Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports that the Astros have signed pitcher Wade Miley to a one-year deal. MLB.com’s Mark Feinsand adds that the contract is worth $4.5 million. The Astros are expected to make the official announcement on Friday.
Miley, 32, spent last season with the Brewers. He made only 16 starts due to an oblique injury, but finished with an impressive 2.57 ERA across 80 2/3 innings. The lefty also pitched well in the postseason, yielding just two runs in 14 2/3 innings against the Rockies and Dodgers.
The Astros will slot Miley into the back of the starting rotation.
