White Sox acquire reliever Myers from Houston

Posted: Updated:

DETROIT (AP) - The Chicago White Sox have acquired Houston reliever Brett Myers for two minor league pitchers and a player to be named.

Myers had 19 saves and a 3.52 ERA for the Astros this season and will try to bolster an inexperienced Chicago bullpen. Addison Reed, Chicago's 23-year-old closer, has 15 saves but a 4.24 ERA. Rookie Nate Jones has a 3.57 ERA in 35 appearances.

The White Sox entered Saturday's game at Detroit with a half-game lead on the Tigers atop the AL Central. The Astros are in last place in the NL Central and had little need to keep Myers, a 31-year-old right-hander.

Houston receives right-hander Matt Heidenreich and left-hander Blair Walters. Chicago also receives cash considerations from Houston in the deal.
