Astros acquired RHP Kyle Smith from the Royals for OF Justin Maxwell.

Smith, 20, has a 2.85 ERA and 96/29 K/BB ratio over 104 1/3 innings in 19 starts with High-A Wilmington this season. The stuff doesn't quite match the impressive numbers, but it's ultimately a pretty nice get for the Astros, as Maxwell is a useful platoon player at best.
