Reliever Pedro Baez reaches 2-year deal with Houston Astros, sources say

Right-handed reliever Pedro Baez has agreed to a two-year contract with the Houston Astros, sources confirmed to ESPN’s Jeff Passan.

The deal includes an option, sources said, and has a number of escalators and a buyout. It is expected to fall in the $12-14 million guaranteed range.

Baez, 32, finished the 2020 season as the third-longest-tenured member of the Los Angeles Dodgers organization, behind only Clayton Kershaw and Kenley Jansen.

The reached terms in November, but it took Baez this long to finalize the agreement.

See, I'd have gone with "It's actually just a one-year deal, but it will take two years".

But AG1F and Face are good, too.

$6-7 million per year? Wow. Good riddance. I hope he keeps up his tradition of allowing his inherited runners to score in the playoffs.
