Brewers' Tyler Heineman: Dealt to Brewers
Heineman was traded by the Astros to the Brewers on Sunday for a player to be named later or cash considerations.
The catcher had been sent down to Houston's minor league camp on March 19, and the minors is where he will report when he joins the Brewers. Heineman didn't do much in big league camp with the Astros this spring, recording just one hit in 11 at-bats, and will likely open the season with Triple-A Colorado Springs.

Astros' Tyler Heineman: Sent back to Triple-A
Heineman has been sent back to minor league camp, MLB.com's Brian McTaggart reports.
Heineman saw just 11 at-bats this spring, only one of which resulted in a base knock. With several veteran options behind the plate in Houston, it's not too surprising to see the 25-year-old once again fail to break camp. He appears destined for another year at Triple-A, where he slashed .259/.344/.351 over 271 at-bats in 2016.
