The Astros landed the veteran starting pitcher they've been coveting by agreeing to sign right-hander Scott Feldman, a source confirmed to MLB.com. Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports reports the deal is three years and $30 million.
Astros general manager Jeff Luhnow wouldn't confirm the report.
The 6-foot-7 Feldman is a nine-year veteran who split 2013 between the Cubs and the Orioles, going 12-12 with a 3.86 ERA in 30 starts. He gives the Astros a proven arm to plug into their young rotation with Jarred Cosart, Dallas Keuchel, Brett Oberholtzer and Brad Peacock.
