  • Astros' Rylan Bannon: Picked up by Houston

    The Astros claimed Bannon off waivers from the Cubs on Friday, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports.

    Two weeks after being claimed by the Cubs from Atlanta, Bannon will now be on the move to Houston. Bannon did well during his time in Triple-A last season, though it's hard to imagine him getting consistent playing time in the Astros' star-studded infield. If anything, he'll compete with Mauricio Dubon and David Hensley for reps as a backup infielder.

  • Astros' Jose Abreu: Bound for Houston

    Abreu and the Astros agreed Monday on a three-year contract, Bob Nightengale of USA Today reports. The deal is worth around $60 million, according to Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle.

    With Yuli Gurriel (knee) becoming a free agent this winter, the Astros will turn to another mid-30s veteran in Abreu to step in as their everyday first baseman in 2023. Though his numbers have tapered off a bit since his American League MVP-winning campaign during the pandemic-shortened 2020 season, Abreu remained a well above league-average performer at the dish in his final two years with the White Sox. Over 679 plate appearances in 2022, Abreu slashed .304/.378/.446 with 15 home runs, 75 RBI and 85 runs en route to finishing with a 137 wRC+. A return to the 30-plus home-run production he delivered during his peak years with Chicago may not be attainable as he enters the back half of his thirties, but Abreu could see his RBI and run totals climb while he's surrounded by a more talented collection of hitters in Houston.

  • Astros' Dixon Machado: Signs minors deal with Houston

    Machado signed a minor-league contract with the Astros on Tuesday, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports.

    Machado's deal includes an invitation to big-league camp. The 30-year-old has a strong defensive reputation but offers very little at the plate, hitting .226/.285/.292 in 177 career major-league games. He's unlikely to earn anything more than a bench role in Houston and would have minimal fantasy value even if he manages to secure a roster spot.

  • Astros' Austin Davis: Signs with Astros

    Davis signed a minor-league contract with the Astros on Wednesday, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports.

    Davis elected free agency in September after being designated for assignment by Minnesota, but he'll serve as a non-roster invitee during spring training in 2023 after signing with the Astros. Over 52 appearances (three starts) between the Red Sox and Twins last year, he posted a 5.79 ERA and 1.61 WHIP in 56 innings.

  • Astros' J.P. France: Joins 40-man roster

    France was added to the Astros' 40-man roster Tuesday, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports.

    Already 27 years old and with zero MLB experience, France was the only minor leaguer the Astros needed to shield from the Rule 5 draft. He had a 3.90 ERA, 1.36 WHIP and 136:51 K:BB in 110.2 innings at Triple-A while splitting time between the rotation and bullpen.

  • Astros' Martin Maldonado: Undergoes hernia surgery

    Maldonado underwent surgery Tuesday to repair a sports hernia, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports.

    Maldonado played through the injury late in the year, though you wouldn't necessarily be able to tell based on his numbers. His 85 wRC+ in the second half wasn't a strong mark, though it was much better than his 61 wRC+ in the first half. The defense-first catcher is expected to be fully recovered from the procedure in time for spring training in 2023.
