The Houston Astros agreed to a two-year deal with free-agent pitcher Jake Odorizzi that includes a player option for 2023, a source told Jeff Passan of ESPN.

Financial details of the deal are not yet known, but Jon Heyman of MLB Network reports the contract includes many incentives that could make it worth up to $30 million.

Odorizzi, 30, spent the majority of the 2020 season on the injured list, suffering from chest injuries and blisters. The former All-Star struggled over 13 2/3 innings, allowing 10 runs on 16 hits - including four homers - and three walks while striking out 12.

The right-hander enjoyed a career year in 2019, authoring a 3.51 ERA and 3.36 FIP over 30 starts. Odorizzi then accepted the Minnesota Twins' one-year, $17.8-million qualifying offer the following offseason.

The signing comes while the Astros await the diagnosis of left-handed starter Framber Valdez, who is currently dealing with a fractured ring finger on his pitching hand.
