The Houston Astros have made starting pitcher Scott Feldman available ahead of Thursday’s 4 PM ET trade deadline.
However given the 31-year-old’s contract and statistics this season a trade may not happen.
Feldman landed a three-year deal from the Astros worth $30 million in the offseason. Since signing that deal he has produced just a 4.39 ERA and 1.42 WHIP in 19 starts this season.
Last season it was the Baltimore Orioles who took a gamble on Feldman acquiring him in a trade with the Chicago Cubs. Feldman had mixed results down the stretch for the Orioles.
Teammate Dallas Keuchel has more trade value for the Astros but the team is not as open to trading the 26-year-old left hander. Keuchel is 10-7 with a 2.97 ERA and a 1.23 WHIP in 20 starts this season. He also leads the league with four complete games.
Right now it is believed that Astors closer Chad Qualls is still not available in trade talks. Quallas has 11 saves this season and will make $3 million next season.
