The Blue Jays have been active on deadline day acquiring a couple different pitchers from the Astros and Dodgers respectively.

The Toronto Blue Jays acquired right-hander Scott Feldman from the Houston Astros for right-handed pitching prospect Guadalupe Chavez.

Feldman has a 2.90 ERA with 42 strikeouts and 13 walks in 62 innings with Houston this year. The 33-year-old has started five games for the Astros, but has mostly pitched out of the bullpen. He has extensive experience as a starter dating back to 2008 when he broke in with the Texas Rangers. He spent the 2015 season in Houston’s starting rotation, posting a 3.90 ERA in 18 starts.

Feldman earns $8 million in 2016, after which he’s set to hit free agency.

Guadalupe Chavez has a 1.69 ERA in six starts with the Gulf Coast League Blue Jays. The 18-year-old is in his third professional season.

The Jays have also traded pitcher Jesse Chavez and cash to the Los Angeles Dodgers for right-hander Mike Bolsinger.
