The Houston Astros have traded relief pitcher Dan
Wheeler to the Tampa Bay Devil Rays in exchange for infielder Ty
Wigginton's hitting two-seventy-five (.275) with 16 homers and
49 R-B-Is. That's coming off a career-high 24 homers last year.
The trade could signal the end of Morgan Ensberg's career in
Houston. Ensberg, who's started 52 games at third, is hitting
two-thirty-two (.232) with eight home runs. He's spent his entire
seven-year career with Houston and was an All-Star in 2005.
Wheeler leads the Astros with 11 saves but had blown four for
Houston this season.
