The Astros are willing to trade Jake Marisnick for a starting pitcher.
Marisnick is a young and cheap outfielder who could draw interest from teams who may not land any of the center field free agents that are available on the open market. His main skill is his speed and stolen base ability but his middling batting average subtracts any bonus he may get for his speed. Houston is likely to only get a number four or five starter in return. Analysis: Matt Selz
