MLB Rumors: Houston Astros Shopping Pitcher

According to Jeff Passan, the Astros are willing to listen to offers for Jose Urquidy.

Urquidy could be used as a trading chip to land the Astros a bigger name as they prepare for the playoffs. Urquidy will be under team control after this season, too, so he would be more than a rental if another club opted to trade for him.

In 18 starts this season, Urquidy sports a 9-4 record to go along with a 3.93 ERA. Overall, it has been a strong season for the four-year veteran, but it appears that Houston is willing to part ways with him if they get the right return. Let's see what ends up happening from here.
