The Houston Astros and reliever Pedro Baez agreed to a two-year contract, pending a physical, according to Jorge Castillo of the Los Angeles Times.

The pact, which includes an option, escalators, and a buyout, is expected to be worth $12 million to $14 million in guarantees, reports Jeff Passan of ESPN.

Baez spent the first seven years of his career with the Los Angeles Dodgers.
