I believe he can still be non-tendered by HOU as well.

Interesting.

Maybe they'd non-tender him and sign him at a lower number. They need MLB-level arms. Could be another Lucas Harrell.

Thank You Houston!

Your welcome, signed all Astros fans. That quality of a starter for 900K while forcing their better prospects to earn a MLB job? It's a no brainer. Jeff Luhnow is no fool.

Is that what's passing for "quality" these days? A good half season and one amazing game?

It'll be a great bar story for him.

It's a decent pickup for the Astros, but they have massive rotation problems and should be alert for this type of opportunity. We don't have those problems.
