The Cincinnati Reds acquired pitcher Brandon Bailey from the Houston Astros for cash.

What does it give the Cincinnati Reds
Bailey, 26, made his MLB debut in 2020 and performed well in five appearances. He should compete for a bullpen role with the Reds in '21.

What does it give the Houston Astros
The Astros decided that Bailey was not in their long-range plans, so they took cash back from the Reds and moved him on.

Fantasy impact
Bailey might carve out a role as a reliever in Cincinnati, but he should not be drafted in most league formats until he becomes a prominent member of their bullpen.
