Feldman to sign with the Astros

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.

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.

Feldman, 30, spent his first eight seasons with the Rangers, going 39-44 with a 4.81 ERA in 204 games, including 101 starts. He came up as a reliever but was moved to the rotation in 2008.
