A day after the Houston Astros struck a ten player deal with the Toronto Blue Jays, the Astros have struck another deal with another American league team. In a move that has long been predicted, the Astros traded veteran closer Brett Myers to the Chicago White Sox in return for a package of three prospects. In 35 appearances with the Astros this year, Myers has posted a 3.52 ERA, 20 strikeouts and 19 saves out of 21 opportunities. Myers will most likely go directly into the bullpen for the White Sox, but the South Siders could start him if necessary; in 249 career starts, Myers has a record of 94 Wins and 89 losses. In the deal, the Astros received RHP Matt Heidenreich, LHP Blair Walters, and a player to be named later. Neither player has Major League experience, but they will serve to bolster the Astros' farm system. The role of closer is now open, but some options might included recently acquired RHP Francisco Cordero, LHP Wesley Wright, or RHP Wilton Lopez
