Anthony Bass RP HOU 3 Months
Astros acquired RHP Anthony Bass and a player to be named later and cash considerations from the Padres for a player to be named later or cash considerations.
Bass, 26, owns a 4.08 ERA and 135/80 K/BB ratio over 187 1/3 innings in the majors. He has experience as both a starter and reliever, so he brings some flexibility to Houston's staff.

Padres reliever Anthony Bass was charged with four runs in his second inning of work Tuesday against the Cardinals.
Bass was ripped off tonight. The first hitter to reach against him did so on a strikeout/wild pitch. The second had a clean single, but Yadier Molina followed with a double-play ball, only Everth Cabrera vacated second base way too early on the relay and wasn't given credit for the out. With runners on second and third with one out, Bud Black had Bass intentionally walk Jon Jay, and Daniel Descalso followed with a grand slam. That was certainly a mistake for Bass, but he could have been out of the inning before then and he didn't deserve for his ERA to jump from 2.60 to 3.64 tonight.

Padres manager Bud Black won't rule out Anthony Bass getting a start before the end of the season.
Bass has appeared only in relief since being activated from the disabled list earlier this month, but his shoulder feels fine and he could be ready to stretch it out. He's posted a 4.82 ERA in 14 starts this season.
