Houston Astros Discussing Outfielder Trade With Multiple Teams

The Houston Astros have been actively exploring trade possibilities for outfielder Jake Meyers in recent weeks.

At 27 years old, Meyers is not yet eligible for arbitration and remains under club control for four more years.

He initially impressed as a rookie in 2021 but has since struggled, particularly after a shoulder injury and surgery affected his performance.

Despite these challenges, Meyers has maintained excellent defensive skills, ranking highly in metrics like Defensive Runs Saved and Outs Above Average.

Over his three-year career, the 27-year-old holds a .235/.296/.379 triple-slash line, with 17 home runs, 76 RBIs, 10 stolen bases, and 77 runs scored across 213 games played.

His performance in Triple-A has also been noteworthy, suggesting potential that other teams might find appealing.

Meyers' defensive prowess and relative youth make him a potential asset for teams seeking a strong outfielder, especially against left-handed pitchers.

His affordability and club control for the next few seasons add to his appeal. Teams like the San Francisco Giants, Minnesota Twins, Arizona Diamondbacks, and Tampa Bay Rays have been mentioned as possible interested parties.

While a major return for Meyers is not anticipated, his combination of speed, defense, and cost-effectiveness makes him an attractive trade option for teams looking to enhance their outfield without a significant financial commitment​. Photo Credit: Erik Williams-USA TODAY Sports
