Shortly after the Conger trade, the Astros made a claim on Will Harris from the Diamondbacks.  Luhnow said that “moves are always validated by me if after I do the deal, other GM’s call and ask about the player. I got several calls about Harris. He has value to us and other teams.”

Luhnow also mentioned that the local bloggers in Houston have a better idea as to the value of Will Harris, than the casual fan or national media. He represents a quality major league arm that will help the Astros not lose the close games after the starter leaves.

“We wanted to build up bullpen depth…So we are not forced into putting young players with no experience in position of taking important innings.”
