Harris and McHugh are both vital cogs in Houston for the Astros, a team that finished third in the league in wins behind Cleveland and Los Angeles.
Meanwhile, Hand could very well net a significant trade return this offseason.
Straily himself has already been traded in the past year.
Claimed off waivers by the Reds from the Padres, the veteran starter turned in a 3.76 ERA and a 1.186 WHIP in 191.1 innings in 2016.
Following the season, Cincinnati flipped him to Miami for a group of three minor league players that included top pitching prospect Luis Castillo as well as Austin Brice and former third-round pick Isaiah White.
Castillo notched a 1.7 WAR, a 3.12 ERA, a 3.41 xFIP, a 3.63 SIERA and a 3.74 FIP in 89.1 innings pitched. The rookie also punched out 9.87 batters per nine innings.
It obviously remains to be seen if the Detroit Tigers will be able to find a player like Straily, who they can flip for a premium return, on the waiver wire.
That being said, the team should be looking to add talent let go by other teams.
It’s not as if Detroit’s 40-man roster is completely set in stone.
