Astros option Dominguez, Buchanan, Stassi; reassign Correa
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

The Astros optioned third baseman Matt Dominguez and pitchers Jake Buchanan and Max Stassi to the minors Sunday while reassigning shortstop Carlos Correa, infielder Gregorio Petit, catcher Tyler Heineman and pitchers Darin Downs and James Hoyt to minor-league camp.

Dominguez opened last season as the team's starting third baseman but found himself behind in the race for a bench role this spring.

"[Luis] Valbuena had an amazing spring so far and is basically going to be our third baseman and that leaves Matt in competition with some of the other guys for an extra spot on the roster, a spot off the bench, and right now we feel like there’s a couple of other guys ahead of him and he needs to play every day," general manager Jeff Lunhow said, per MLB.com "Right now he’ll go down to Fresno and play third and play some first and be ready when the need arises."

Correa is the team's top-rated prospect but has yet to play above high Class A.

"Carlos is going to be a star player in the big leagues. It’s just a matter of time," Luhnow said. "Having never had an at-bat in Double-A, he needs to go get some regular work in the high minors. He did a great job for us on the field as well as off the field and I think he’s got a lot of fans in the organization and he impressed the big league staff, which is what you want as a young player."

Braves/Astros announce Evan Gattis deal
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

The Braves have traded catcher/outfielder Evan Gattis and pitcher James Hoyt to the Astros for three prospects, the teams announced. CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman confirmed the deal early on Wednesday. The deal was initially reported by the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

The 28-year-old Gattis is coming off a season in which he hit .263/.317/.493 over 369 at-bats. Gattis dealt with back issues during the season, causing him to miss time. Gattis is under team control through the 2018 season. It's unclear where Gattis will play with his new club.

Hoyt, 27, posted a 3.17 ERA over two levels of the minors last year. 

In return, the Braves will receive pitchers Mike Foltynewicz and Andrew Thurman , and third baseman Rio Ruiz

Foltynewicz was rated as the Astros third-best prospect this year according to Baseball America. The 23-year-old pitched in 18 games with Houston last year, posting a 5.30 ERA.

Thurman, 23, posted a 5.38 ERA at Class A last year. The 20-year-old Ruiz .293/.387/.436 over 516 at-bats in High A.

Braves agree to trade Evan Gattis to Astros
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

The Braves have agreed to deal catcher/outfielder Evan Gattis and pitcher James Hoyt to the Astros for three minor-league prospects, CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman has confirmed. The deal was initially reported by David O'Brien of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

Those minor-leaguers include right-hander Mike Foltynewicz, third baseman Rio Ruiz and right-hander Andrew Thurman, per Joel Sherman of the New York Post. Foltynewicz would be a rotation candidate for this upcoming season, Sherman notes. Both sides have agreed to the players involved in the deal, but has not been finalized. Gattis was spotted in Houston on Wednesday undergoing a physical exam in anticipation of a possible trade.

Gattis hit .263/.317/.493 over 369 at-bats, but was hindered by a back injury over the second half of the year. The trade would give Houston three right-handed power hitters in Gattis, George Springer and Chris Carter. Gattis won't be a free-agent until 2019.

The deal is currently pending physicals.
