Blue Jays acquire Feldman from Astros for minor leaguer

TORONTO (AP) - The Toronto Blue Jays have acquired right-hander Scott Feldman from the Houston Astros for minor league pitcher Lupe Chavez.

The playoff contenders made the deal Monday.

The 33-year-old Feldman is 5-3 with a 2.90 ERA in 26 appearances for the Astros this season. He's made five starts but has pitched almost exclusively out of the bullpen since the end of April.

Feldman is 1-2 with a 3.65 ERA as a starter this year, and he's gone 4-1 with a 2.41 ERA in relief.

The 18-year-old Chavez is in his third professional season, and this was his second with the Gulf Coast Blue Jays.
