From the Wire….Jennings Traded to Houston

Updated – 4:38pm C.T. – The Non-Tender List is Beginning to Roll In

According to a report from Ken Rosenthal from, the Astros have just traded Willy Taveras, Jason Hirsh and Taylor Buckholtz to the Colorado Rockies for Jason Jennings and Miguel Asencio…..a right handed pitcher.

The Astros will look to sign Jennings to a long-term deal after the prospects they just traded to Houston. Most feel this move is due to Houston losing Andy Pettitte to the Yankees last week. Jennings has stated in recent weeks he would test the market next off-season.

Also, the Texas Rangers have signed Eric Gagne to an incentive laden 1-year deal.

Update – The non-tender list is starting to roll in, the deadline is midnight tonight (11:00pm C.T.). The Braves have decided not to offer a contract to Marcus Giles according to Kevin Kennedy on XM Radio.

Will update the rest of the news and the non-tender list from Tuesday later in the evening…check back later.
