Bullpen arm Chris Devenski has reached a settlement with the Houston Astros for $1.525MM. The once highly dominant reliever had one really impressive year in 2016 where he was worth (surprisingly high for a reliever) 2.8 fWAR. In 2017 and 2018, he wasn’t his 2016 self, only pitching to a WHIP of 3.49 and 4.49 respectively. This deal can been seen as a buy low with upside for the Astros as the it also includes a club option for $2.625MM which can increase by $100K if he appears in 60 games in 2019.
