Hector Velazquez traded to Astros

Hector Velazquez was traded from the Orioles to the Astros for a player to be named later.

Fantasy Impact

Velazquez should add some depth to a tattered Astros' pitching corps. He has had some ups-and-downs in his career, and has pitched to a 3.90 ERA over 166 big-league innings. His control issues and lack of strikeouts certainly limit his upside. He's not worth picking up in most leagues as a result.

Hector Velazquez claimed by Orioles

Pitcher Hector Velazquez was claimed by the Baltimore Orioles after being designated for assignment by the Boston Red Sox late last week.

Fantasy Impact

Velazquez had been a valuable swingman with the Red Sox but pitched to a 5.43 ERA over 56 1/3 innings at the major league level in 2019. With the team adding Colin McHugh, he was the odd man out on the 40-man roster. The rebuilding Orioles will likely give Velazquez a chance to earn a spot in their starting rotation or their bullpen as a long reliever.

Hector Velazquez gets dropped from 40-man roster

The Red Sox designated Hector Velazquez for assignment on Thursday.

Fantasy Impact

The transaction opens up a spot on the 40-man roster for Collin McHugh (elbow), whom the Red Sox signed to a one-year deal. Velazquez finished with a 5.43 ERA in 56 1/3 innings last year with Boston and should not be on anyone's fantasy radar.

Hector Velazquez (back) lands on 10-day IL

The Red Sox have placed Hector Velazquez on the 10-day IL with a lower back strain.

Fantasy Impact

Velazquez was serviceable the past couple of seasons but has a 5.97 ERA thus far in 2019. He isn't fantasy relevant at all.

Hector Velazquez gets crushed by the Astros on Saturday

Hector Velazquez up five runs on three hits while walking two batters in just 1/3 of an inning as the Red Sox lost to the Astros on Saturday by a 7-3 score.

Fantasy Impact

Velazquez saw his ERA balloon up to 5.53 after the outing on Saturday. The 30-year-old righty looks like he will be moving to the bullpen with David Price rejoining the team from the IL and is not worth owning in fantasy.
