The Houston Astros acquired Trey Mancini from the Baltimore Orioles in a three-team deal involving the Tampa Bay Rays, the teams announced Monday.

The three-team trade breaks down as follows:

To Astros To Orioles To Rays
1B Trey Mancini P Seth Johnson (from TB) OF Jose Siri (from HOU)
P Jayden Murray (from TB) P Chayce McDermott (from HOU)

Mancini, 30, is hitting .268/.347/.404 with 10 home runs and 41 RBIs over 92 games this season, primarily playing first base. He's also made a handful of appearances in the corner outfield. For his career, the slugger possesses a .797 OPS with 117 homers.

The 2021 American League Comeback Player of the Year has been in the Orioles organization since he was drafted in the eighth round out of Notre Dame in 2013.

A fan favorite at Camden Yards, Mancini revealed in April 2020 that he had been diagnosed with stage 3 colon cancer, subsequently missing the entire 2020 campaign following a surgical procedure.

Also heading to Houston is pitching prospect Jayden Murray. The 25-year-old right-hander comes over from the Rays organization and was stationed at Triple-A Durham at the time of the deal. In two minor-league levels this year, the former 23rd-round pick owns a 3.24 ERA and 1.19 WHIP over 80 2/3 innings.

The Orioles received a pair of pitching prospects in the trade: Seth Johnson from the Rays and Chayce McDermott from the Astros. The right-handed Johnson, 23, owns a 3.00 ERA and 1.26 WHIP over 27 innings in High-A this year. McDermott, also a 23-year-old righty, has posted a 5.50 ERA and 1.39 WHIP in High-A while acting as a swingman. He was drafted in the fourth round last year.

The Rays landed an everyday center fielder in Jose Siri. The 27-year-old is hitting .178/.238/.304 with three homers and six stolen bases in 2022. Siri fills in for a beleaguered Rays outfield that lost Kevin Kiermaier to season-ending hip surgery last month and is currently without Harold Ramirez.
