Scott Kazmir was traded from the Athletics to the Astros in exchange for two minor leaguers yesterday. When catcher Jacob Nottingham and right-handed pitcher Daniel Mengden got the news, they picked up their bags and walked across the field to the other dugout. Nottingham and Mengden started the day with the Astros Class-A Lancaster JetHawks and played against their old teammates that night with the Stockton Ports. Nottingham went 1-4 against his former team. No word on whether or not Mengden will pitch during the teams’ weekend series.
