According to Jon Heyman of CBSSports, the Phillies have acquired reliever Wilton Lopez from the Houston Astros for three unnamed prospects.
Details are still being finalized so it is unclear which prospects will be headed to Houston in the deal. Heyman did report that they’re expected to be near-MLB ready.
Lopez is coming off a good season in which he went 6-3 with a 2.17 ERA. The 29-year old right-hander converted 10 saves and had 54 strikeouts and only 8 walks in 64 games for the Astros.
More details to come.
