Astros trade for Bubbie Buzachero

No, you read that right. The Astros have traded cash considerations to the Blue Jays (Eddie has a new favorite dance partner!) for 29-year old reliever Bubbie Buzachero, who was playing in the Double-A Eastern League New Hampshire Fisher Cats.

In 25 games (57.2IP) for New Hampshire, Buzachero has allowed 66H/36ER, 37K:23BB for a 5.62 ERA/1.54 WHIP.

In nine minor-league seasons, Buzachero has record 7.8 K/9 and a 2.64 K:BB ratio, reaching Triple-A in parts of four seasons.

Buzachero, who will report to either Corpus or Round Rock:
"Just found out a few minutes ago. It's going to be tough leaving these guys. It's a good group. Professionally, for me, I think this is a good thing."
