The Pirates got right-handers Joe Musgrove and Michael Feliz, third baseman Colin Moran and outfielder Jason Martin for their ace.
Analysis: The 25-year-old is a career .290 hitter in the minor leagues since Miami selected him in the first round of the 2013 draft. Houston acquired Moran in a deal for pitcher Jarred Cosart and infielder Enrique Hernandez in 2014, and he took a step forward last season by hitting 18 home runs for Triple-A Fresno.
