Atlanta Braves & Houston Astros Swap Pitchers

The Braves are set to acquire Jake Odorizzi from the Astros in exchange for Will Smith.

Odorizzi will provide the Braves with another very solid starter for their rotation. That is something that the reigning World Series champs needed, so it makes sense that Odorizzi is heading to Atlanta. In 12 appearances this season, the one-time All-Star sports a 4-3 record and 3.75 ERA.

Smith should end up being a strong setup man for the Astros' bullpen. In 41 games this season, the 10-year veteran has a 0-1 record and 4.38 ERA.
