The Houston Astros have officially signed starting pitcher Jake Odorizzi to a two-year contract potentially worth up to $30 million.
MLB Network reported the financial numbers could be met in the first two years if the third-year buyout is included and he hits his incentives.
Odorizzi played in just four games last season and posted an ugly 6.59 ERA across 13.2 innings pitched.
However, he was much better in 2019 and Houston certainly took that into consideration.
The Astros may have lost Framber Valdez for the entire season, so they’ll need Odorizzi to step up in the rotation.
In terms of fantasy Odorizzi may not be such a hot target in most standard leagues, but if he gets hot he’ll be a top choice on the waiver wire.
