Lindstrom Dealt to Astros for Two Minor Leaguers and PTBNL

    It's official. The Marlins have traded reliever Matt Lindstrom to the Houston Astros for a pair of minor-leaguers and a player to be named later.

    Houston is giving up right-hander Robert Bono and shortstop Luis Bryan.

    Bono spent last season at Single A Lexington (Ky.), going 10-8 in 25 starts with a 3.20 ERA. He was Houston's 11th-round draft pick in 2007. Bryan, 19, was with Houston's Gulf Coast League team, hitting .340 in 105 at bats.

    Larry Beinfest, the Marlins' president of baseball operations, said the players are "both guys with upsides.

   The Marlins roster now stands at 39 players, which allows them to make a pick in Thursday's Rule 5 draft.
