The New York Mets have traded three minor leaguers to the Houston Astros for infielder J.D. Davis and minor-league infielder Cody Bohanek, both teams announced Sunday.
The Astros acquired outfielder Ross Adolph, catcher Scott Manea and infielder Luis Santana.

The three prospects acquired by the Astros each played in the low minor leagues last season.
