    Trade deadline losers

    Santiago Espinal comes to mind right away. Is there any reason to hold Espinal? He has been solid for me but I cant see where he plays now.

    Who else?

    It might take Whit 2 weeks to be able to play in Toronto. I'm not sure he will play everyday, and it might be in the OF if Springer's elbow doesn't improve. Espinal could still start 3-4 times per week at 2/3/S.

    Seranthony looks to be strictly a setup man now and Jhoan Duran gets bumped down the closer depth chart, though he wasn't getting many chances anyway.

    Yuli losing time to Mancini. A shame as he was finally turning around his dismal season.

    It's possible, although I suspect the Astros will rotate quite a bit. Mancini can play OF, Alvarez can play OF, and I doubt they play Aledmys Diaz out there a lot.

    This might hurt Gurriel, but it might instead give him a boost with a break now and then while still getting him in the lineup the vast majority of the time. Fangraphs still has Gurriel in the go-to lineup. Hard to say at this point.
