Houston, Colorado Confirm Deal
Thursday, January 11th, 2018
It took some time to iron out the details, but the Astros and Rockies have agreed to a swap. Colorado will get 29-year-old 1B Chris Marrero and 28-year-old 2B Alejandro Selen with Houston receiving 21-year-old minor league RHP Charlie Toder, 23-year-old minor league RHP Ty Lloyd and 22-year-old minor league SS Bernardo Sánchez in return. A source close to the trade talks said the two clubs were initially looking to make a bigger deal, but discussions broke off late last night. The two sides reconvened early today and eventually settled on this deal.

Houston will retain a portion of Marrero's remaining contract.

Marrero's career batting average is .279. In 763 games, he has gotten 799 hits, 131 home runs, 426 RBIs and scored 373 runs.
