Pedro Baez inks two-year deal with the Astros

Pedro Baez signed a two-year deal with the Houston Astros, per Bob Nightengale.

Fantasy Impact

The Astros were said to have been aggressive in their pursuit of Liam Hendriks, who ended up signing with the White Sox. So Houston decided to bring in Baez, who will likely serve as the setup man in front of Ryan Pressly in 2021 for the Astros. Baez logged a 3.18 ERA and 1.00 WHIP over 17 innings with the World Champion Los Angeles Dodgers last season.

Pedro Baez heads to the IL with groin strain

Pedro Baez has landed on the 10-day injured list with a right groin strain. Josh Sborz was recalled in a corresponding move.

Fantasy Impact

It appears Baez tweaked his groin in Wednesday's appearance against the Mariners. Over 11.1 innings this year, Baez clocked a 3.97 ERA, 1.059 WHIP, and an 8:5 K/BB ratio with one save.

Pedro Baez records first save Thursday

Pedro Baez picked up the save Thursday after holding the Diamondbacks to one walk during a scoreless ninth inning.

Fantasy Impact

Kenley Jansen was unavailable for this game, as he'd appeared in the team's previous three contests. So, Baez was summoned to close the game with a three-run lead. Of course, Jansen still has the closer's role in Los Angeles.
