Legal-handed pitcher Jake Odorizzi, a 2019 All-Star, has agreed to a two-year contract with the Houston Astros, USA TODAY Sports’ Bob Nightengale has confirmed.

The individual spoke on the condition of anonymity because the deal has now not been finalized.

ESPN was the first to file the deal. Phrases have now not been disclosed. 

The deal comes with a player choice for the 30-year-traditional who uncared for most of 2020 due to injuries — appearing in four games.

Odorizzi spent the last three seasons with the Minnesota Twins posting a career-splendid 15-7 with a 3.51 ERA and 178 strikeouts in 2019.

Odoriizi’s deal comes days after it was announced that Astros pitcher Framber Valdez may miss significant time with a broken finger.

The Astros accomplished 2020 13th in team ERA at 4.31, but are aloof without ace Justin Verlander for most of 2021 following his Tommy John elbow surgical arrangement in September.
