Astros Offseason In Review: Houston Astros

By Steve Adams [March 19, 2015 at 3:49pm CDT]

The Astros escaped the cellar in the AL West last season, though they did so due largely to a barrage of injuries on what was expected to be a contending Rangers team. Nevertheless, Houston was a much-improved club in 2014, and they’ll likely be even better in 2015 following an active offseason.

Major League Signings

Jed Lowrie, SS: Three years, $23MM
Luke Gregerson, RHP: Three years, $18.5MM
