Gomez and RHP Mike Fiers.

It's a terrific haul of prospects for the Brewers, while also an incredibly helpful move for the Astros toward their playoff aspirations. Phillips, a 21-year-old outfielder, is hitting .320/.377/.548 with 16 homers, 71 RBI and 15 stolen bases between High-A Lancaster and Double-A Corpus Christi this season.

Tigers general manager Dave Dombrowski said Thursday that Jose Valdez will be recalled from Triple-A Toledo on Friday.

It will be the first time in the big leagues for the right-hander. The 25-year-old owns a 3.83 ERA, 1.52 WHIP and 36/28 K/BB ratio over 44 2/3 innings at Toledo. He'll work in middle relief for the Tigers.

Dodgers transferred RHP Chris Hatcher to the 60-day disabled list.

Nothing has changed physically for Hatcher, who is currently on a minor league rehab assignment with High-A Ranco Cucamonga. This was merely done as a procedural move to create a spot on the team's 40-man roster for one of the team's many new additions.
Jul 30 - 7:41 PM

According to Jon Heyman of CBS Sports, the Astros have acquired Mike Fiers along with Carlos Gomez from the Brewers in exchange for prospects.

Fiers will certainly help to bolster the Astros rotation, that now boasts Dallas Keuchel, Scott Kazmir and Lance McCullers at the top. The 30-year-old owns a 3.89 ERA, 1.36 WHIP and 121/43 K/BB ratio over 118 innings on the season.
