The Houston Astros acquired pitcher Brooks Raley from the Cincinnati Reds for a player to be named later (Fredy Medina - 11/20/20).

What does it give the Houston Astros
The Astros hope Raley can provide some bullpen depth from the left side. The 32-year-old left-hander has 18 games of experience in MLB.

What does it give the Cincinnati Reds
The Reds recently designated Raley for assignment, so they were at least able to get back a future asset. He was struggling in '20.

Fantasy impact
There is no fantasy impact here, as Raley will continue to be a depth reliever in the big leagues.
