Report: Astros’ Maxwell traded to Royals
The Astros have traded outfielder Justin Maxwell to the Royals, according to a Tweet by Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports.
Maxwell was hitting .241 with two homers and four home runs in 40 games, but missed two months of the season with a fractured hand. The 29-year-old outfielder led the Astros with 18 home runs last year after being acquired off waivers from the Nationals.
